Papercraft Star Challenge #43

     Yes, yes, I know.  I can hear you all scratching your heads and muttering "where did this come from"?  All I can say is blame it on this weeks photo inspiration at Papercraft Star.  LOL Candy and bright red and yellow just reached out and slapped me so this is what evolved.  This is my first ever Magnolia.  My sweet sweet friend Silvia sent me a ton of stamped images to play with and this was one of them.  I immediately grabbed it because of the lollipop.  I mean, it couldn't go with that photo any better.  Then I won the candy cart image over at Make It Colorful with old Mexico Phil and Horhay and look what's sticking up out of it--lollipops!  What else could I do but combine the two. {grin}
     I'm happy with the card other than the Tilda.  I think I should have colored her clothing something besides pink--probably yellow--but I went with the pink and there was no going back since I only had one copy of the image.
     I think you all have probably figured out by now that I'm a pretty eclectic card maker.  You never know what you'll find here.  LOL
     So take a look at that inspiration photo in my sidebar and lets see what you can come up with.  Get your project linked up by 9:00 p.m. EST on Sunday.  Don't forget, our Grand Prize this month is being provided by The Scrapbooking Cottage.

  5. Hi Tracey! Another brilliant card! I just love being able to merge fantastic backgrounds to make scenes like this. Well done!
    You were asking about the age of our house. It was built in the 1920s, 1924 or 26. It's a typical Southern house, although the inside was renovated in the 1970's to include closets and a bathroom. Actually the whole house was moved from town to the country (where we now live) in the 70s.I'm really glad cos the area it came from has really gone down hill in recent years and the old houses neglected. Hate to see that.

  6. I see that same cart showed up in PCS's winner from last week ! Your coloring is so beautiful, and you are improving even, how is that possible !!!! You always amaze and surprise me - and I should know by now !!
