Magnolia-licious Challenge "Bingo"

Hello and welcome to my blog today! I want to share the last card I made before our house fire.

  We are moving to a semi-permanent apartment home while they rebuild the insides of our home.  At least we can cook and have our dogs with us. Our hotel has been so nice, the people are awesome but it is time to have a somewhat normal lifestyle. 

 I am cataloguing everything piece by piece in our home to replace our things. Pretty much everything is a loss, the smoke damage is taking its toll on things.  As I went through papers and trinkets, I was amazed at how much soot is lingering in between pages or in tiny creases. It is inside containers that you thought were tight. This is a learning experience for us.

On to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Bingo!

I used Loves me, Loves me not Tilda, she is currently unavailable at the store but just ask Diana and she will tell you when it will arrive back in stock.

She is colored in Copics and Frantaged in shabby white around her after inking the edges with Distressed Ink.

My dies are from Magnolia doohickeys, the resin butterfly is from Prima and Kort and Godt flowers on the bottom corner.

2 magnolia doohickey tag dies and a Prima resin frame for the sentiment that goes with Tilda, they are sold as a set.

Here is the Bingo board and I die Butterfly, Die Cuts and Buttons.

  11. Thank you so much for the update. I'm sure by now you're sick of relocating, but I'm glad to hear that you've had such good help so far. Your return to normalcy sounds like a good thing, where you're going, just sad to hear that so much was ruined from smoke, We just another who's home and items were a total loss and the cause was the dryer.
