Keepin' It Reel...Gone Fishing' - Magnolia-licious 'Anchors Aweigh'


Today we're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The new theme is 'Anchors Aweigh.'  For complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site.  Don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

I had no idea what I was going to make for this challenge and I was getting worried.  Then Paulette of TLC Creations posted this freebie 'Keepin it Reel gone fishin' sentiment on her blog and a light bulb went off in my head.  So...inspired by the sentiment (thank you, Paulette!) here's the card I came up with.

The inside looks like this...

And another sentiment with a play on words 'Good things come to those who bait'--I love sentiments with a play on words in them!

Here are close-ups of the Magnolia Stamps images being featured:

- Hooked Tilda from the Summer Memories Collection 2012

- Gone Fishing Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection 2013

Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious--Hooked Tilda is in stock, but Gone Fishing Tilda is out of stock.  Diana carries a large selection of other both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
