Circus Tilda on a Candy Cane.

Wow, 2 days in a row posting whoop whoop! I had this card requested from one of my etsy buyers. I just love this paper with the sparkly snowmen and I love the pink cards. :) This one was a request though so I can't help it. It's a little hard to see but the snowflakes are punched out of vellum and I dug out my flowersoft and put it along the flowers. I think it looks great along the roses.

Well I'm off I hope you have a great weekend. I'll be back Monday with a new Wild Orchid Craft Challenge.

Holiday Greetings, Secret TIlda!

Hello my crafty blogging friends! I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, mine was yummy! Here's my card for Just Magnolia, this week is a sketch by Donalda. I had a lot of fun with this sketch I hope you will join us over at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog .

I tried something a little different with my coloring. Instead of going for the dark and in depth look I went for soft and subtle. What do you think? I like it but I think I like the dark detailed better. I love doing the pink Holiday cards. If the print on the paper was different it could pass for a Valentines card LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Christmas Angel Tilda!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a card for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. I haven't used my Distress Inks in a while. I though I had colored to dark, but when I was finished I really like the outcome. I embossed the snowflakes in irridecent ice and then added a little blue the the background using my aquapainter. I added white sparkly fluff on the ground and bench, if you look closely.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Frosty Winter Greetings!

I have another card I was able to squeeze in, and isn't a DT card. Yay me! I am really obsessed with masking lately and making little scenes. It's really a lot of fun, and you can get so many different looks with the same stamps. I just love these two little Tildas, together they look like sisters out in the snow. I have used my Copic markers once again. I'm really practicing with my markers a lot, since in January I will be going to CHA and doing some demos, with Copics, at the Scor-pal booth with the lovely Diana. I'm so super excited! I cannot wait to finally meet Diana and some fellow DT members in person. Wahoo!!!

I hope you all have a great rest of the week, I'll be back Friday with Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy.

Dont forget about my candy, it ends THIS Friday!!

I Love Magnolia Snowmen!!

WOW! I cannot remember the last time I made a card NOT for a design team, Yay me!! LOL!! I gathered up a bunch of challenges, and made a card, plus got a bunch of design team stuff done! I feel caught up, I'm not going to stop, hopefully I can get some more design team stuff done tomorrow, get posts scheduled that way I can create more non-design team stuff! There's so much I want to do for Christmas for friends and I don't want to fall behind with my design teams. :) I love them all so much!

I can honestly say I have NEVER made an all white card. It was a challenge but not as bad as I though. I LOVE the outcome. Those giant snowflakes are drop dead gorgeous on a card. Thank you so much Angie for ALL the goodies. You are the sweetest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will try to post again soon. Have a great weekend all!

Devil with the Blue Dress!!!

****I just updated my Etsy Store!****
**** Free card (not posted on etsy) with every card bought****

Hello everyong out in blogging land. I hope you are having a great start to your weekend already. I made this card for my friend, Sherri's daughter. Her birthday was the 24th. She had asked me to make her a card so I sent her to the Magnolia-licious Store and choose her image, I had confidence in my expanding Magnolia collection...but she chose an image I did not have lol! So the lovely Suzanne Dean sent me a few stamped images on the new Copic xpress paper (I highly reccomend it). Thanks so much Suzanne.

This card is for Fussy and Fancy, it's one of my sketches, it's also for Just Magnolia monthly anything goes challenge.

The photos aren't great now that I'm looking at them. I wish I had more light on them. The card is much better in person. I didn't have any patterned black paper so I used soild. You cannot tell but the blue paper has a print on it. I really LOVE the way Tilda came out. That paper makes me want to buy more copics! LOL
