Hello There! Magnolia-Licious DT

Good morning! Hope you all had a great weekend. I had a super busy weekend. Story of my life lately.  My husband and I have been car hunting. I have a list a mile long and I wanted to test drive my favorites to get that list narrowed down. I came home more confused then when I left. Still do not know what I want!!!  I loved the BMW328i but it's not the most practical family car. The back seat was a bit small for the whole clan. So I am going to look some more next week. I was really hoping that I would get into a car and just know...that was the one! When I got my SUV, thats how it was. I knew I wanted it and when I drove it I LOVED it. But I am tired of driving my gas guzzling large vehicle. But when you are use to all that room it's so hard to downsize, ya know!!

Anyways.....Memorial Day is coming up this weekend here in the states. Any plans? BBQ's?  My and my family will be enjoying the weekend together with lots of sun, swimming and fun! I can't wait. It will probably be a quiet week for me in blogland. Good chance I will only have about 1 post in the next week or so!!

Today I have for you a sweet little "Hello" card using Hello Butterfly Tilda from the Butterfly Collection. We have an inspiration challenge at Magnolia-licious this week. The photo was chosen by the talented Norma this week. When I saw the inspiration I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I LOVE the colors in it so I ended up going with that.





You can purchase Hello Butterfly and the Summer Background at Magnolia-licious!!!  I colored them both with Copic markers. The papers are from K&Company and MME. The sentiment is CTMH.  I added some stickles to the flowers and the butterflys.

Be sure to stop by the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see the inspirations cards from the other DT. They are amazing! Also, please play along with us. We do a random draw for a $25.00 gift certicate to the Magnolia-licious store!

Challenges:

Spoonful of Sugar - Things w/Wings
Tip Top Tuesday - Use 2 or more stamps
Just Magnolia - Sketch
Make it Monday  - Anything Goes

Hugs,

Tracy,
I love your card. So many layers of papers!
Beautifully coloured!! Perfect stitching.
Great background you choose to go with Butterfly Tilda :o)
The colours are wonderful together. It is so feminine.
I do wonder where you girls are getting the long clusters? you add to your flowers - yours are white. I noticed Norma used purple ones. They really add to the arrangements.
Hugs, Candy

Hi, Tracy! Love this card! Looks like you're busy lately too! Finally recovered from your vacation, I hope. I'm just dropping by to tell you that I just posted my first card using one of the Tildas you sent me! You'll probably giggle when you read the post. It's funny that the image I used has a butterfly too... and it's purple! GMTA! I swear I had not seen your card when I made mine. I wanted to let you know because I included a link to your blog in my post. Thanks again... so very much! I have had a blast coloring all the cute Tildas and now I need to buy some ink refills!

Hugs,
Anniebee
