Tilda’s in a jam

I am a hopeless Magnolia lover!!  Can’t get enough of them, can’t colour enough of them……………..  it’s an addiction. 
Enter the “loverly”  Jam Tilda.  She is just so sweet.  I don’t have this Tilda, but received the image through an image swap.  I may just have to buy her also.
I was lucky enough to acquire a Marianne Creatable die cut for the doily.  Just love those dies also……..  Have a butterfly that is just waiting for a place on a card.

Ok, wasn't quite happy with the plain jane variation that I first came up with -- added the rather large flower...still not happy.......... will try something else.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges: 
                   Mojo Monday Sketch 179
                   Magnolia-licious Highlights – Spring theme
                   Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central  - product
Here is the inside of the card - ready for a stamped Sentiment.

Hope you have a wonderful day – keep stamping and keep smiling!

Let’s skip winter and move on to Summer

OK, I’m ready for summer………..let’s get this snow melted and the temperature heated up!!  While I was away, I think that sneaky little groundhog did a number on me and saw his shadow.  Brrrrr.  Two weeks ago, I had a sunburn……  should have stayed put and refused to come home!!

I’m sure there are places with worst temperatures that our balmy –4 celsius.  (But my mind is still on the Cruise Ship, sitting in the warmth of the sun, sipping iced Chai Tea Latte’s.)  OK, enough complainin’!!

Today, I’ve chosen to showcase a beautiful Sarah Kay image available at One Crazy Stamper.  Lora has so many beautiful images, it is hard to decide on just one to work on.  This week’s card is a very simple one – as I’ve been suffering with an ugly cough / cold and haven’t felt very creative amongst the kleenex piles. 

P1120094 copy

A friend (thank you Wendy!!) came to my rescue by sending me this “paper”……….and the colour was absolutely perfect for a quick card not to distract from the gorgeous image (coloured with my favorite, copics) of “Roses Garden” from Stampavie.  Head right over there to look at all the stamps Lora has on sale.  ------ Wait!!, before you go, please view my card………. It has been a couple of weeks since I’ve done this, so…………. *   ta   da  * .  YEA! it worked.

And here is a close up of Rose………………………………………….and of the card opened.  P1120098 copy

I’ve left the inside blank, so I can add one that will be appropriate when I need a card.


Ok, I’m finished.

You can head on over to One Crazy Stamper and shop til you drop, and then some, with Lora’s awesome prices.  See you next week.

Tilda with Basket Picking Flowers

Are my thoughts wandering towards daffodils, tulips, forget me nots and warmer weather??  YES! YES! YES!

Dangling Tilda

What could be better than to combine last months “LOVE” challenge with February’s “PINK” challenge at One Crazy Stamper

I chose Dangling Tilda from the Magnolia Stamps that OCS has magnificent prices for, along with some Magnolia DP.P1110807 copy  In order for me to make a true Magnolia card with all the bells and whistles, I made an Easel card – which is my favorite of all cards to make.

The heart was drawn freehand, cut out and edged with a strip cut from a MS punch, (snipping into the strip at intervals to mold it to the heart shape).

This card will be given to the special fella in my life, *wink* *wink* , and since we will be somewhere on the Mexican Riviera Valentine’s Day, I will give it to him then. 

When using my copics, I had to try out the newest copic craze – folds and pleats.  Oh my!  It is hard to visualize.
