Anything Goes at Magnolia-licous

Hello, Friends. I can’t believe we are approaching the end of January already. It’s the fourth Tuesday of the month and you know what that means...the Magnolia-licious DT is back with a new challenge for you. This one is very simple and one of my personal favorites…


My card features Tilda with Fantasy Flower from the new Lost and Found collection. She is such a cutie. My designer papers are from Pion Design distressed with my Tim Holtz distress tool.

I kept it simple with Magnolia Lace Coaster die cuts, a huge bouquet of flowers, ribbon and lace. My frame with the Wild Rose Studio Vintage Label sentiment is a clay molded embellishment. It's from Martha Stewart; they are so fun and easy to use. You can ink or stain them and the clay is air dry which makes them very light weight. The clay comes in several colors including white and you can blend them together for that personal touch.

Here’s a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.

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 the “W”ednesday post.

There's also a new showcase of cards and projects posted on Monday a/k/a Dr. Mondays. Why the MD? It's for Mini Magnolias and Dies. So if you haven't been over in a while go check out the lovely creations. Our good friend, Barb Hardeman is back with us creating lots of fun projects and Patti Jo features cards with some of the most amazing new dies that are in the store.

Come and join us for the challenge and you will have a chance to win a Surprise from the Magnolia-licious store. There’s lots of inspiration on the blog by the DT, they do such a lovely job.
