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
The stamps for both the above images 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'll be happy to bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey, Wild Rose Studio.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
