Spring has Sprung!

Spring just doesn't seem to be the word that comes to mind when we look outside and the snow is blowing and drifting!  Yup another snowstorm!  Spring will be so appreciated when it does finally get here.

The Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge this month is a spring themed card with mini Magnolia's.  If you have hopped here from the talented artist Maureen, you are hopping in the right direction.  If you came on your own, you will want to stop by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog and start from the beginning.  There too you will also find all the details to enter the challenge and have a chance to win a great Maggie prize!!!

I love this little Tilda as Shepard and thought she would go well with the Magnolia tree.  You'll find Mini #3031 Tilda with Shepard HERE.  Please check with Diana at Magnolia-licious for the Mini #454 Magnolia Tree.


These are colored with Distress Inks with white gel and glaze pens added for accents.  For the layers I've used the Spellbinders Lacey Square, Stampin' Up's Framed Tulips embossing folder, and Martha Stewarts Garden Trellis Border punch.  The tiny flowers are a Punch Bunch 5 flower corner punch.

I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to stop by and of course always appreciate your comments!!!

Now to continue on the hop, you will definitely want to go to the awesome Angie's blog HERE.  I'm sure she will have some wonderful spring eye candy for you!

Enjoy every day!!!
Patti Jo
