I love how the papers are strawberry with the new Tilda with a Strawberry. Then Belle, my 8 year old said "Mom, WHY are you making Christmas cards" so now everytime I look at this card  see Christmas!!!! UGH! It's cute though. Just looks very Christmasy. Oh well!

Have a great day, I'll be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia post.

Magnolia Mini World Album!

Hello my friends! I have a project to show you that took me forever to make! About 4 days. All the stamps you see here are in Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection. The album spells mini, but with my little oval tags should read Magnolia Mini World. I was going to keep this a surprise but I cannot keep my big ole mouth shut. I've made this for a very dear friend, Diana Crick,  the owner of Magnolia-licious and wholesale distributor of the Magnolia Minis. If you will be going to CHA this little album will be on display there!
I hope you like it Diana!!

I've incorporated Just Magnolia into this project for this weeks challenge. Michelle chose the theme this week and it's Paper Piecing. I've paper pieced the Mini Scarecrow Tilda on the cover and also the Rocking Tilda on the last page. I never do this technique it's really fun and different. I hope you will join us over at Just Magnolia and hAngler this week!

I've also made this for Fussy and Fancy. Our theme is to CASE a DT member. So check out the lovely creations by the design team and let one of them inspire you to create! I hope you will join us over at Fussy and Fancy, too!

Thank you so much for those who have sign up for my Magnolia Copic Class at Color Me Creative. I've had such a great response and I've been chatting with some wonderful ladies! If you are interested in learning how to color with Copics, adding depth in your coloring and creating a scene I really think you would enjoy my class. You don't have to buy the stamps I've used, you can use what you have on hand.
