Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge - All the B's

Hi - this week's Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge is a really cool one I thought. At least different! The challenge is all the B's... what does that mean? To use as many things on your card that starts with the letter "B"... now I first started to go with a girlie card with lots of bling, butterflies and such. Then when going through my stamps I had a new Magnolia stamp that I had not inked up yet. I passed over it trying to find a flowing dress girlie Tilda... then I went back to it... hmmmmmm  it starts with a "B". So I decided to do something a bit different and go with it!

Get it? "BaseBall"! We love baseball around our house. I try and never miss a Yankee game! Go Yankees! And when I saw this Tilda with the bat on he shoulder I had to have it. I colored her up with more "Blue" than the white and red. I decided she was just finishing a game and gave her some dirt on her uniform. I added some Viva Decor Pearl Pen in a circle on the ground as the "BALL"... My papers... had lots of trouble there. then I ran across a piece of paper with the dictionary terms for all the "Beauty" words... and "Beautiful" written all over it. I also noticed a little "Butterfly" on a section, so I made sure that wasn't covered up.

Found some foam letters in my stash so I inked them to let them show up a bit more and spelled out "beauty". My scrap of Graphic 45 paper is "Blue" then I added three "Blue" "Buttons", and a satin ribbon and "Bow". I think I covered a fair amount of things with the letter "B"... at least I hope I did :0)

And then on the inside I used more scraps - that match the front.

I want to find a quote for the inside. Something about I see your beauty in any fashion, or no matter what you wear.. darn it I know I have read it and I will find it and put it inside :0)

So now if you pop on over to the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge site you will see all the DT's "BEAUTIFUL" creations! Then join us Simon Says Stamps is giving a great gift certificate this week!! And I know we all love shopping there!

Ok, now off to get Friday going. This has just been a whirl wind week, totally run run run. We sold the property our business was on last week. And now we are trying to get things all completed and closed out... you would think that would be easy. But NOOOOOO  everyone wants things in writing now a days and all the information they can from me. I swear I thought about asking if they wanted to know what color my toe nail polish is... really, just close things down! But it is starting to all be final, and then we can move on to the next step of life. What is that you ask? No clue... LOL Oh we will still have our "farm" and the animals they are part of the family. But as for the rest... we are going to roll with it and see how things go. Speaking of the farm and the animals... just wait until tomorrow and you see what Hubby is building me :0) So excited about it!!!!!

See you tomorrow for Animal Crackers -  (Oh and Tuco is recovering pretty well... just need to keep him from running and playing to hard still)
