Hope you are having a great New Year, today it is time for me to share a card on the Magnolia-Licious challenge blog. We have switched around teams and this year I am on Team A which means I get to share on the first week of the challenge, yay!

Also we have lost some members, so sad to see them go, but also gained some wonderful new ones so please check out the challenge to see all the gorgeous work from the whole Magnolia-Licious team!

Our first challenge of 2015 is "Love Is In The Air" and is perfect for the upcoming Valentines Day.
I decided to go with a stamp from the last collection, Waiting For Christmas, and I think Tilda looks so sweet waiting for her loved one to warm her up with his love!



You have 2 weeks to enter this challenge and you could be our winner if you enter and follow our theme.
So choose a Magnolia, Wee, or Wild Rose Studio image and have fun creating a project or card to join the challenge!

I love using a stamp from a "wrong" collection for a card as it is nice to say "ooh look a Christmas stamp that looks great on a Valentine/Birthday/Get well etc etc" and you feel you get more bang for your buck so to speak!
Anyway I hope you liked it to and will come along and play with us at Magnolia-Licious, we'd love to see you there!
