Have I Toad You Lately...? - Magnolia-licious 'Add An Animal'


It's the 4th Tuesday of the month which means there's a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The new theme is 'Add An Animal.'  For complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site.  Check out also the cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

This is what I came up with for the challenge.

Note the cute sentiment accompanying the image...hee hee.  It's from that song sung by Rod Stewart/Van Morrison.

A look at how I've decorated the inside of my card.

Here are close-ups of those featured adorable Tildas...

- Tilda With Prince Froggy from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013

- Tilda With Maggie the Monkey from the Animals of the Year Collection 2014
