Happy Tuesday Everyone!!! We had a fantastic Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop yesterday! What fun!!! I sure hope you were able to join us. If not, you can still check out the DT creations at Magnolia-licious Highlites. Everyone was so creative with the Easter/Spring and acetate theme. Don't forget to join in with your own project! Use your imagination and you can do amazing things.
Soooooooo, on another note, when I arrived home Friday evening I was welcomed by a wonderful surprise! My Maggies had arrived!!! I absolutely could not wait to work with them. But I had to...it was late and I had to put my son to bed. Then I had to hit the sack because we had an early morning scheduled for Saturday. I still don't know how I made it through Saturday! I didn't get much sleep Friday night because I kept waking up thinking about coloring one of my new Maggies. Seriously, I must have woke up half a dozen times with coloring on my mind. My husband said simply "just stop thinking about it". Dah!!! Why didn't I think of that??? I explained to him that, unlike men, women do not have that empty, blank space in their brains that they can go to whenever they want! He didn't laugh. Aren't sleepless nights miserable??? Anyway, by midday Saturday, I was finally able to get to my craft room. Aaaahhhhhh...ain't life wonderful : )
My absolute favorite new Magnolia is, drum roll please.....#207 Fairytale Tilda!!! She's part of the PIRATES & FAIRYTALE COLLECTION that is scheduled for release some time in April. You can PRE-ORDER her and others from the collection right now at Magnolia-licious.
I layed out this card following the Friday Sketchers challenge this week. It's a great sketch and it lent itself to a bi-fold card, which I have been secretly wanting to do for a while now. I just kept forgetting to actually do it!!!
Now, without further adieu, here she is...........
In keeping with the Spring season that is nearly upon us, I chose some very 'springy' dp's by My Mind's Eye - Ooh La La. The cs is SU. I just happened to have some craft ribbon that matched perfectly. I cut the image and background with Nestabilities. The leaves were cut using a MS punch. I applied diamond Stickles all over the wings. You should see them in person! Very sparkly!!! The pearls are by K&Company and I colored them with a Copic marker. The fantabulous flowers are from Magnolia and you can get them at Magnolia-licous. Diana has a really great selection of Magnolia embellishments in the store. You should check it out!
Tilda was colored with a combination of Copic markers and distress inks.
I hope you all have a great day today. Take a look at the Magnolia-licous DT Blog Hop creations at Magnolia-Highlites if you haven't already. We really hope you join in on the fun and show us your own creations.
Try to find some time to color. It's good for the soul.
