Today is the Day…

a dream comes true for me! For as long as I’ve been looking at crafty inspiration on-line, I have been completely head-over-hills-in-love with Magnolia stamps! Their totally darling, adorable style grabbed me right off the bat! From there, it wasn’t long until…I became obsessed with Magnolia-licious. I would spend hours and hours visiting the Magnolia-licious blogs and stalking the amazingly talented design team's inspiration. As my crafty obsession grew, so did my adoration of Diana Crick of Magnolia-licious.  I was even able to meet her a couple of times along with a few of the design team members, Sharon, Barb, Angie and Mindy and Suzanne. For me, it was like meeting celebrities!! However, every single one of them was as sweet and kind and humble as can be. As time went on, I began to dream about being on the Magnolia-licious team, never believing it would ever actually come true! I even wrote it down, because they say if you want to achieve something the best way to make that happen is to do just that!  Well…fast forward to today! My dream came true!!! Now, I get to play with the stamps I have loved for so long and right next to Diana’s fabulous Magnolia-licious Challenge Team!! I mean it! 
Check out these names!!
Someone pinch me!!
Thank you so much
from the bottom of my heart Diana!!!!!!
I hope I can make you half as proud as you’ve made me happy!
OK! Enough of the gushing! hehe…

I was inspired by the soft shades of pinks and browns, so for my card, that was the direction I went, but you might be inspired by other colors in the photo. So, all you have to do it use any of the Magnolia stamps to create a project inspired by the photo and join in on the challenge. Just by doing so, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a Gift Certificate to the Magnolia-licious store from the very generous Lady Diana, which…by the way, just happens THE BEST place to buy Magnolia stamps, along with Magnolia, Marianne, Cheery Lynn, Memory Box Dies and so much more! 
You will also want to stop by the rest of the Design team blogs for more inspiration....I know those girls are going to amaze you, just like they do me!!
Supplies used:
Stamp ~ Magnolia ~ Secret Tilda 
(Diana currently has her on order and she is also available as a mini)
Papers ~ My Mind’s Eye
Sentiment ~ Cat’s Life Press
Colored with Copics
Lace and cheesecloth from my stash
Thank you so much for letting me share my excitement with you! 
All of your support and comments mean so much to me and to show my gratitude...I'm giving away a cute little Tailor Tilda!!

  27. Sheri you know how much I love your work. You have an unique style that is so different from many others I have seen. And you probably don't remember but I once told you that you should be designing for Magnolia Ink. Well you reached your goal designing for Diana and now I want to see your work in Magnolia Ink too. I am so happy for you and it could not have happened to a nicer person. This card is outstanding. I love the colors you chose and how well you put everything together. I am so proud to know you too. Hugs, Fran
