You're Purr-fect For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge



Hello Everyone!! It's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge. The challenge is being hosted by the talented Maria who has chosen this wonderful photo to inspire us all.






I  hope it inspires you to play along with us! All you need to do is to use a Magnolia image on your card or project. Your entry will give you the opportunity to be the lucky winner of a Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Maggies!  Diana has the new Summer Memories Collection in stock.   .   . Regular Size and Minis too!  Diana also has the new Freedom Liberty Tilda and accessory stamps to match on pre-order! You don't want to miss out on these cuties!


For my card, I used Shabby Princess Heartfelt Digi Design Papers and Echo Park Life is Good Digi Design Papers. I stamped the teal design paper with tiger stripes using Inkadinkado #99531 Animal Skins Clear Stamp Set.  Wild Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  For the frame behind Tilda, I used Hot Off The Press Layered Labels Template. After tracing and cutting out the Lacey Label, I stamped it using Sandylion French Impressions Clear Stamp Set and then added lavender rhinestones from Recollections. "You're purr-fect" was stamped using Studio G - VS4911 Series 24 Clear Stamp Set.  For the heart border, I used EK Success Arrow Slim Edger Punch. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and Recollections. The ribbon is from JoAnns. The store near me had a lot of the Sold By The Spool Ribbons marked down to 97 cents, and the ribbon that I used was one of them.

Love Is In The Air For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge



Hello Everyone! I'm sorry that I  haven't posted a card in awhile, but my Mother-in-law,
Suzanne Ruth Galle Laverty, passed away the end of April. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at 26 and lived with it for 48 years.  Throughout her life, her faith in God was strong.  She was always grateful and felt very blessed.  I can't tell you how much she will be missed.


Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the very talented  Jacque.  She has created this wonderful sketch for us to use.




I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of this week's wonderful prize from Jacobi NL.


For my card, I have rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left.  I have used My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Design Papers. Rose Scent Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  For the frame that Tilda is sitting on, I used Hot Off The Press Layered Labels Template. After tracing and cutting out Fancy Label A, I stamped it using Sandylion French Impressions Clear Stamp Set and then added pearls from Hero Arts. The "LOVE" was stamped using Impression Obsession WP-17 Sentiments II Clear Stamp Set. This a great set to have, because it has all sorts of words that you can combine or use separately. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Recollections, and All Natural Accents. The lace is from my stash.


Thank you for stopping by to visit me! I'll be by to visit your blogs soon! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Big Hugs,
Suzan
