Magnolia Down Under Challenges # 52

Wow - is it Sunday already? Don't the weekends go so fast? What do you have planned today?

So this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges the theme is "Something Sweet" - so you can interpret that any way that you want to - Sweet hearts, babies, fruit, cakes (yum!), or like me, ICE CREAM! So I went with a bit of a chocolate and strawberry ice cream theme.

When I found out what the challenge was for this week, I was quite excited - I have many images I could use for this! But well, it wasn't to be so easy for me was it, I guess I was spoilt for choice. The card below is actually my third attempt at making something inspirational for you. What happened to the first two? Well, they are still alive, not in the rubbish! They are in my little "too hard corner" and I will come back to them later when I figure out what went wrong with them and they can be fixed.

My card is a little hodge podge... I have used stamps from two companies, SU and Magnolia, and from the four Magnolia images I have used, they span two collections , the papers are from three companies, and lace and flowers that were given to me by two gorgeous ladies for my birthday! (thanks girls!). It is a bit hard to photograph, but I have sprayed the entire card with glimmer mist (something else new for my birthday!), just for that little something extra.



Here is a little close up of the gorgeous Tilda



And a side view so you can see her dimension



So you have until Saturday midday Australian EST time to enter (there is a little clock on the sidebar of the challenge blog) so why not go and get started! Oh - after you have checked out what the rest of the creative DT have put together for you!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
