Another Halloween card with my sketch over at Fussy and Fancy!

 Hello Again, Hope your Friday is going well. I'm so happy with this card, I just love it to pieces! I have to send a HUGE hug and thank you over to my friend Angie, who sent me this darling hAngler N stAngler stamp set. I used every stamp but one from the set. The Standing Boy Bat stamp. I was going to put it right next to the window but I really liked the way it was so I though, I will just HAVE to make another Halloween card soon! I used my Copics again, I also paper pieced the window with some of the Bon Voyage Magnolia paper collection.

This is my sketch which is the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy. I hope you will join us. It's always so much fun to see what you all do with my sketches.

Anyways, have a fantastic weekend, hope you like my cards today.

Birthday Ballerina!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!! My good friend, Sherri's Birthday was on Tuesday and I made this card for her. She loves pink so I wanted to make her a pink card with lots of sparkles and just full on girly! I hope you like it Sherri!

Over at Just Magnolia we have a fun challenge. Lace it up. You can use lace on your card or lace up ribbon. I decided to do both and the Ballerina Tilda went perfectly with what I had in mind.

I'm so sorry for not participating in the RRR Blog hop. I was a little overwhelmed last week and weekend there were just not enough hours in a day! I already have a card for Monday's Wild Orchid Craft Challenge and another card for the Magnolia-licious Blog hop! So I hope you come back on Monday to see my projects.

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Christmas Card

Well it's Friday once again, today I have a Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy card for you. At Just Magnolia we have this lovely sketch for you by Dawny. Over at Fussy and Fancy our theme is Christmas colors but it doesn't HAVE to be a Christmas card. I thought I would get an early start at them though :)

This is one of my favorite Christmas Tilda's and the best part is she makes a wonderful Birthday card too. I wanted to use actual tissue paper but honestly I was too lazy to dig it out of the hall closet. I found this tullee and it works just as good. I made a slit in the top lin of the box and tucked the tullee inside and used my scor-tape to keep it in place. I love the way it came out. Hope you like it too.

I will see you Monday with the RRR Blog hop!

   This is my first real Halloween card.. EVER! Thank you so much, Angie, for sending me this Witch Tilda, She's so cute and will be used again.. really soon. I'm already planning my next Halloween card. I just love these papers and stickers from PinkPaislee. I won a huge Halloween kit last November and I'm finally using all the goodies! I used crystal stickles on the borders of my papers and I just love the way it looks, doesn't it look like they are glowing against the black? I will be making a lot of Halloween cards in the next 2 months!

Cracked Fish Bowl Easel Card.

Friday is here and it's the last weekend of Summer for my kiddos. They will be back in school on Tuesday, but not before our busy, jam packed weekend! Saturday we have an all day Family BBQ I will get to see my Uncles and Aunts and my dad :) and brother and sister! I'm super excited! I dont see them all that often and when I do it's usually my party so I'm busy doing everything. Not this time :) Then On Sunday we are waking up early and driving out to Santa Barbara for my uncle, on my moms side, Wedding. So I will get to spend the rest of the weekend with my mom! We will be sleeping in her hotel and driving home Monday morning. Then Tuesday is back to school and a normal schedule!!!!

Here's my card for Just Magnolia, our theme for this week is Anything Goes I used used the Cracked Glass Technique. I had to use my favorite.. Little Mermaid Tilda. I just love her. I was looking through my Stamps and saw her in a fish bowl, I thought using the cracked glass on the entire bowl would look cool. I wanted to resemble a fish bowl sitting on a table, so I left the bottom of the easel card square and made it brown. I'm happy with the outcome.

Have a wonderful weekend!
