Oh...I can't believe I ate the whole thing!

Burrrrppppp!! Awww...c'mon, I'm just kidding!! She's not chubby...Tilda's got a baby in her belly!! Yep...I bet you've wondered where those Mini Tildas come from...well, now you know! Pregnant Tilda!! hehehehe!!

Ahem...ok, I'll get down to business...it's time for our monthly Inspiration Challenge at your very fave Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Tracy is our hostess this month and she's chosen this yummilicious photo to inspire us...

So...I thought...pink, brown, baby, bows, lace curtain...well, the list goes on and on...so many fun elements to pull from this photo, don'tcha think? Well...it's been a while since Pregnant Tilda's come out to play...she's been busy...if y'know what I mean!! LOL! Anyway...I decided to make another "twisted easel" card...I'm tellin' ya...these are such fun to make!

I want to thank a couple of sweet friends for helping me with this card (without their even knowing it!)...Thanks to my sweet friend, Sandy Dehon, from the mountains of Western NC. Sandy is always making the cutest scene cards...so I thought I'd give it a try. She challenges me to try new things...but I'm not nearly as clever as Sandy, so don't look for a cute story from me...you'll be disappointed. For those, you have to visit Sandy's Blog. And a special thanks to our very own DT sistah, Paola, who sent me this fun DP!!

So...I used THREE Magnolia images...and you can find all three at Diana Crick's Magnolia-licious online store...Pregnant Tilda, Little birds, & Old window. Here are a couple of side views...

And, of course, I like to add an "artsy" view...and here it is...Whoa...Tilda's belly looks HUGE from this angle...she may be having quadruplet Minis!!

And here's the rest of my card "recipe:
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Pearls, binkie charm, sky DP, & brown & pink polka dot ribbon: my stash
Bows: Seam binding from the Ribbon Girl online store
Flowers & cotton lace for curtain: Wild Orchid's Crafts
Dies: Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities & Doohickey lace die (Magnolia)
Sentiment: LOTV
And here are the Copics I used to color this little darlin'...

Gee...I hope you're having a cuppa while you read this because I'm really droning on and on, aren't I?! OK...time to wrap it up...head on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and spend some time drooling over the gorgeous goodies made by my Design Teamies...you are in for a real treat!! Then...get crackin' kiddos...and enter your own masterpiece into this month's Inspiration Challenge. Remember...one lucky entry will be chosen at random to win a $25.00 voucher for a little shopping spree at Magnolia-licious. So...whatcha waitin' for? Go...get busy!! Sending all y'all (that's Southern Speak!) warm hugs and huge thank you's for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments that make the sun shine on the cloudiest of days! Until next time, sweet friends....
