Magnolia-licious Summer Bash Blog Hop Party


Hiya Peeps!  Hope you're enjoying your summer so far.  We're having a party at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog and want you to join in the fun.  Both DTs have created summertime projects with a Beach, Summertime BBQ/Picnic or Fishing Theme.  Checkout the Challenge Blog for all the details on how to play, the yummy prizes up for grabs and the complete Blog Hop List.

I've used Tilda Gone Fishing, available at the Magnolia-licious online store at the end of July.  I paired her up with a scene I created using a brayer and the Stampscapes set called Light and the Sea. There are NO embellishments or DP on this card ~ yikes ~ which is a very huge first for me but I wanted to keep the focus on the background scene and Tilda.


MY LETTER IS:  L 

Now please hop to the super talented CHERYL next to see more inspiration and collect another letter!  When you are finished collecting the letters you will put them together to create a 3 word sentence.  You have until July 31st to enter so go to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE for the full contest details!  


Thanks for joining us!
Maria

Maria, oh fabulous card. I'm not into fishing, so I didn't get this Tilda Goes Fishing, but she's so adorable, I think I may have to add her to my next order. She's beautifully coloured. Love your background scene and it's muted so that the focus is still on Tilda. Nice clean look. Love the card.
