Snow Hearts for You!

Hi All! Today marks the start of a new Stamp and Create with Magnolia Challenge and this time our theme is HeartsTilda has been out playing in the snow that Mother Nature saw fit to deliver us the other day and she has come up with a Snowheart to share with you.
I have played around with my Distress Ink pens and a water brush, a medium that I have not used often. After a couple of attempts I have even managed to create something that  I felt comfortable putting on a card.
Once my image dried, I added some Stickles, Perfect Pearls and Liquid Applique to add some dimensional detail. The papers are some oldies but some goodies that I found in my stash. I now have a card that is ready to pop in the mail.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge, Lacey is kindly offering one lucky participant a chance to win 1 free Magnolia Stamp of their choice. Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you.

New Beginnings

Hello, I hope that you have all had a wonderful holiday season and that you have managed to stay healthy given all of the nasty bugs that have been going around.

 Today marks the start of another great challenge over on the Stamp and Create withMagnolia blog. Our theme this week is
Banners, Bunting, Flags

This card features Delivery from Heaven, a sweet image that was perfect for a new beginning and it will also be perfect the next time that there is a new baby girl to welcome.  The papers are a combination of Basic Grey and My Mind Eye that worked perfectly together and they have been accented with a generous dose of Stickles and some Wild Orchid flowers.

 I hope that you will join us with your own creations.
