I'm Beary Happy We're Friends For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge



Hello  Everyone! I've been wanting to use Teddy Bear Love Tilda ever since in came out!! The cute image brought back fond memories of when I use to collect Muffy Bears. One of the first Christmases my hubby and I celebrated together, my hubby bought the Christmas Edition Muffy Bear for me. He took it out of the box and put it under the tree for me to find.  He threw the box that it came in away not knowing that it should be kept!! Well, my hubby ended up writing the company to get me a replacement box.  He asked if he could please get one, so he could get out of the dog house. The company sent out a new box and wrote a sweet letter saying that they hoped the box would help him get out of the dog house. LOL!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the talented Deb. This week's challenge is Pretty Spring Pastels . I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of one of this week's wonderful prizes from Embellishments DE and Letraset.

For my card, I used Safari Girl Design Papers from Best Creation Inc. Teddy Bear Love Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I cut two frames using the Cindy Lou Cricut Cartridge <Frame - Heart>, one at 3 1/2" and the other at 3 3/4". I embossed the frames using Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The lace is from JoAnns. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, All Natural Accents and from my stash.

For my card, I used Echo Park Summer Days Digi Design Papers. Hello Little Butterfly Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The scalloped border was cut using Tilda's Lace Doohickey. I decided to use it, because it matched the lace on Tilda's dress.

Lily Princess For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge


Hello Everyone!!  I hope you all are ready for the arrival of the Easter Bunny! I bought my dog, Woody, a little pink bunny toy. It's funny, he loves pink toys!! When you pull the tail of the bunny, it hops forward. Woody and I have been having so much fun playing with it. I pull the tail while Woody patiently watches. Woody lets it hop across the floor for a little bit and then grabs it and throws it up in the air. I think I'm going to have to get a couple more of these little bunnies after Easter. LOL!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the talented Mina. This week's challenge is Anything Goes. I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be this week's lucky winner of a wonderful prize from Simon Says Stamps.

For my card, I used Nitwit Promises Digi Design Papers. I just love the blue and purple combination. Princess of the Valley Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped twice. Once on the Butterfly Design Paper and again on Cryogen White Card Stock. The Tilda stamped on the Cryogen White was colored with Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. It was cut out and glued on top of the image stamped on the Design Paper. I did this, because I knew that I wasn't going to be able to cut out all the small details and I didn't want anything to be left out of this cute image. The two larger flowers were made from scraps of the Design Papers. The other flowers are from my stash and Wild Orchid Crafts. The lace and ribbon is also from my stash. I tied the double looped bow using the Bow Easy. I made the butterfly stickpin using some beads from a bead kit that I bought at JoAnns. I found the bead kit in the dollar section.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me!! I always love hearing from you!  I hope to see you back here on Tuesday for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspirational Challenge!!




Have a wonderful Spring weekend!! And, a blessed Easter Day!!


Big Hugs,
Suzan
