Little Darlings Saturated Canary–Little Ladybug

P1050416
Hello there everyone!  I'm excited to be able to share with you one of the cards that I made for Angie and the Little Darlings Booth at CHA.  It features Little Lady Bug and she is certainly a favorite for so many of us!
CHA was incredibly exciting, not only because I was able to work along side my buddies, Angie, Mindy and Sharon (my daughter was even able to play with us for a couple of days) but because it was so fantastic
being a part of the Little Darlings success.  The company, along with Angie, her beautiful stamps and the gorgeous papers, Summer Sorbet and Fruit Basket created by our very own Mindy stole the show!  In fact, the Little Darlings Booth won ANOTHER award!  Such an honor!!  A huge congratulations to you Angie!!
Angie took everyone, including Suzanne and our team mate Sandie out for a fabulous dinner too…and I have plenty of stories to tell…but I won’t…unless there’s cash involved, of course. Winking smile

OK!! That is it for me today! Thank you so much for coming by for a visit! Smile

Magnolia-licious Photo Inspiration Challenge

It’s  time again for another fun Magnolia-licious Photo Inspiration Challenge and my wonderful teamie, Chris has inspired us with a gorgeous winter scene of lush blues and pinks to play with.
 image
I was inspired by the chilly winter blues, so my card today is mostly blue..and a teeny

bit of pink tossed in too! Ha!! Plus…Ice Cream is cold, right? Winking smile

Tilda with Big Cup of Ice Cream
I’ve used Tilda with Big Cup of Ice Cream from the 2013 Magnolia Love Collection. I just checked the Magnolia-licious store..and it looks like she’s been very popular, because she’s not in stock right now, but I’m sure that if you ask the always generous Diana, she can certainly order her for you.
OK!!  Who wants to win a surprise from Diana?  LOL!  Well, who doesn’t, right? All you have to do is join the  Magnolia-licious Challenge …the winner is randomly chosen and wins a fantastic surprise from Diana!!  We always look forward to seeing your beautiful work too!

Magnolia-licious Color Inspiration

P1050573
Hello there everyone!!!
Special Surprise1
The inspiration photo says muted colors to me and yes, it does speak to me Winking smile… so that was the direction I went. I admit to be very challenged this time, as these are not my go to colors, but I have to say, once I got going ….I loved them!  What helped was choosing my papers first. After that, it was actually pretty darn easy, so the moral of the story is, if it’s a bit more of a challenge than you’re used to, just go for it. You might just surprise yourself too.

One of my very favorite images from the Magnolia 2012 The Christmas Story Collection is Joyful Tilda.  As I’ve said before, I love getting the most mileage I can out of my stamps, so when I looked at this cutie from the Christmas Story Collection…I also thought it would make perfect get well card…and those heart shaped cookies..are perfect for a Valentines Day card as well!!
Ok..that’s it for me today, but be sure to visit the rest of the team’s blogs for some fabulous inspiration! Those girls are brilliant!

Oh gosh!! One more thing! Have you heard about the new Magnolia-licious Facebook program?
image
As an example, if you click on Joyful Tilda, you will see a Facebook button below the stamp. Click on it…to start the process! Easy peasy, right?
For more details please visit the Magnolia-licious Store
Thanks so much for dropping by today
