Magnolia-licious Blog Hop Time!!

Hey everyone! It's the 3rd Monday in the month, and you Magnolia-licious fans out there knows what that means! It's time for a Design Team Blog Hop!!! And this month, our theme is "Back to School"!! Now if you've made your way here from visiting my very talened friend Cheryl Rowley, then you're in the right spot! If not, then you'll want to start at Magnolia-licious Highlites so you don't miss a thing! Here's what I've created for today

I used a total of SIX Magnolia stamps on this card! LOL! I thought I'd never finish coloring. And considering it usually takes me at least an hour and a half for each image, that's a lot of coloring. LOL! Of course it didn't take me that long for the pencil and ruler! LOL!  The stamps I used are: #252 Editor Tilda and #320 Autumn Tilda with Pencils from the Turning Leaves Collection. I also used #508 Kitchen Bench, Tilda with crossed legs reading, the pencil, and also the ruler. I don't have numbers for those as they've been around a number of years, but if you're interested I'm sure Diana can let you know if she can order them for you!!

They're stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers. Magnolia-licious is your one stop source for anything Magnolia! Diana carries the best selection at the best prices! Not only do you get a discount from list price off the top, but you also earn a 2% credit with every purchase! Diana also carries an extensive array of gorgeous dies from places such as Memory Box, Cheery Lynn, and Marianne!! Be sure to visit Magnolia-licious today!! The papers are from Echo Park matted with Bazzill cardstock. I added some lace and some cheesecloth for some extra texture. The ribbon is from May Arts topped with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Here's a pic of the inside where I used Autumn Tilda with Pencils.

Now I have a few extra older Magnolia stamps I'd like to send to a new home. If you're interested in giving them a good home. just be sure you're a follower as I'm going to randomly pick some winners.  Now it's time to hop on to see what my fabulously talented teamie Janiel has made for your delight today! I'm sure you're gonna LOVE it! Thanks so much for hopping with us today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
