Sunflower Maggie - Magnolia Challenge Blog

It's Tuesday only 3 more days til the weekend. Not that I am counting or anything. I thought I was going to come home and get something done but I believe I am coming down with that nasty cold that seems to be going around. I really hope not, I hope it's just breezing by me and goes away quick..KWIM.

So the hubs is still trying to convince me to go see  snow. I sent him multiple links today showing him there is no such thing as snow in the south....it's called Ice!!  Hello! Not for me. I don't want to be slipping and sliding in any ice!!! We have 2 weekends booked for spur of the moment trip to the snow....we'll see what happens lol

Now, on to this weeks Magnolia-Licous Challenge Blog.  This weeks challenge is a color challenge and the colors are ORANGE and GREEN. Orange and Green just scream fall to me...so my card is a bit fallish I must say. I kept it clean and simple to showcase the adorable Sunflower Tilda.



I colored the sunflower then stamped another one and colored it. I cut it out and popped it out on top. I added Art Elements Carrot to the center for dimension.


I love this saying. I think most of us do not do this enough!


Some of my girls over at Paper Sundaes have inspired me to decorate the insides. So on most of my latest cards I have done just that! ;-)

I stamped Sunflower Tilda on papertrey ink paper with memento ink. She is colored with Copic markers. The paper is from my stash as is the ribbon. Thats pretty much it, I kept it pretty simple!!  You can get this fantastic tilda from my favorite place to get them - Magnolia-licous.  Diana has the largest selection of Magnolias and she will be sure to get them to you ASAP!

Be sure to play along with us at the Magnolia-licous Challenge BLog. The Challenge runs for 2 week and Diana always gives the best prizes!!!
