Wee Wednesday!

It’s Wednesday!! Oh boy…caught me totally off guard!!  Since when did Wednesday come after Tuesday!?  WOW!! LOL 
Have you had a chance to see the adorable Wee Stamps over in the Magnolia-licious Wee
Stamps Store? Each one is cuter than the next! I had THE hardest time trying to decide which little guy I wanted to play with…but in the end, Fluffy Hanging in There stole my heart!! Just look at the sweet little guy hanging in there!!

Did you happen to notice my cloudy background? My amazingly talented friend Alyce Keegan of Kit and Clowder has a fabulous tutorial on these...along with quite a few others as well. She is seriously...a coloring Goddess!!

Magnolia-licious–All About Boys Challenge

Hi there!! Today kicks off a new challenge over at Magnolia-licious and this time…it is all about boys!  I think most of us struggle with boy cards…I know I CERTAINLY do. However, I gotta say….I really enjoyed making this one!  If you struggle like me…be sure to check out the rest of the team’s projects. They are going to show us all how it’s done..and since Diana has tons of stamps that are perfect for the challenge….I think this should be pretty easy.  Plus, did you also know that you can now use any of the Wee stamps sold in the Magnolia-licious Store for the challenge too? It just gets easier and easier, now doesn’t it?
My card today, uses the very stylish Edwin with a Tie. Isn’t he a cutie…hiding that flower behind his back.?
Be sure to check out the Wee Stamps in the Magnolia-licious Store too.
Just like the Magnolia stamps, the team has be having fun coloring up the Wee Stamps too!

Magnolia- licious - Make a Wish!

It is time for a NEW challenge over at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps! This time we were asked to create a Magnolia birthday …somethin!  

Tilda with Heart Cake
Perfect, right? Cause… I am always hunting high and low for a birthday card! 
So…for my card, I thought Tilda with Love Cake from the 2013 Love Collection, would be super fun to work with!!  I always let my papers chose my color pallet …and these mostly primary colors seemed to work really well for a birthday card, and as it turned out, will be fitting for anyone and  just what I needed!
