Magnolia-licious Challenge "Celebrate"

Hi friends! How's it going? 

Today I'm sharing a card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge and the theme is "Celebrate"!  That's a pretty easy theme and it gave me a chance to use one of my older stamps that I still LOVE.  I hope you will want to join the challenge.  You can color your Magnolia, Wee, & Wild Rose Studio images/projects BUT your project MUST celebrate something (new baby, wedding, birthday, anniversary, graduation, going away, etc.)!

I decided to make a birthday reminder box.  I have a birthday reminder book but with the huge/fat cards that I make, they simply won't fit in that tiny pocket.  I saw the idea here at Pink Buckaroo Designs.   She gave some wonderful instructions, but I had to change the dimensions for my 6x6 cards. 

I made 6 tabs and used half of the months on the front and then you flip it over the the other half are on those same tabs.  I really don't think I will be working more than six months ahead! Good golly, I am lucky to work 2 days ahead haha!!

I've colored her with my fav Inktense pencils and the paper are the Vintage Spring collection from Maja Designs.  I printed out the little cards and sentiment off my computer.

 I used a circle for the tabs but wish I had used something a little different.  Gotta use what you have though.

I hope you like this little project.  It was a lot of fun to make!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!!

Time to run!

Hugs, Dena

  21. Hi Dena, now that is a very neat idea. I mighthave to case it. Love your colouring of this sweet Tilda. Hugs

  22. Such a cute, great idea. Love it. I just have a notebook so can't store my cards when done. But I'm mostly like you, I make my cards about 5 to 7 days before they're due to send. Keep up the ideas. Edna

  23. great idea! It seems birthdays come up too fast and a month or year view would be great. I think I would also write in other cards I needed to make, such as wedding, sympathy, graduation, etc. I pretty much have this info on my phone, but seeing it like this would be perfect. great job!

  24. OooH Dena! This is such an AMAZING idea!!!!!!! I love love LOVE it! MMm kay .. you do all kinds of INCREDIBLE projects .. you're so INSPIRING! Your colouring is beyond GORGEOUS as always, and this is such a BEAUTIFUL color to do this with! Gosh .. soooo LOVE this!

    Hope you're having a WONDERFUL day Sweetheart!
