Good afternoon. I have TWO cards to share today! Both are Magnolia stamps. The top one is Tilda with her bike. The papers I used are from the DCWV Spring paper pack. I added some small crystals to make her flowers sparkle. The second one is Tilda with her kitty from the Pet Collection. ( Diana is currently out of stock but you can find others here)I cut her out and perched her on a border made with a Martha Stewart punch. It is one of my favorite punches right now. The flower is also from Martha Stewart. The verse is a rub on. I enjoy making cards with Tilda but sometimes after looking at others Magnolia creations I feel mine are simple compared to theirs. I just don't have the patience to spend hours on 1 card. At least not right now. But I do hope the person who receives it will like it even if it isn't "fancy". Have a great day...the sun is shining here and we are supposed to warm up considerably by the weekend. Yippee!

Monday, Monday...Another dreary day here in Ohio. A great day to stamp & scrap though!! Today's card has Tilda holding a ladybug. I'm not thrilled with how it came out but I'm not sure what it needs. Maybe I should have embossed the blue paper with Swiss Dots. Anyhoo, you can purchase Tilda here. I didn't see this particular one there so she is probably out of stock at the moment. She is from the Lazy Days collection 2009. Just email Diana and I'm sure she'll do her best to get it for you. I added a touch of glitter to Tilda's dress for a little sparkle. I also added a tiny rhinestone on her dress. The ladybugs are stickers from Jollees. Thanks for stopping today. See you soon!

Hi! First off, I apologize for the wonky picture. There is NO sun today, NADA! So my house is very dark. This was the best out of all of them so it will have to do. I haven't inked up my Tildas for a little while so I was having withdrawal. LOL! This is Ladybug Tilda. You can find her at Magnolia stamps.( The link is on the right hand side of my blog. Just click on the box and it will take you there.) I colored her with unusual colors for a ladybug but I think it looks fun! I love pink & brown together. The flowers are actually printed from my computer. I cut them out, sponged the edges a little and added some glitter. I got them at Fred She Says digital designs. I also added a brad in the middle of each one. You can download & print them out any size you want and there are lots of colors to choose from. Thanks for stopping today. I am meeting a friend and we are going to get massages this afternoon. I am hoping this will loosen up the tightness in my body. Not sure if it is stress or from my MS. But I know it is much needed and will be wonderful!!!

Good Afternoon! It's so nice to look out the window & see "green" but I heard we might have a little wet snow on Friday.(YUK!) All of my bulbs are sprouting but no flowers yet. This card is for a lady that just had surgery. I thought this daffodil looked "cheery". It is a Northwoods stamp I bought at a used stamp sale last year. I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored it then cut out a second flower "head" to pop it up for dimension. Added a few rhinestones to match and I found a scrap of ribbon that would look good with it. I hope she likes it. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

Hello. It's Sunday again! OK...the calgon didn't work. Maybe some chocolate & a neck massage?Why does life have to be so difficult at times? Oh well, I'm glad I have my crafting & creating to keep my mind occupied! LOL! Pulling up my boot straps and trudging along...
Today's card features a cute little baby Fairy from Mo's Digital Pencil. She just looks so sweet & innocent! Plus she looks like "spring" and I have spring fever. Can't wait for the trees & flowers to bloom! Especially Hyacinths..those are my favorite. I just love how fragrant they are! I colored this image with my Copics and added a little Hero Arts glitter to her wings. I colored the dress over with my clear spica glitter marker for a little subtle sparkle on her dress. Added a few flowers and some decorative trim and voila, she's ready to send out! Thanks for stopping. Have a blessed day!

Hello! Happy Sunday! This is a quick post as I have to get out the door to church. The time changed forward 1 hour last night so I feel like I am WAY behind! My card today was made with a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl's. It was given away as a freebie on Paper Craft Planet. I love teddy bears so I am really liking this image. I am sending it to a friend who is going through a rough time. I put "Hang in there" on the inside. I actually colored a second bear & cut it out so I could pop it up for a little dimension. The "grass" is a Martha Stewart punch. I used my clear glaze pen to accent a little on the clothes and on the bear. Thanks for stopping today. I hope you have a great day!

Mr. Sunshine, where are you??? I need you!! It is so BLAH out...it's making ME feel BLAH. Also going to get our taxes done this afternoon. Not a fun day! But I did get a few fun cards made last night! I LOVE this couple from CC Designs available at http://www.allthatscraps.com/. I think it makes a perfect anniversary card. I can think of lots of possibilities to do with them. It would be great for a new parents card or an engagement card too. I cut them out & popped them up on the bottom card. I also like the style of the words to go with them. Thanks for stopping today. Hope you get time to play! And I am hoping the sun at least makes an appearance tomorrow. I'll be waiting...

Monday, Monday.... Hope today is a great start to a new week! Today's card is a digital image called "Cherry Emma" She is from C.C. Designs at www.allthatscraps.com. She reminds me of my Magnolia girls..no noses & no mouths. I think they are all just too cute! I found the cherry ribbon at Michael's. The papers are from my scrap bin. I added some clear glaze on top of the cherries on her shirt to make them more dimensional. She is cut out and popped up onto the ribbon. I added a felt flower for her to wear. Thanks for stopping. Have a "cherry" nice day!!

Hi! I'm back. A little sore but doing fantastic! The sun is shining. All in all looks to be a great day! Today's card is an image from Sweet & Sasssy Stamps. It is a digital stamp. My husband's work partner's daughter just had a baby girl and I thought this image was just so sweet. I added some Hero Arts glitter for a little sparkle. The papers were all from my scrap bin. I swear those scraps just keep on multiplying. LOL!. Well, quick post, I have to get ready for church. I hope to come home and stamp. I missed that the last few days. I am sore from just laying around on the couch. Yesterday I went out for some shopping with a good friend. It was good to get out. But I was amazed at how tiring it was. Took a nap & was good as new! Have a wonderful day. Enjoy the sunshine if you can & I will see you soon!

Hello! I'm ready for spring! I just got this cute Bee Tilda in the mail the other day. I think she is just adorable! I also got the ladybug Tilda too but haven't inked her up yet. I colored her with my Copic markers & cut her out. I used some Hero Arts glitter to make her sparkle. 2 little gems were colored with my Copics to match. Ribbon and a flower button finish her off. Thanks for stopping today. I am having minor surgery tomorrow so I won't be crafting for a day or two. I am falling apart...LOL!...3 surgeries in one year! But none of them serious thank goodness. So Happy crafting and I will see you all real soon!
P.S...These stamps are available from Diana. Her store link is on the right hand side of my blog
