Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

Good Morning!

I am so excited to announce the creation of the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Even more exciting is I have been chosen to be on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Design Team. Woo Hoo! I am honored to be among this awesome group of creative ladies and want to thank Diana, owner of Magnolia-licious, for this opportunity. You can find a list of the other Design Team members on the side of my blog. Visit their blogs to see their challenge creation.

The Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog will issue a challenge every second and fourth Tuesday. Each month a Design Team member will host the two challenges. The first challenge will be a color challenge with the DT member choosing the challenge colors. The second challenge of the month will be an inspiration challenge with the DT host choosing the inspiration. The inspiration might be a photograph, a poem, or a page from a magazine. No matter what, color choices or inspirational items, this will surely be a fun challenge blog!

Candy, the DT leader, is the host DT member for the Challenge Blog's launch. For the color challenge she choose pink and yellow. Here is my challenge card:

For my card I choose from Magnolia-licious the rocking chair, Jolly Tilda, and sentiment. You can find these stamps at Magnolia-licious.
