Mini Monday by the "Not the Mamas and Papas!"

Here's the You Tube link to the song Monday, Monday by the Mamas and Papas. I created my own version below. I dare you to sing or hum along while singing the modified lyrics...LOL

Ba-da ba-da-da-da
Ba-da ba-da-da-da

Mini Monday, today's the day,
Mini Monday, I just had some time to play
Oh Mini Monday, Mini Monday I just want to say
At Magnolia-licious it's time for another Mini Monday

Every other day, every other day
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But when Mini Monday comes, but when Mini Monday comes
The Design Team will inspire you every time!

Mini Monday, today's the day,
Mini Monday, I just had some time to play
Oh Mini Monday, Mini Monday I just want to say
At Magnolia-licious it's time for another Mini Monday

Did that make you smile? Maybe not, LOL! Yes, it's Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! It's a reminder to pull out your adorable mini Magnolias and give them a little work out!

Today, I've created for you a dinner invitation featuring an Edwin as a chef mini as well as some of the new Doo-hickey Dies. I hope I might spark a little inspiration for you! Here is the first photo:

I wanted to add some interest by using a Grand Nestabilities Scalloped Circle Die, which I folded in half,as the base of my card. Then, using the Grand Nestabilities Circle Dies, I added two semi-circles. A doily, some flowers, a sentiment, the Doohickey Silverware Dies cut from silver foil cardstock, and a Mini Chef Edwin finishes off the front.

Here is a photo of the interior:

On the inside, I chose to use the smaller version of the silverware Doohickey Dies also cut from silver foil cardstock. I used my computer to print up the details. A couple of matching flowers, a die cut, and another cute bow finishes off the inside.

Here are the items available at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Store:

Mini Chef Edwin - #141

Large Silverware Doohickey Die - #78

Mini Silverware Doohickey Die - #77

I hope you will also visit the blogs of the DT gals who also create inspirations for you.
