Magnolia-licious Challenge and RRR Challenge.

Happy August 1st! I cannot believe how fast this year is going by. My kids still have another 5 weeks of Summer vacation! everytime they start their arguing I ask them, "Is it September yet!" They look at me like I'm crazy.. I dont think they fully understand what I mean lol!

Since it's the first of the month you all know what that means! Time for another Magnolia-licious Monthly Challenge, over at the Magnolia-licious Highlights blog! It's my turn to host the challenge and I chose to make a T-Slider Card. There's a T-Slider Card Tutorial over at SCS. It's a little intimidating to try, but I had fun to make and it's fun to challenge yourself sometimes. I think the #3039 Longing Tilda goes perfect in the center of my card. I used my stampin' up inks and distress inks to watercolor. I hope you can join the T-slider card challenge! I cannot wait to see the entries!

The first of the month also means a challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog! The challenge until August 15th is Black and White. It's a record for me in the last month, I don't think I've ever used so much black! I'm loving the cards though! So I hope you can join us over at RRR too! You can win a $10 gift certificate! There's such a great selection at the RRR Store too!

Kim said...

So great to see this month's challenge using my technique! We had to scale down the written tutorial for space. I originally wrote the tutorial back in May and posted it on my blog. My blog tutorial is much more detailed and written "so a caveman can do it". If you check out my blog tutorial, you'll find it so much easier to follow!

Hope this helps! Feel free to provide the direct link to the tutorial on my blog. I also have instructions for the A2 size and triple t-slide at my blog as well. Thanks!
