It's All About Sports Blog Hop

In the land of 10,000 lakes, we certainly think fishing is one of our favorite sports!  I've been wanting to use this Tilda Gone Fishing and the pretty little Stone Pathway images for a while so thought it fit right into our theme and the season.

If you are following the "It's All About Sports Blog Hop" with the design team from Magnolia-licious Highlites and came from the very talented Suzanne Dean's blog - Scrap Bitz, you are heading in the right direction! If you stopped by on your own, you'll find the hop order and all the exciting details how you can join in on the fun at Magnolia-licious Highlites.

Of course my wonderful images plus the border and butterfly die are from Magnolia-licious!  Be sure to check out all the new items Diana has in stock besides the wonderful Magnolia things!

The mini zig zag and scallop border dies are so nice to add just a little design to the edge.  The butterfly dies that come with the magnolia tree branch are the perfect size to add to many projects.

Just had to make Tilda's galoshes a bright yellow!!!  Did you have those as a kid???  They were great for sloshing around in mud puddles!!!  The images are colored with ProMarkers and I also cut out the butterflies in white and colored those with the ProMarkers too.  Hard to see, but I've added some purple flocking to the flowers and added an organdy bow with a Hero Arts birthday wishes stamp in punched out circles.

Just a note that Diana is offering a fantastic deal on the Mini Stamp Storage Binder right now too!  I sure love how nice it is to have all my minis stored and organized in these binders.  Here's a picture of a page in the binder.  It is a great set up to use!!!!
Now be sure to continue on to awesome Angie's blog - Scrap Girl to see what wonderful project she has created!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will join in on the challenge!!!
Enjoy every day!

What a sweet scene. I just love this Tilda. Pairing it up with the stone path was a perfect pairing. I love the softness of the colors. The card is just lovely. The little scallop edge is precious!

LOVE your card! Not only because it is SO LOVELY but also because my husband is an avid fisherman. He goes up to a cabin in northern Minnesota every Labor Day week so fishing is the sport of choice in our household.

Your color so beautifully!
