Magnolia-licious Design Team Sketch challenge for April


WOOHOO!! Happy Friday and happy April 1st!!! So are you an April Fool prankster?  I like to play small little pranks, especially to the grandkids. LOL!  With today being the first of the month, it's time for a new challenge from the Magnolia-licious Design team, and this month is was my turn to host. I decided to challenge you to make a project using Edwin and Tilda together. Cause after all, Edwin and Tilda are truly Together Forevah!!! For my card today, I used #151 Heartbreaker Edwin (isn't he just the cutest little thing??) along with #341 Mini Tilda Blowing Hearts for the thought bubble, and #450 log.


They're all colored with Copic markers. Edwin and the log are fussy cut and popped up from the Nestabilities circle. The grass is just hand drawn in. A Martha Stewart border punch was used for the heart strip, the twine is from PTI, and I got those cool Tim Holtz pins that the charm is attached to at my LSS. The other stick pin I've had for forever and I can't remember who they're made by. The packaging is long gone. That little tag was cut using a Cuttlebug set of dies and I just ran it through my printer after cutting it. It's attached to the twin with just a simple safety pin. The pearls in the corners were colored with a Copic marker.


Please be sure to visit Magnolia-licious Highlites to see my DT sisters creations using both Tilda and Edwin. And don't forget about the huge Magnolia-licious Easter/Spring Extravaganza challenge! The prizes are unbelievable! There are three different categories and each category is offering a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place price. This is VOTING contest, and you're only allowed one entry per category, so be sure to do your best work! First place prize in each category is a $150.00 shopping spree at Magnolia-licious! WOW! If that's not an eye opener, then I don't know what would be! All the details are on the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. But don't put it off, cause you only have until April 19th (exact times are in the contest details) and then the contest closes for voting. So what are you waiting for! Get those Easter/Spring projects going! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Wow!!!! What a fantastic idea, Sharon. It looks absolutely fabulous.
Thanks for leaving a comment the other day. I drop by often but have been so busy with other projects. No time to leave comments or craft, just many unfinished cards started and thousands of ideas.
How do you like the weather we had yesterday and today? Tomorrow colder again but the warmth is suppose to return mid-week.
Take care ... Marie
