Happy Birthday Diana!

Better late than never, I almost didn't make it to the party. Diana Crick, owner of Magnolia-Licious had her Birthday this month and to celebrate they held a Birthday themed challenge on the Magnolia-Licious Highlites blog. For this card I have chosen to rest Tilda on some pretty Birthday packages. She has been coloured with my Copics in some bright party colours. I added stickles to the strings on the packages and glossy accents to the little medallions for added dimension.

The card has been matted with some new Memory Box paper that I picked up last weekend while I was on a little vacation. I used a little mat that I cut using my Spellbinders dies and embossed with my Cuttlebug.The swirl was cut using the silhouette and the butterfly and leaves are Martha Stewart punches.

Thanks for stopping by. This card is now making its way to someone special for her Birthday. If you are reading this, I hope you had a great Birthday Diana.

Christmas All Year Long

I am glad that you stopped by today. This is my first time participating in the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. If you have made your way here from Autumn's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can start at the beginning by heading over to the Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Long blog.

Today my card features Silent Night Tilda, she is available in the Magnolia-Licious shop. I have coloured her using a combination of Copics and Prisma pencils. I have added some stickles to the snowflakes and poinsettias to give her a little bit of sparkle.

The paper I have used for my card is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses line(love that it has so many colours in it for matching). I have finished off my card with some ribbon from my stash and some Prima flowers.

Thanks for looking. Now hop on over to Tanja's blog where she has another lovely Christmas creation to share with you.

Edwin and Tilda go Skating

I wanted to participate in the Edwin challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers but I don't have many Edwin stamps so I though that I would get a head start on some of my Christmas cards. Who knows, if I start now I may even have enough ready by the time December rolls around and I won't be stressed about getting them out on time.
I have opted to mask Edwin and Tilda skating with the snow circle. I had been planning this for another challenge last week but never got around to making the card.  The card is based on a sketch by Bev Rochester. I have used Prism cardstock and some older Basic Grey paper from my stash.

Edwin and Tilda have been coloured using my Copics and Prima colour pencils. I added some stickles to create a patch of ice for them to skate on and added some bling to the snoflakes around them. Afterall, it wouldn't be Christmas without a little sparkle.

Summery Tilda

Well, today is another first. I have decided to enter my first card challenge. I have masked Tilda with the watering can and coloured her with Copics. I stickled her dress in an attempt to cover up a colouring mistake and love the shimmery result. It is hard to see in the photos but I have also used some sage flower soft to add some dimension to the grass.

The card has been put together with some bazzill cardstock and some pretty papers from My Mind's Eye. I added some ribbon and the lovely flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to finish her off.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges.
Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Three
Stamp Something Photo inspiration challenge and the
Simon Says Stamp Summertime Blues challenge

I hope you are having a great summertime day. Come back and visit soon.

My first card post

Well this is my first real post. I though that I would share a picture of the card that I made for my cousin's wedding. Tilda has been coloured with distress inks and I was able to use some of the old Chatterbox paper that I have left in my stash. 

Well, I have done it now.

I am still trying to work the bugs out but today marks my first foray into the world of blogging. We'll see how it goes.
