Happy 60th, Danielle


Just a reminder of the current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme is 'Anything Goes'--which is probably just about everyone's favorite.  Not sure if it's mine though...tee hee.  Anyway you still have a bit of time left to join in the fun. Details can be found at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Have a look also at the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates for inspirations.  This week it's Team B's turn to post their cards...and that means me!

This was the card that I made for my friend Danielle.  It was a milestone birthday so I wanted to make her something special.  Also, I had hoped to get it to her in time, but ahem...I was late with it.  (Sorry, Danielle!)

I drew some Zentangle patterns to make the figure 60.  (I'm really liking Zentangle, Diana!)  Would love to try to do more tangling if I can just find the time...LOL.

This is another easel card from me.  Tee hee...it's my fave type of cards, so there are lots of these on my blog.

I'm featuring a couple of adorable Magnolia images here:


Princess Pea Tilda from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
- Tilda Binding Flowers from the Special Moments Collection 2013
