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

Hey there Miss Candy! How have you been? I do believe Autumn is quickly moving towards Winter here in Richmond, VA. It's been cold (50 degrees...hehe...that's COLD for me!) and rainy!! Great weather for staying inside and making cards! Oh...and speaking of cards...this is too stinkin' cute! I've loved this Tilda since she first came out...and those teensy buttons you used couldn't be more perfect!! I need to pull out one of my sweet Tildas and join in the fun! Sending big hugs your way, sugar!! Pat Frank
