A Boy Card!

Hi everyone!
 I have a card for Lili's Little Faries, the challenge this week is to create a card for a boy. I made this card last week in about an hour, coloring and everything!! It sure does look a little nakid though. I used some really wild, gorgeous papers by Basic Grey. It was easy not to cover them up with a ton of embellishments.

I leave tomorrow for CHA! I'm looking forward to spending some time with my good friend, Angie and all my other Magnolia-licious buddies. I'm also looking forward to meeting some of my fellow dt members and it's always great to meet new people, too! I've got my camera all charged for pictures! Hopefully I'll take more than last year.

Have a great weekend!

Family - a little word created by love!

Happy Friday!
I'm late with my post. Today is my daighter's birthday. She's 5! I cannot believe it. We spent the morning putting her new Lego Friends toy together and making her cake (Angel food cake with strawberries and whip cream! YUM-O)

Here's the card I made for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. Just Magnolia's theme is to have a windo of some sort on your card and Fussy and Fancy is to include a heart. I have no idea what is wrong with me lately but I cannot find any inspiring papers for the life of me. The last few cards I've made I have taken longer to figure out what papers then it takes me to actually make the card. I guess I need to do some shopping and some serious cleaning out papers.

I hope you will join us and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Friend!

Hello Everyone!
Today I have a card for Cute Card Thursday and for Lili's Little Faries. For Cute Card Thursday our theme is Dance and Lili's Little Faries our theme is Lavender and Lace. I used this Ballerina cutie. I had such a hard time finding paper for these 2 challenges. I have a lot of paper and it's just not inspiring me lately. I guess I better head to a Scrapbook store ASAP! Paper Emergency!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

Well I hope you will join us at these challenges. I will be back tomorrow with Fussy and Fancy and Just Magnolia!

A Valentines Hop, with CANDY of course!

Today is our Magnolia-licious Valentine's Blog Hop!
I tried stamping on fabric for my very first time on this project. I bought this tote at Michaels for a couple of dollars. It was tricky coloring on canvas because the ink spreads. I just used my Memento Ink and Copics to color. Next time, I will be able to shade a little better, now knowing how the ink spreads. Anyways I hope you like my project. I know you will enoy the hop my fellow design team girlys have really outdone themselves as always.

If you have arrived from Ruby's blog you are on the right track. If you haven't please start at the beginning on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. Next stop on the hop is Patti Jo!

Don't miss out on my Candy below!

Ink - Memento and Copics

Before you leave I have some CANDY! I have an extra Tilda Sending Love Letters! Please become a follower if you are not already and link up to Mr. Linky. Have a wonderful week and good luck! I will draw a winner Sunday January 22nd.

Be my Valentine.. or else!

It's time for a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. Our theme this week 'to make you laugh'. I really been wanting to make some Valentine cards so I thought it would be funny to add the 'Or Else' after the Be my Valentine especially since this new Valentino stamp has a bow and arrow. I wanted to make a different style card and hadn't made one of these criss cross cards in a while so I went with one of those.

I hope you will join us at Cute Card Thursday.

Have a great week and weekend. I will be back on Monday with our monthly
 Magnolia-licious Blog hop and some candy!
