April Showers Bring May Flowers - Magnolia-licious 'Bingo'


We're kicking off a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and it's a 'Bingo' Challenge.  To get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Also have a look at what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

I know the calendar says it's still winter, but we've been having higher-than-normal temperatures here that it feel like spring, so my card has a spring theme.

I've made another Peek-A-Boo card, but this time I've made a Double Peek-A-Boo card.  

Instead of just the one window, I've created two windows.

A really short video to show how the card works.

(Peek-A-Boo Card Tutorial HERE, if you're interested, but of course use two dies instead of just one to create the two windows.)

Hope you can join our challenge.  Here's the Bingo board...

You know how this works.  Choose any three items in a row--horizontally, vertically or diagonally--and include them on your card/project.  For my card, I've chosen to go with the middle horizontal row of Lace, Diecuts and Flowers.

Close-ups of the Magnolia images I'm featuring:

- Drip Drop Tilda is a Special Stamp from Sweden edition

- For You Tilda is from the Lost and Found Collection 2013
I meant to have Tilda's jumper in green and her blouse in yellow, but I made a mistake in starting to colour her blouse in green and by the time I realized it, it was too late...sigh.  And I didn't want to start over...oh well.

The stamps for both of these images and other Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she will be happy to bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Candybeans and Saturated Canary.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia DoohickeyWild Rose Studio.  Have a look!
