MAGNOLIA-licious Highlites April project.. You might want to get your sunglasses on this morning!! LOL..

HAPPY APRIL FIRST everyone!!!!!!



I hope today finds you all well and enjoying life!!


Over at the Magnolia-Licious Highlites blog we have a new challenge for you. Sharon is the very talented hostess this month and she wants us to create a project with BOTH TIDLA AND EDWIN on it.



I have used 2 *NEW* stamps from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.


I LOVE THIS NEW COLLECTION!!


First off this new Edwin is my very favorite of him!! He can be bought at Magnolia-licious and is in stock right now.


#120 EDWIN with BUTTERFLY and #370 TILDA HOLDING DAFFODIL.


I did used the fabby sketch from PaperTake Weekly. And made it into an easel card.


As you can see I have made an easel card so that my framed image will pop and show the sweet little cute images better.

I have colored my images with my copic markers.

Papers used: MME, Pebbes Inc, TaDa Studios and Bazzill cardstocks.

Embellies: sheer ribbon, satin dot ribbon, fabric trim flower with brads, trims trims and more trims. I have put white dots on my brads and on the star brad I have painted white stripes.

Tools used: I use my #3 TILDA LACE DIE the can be bought from Magnolia-Licious. Sewing machine and I have used my oval SpellBinders. I have inked all of the edges with my distressed inks.


Can you see those beautiful orange flowers in the background? They are out in one of my flower beds and oh they are beautiful. That is what inspried me to use bright colors and orange for my project this month. THE SHADES OF SUMMER...

We are also gettingrecord heat here the last few days as it has been around 95 degrees!!! It is to be 100 degrees on Saturday!! I hope it cools down a bit as it is way to soon for that kind of heat!!



Please make sure you stop by the highlites blog and see what beautiful creations the other DT members have made. I hope that you will be able to join us in the fun!! Get your Edwins and Tilda out and play with us. Loadedyour projects to the Magnolia Highlites Challenge blog for your chance to win some new Maggies!! Have a great weekend!!!

Sharon Caudle said...

Ya know....I'm going to have to start being proactive before I visit your blog. I will obtain one of my hubby's old neck ties and before I click on your blog, I will tie it around my head so my chin doesn't drop to the floor, and so I don't drool all over myself! LMBO! Girl, you make the most magnificent cards ever, ever, EVER!!! You have the perfect eye for colors, always pick the perfect combination of papers, and your embellishments are always spot on! I wanna be like you when I grow up! I ADORE this card!!!
hugs! Sharn
