Magnolia-Licious™ Challenge - Anything Goes

It's everyone's favorite theme at the Magnolia-Licious™ Challenge, it's "Anything Goes!"
It is Team B's turn to share their creatons and I decided to go with an image from the latest collection Pink Lemonade and she is just like me, always in the garden growing stuff!
I must admit though, I wish I looked half as adoarble when I was gardening, I'm usually sweaty, dirty and grumpy, not clean, smiley and cute!
Have you checked out all the changes at the Magnolia-Licious™ Store recently? It had a complete overhaul, new artwork, easier navigation, if you haven't dropped by then I highly recommend a visit!

The sentiment should bring a smile to many of my friends my age and older, remember the sitcom "The Good Life" as it was in Britain, renamed Good Neighbors on PBS for my US friends, Tilda reminds me of the Felicity Kendal character Barbara ;)
I thought the Shabby Chic feel was perfect for this image and when I found the mini tools in my stash I knew I was on to a winner. I added the Shabby Green Frantage Embossing Enamel to the edge of the oval mat to give a little more texture, I love how it has glitter for some sparkle and the enamel particles for an aged feel, just the finishing touch I needed.
Anyway I hope you liked her as much as I do and go ahead and grab your favorite Tilda or Edwin, create a card and share in our "Anything Goes" theme at the Magnolia-Licious™ Challenge!

Hi "Blanche", oh what a cutie this is! Love the embellies,the little tools are cute as can be! Look what you've done with Tilda!!! Very expressive indeed! Sorry, I don't remember that sitcom, but the sentiment is delightful. Just a share...though I lost my entire cucumber plant, which was lush and productive one week and dead the next, my pepper plants are looking very bountiful and my tomatoes are coming along beautifully.
Big hugs
