Another First ~ It’s a Magnolia

I love seeing all the wonderful creations using Magnolia stamps and have tried my hardest to win one of countless challenges. Let’s just say Random.org must be a dog lover for Cat Spicer never seems to be chosen. Simon Says Stamp to the rescue! http://www.simonsaysstamp.com Heidi has a nice assortment of Magnolia stamps in stock. Of course I had to pick out Tilda holding a cat. I was able to use another Midnight Madness sketch for my creation. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Inspiration Scrappy Frogs Challenge #9 ~ Run around the Magnolia Bush: Use Magnolia stamp Cute Card Thursday #70 ~ Eye, Eye!: Use Eyelets I had a heck of a time with my eyelets. I’m not sure if it was them, my Crop-a-dile or, more likely, the user! 365 Cards Day 146 ~ Mirror Me (create symmetry on your card) 365 Cards Day 131 ~ Ad inspired I know you’re thinking how in the heck this inspired my card. The child standing at the sink made met think of a Tilda and the red dots inspired the color and ribbon. My Creation

Inside I left this pretty plain so I could write a short note to my friend.
