I have coloured her with my Shinhan Twin brush markers. used a vintage tag die from Magnolia doohickey dies. Also flowers from wild Orchid crafts. The little teapot is from Joy crafts and is from their Vintage collection.

Tilda in the Mountains

Hi Bloggers!

Yes! it has been a while since I posted. My hubby Doug has been in New Zealand for a well earned holiday staying with his girls and I have had a friend stay from New Zealand to keep me company.
That is why I have not got any crafting done.
This card is a simple one for posting. She is from the new Magnolia Collection called 'A Christmas Story'.
I have coloured her with Shinhan twin brush markers. The Poinsettia's are from Spellbinders.

I am entering this in 'Tilda's Town challenge' anything goes.

No dinner for me tonight. Lots of lovely gifts....don't you just love birthdays. I am so grateful to the Lord for my good health and pray that I have many more birthdays. Isn't life grand?
Happy Birthday to me......yeeeeeeeeh.

Tilda with her Kookaburra

Today I have Tilda with her Kookaburra. Isn't she the cutest? I tried about ten times to colour her and just couldn't get it right so decided to use my Prismacolour pencils and odourless spirits.
I saw her coloured on Mel Fletchers blog. and asked her if she minded if I copied her colouring. She was so nice and said of course I could. She did such a fabulous job. My design is different so it isn't a complete copy cat. I embossed the background and used a Spellbinder frame.

Lillyrose the Dragon

Today I have made a card called a Peek-a-Boo card. I got the pattern from Norma's blog. She is so good at doing tutorials and this one I really loved making.
The paper I used is from The Paper Shelter and is one of their digi packs called 'Vintage flower for you'.
I also used the Spellbinders ovals and scalloped ovals.
The little mini dragon is from the Princes and Princesses Magnolia stamp collection. She is called Lillyrose. I think she is really cute. I made this card for my sister's birthday. she loves dragons so this was ideal for her card.
I coloured Lillyrose with my ShinHan twin brush markers.
Here are some photo's.

Totally Tilda Challenge blog DT call

hi Blogger friends!
Today I have made a card for the Totally Tilda Challenge Blog DT call. Something new for me.
You can't get on a DT if you don't try right? As I am a mad fan of Magnolia stamps I thought this would be the ideal DT to go for. They also don't mind where you live in the world and want eight people. So why not give it a go girls. You never know, you could be picked.
They are wanting a card using this photo for colour inspiration.

I decided to use two darling little angels. The first one is from the new Christmas collection called Little Christmas 2012. The second little angel is from Sweet Christmas Dreams collection 2011.

Saturated Canary Birthday girl

Hi blogger friends,
Today I have a card to show with a Saturated Canary Digi stamp. I love these stamps that are now coming out in rubber. I don't know the name of her. I looked on the site and couldn't find her so if anyone knows her name I would appreciate it. (Her name is Ava)

I made this card for my sister-in-laws birthday tomorrows. She is colored with ShinHan Twin brush markers. Love those markers. I made the flowers (nothing special). I have a Magnolia butterfly die on it and used a Spellbinder frame. hope you like it as I had fun coloring her.
