Hold on to Each Other!

Hello and best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2011~ Dave and I saw the new year in quietly at home after a fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant. And, since it's January 1st the Magnolia-licious team has a NEW CHALLENGE for you! It was my turn and I thought with all the cooking many of us have been doing that we should leave the kitchen for our craft rooms/studios and cook up a new card with a recipe! I'll apologize right now for the poor photos~I just can't seem to get a crisp shot of this! Anyway the recipe is like the countdown for the New Year! 4 flowers, 3 designer papers, 2 Magnolia images and 1 ribbon! There is some wiggle room for variations but that's the basic recipe for this month! Hope you like it! Details and great design inspiration is already posted on the Mag Highlites blog for you, including PRIZE information!! Thank you, Diana!!
I tried a lot of photos and finally just had to pick some and get going! I used My Mind's Eye papers from last years Valentine collection called Beloved. There are so many great patterns!

I can't find this stamp anywhere on Magnolia-licious! I know that Sharon Caudle used the same image so I'm hoping that (genius that she is) she knows! Will post when I find out! The sentiment came in one of the Sweden kits in 2009. I KNEW Sharon would track it down~this is image #304 BROTHER AND SISTER. Diana says it will be in stock in a few weeks!

I used a lot of colors so here is the list:
Eooo, Eoo, E11, R30
BG10, Bg72 and BG78
R30, R21, R24 and R29
Hair Y21, E99, E25 and E29
E42 and above browns on shoes.
Y21 for her sleeve. E42 for his sleeve.
I love that today's date is 1~1~11!! Hope you have a Number 1 kind of day!!
Hugs, Cheryl

It's a most precious card Cheryl. Love your paper choices & the "count down" for the recipe was brilliant !!! Your coloring is amazing & I so love it that you always give the colors you use. I have such a hard time trying to find colors to use sometimes so I go back to your cards quite often when I'm stumped. Thanks for posting them ...
Hugs, Janie

Love it, love it, love it!!! Your coloring is always sheer perfection and the papers you used are gorgeous, Cheryl!! I love the frame you used and that you put them right on top of the pattern paper. They pop right off of it. You're amazing and as always, a true inspiration. Happy New Year, Cheryl!!

Not only is Edwin holding on to Tilda but I think he might be choking her - are they brother and sister I wonder! Cute care and here's to a good 2011!
