The Challenge we have for you this time is a very easy one: an "Anything goes with an option of Summer". It is such a fitting challenge for this time of the year. I loved the theme. Moreover some good news is that now we are having monthly challenges, to give you more opportunity to work on your projects, with the chance of not only winning a $20 gift certificate to the STORE, but also to be a guest designer for Magnolia-licious.
I got inspired by the Magnolia Doo Hickey vol.10 set of dies, and did the ice-cream car as the focus point of my card. I really had a good time cutting it from different but coordinating pieces of papers, giving it also some dimension by adding a pop up upper part, and also popping up the wheel a bit, but cutting several times the wheel part and gluing them on top of each other.
The bottles with the labels and caps are also fun to play with :) I felt like a little kid again!! I could not leave the card without a Magnolia stamped image, so while not having yet a Tilda with ice-cream, I used sitting Tilda, from this year's Spring Collection. Her ice-cream is still to be prepared, so she is patiently waiting for it to arrive :)
As usual, I cannot let any card be without my sweet embellishments, so I added lace, and a lace flower with a self-adhesive pearl on top, die cuts from the same Doo Hickey volume (which you can find at the Store) and from other sets, a round doily, and a sentiment from Paulette.
The main paper I used on the card is Maja Design, something which was sent to me years ago by a friend of mine.
I just love that sentiment, and I stamped it directly onto a piece of designer paper which I had in my folder. All the pieces are distressed with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
I am now off to hospital. This is the fourth week that mum is in Hospital, and from there she might be transferred to a Home for the elderly as now as the situation has turned out to be, she is not able to live anymore by herself. She admitted that she is feeling unsafe when she thinks of home, as she cannot even stand alone on her feet for more than a couple of seconds. We are all very close to her, visiting everyday and spending time with her, but due to the need of medical assistance and oxygen all the time, it is better that she is under constant care. Thank God she is remaining calm and focused. Thank you for all the support and messages I received regarding this difficult situation. God bless you all good people!
