Sorry I haven't posted anything here for a while now, but you know...sometimes life gets in the way...LOL. But I have not been exactly idle in my craft room. I have been working on a few birthday cards. I just can't show them to you yet until the friends I was making the cards for have received them. And of course I was also working on the card below--this I can show you now...tee hee.
This is a midway reminder by the way--we're halfway into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The theme is...Some like it HOT. You have another week to get your entries in. Visit the challenge blog HERE to get more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun.
And if you need inspirations, check out the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates--Team A was posted last week HERE and Team B is being posted today HERE.
Here's the card that I came up with...
I was hoping that I could show newer images from Magnolia's latest stamp collection, but I don't have any yet...rats! so these adorable images I'm featuring are from past collections.
- Hooked Tilda from the Summer Memories Collection 2012
- Fence and Summer Background from the Summer and Sea Collection 2008
- Waterlily Tilda from the Summer Memories Collection 2012
