A Christmas Magnolia Card.

Hello everyone. Today is Friday!!! Time for another challange at Just Magnolia and hAngler. I have a Christmas card using one of the NEW Magnolia Christmas stamps. I'm not sure what the name of the swwet Tilda is. It almost looks like  Valentines stamp but that's what I love about these, their versatility. I'm sure they'll be availavle at Magnolia-licious really soon!!! Over at Just Magnolia we have a sketch by Jane. I just love this sketch and all the layers. It was very fun to use, I hope you will join us this week.

Have a lovely day!

Piece of Quiet!!

Hello everyone! I have a new card for Cute Card Thursday. The challenge is Animal Crakers. So get out those cute critter stamps! I won this stamp about a month ago and been anxiously waiting to ink it up. I just LOVE the saying. I have these Tim Holts clock faces that Angie sent me a while back. I think it goes perfect with the colors and the stamp. For me a masculine colored card I really love this card. I really stepped out of my comfort zone with this one!

I hope you will join us over a Cute Card Thursday! I will see you tomorrow for Just Magnolia and hAngler.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there! I have a card for Just Magnolia and hAngler and for Fussy and Fancy. Just Magnolia's challenge is Fall/Back to School, I chose Fall, which is my favorite time of year! Fussy and Fancy's challenge is to try a new technique, I use the reflection technique. This isn't new to me but it's something I haven't done in a very long time. I think the last time I done it was when I was a Stampin' Up! Demo.. ages ago! :)

I was going to put a Tilda on here, one of the large ones right about where the butterfly is and I chose not to take away from the tree. It's a little different than what I'm used to making, but I think it came out ok. I hope you will play along with us at Just Magnolia and hAngler and Fussy and Fancy!

Today is the first day of the Fall/Halloween Little Darlings Sneak Peeks.
Be sure to check it out on the Love to Stamp Blog!

Hello my lovely blog readers. Today is Thursday and time for another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. This is a sketch me little ole me! I used on of Kenny K images, it's a little revealing, just to warn you. I made this card for my significant other for our 14th year Anniversary. He likes the 'Hot Kenny K Girls' over Tilda.. how dare him! LOL! It gave me the opportunity to use this digi, which is my absolute favorite Kenny K image.

Well I hope you like my card and join us over at Cute Card Thursday this week.

New TOMIC Challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at TOMIC. We have a lovely sketch by Liza. I will be honest, I don't love this card. I redid the image twice. The first time was with Distress Inks and I hated it! I almost trashed the entire card. I tried just redoing the image in my Copics and it really made a difference. So here's my card, I hope it inspires you enough to join us over at TOMIC!

I just wanted to share that I have updated my Etsy Store. If there is a card you'd like to buy that isn't in there, please email me. Thanks so much.

I also wanted to reminder everyone about my Copic Class at Color me Creative. I'm working on my next class and hope to have it up soon. It's taking me a little longer than I planned, but it will be up!
Have a lovely day!

Magnolia-licious Mini Magnolia Binder Hop!

It's time for the Magnolia-licious September Blog Hop! This month our theme is is to decorate one of the new Magnolia Mini Stamp Binders. You have Mini Magnolia's you need this and if you don't have Magnolia Mini's you need to get some and the binder! :) The binder is a 3 ring binder each page has slots for the stamps and there's 2 slots per stamp, one for the stamp and one for the card to stamp the image and put the name of the stamp on the card too. How clever is that!

If you have come from Janiel's Blog you're on the right track if not you will want to start at the beginning on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. Your next stop is Suzanne.

Have a wonderful week!

You're a Great Friend!

Hello friends! Well I made it to Friday! At one point this week I didn't think I was going to be able to. I've been extremely tired and having the worst time getting sleep! I'm finally getting on track and back of the swing of things. Hopefully I wont have that problem anytime soon!

I have a little gift set to show you today. I made this for my friend Sherri, it was her Birthday earlier this week. She loved it, at least she said she did. )

This week over at Just Magnolia and hAngler we have a sketch by Jacque. I hope you will join us!
Have a great weekend!

A very Shabby Chic Card with NO STAMPING!

Hi there! I have a very different card to share today. My Great-Grandmother, who is 92, asked if I would make her sister a Birthday card. My aunt just turned 90! Amazing right! So I wanted to make an elegant card, concentrating on a sentiment/poem. I found this poem online and I think it's beautiful and perfect for someone who is in their 90's. My Great-Grandmother loved it, she cried when she read it and was so very happy to give it to her sister.

There's NO STAMPING on this card. I don't think I've ever made a card where I didn't stamp. It came out pretty good though. I hope you all like it. I've made it for Cute Card Thursday, our theme is Anything Goes. I hope you will join us!

Have a wonderful day!
