Tilda w/Daffodil Basket Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone,

Before I begin, let me start off by announcing the winner from the last Magnolia-licious Challenge Post. That winner is

#24 - Laura

Laura, please contact me with your mailing address so I can get your special something in the mail to you. Congrats!

Are you feeling it - the feeling that Spring is just around the corner? It's supposed to be in the 80s this week. Oh, how I dread the temps of summer! 80 is good, but anything over "a hundred and stupid" is way too much! LOL

It's March Madness at


Diana Crick, owner of Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps, is having an amazing sale! Have you wished you could justify purchasing the Magnolia Ink magazines? Well, Diana is doing some Spring cleaning and, as Diana calls it, "March Madness at Minimum Moolah!" Each past issue of Magnolia Ink is on sale for $6.99! YIKES! Grab 'em while they're hot! The sale will run until March 31.

Also, new to the store are the new Doo-hickey Cutting Dies. I know I loaded up! Oh, there are so many that were too cute to turn down - especially the feather and the lace borders! Check them out!

Guess what? It's that time again - time for another wonderful challenge at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! The delightful challenge goal is to create a card with an Easter or Spring theme! Oh, I see, eggs, bunnies, flowers, butterflies, baskets, etc! Please know that your card must use at least one Magnolia product for your card to be eligible for a prize. Our wonderful Fearless Leader, Diana Crick, has a special something for one lucky participant! If you know Diana, she loves to give fabulous prizes!You have until March 25 to enter, so don't wait!

Here are the photos of the card I created for this challenge. I chose to use Tilda with Daffodil Basket as my image - and this stamp is currently 25% off! Such a steal! I think it is such a beautiful stamp. It really made my card look extra special.

I had fun with this beauty! The butterflies were created using a die cut on designer paper. I chose to distress the edges of the butterflies. Next, I added a pink vellum die cut butterfly above each of the previous ones. It gave the butterflies a lighter, more delicate look. I also chose to distress the card stock and designer papers used on the mats. Tilda was colored using Distress Inks. I added a lavender color on the inside around Tilda. There is also an addition of Flower Soft at Tilda's feet. A tag is hidden under the image mat. There is also a pink vellum circular die cut behind the image mat. A square doily, touch of lace, pretty ribbons and flowers, and an adorable charm finish the front of the card. Here are more photos:

Thank you so much for dropping by. Please leave a comment if you wish! Remember, I will be drawing a name at random from those who leave comments. That lucky gal will win a little special something from me!
