Hello, Friends. I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. I shared a fun Mini Magnolia gift box yesterday and I hope you had time to stop and leave a comment for a chance to win a weekly prize from Diana at the Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps store.
We are beginning a new challenge today for the next two weeks we want to see your…
The DT has some awesome inspiration for you and there is weather of all kinds in our projects. I decided that since we had 8 inches of snow just less than two weeks ago I wanted to create a card that was warm and summery. Of course, we went from winter to summer in a mad rush over the last couple weeks and we have 80 degrees temps in the forecast for this week. So I am dreaming of beaches, sun and sand.
My card features “Tilda Off Shore” paired with “Rescue Tower” and “Have a Sunny Day” sentiment all from the 2012 Summer Memories collection. I made a shaker card with Making Memories gold bitty beads and a background photo I took when my DH and I went to Maui. This is the private beach of The Ritz Carlton in Kapalua.
My easel card has designer papers from Bo Bunny’s Key Lime collection which has a bit of a Retro style to them. The cardstock is Bazzill and Paper Co. For the base layer of the easel card I stamped “Mini Ahoy Tilda” on the inside with blank space for a personal message. All of the shells are from Petaloo and the brad buttons are embellishments from the Bo Bunny Key Lime collection. The dies cuts are Magnolia’s Swirl die, Spellbinders Floral frame and the small rolled roses were cut with my Marianne Designs die.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
MDUC – Move it Baby (shaker card)
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Simply Magnolia – Shaker Card
CMC Challenge – Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door – Anything Goes
Don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during Wee Wednesday.
For all the details, visit Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge blog.
Check out the new “Deal of the Day” in the Magnolia-licious store HOME page. Diana has a special that she runs every 24 hours at a huge discount. You never know, it just might be that stamp you’ve been wanting.
I hope I’ve inspired you and I would love to see your weather projects. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Now this is what I call a BEAUTIFUL summer themed shaker card! You've got so many great details put onto this card, with all the different sea shells and the flip flop metal charm. My favorite detail is the photo with all the pearls used as sand, and the Tilda image completes the scene!
