4th Tuesday at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

Hello Friends and Maggie Lovers :o)

It is almost the end of January!
I can't get over how the months fly by.

We don't have much snow,
however walking is very treacherous 
with the inch or more of ice lying on it!

Hope the rest of you are doing OK? 


is ready today.
I hope you will 'come on over' and check
out the DT's cards;
they are smashing as always!!

This month is Cabio's turn once again.
Here is her CHALLENGE picture:

I think you will notice that the DT
had many different ideas.

So, here is my try at it:

Here is a close up of Tilda:

Gosh, her hair is darker in real life.
I don't know why it isn't in the photo? 
I am not at all happy with the shadow under
Tilda :o(  Should have gone with a bench!!

On we go to the inside. This is the left
side of the card:

and here is the RHS:

The little pink bird is a mirror
from Heide Swapp!

Tilda with cozy heart #3043
Sentiment: You've stollen my heart #744

I got my stamps from 
at her fantastic online store!

( it seems both of these stamps are sold out
at the moment. I am sure Diana has more coming -
or you can get in touch with her and order them)


We always have a contest over at the CHALLENGE BLOG
Diana gives out a

to one lucky person chosen at random.
Give our Challenge a try any time.
Maybe you will be the winner!

The whole DESIGN TEAM is listed
on the right hand side of my blog.
You may click on their names and 
be taken right to them.

So that's it from me today.
See you soon.

Happy New Year!!

Hello and Happy New Year!

I have missed you all sooo much.

It has been 6 months almost to the day
since I did my last post :o(
Other than writing the blog posts
for Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog,
I haven't been able to do much of anything.

So I said ENOUGH of THAT and
am trying my hand at making cards again....
I hope you will bear with me cause they
are not going to be up to the quality
I like them to be.
There are several things I still can't do/
or do well

Now to the purpose of my post!

BLOG OF 2012!

This month it is our lovely CABIO'S turn to pick
the DT'S Challenges. 

she has chosen: PINK WHITE and RED.

Here is her picture for inspiration:

I have used Tilda with Many Hearts
# 308
From last years 

She is not in stock at the moment,
but you all know to just get in touch
with Diana and she will
order it in for you.

DIANA has the largest online store
The choices are fantastic, she is the only
online Store (in North America) to sell Mini Magnolia's.
Her service is the best!

Here is the front of my card:

Supplies used:

Bo Bunny DP
SU card stock - Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette
Ink - London Fog
Pins, ribbon, charms and lace - stash
Crystal Lacquer

Here is a close picture of Tilda:

Only when I was taking the pictures
did I notice I forgot the stickles 
on her petticoat!
I have since added them.

Here is the corner with ribbon and pins:

I snipped off the pointed end
of the pin.

I used the Crystal Lacquer
on all of the hearts on the DP.
I am hoping you can see them here:

Here is the inside. The charm
reads - Made with Love:

It is very plain and I couldn't show
you the right hand side as it was
written on and is now in the mail.
I do hope to be able to carry on
so I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Candy
