New Magnolia-licious Challenge Featuring Tilda with Daffodil Basket

Good morning everyone,

Happy April! Can you believe it's April already? We're already running our air conditioner! It's around 80° already, which isn't that bad, but everything is in bloom, and the allergens are really heavy! So, by keeping the house closed up and running the air conditioner, it helps keep those pollens at bay. Even our poor little Precious, the cat, is having Feline Asthma. She's so good when I give her the pill. She doesn't fight the daily routine at all. Bless her heart!

Guess what is ready to go at Magnolia-licious? If you guessed the new

Once Upon a Time Collection

then you guessed right! The prices are the BEST and, in addition, you'll get a store credit based on your total spent at the time of purchase. This goes into your own personal account and builds each time you make a purchase. Down the line, it feels like Christmas when you can get that special something using the accumulated store credit! Diana's inventory is filled, so don't wait! If you wait too long, they'll be gone.

There is a new challenge today at the Magnolia-licous/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog ! Our challenge for the next two week period is to create a card using

Buttons, Bows, and/or Beads!

How fun is that? It's time for a girly girl card! Woo Hoo! Here is the card I created to provide a little inspiration. I hope you like it. I did change the base of the card from white to the pale pink after I had taken the photos. I liked it better with the pink base. I have used some wonderful NEW Magnolia products, too. The Magnolia products used in my card follow the photo. Here is the front of my card:

I am so in love with this stamp! It is so perfect for so many card purposes! This time, I chose to use pale yellow and pale pink together. Remember, I did change the white base of the card to the pale pink. I have created eight holes for lacing the ribbon. At each end, I added a pretty bow. You can find the following products at the Magnolia-licious Store. Use the links to go right to the product information.

You come up with some amazing ideas! I love the way you tied up the ribbon like on a shoe but using bows on the top and bottom. And there's a combo I haven't tried in YEARS! Pink and yellow but it's just stunning! Very nice!! Hugs!
