Love, Love, Love Tilda Likes It Hot at the Magnolia-licious Challenge!

Hello Everyone,

Have I got news for all of my readers! There have been some WONDERFUL changes at Magnolia-licious! Diana is now going to carry a new line of stamps! The new line is from Wild Rose Studio out of the UK! The stamps are drop dead gorgeous - little girls, bunnies, kittens and cats, lots of adorable images that you will love. Also the pricing is a steal! Diana has discounted them 13%! Additionally, you will still receive your 2% Store Credit for every dollar spent! It is an exceptionally good deal, if not the best online. You can Pre-Order now. Having access to those stamps is such a plus! Yay, Diana! Thank you for bringing in this fantastic stamp line! Be sure to check them out!

Also, The Christmas 2013 Releases from Memory Box Dies have arrived and are going fast! Check them out, and get yours before they are gone!

Guess what time it is? It is time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious - Stamps, Dies and So Much More Challenge Blog. Are you ready? Our new challenge theme is...

Some Like It Hot!

For this challenge, you are to create a project that reflects the Summer heat in some way. It could be about Summer activities, ways to "chill" in the Summer heat, or even something that is as hot as the heat of Summer.The Design Team has fantastic examples that will be posted on the Challenge Blog today and next Tuesday as well. So, jump in the Magnolia-licious pool and join the fun!

Before I share my card with you, I want to announce the winner of a special something for leaving a comment on the Runaway Bride post on my blog. The winner is -

Suzan Laverty

Suzan, please e-mail me with your address, and I will get a special something out to you! Thanks to each of you who left me a little love! XOXO

Now, back to the Some Like It Hot Challenge! I think I was out in left field when my mind considered the direction my card would take for my challenge card. I thought about things that are HOT! Of course, with that in mind, I thought about my sweet husband! He's "HOT!" As a result, my mind went in the direction of ice cream and being "hot." I'll blame it on my having a "Senior Moment!" I chose to use the Thought Bubble Stamp Set (see below) rather than the Talk Bubble Doohickey because I liked the black dotted border (and it's cheaper!, LOL) Below the photos are the Magnolia-licious produces used. Here's my card:

I used the following products from Magnolia-licious Stamps, Dies, and So Much More:

Love, Love, Love Tilda #361
Doohickey #88 Cloudy Tag Die
Thought Bubbles #524

Well, that's about it! Don't forget to leave a comment at the end of my blog (and those blogs of the DT) to have your name in the draw for a special surprise from Diana!

Thanks so much for visiting!
