Magnolia Image

Well, 2 cards in one day! Who could ask for anything more, LOL!! Now it's time to sit back, relax and enjoy the remainder of the evening (which is not much left as I need to go to bed). I saw this type of card on DYI Scrapbooking TV show, and thought Oh my, what a cute idea! and easy! Except, I had some serious problems with the paper bubbling up on me. O'well, you win some, you loose some, haha! I love the dangly embelishments, though I have to say. I colored sweet Tilda with chalk this time. Took a break from the ole copic's. Anyway, off to bed. Have a super evening! Or day, which ever it may be.

Anya Inc Challenge

Ok, so this is my first entry for the Anya Ink Challenge. I wanted to do something different. This card was definitely out of my comfort zone! But I wanted to spice it up so this is what came of it. I used Copic Markers for my coloring. The black hair is a bit tricky for me for some reason, but practice makes perfect, right? I guess that means I must make more cards to get all the practice in! Love that idea! :0) Anyway, hope you all enjoy! HAVE A FANTASTIC DAY! Thank you for any comments. they are appreciated!

Birthday Card

We are going to a surprise birthday party for our neighbor tonight. So I thought I would whip up a card for her birthday. I actually had a lot of fun making this card. It surpisingly went fast too. Usually it takes me a while to make a card, so I was quite happy, haha! I used different types of paper, and inked the edges of the cream colored cardstock. I love this stamp. I think she is just too darn cute. So far I have 4 of these stamps, and am looking forward to getting some more.

challenge I never submitted

I tried to make this card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge, and changed my mind. The camera I am using just didn't seem to do the paper justice. I really LOVE this paper. I actually bought the paper stack (Mirabelle from My Paper Studio) so I could do some pages of my mom and my grandmother. The paper in this stack is absolutely beautiful! But when I was trying to figure out the papers for the challenge, I came accross this pack I bought and thought, oh that would look so pretty. Well, I wasn't really all that happy with the outcome of it unfortunately. I had my friend / co-worker over, and we had a good time chatting why we made cards. I was working on this card. She is a extremely talented card maker. I am trying to convince her to publish some of her cards as they are just SOOOO amazing!! anyway, here is the outcome of the card.
