Sad To See You Go!

Hey there! I hope everyone is doing well!

Today's card is for the Magnolia-licious Challenges currently going on with the theme "Monochromatic".  This challenge will run until October 13, so pick a color, stick with it and you will have a chance to win a Special Surprise Package from Magnolia-licious.

My neighbor is moving next month and I am just sick! I love all my neighbors!  She is actually moving to my hubby's home town an hour and a half away, so at least I know where she is going and can go visit.  Rambo loves her and we call her the Dog Whisperer on our street haha! All dogs love her!!!  I am having a little going away party for her and so I made this card especially for her.

I made my card with my dear friend Elaine's style in mind! I love how her cards come together, she uses a very clean but beautiful style.  Thanks for the inspiration Elaine!  My papers are from a dear friend in the UK and they are Pion Designs.  I stayed with the slate blue color for my monochromatic but since there is so much cream it is like two colors ooops! The stamp is called Farewell Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection.  I colored Tilda with Inktense Pencils.

Leave us a comment on any of the DT's blogs and /or the Challenge blog during any of the Magnolia-licious posts for a chance to win a weekly prize.  The winner is announced every week during the "W"ednesday post.  The more you comment on all the posts the better your chances to win.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by my blog!

Hugs, Dena

Everything you touch turns to gold Missy! I love your style, whether it's a cleaner style or packed full of pretty embellies, and your colouring is always amazing (and PERFECT!)

You only got one thing wrong..it's me that takes the inspiration from you ♥

Big hugs to you
