Magnolia-licious DT challenge for August - Paper only and blog hop winner!

Hi evreyone! Are you having a good week? I sure hope you're staying nice and cool and being safe if you're in the areas of extreme temperatures right now! I know how bad you want to go our and mow the yard and trim the bushes, but maybe you really should just stay indoors and craft in the air conditioning. I know...I know... it's a big sacrifice, but try not to get too upset about it. Ok? LOL!  Oh! I almost forgot to mention that if you keep going to the bottom of this post, I have the winner to the Magnolia-licious blog hop listed below.  ...but first things first!

On the first of the month, our Magnolia-licious Design Team comes out with a new challenge, and this month our very own Queen Diana chose it! She is asking for PAPER ONLY! Oh my gosh....I can't put my silk bow or flowers on my card? What am I going to do? LOL! I will say that before I even realized it, I sewed on my card.  YIKES!! Didn't even realize it until Barb said something. LOL! Anyway, lemonade is my very favorite drink in the summer. I could drink gallons of it (made with nutrasweet of course). So I wanted to do a lemonade card having Tilda in a lemonade stand. This is what I came up with.

I haven't done this in a while, but none of the images I used are in stock right now over at Magnolia-licious. UGH! That's what I get for not checking! I used an Easter Tilda with a basket of eggs and just colored them yellow to represent lemons. What do you think? Is it believable? Nobody here at the house new they were eggs until I told them, so I think I might have pulled it off. But I'll wait to hear what you guys think.  The building with the stand is also from Magnolia-licious, but I can't find it right now. If you're interested, please contact Diana and I'm sure she'd be happy to let you know if she has any on order. The papers are from Nitwit Collection matted with cardstock from PTI. The flowers are from a rolled rose die. It's the first time I've used it and I could use with a little practice. LOL!  The leaves are a  rose leaf Doohickey die available at Magnolia-licious.  I cut the glass of lemonade with my Cricut and Gypsy and the doily was cut using a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Please be sure to hop over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to see how you can participate in the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Diana!
