Some Like it HOT!!!

Hello, Friends. I hope you all had a great July 4th Holiday and if you had an extended weekend like me you celebrated Independence Day with style. Of course, here in Colorado we have a burn ban due to all the wild fires in the area and did not have any fireworks. However, we celebrated by taking the horses to Dawson Butte and rode a 5 mile trail around the mountain. Beautiful views and the horses absolutely loved it.
The Magnolia-licious Design Team has a new challenge for you this fortnight and our theme is…
Some like it HOT!
So anything that tickles your fancy with something hot will work for the challenge.
I chose to make a summer card with “Edwin in Miami” from the 2012 Summer Memories collection. I love this Magnolia image and didn’t get to use him last year so I decided to make a masculine card. I colored him with Copics and sprinkled Vintage Aqua Frantage around his frame. My cardstock is Bazzill and the papers are from Maja Designs Life by the Sea collection. This collection is perfect for these stamps.
I cut several Magnolia Pennant dies cuts from the papers and inked them with Navy ink from SU and tied with jute twine. The seaside charms are from LLC and I added a nylon string from an old drawstring bag I found around the house and tied it with Flemish Bend knots on each end to hold the charms. The jute twine mesh is from Mon Ami Gabby. I finished the card with several seashells from my stash.
Here’s a close up of Edwin. He is just too cute.
There are new items in the Magnolia-licious store I must tell you about. Diana has lots of new Memory Box dies (including lots of fun Christmas shapes everything is marked NEW.) And she is now carrying a new line of stamps from Wild Rose Studio. They are so adorable; you must check them out. They are available for pre-order and are discounted 13%. You gotta love that!!!
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 Challenge blog.
I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. You’ll have a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious if you follow along with us and are the lucky winner in the draw.
Thanks for stopping by, see you next week with a new Magnolia project.
