Magnolia Down Under challenge 39

Hello and happy Saturday! I am entering my first Magnolia Challenge, so lets see how it goes. Hope everyone is having a super day. The sun is shining, but still a bit cool here in Colorado, USA. Once the wind stops blowing, it isn't all too bad. I hand stitched this card. I love the jean look and actually cut out a pocket with the paper using a pocket template and stitched the middle of the pocket as well. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!

Baking Tilda

I made my 2nd easel card today using one of my new Tilda stamps. I used the paper from the DCWV Glitter Sweet Stack. I broke out my Cricut machine using the Doodlecharm cartridge to make the cupcake. Who ever invented that machine....brilliant! I had run the icing on the cupcake through the Cuddlebug giving it the poke-dot effect, which I had glittered up the dots. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. Thanks for viewing and have a blessed day!

2nd Day Blog

ok, here is day 2. I wanted to use my new Magnolia Stamp. So I though purple would be pretty to use. Oh my, the struggle I had trying to use paper. Couldn't find papers I had that would go with the color I used on cute little Tilda. So I went out and bought more paper. Like.. I need more paper like I need a whole in the head!! So I got home, and took out the paper that I bought. Lot of times, as I am making a card, at first I struggle with the layout, but then it just clicks. This time...no click. Anyhow, it took me a while to provide this card. I sure love the Tilda though. She is soooo sweet!!

My first blog

Hello everyone! My name is Suzanne, and this is my first time in blogging. Let me start by telling a little bit about myself. I grew up in a small town of Powell, Wyo. Not too far from Yellowstone National Park. After graduating high school, I married my first husband and had 2 wonderful boys, Kyle and Nathan. We were married for about 7 years, but unfortunately had grown apart. A few yrs later, I met my soul mate. We moved from Powell 7 yrs ago to Colorado. We sure love it here.

My sister, who also lives in Colorado, is a scrapbooker. She had introduced me into scrapbooking and got me started. I was pretty slow at it for a while. then a friend of mine learned I was doing a little scrapping, and introduced me into stamping and cardmaking. I have been hooked since. I was surfing the web one day, and ran into the magnolia stamps, and was IN LOVE!! I couldn't get over how adorable they were. I just had to have some. So, I made my first purchase of the stamps. Once I received them, the first thing I did, was went down and started stamping and coloring, then before I new it, I made my first magnolia card.

I found a Magnolia stamp group on Facebook, and have been enjoying all the posts on there. That is where I learned of the Copic Markers. Ok, had to have some. So, I went out and bought some. I now have acquired quite a few in my collection. I'm still however trying to master the blending. Hopefully, one of these day's I will get it down :-)

So that pretty much it in a nutshell for now. Hope you guys enjoy!
