Tilda Strews Petals at Just Magnolia



Happy Saturday to each one of you!!! I hope you had a marvelous week and are well into a fun-filled and exciting weekend!! I know I certainly am!! I have met with the radiologist and was quite impressed with him...BUT I go Monday for a CT scan to mark the precise area...and then the radiation regimen will begin in a couple of weeks and will last from 7-9 weeks and that means going EVERYDAY except Saturday and Sunday...Just how exciting is that???? Gosh I will be glowing with the very best!!!

I am so thrilled to post my Just Magnolia DT Sample Card for this week because it really put the reins on me...lol...This week there is a recipe we had to follow (when I tell you what it is, you will know how difficult this card was for me...haha) We had to use 3 flowers, 2 designer papers, 1 ribbon...yes, that is all we could use...no more, no less!!!! Gosh!! I hope you will join us this week and let us see how you will use this recipe! There is a magnificent prize this week from Creative Treasures and after you see it, I'm sure you will want to have a chance at it!!!!

For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Basic Grey Origins paper pack and PTI dotted paper pack. All panels were machine stitched. Little Flower Girl With Petals from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, a bit of Yellow Liquid Pearls and a touch of Diamond Stickles. She is now available in Diana's shop so hurry on over and check this little darling out! I used 3 flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a toffee organza ribbon with bow using a Bow-Easy, a few toffee pins, half pearls to soften the corners, and a MS border punch.



For the inside I used papers from the same BG collection and more dotted PTI paper, adding more organza ribbon and a couple of heart buttons! I hope you like my recipe card and will pay a visit to the Just Magnolia challenge blog to check out the very creative and lovely DT sample cards--they are magnificent this week!!!

Thank you so much for coming by to see Tilda and me today and I hope you will return again often! Your visits have truly been the inspiration which continues to motivate me to create!! Enjoy your weekend and hopefully it will be filled with many smiles and much happiness... Maggie Hugs for all!!!

Another little cutie, and such gorgous papers. I adore the inside of the card as well, like getting a 2 for 1! Good luck with the glowing lol, after what you've been through this will be a dawdle.

You always present such delightful eye candy and this little flower pedal dropper is no exception!! I hope you can put what's ahead in the back of your mind and simply get to enjoy the next few weeks until your new regime begins. You can see my way of coping here... "de nile is more than a river in Egypt". Stay busy creating :-)
Also glad to hear that you impressed your radiologist (ran him through the cuddle bug did you?) Oh did I miss read that??
Have a wonderful day!
