Cute and Simple Sundays!

So we have a new segment at Magnolia-licious...Rene's Cute and Simple Sundays.  Lol!  If you've been to my blog you know my style is CAS.  I love looking at Fussy and Fancy cards but they are so very difficult for me to do!  So Shawn is letting me show off my "simple skills!' Hahahaha! 
This Sunday I'm using Sweet Tilda with Bandaid.  Again, I was not impressed with this collection until I actually started playing with it.  I love it!!! 
Thank you for popping by!
Have a blessed Sunday!

Fab Friday!

It's Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks and, since Thanksgiving is officially over, I am busting out the Christmas cards!!!! 
I absolutely adore this sweet little Wryn...

Happy Halloween!

Oooh you know how I love me some Halloween!!!  This little Bugaboo image is just adorable!  It was perfect for our new challenge over at Creative Inspirations.  This month we'd like to see your Autumn/Halloween creations!  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you find time to create something for us at Creative Inspirations!

More Foamiran!

I've been having so much fun playing with this Foamiran!  For this card I layered two different colors for a little extra pop.  I have watched several tutorials and they all use an iron to heat their Foamiran.  As someone who never ever ever irons, I was afraid using it would result in my house burning down.  Considering how many paper products I own, it's a fire that might burn for a few years.  So for this card I simply pressed the Foamiran into my light bulb.  Lol!

Thank you so much for popping by.  Don't forget about our challenge: Anything Goes with the option of Halloween!!!
