Just Magnolia

My, my the week went by so fast.  Tom has been out of town on business and comes homes today! Yippee!

Today it's time for another Just Magnolia challenge and this week the theme is Hot and/or Spicy or a combination of both.  As for me, I did both. 

I bought these paper especially for the "hot and spicy" part.  Boy, did I have a time working with this orange.  I'm not a huge orange fan, but did like the paper.  

This Tilda is from the 2008 Summer and Sea Collection and she is called "Tilda in the Sea".  You can purchase her HERE at the Simon Says Superstore.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Magnolia
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  Cosmo Cricket - Something Blue
Tools: Cricut, Sewing Machine, MS Hydrangea Punch
Embellies:  Flat backed pearls, Stardust Stickles, Prima Hydrangeas, Crochet Lace

The frame was made using my Storybook cartridge on my Cricut.  I popped the orange part up on pillows.  The edges were distressed with Walnut and her dressed was colored in a mixture of Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade.  My sentiment was computer generated.

We have a few things planned for the weekend and then we have Memorial Day on Monday so we are going kayaking with friends that day.  I can't wait!

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you all so much for popping by!!!  Be sure to go have a look at all the DT's work.  It's funny how different everyone's take was on this theme.  It was fun!!!

Hugs, Dena

My kids reckon I know a song for everything - and they wish I didn't 'cause I don't sing well - LOL. As I saw this I thought - "oops (she) did it again...(she) played with my heart" - YUP - this one sure made my heart melt! Not quite what Britney was singing about but it's MY version - LOL
