Snow Tweet

Hello My Crafty Peeps and Welcome to my Magnolia-licious Inspiration post.

Happy Friday!!!  I have for you today, my second Christmas card so far this year.  I've already fallen behind as I had hoped to make one per month but there is time to make up for it, right?

Isn't this the most adorable image?  This is Winnie Heavenly-Snow Tweet by Polkadoodles.  I just love her because I picture this as me, sitting in the snow and watching nature, feeding the birds and hoping some will get close enough.  The angel part is a bit of a stretch though.  :P

I have colored this scene with Distress Inks and Copic Markers, Star Dust Stickles and a Gelly Roll pen for the snow.

For the dies I have used Magnolia DooHickeys from Club 2 and Vintage Box 6, and Spellbinders Labels 8.

Distress Inks:  Aged Mahogany, Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Forest Moss, Fossilized Amber, Gathered Twigs, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Stormy Sky, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

Copic Markers: N0, N2

Don't forget about our March challenge where the theme is Use Your Favorite Stamp.  You can get all of the details HERE.  I hope you will join us and share your talent.  
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I would appreciate you letting me know what you think.  I hope you'll have a most wonderful weekend.

It's Not About The Destination

(Be sure to go all the way to the end to see something really cool)

Welcome Everyone!  I hope you are having a most fantastic day!

The Magnolia-licious Challenge is under way and our theme for this month is, Your Favorite Magnolia Stamp.  

Hmm...  I don't know about you, but I don't have one favorite.  I'm pretty sure it's impossible.  My favorite is whichever one I'm coloring at that moment.  I've been addicted to these gorgeous stamps since I first laid eyes on a Magnolia Ink magazine in December of 2010 and every one I own has a special place in my heart.  For example...

I made this card for my youngest daughter Ashley.  She is the traveler of our family and before the end of this month, she will be moving to Pennsylvania to advance her career.  I am so happy for her and proud of her achievements, but also sad to see my baby go.

This is Let's Go! Tilda from the 2019 Let's Go collection.  I believe she's wondering, "where to next?"  Also from this collection is the adorable Taxi (the Journey Text that comes with it can be seen below on one of the tags).  The Eiffel Tower in the background is part of the 2017 World Magnolia Day collection, With Love From Paris.

The Magnolia DooHickeys dies are: Tilda Tag, Sakura Lanterns (branch) and Club #5 (flower).

Isn't this just the coolest?  You can add lights to any card with Memory Lights.  If I had more, I would have put some in the headlights too.  You can add several lights to one system and they're super simple to install.  Click on the link and it will take you right to it.

Come on and join our challenge for your chance to win $20 to spend at the Magnolia-licious Store and to be our Guest Designer for the May challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a most wonderful day!

Roller Coaster Tilda

Hello Everyone!

Happy Monday to you!  I hope your week is starting out great and hope your weekend was awesome.

 Today I have a card I made for my sister's birthday.  Her and I have spent MANY hours waiting in lines for roller coasters and so I absolutely had to color Roller Coaster Tilda from the 2018 Class Trip collection.  Isn't she the cutest?

 I have used Distress Inks to color and accent everything.

 All dies I have used to make this, except the rectangle, are Magnolia DooHickeys Dies and include Flag & Cloud, Tilda Tag, Insta Strips, Balloons from Club #5, Small Cloud from Club #4, Sunshine from Club #10.

 Distress Inks: Aged mahogany, Antique Linen, Barn Door, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Hickory Smoke, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

Thank You So Much for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back again tomorrow and see what I've made for the new Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Have a wonderful day!
