Time Heals..

Hello friends!

Today there's a new challenge over at TOMIC. Our theme is an inspirational photo with these gorgeous clocks. Then you also have to have a get well sentiment. I chose 'time heals' as my sentiment. It can be used for a number of reasons.. sick, sympathy feeling down etc. I also thought it went well with the image, who knows how long Tilda has been standing there as the water continues to rise. :) lol!

Well I hope you will join us over at TOMIC this week.
Have a great day!

Princess Tote!

Happy Friday!

Today it's time for another Just Magnolia Challenge! The theme this week is Buttons and Bows. I made this tote for a class I was supposed to do but fell through... so here it is for a design team project! :) This is my second attempt with coloring on a canvas.. I colored lightly so I could try to add a little darker shading this time. It's ok.. for coloring on a canvas. It's difficult to start towards the center of the image since the ink spreads... I need some more practice.

Well have a great weekend.
This will be my last weekend in my twenties!

Have a Sunny Day!

Hello bloggin buddies!
Today there's a new challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies. We have a lovely sketch by my friend Jacque. I wanted this card to be very soft looking so I decided to use a natural lace for my 3 stripes in the sketch. I thought it was actually a bit plain while I was making this card but when I woke up the other morning I walked past my shelf and actually did a double take and though,. 'Hey, that turned out really pretty' :) I absolutley love this image from LOTV!

Have a great day everyone.
 I'll be back with Just Magnolia tomorrow!

75 Years!!!

Can you believe my Nana and Papa (Great-Grandparents) would have been married 75 years this month if my Papa hadn't dies a year and a half ago. He was 96 years old! My Nana is now 93 and missing the love of her life. I spent a week with her a few weeks ago and I heard wonderful stories of their life together. My Nana would go on about something then look down and twirl her fingers and say I can't believe he's gone, then look up at me with tears and say it would have been 75 years this month, that we were married. It's amazing how life really does go by in a blink of an eye.

I made this card for my Nana in celebration of their 75th Wedding Anniversary!
 It's for the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge, the theme this week is 'Diamonds and Pearls' which has Nana written all over it! :)

Hope you like my card and will join us for the challenge.

New Sentiment Stamps Created by ME.. and Just Magnolia Card!

Hello out there....

It's been a while since my last post! Lots of behind the scene type of stuff with stamping and with my family life. Hopefully I can get a balance going on so I'm able to keep up with what I love to do..
color and create! It's been about 3-4 weeks since I sat and colored and yesterday I did! YAY ME!

One of the things I've been up to is designing some
 Sentiment Stamps called 'Warm Fuzzies'. They are now on sale at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. There's a Birthday Set which coordinate with the Spellbinder Circle Dies and a Spring set. I really hope you all like them! You can never have enough sentiments.
I made this card for a class I was hoping to do but unfortunately it isn't going to happen. So I was able to fit this card into this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge. Our theme this week is 'Lovely Lace'. I've used this darling image #281 Princess Welcome Tilda from Magnolia-licious. Which is now also available as a Mini, too! I also used the Magnolia Heart Swirly Die.  The papers I used are from My Minds Eye and are just gorgeous!

Have a wonderful day! I hope you will join us at Just Magnolia!
