Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


This challenge for the Magnolia-licious Design Team was for Birthday Celebrations with altered project in honor of the wonderful Diana Crick of Magnolia-licious since it is her birthday this month!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY Diana!!!!

If you have come from the amazing Becca Feeken's blog, you are coming from the right direction.  If you have stopped by on your own, you might want to start at the beginning at the Magnolia-licious Highlites to read all the details about the hop.

For my card and project, I did them with the lovely new Bon Voyage Tilda!  What a sweetie!!!  Watercolored with Distress Inks.  Also love the new DooHickey dies, so used the leaf and swirls dies too!  You can find these at Diana's store Magnolia-licious here.  She has a terrific selection and if she is out of a particular stamp you are looking for be sure to check with her.

Had used all the hardware from a Stampin' Up! hardware tin, but of course saved it for a future project so it came in handy for this one.  Guess that's why I hang on to soooo much stuff!!!  :)   The tin was already turquoise, so worked the projects around that color.

Supplies I used:
#277 Bon Voyage Tilda
#4 Leaf and Swirl DooHickey Dies
Mat Mettallic Silver Card Stock
White and Turquoise Card Stock
Distress Inks:  Tattered Rose, Broken China, Pumice Stone, Tea Die
Punches:  Martha Stewart Deco Fan and Stampin' Up Ovals
     Punch Bunch Deco Flower
Spellbinder Oval die
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Polka Dots
Ribbons, Silver Cord, Crystals
Stampin' Up! Hardware Tin
Scor-Buddy

Then to decide what to put in the jazzed up tin!  Decided to fill it with some of my flowers along with some little Prima roses and some flower centers plus an assortment of punched leaves.  All ready for a card maker to plop onto a card!


Thanks so much for stopping by and always enjoy any comments you are so kind enough to leave!

Now you get to party on over for a real treat at Suzanne Dean's blog here!  I definitely know she will have something fantastic for you to enjoy!!!

Enjoy every day!!!
Patti Jo

I love your colors, and the card and tin. I was drop-jawed and covetous when I saw the tin with all of those beautiful flowers! then I heard a little voice in my heart whisper
"thou shall not covet gifts made for another, for thou has plenty of things of thine own." LOL
