Magnolia-licious Challenge


Welcome to another challenge at Magnolia-licious and this week we'd like to see your Happy Halloween cards!!  I chose to get Tilda dressed up as an orange ladybug.  I even looked up pics on the internet to make sure some ladybugs were orange and YAY I found lots.  LOL!!  Ok so maybe she was already "Ladybug Tilda" but it still makes a good costume.  She's available in Diana's shop but only as a mini right now.

A friend of  mine gave me those ghosts - aren't they CUTE?!  Thanks friend!! 

Here is this week's photo inspiration.  I love this picture!!  If you get a chance, you'll have to check out the other Halloween inspiration that my teamies have come up with at the Magnolia-licious challenge blog.

And Diana will randomly draw a winner for a special sur-prize!!

I think this week I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Spots and Dots

Thanks for stopping by this week and hope to see your card in the next few weeks!!  Hugs!

Magnolia-licious Color Inspiration

Well you may have had a sneak peek at my card earlier today but here it is again with more info.   LOL!!  Welcome back to another challenge at Magnolia-licious and this week we have a color challenge for you.  

Red, Brown and Yellow

At first I was freaked right out but then my sister sent me some Bo Bunny "Apple Cider" papers and it was perfect for this challenge!!   I paired up these papers with the cutest sister/brother stamp combo called "Cuddly Siblings" (in stock) and "Butterfly Background #2", which is not in stock but it's possible that Diana would bring it in if you asked.

Isn't this just gorgeous?  I meant that the inspiration photo.  LOL!  I did lean more towards the brown of the challenge but you can play any way you like. 

The girls did an amazing job over at the Magnolia-licious challenge blog if you need more inspiration.  Also Diana will be giving away one random special surprise and you can bet that it's well worth your time. 

Diana is now taking pre-orders of the new collection A Christmas Story.  They will be in this week and sent out a few days later.  OMG are they ever stinkin' cute!  I got far too many but I love them all!  There's also some gorgeous papers in this collection as well.  Just sayin'.  :)

Hope to see you out this week!!

Stamps:  Magnolia-licious "Cuddly Siblings" and "Butterfly Background #2"
Paper:  Bo Bunny "Apple Cider"
Embellishments:  Bo Bunny "Wraps" and brown flower, Petaloo leaves, raffia, misc ribbon, Bo Bunny badge, TH Tag, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Momenta metal leaf.

Copics:  I wrote them down and now I can't find them but let me know if there's a particular combo you're interested in and I'll figure it out.

Just a quick post today with a card I made for my stepdaughter's 17th birthday (yikes!).  LOL!  It's so hard to make teen cards no matter a boy or girl but I was relieved with how this one turned out.  It is much easier to use an image that's fun to color!

I'm just going to join these few challenges:

Deep Ocean Challenge - More Than 2 Colors - easier challenged then done by the way!  Hence why it's a challenge.  LOL!

Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything goes - don't you just love those WO daffodils? ***

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
