Magnolia-licious Challenge

Good Morning peoples!!

Do you know we are still having 
warm summer days here?
No rain for 3 months now!

I'm sure we will get a blast of bad weather
any day . . .
The great thing about this time of year
is that we can actually go out and enjoy
what ever we are doing. No more
sitting in the house with the AC and
hiding from outside LOL


Still my turn for the CHALLENGE
This time I chose buttons on your cards :o)
Any number of them or any colour.
I found this sweet picture on Pinterest
just to show you what you could do with
buttons in your home:

Here is my card for today:

My camera is still broken but my husband has
taped it together for me!
The pictures are a bit better now.

from the Summer Memories Collection.

My paper is Bassil card stock
and Design Paper by Echo Park.
Buttons are all from my stash.

As you can see this is a Criss Cross card today.
Another Clean and Simple one.
Here is close up of Tilda:

She has four buttons on her shorts
which I put wee red buttons on.
I also used buttons on my pull out,
as well as a few on the inside.

I used MS bubble punch for design on the cross over.
Spellbinders Fancy Labels for the pull out,
and another Spellbinder die behind ( Fleur Delis Motifs ) Tilda and on the inside.

Still the pics aren't good but I think much better than before.
I'm sorry about this - I don't know when I can buy
a new camera.

Thank you for visiting me.
I really love to read your comments
and appreciate them all very much.

Love, Candy

Hi Blogging Friends,

It was my turn to pick the Challenges
at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog
this month.

Here is my photo for colours:

I love the way this picture looks
so homey and comfortable.

The colours are anything that you see:
shades of pink, green, cream, white
a few different shades of brown.

My attempt at this Challenge of mine
was a huge comedy of errors from the start!!

I use digital papers most of the time.
As I was printing them out my printer
told me I was out of ink!
So they are all wishy washy!

As I was colouring my wonderful image - 
" Little Tilda " #241 from the  'Little Christmas
Collection, several of my Copic Pens
ran dry :o(
All my flesh colours and my soft pinks.
Those are the colours I use the most.
I have to place an order for inks now.

Remember my camera broke
last Challenge - well I haven't 
been able to buy a new one yet, so
I asked someone else to take the pictures.
They were so bad the only one that
you could see was the front of the card.
And it looks awful!

I have been sitting here since Tuesday wondering
if I should even post, but I was afraid some of
you would come looking and wonder what the 
heck I was up to without one.

So here is my poor poor Little Tilda:

Such a sweet little one. 
I will use her again soon in
a new card, hopefully with all my
issues corrected!

I used a small silver corner,
some 'wrinkled' pink seam  binding
with a lovely blingy stone on the top,
plus rhinestones all around the oval.
The inside has the same paper with
a sentiment on the left and an
oval just like this one; with all the
rhinestones, on the right side.

Oh dear - she looks so much better
in real life. Her wings are all sparkly
with Diamond Dust too.

All I can say is I am so sorry I botched
this card up so bad :o(
