Squigglefly #51....

I'm late, I'm late... So sorry I'm running behind with my post today. I took my daughter shopping yesterday out of town and didn't make it home until 11pm. That's to late for card making for me.. My bedtime is usually around 9..

So anyways here is my card for this week's challenge over at the Squigglefly Blog. This week challenge is to make a "Joy Fold Card". I've never made one of those before, but it wasn't hard at all. You can find a Tutorial HERE. I have used a cute image my Cheryl Alger called Sassy Patsy Birthday. I even managed to use up some left over scraps from Saturdays class. Head over and check out the other DT projects they ROCK!!

Hope your all having a fabulous Memorial Day.
That you Veteran's for serving our country!!

Flying Tilda....

I bloggers.. I've been a terrible blogger here lately. Sorry for that. A month ago at work we had to let one of the two girls that work our front desk go and then the next week the other one quit. So I have been trying to be both of them and do my own job. So we hired one new girl and we decided she wasn't going to work out either. So we are right back to were we started. Needless to say after spending 11 hours a day at work and the stress of it all I come home and fall exhausted on to the couch to veg out in front of the T.V.  But I'll be back soon. I hope!!!

I never got around to doing this week challenge over at the Squigglefly Blog " Get Well". I did manage to color the image I picked out last night, so maybe tonight after work I can whip it up. But head over and check out the super projects by the other DT. They Rock!!

In the mean time I did do up this cute Magnolia Flying Tilda... I love the new Fairytale Collection. Very cute!! If you'd like to get some they can be out at 7 Kids College Fund HERE. I have also used some new Basic Grey paper called Cappella. I love Basic Grey!!

I'm off to work have a fabulous day!!!

Squigglefly #49....

Hey everyone.. Hope you had a glorious weekend!! I managed to get my challenge cards done, but that's about it.. Oh I did mount my new Kraftin Kimmie stamps that I picked up at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time. No won to this weeks challenge over at the Squigglefly Blog. This week's challenge is to make a "Criss Cross Card. Pretty fun actually. I left a space enough space in the back to slip a gift card into mine. But you could put a tag or other cute something behide there too. I have used another fabulously fun Cheryl Alger image called Dancing Debbie. All the rest of the stuff came from my diminishing scrap pile. It's still huge though...

Hope you'll find time to join the challenge this week. I sure enjoyed it..

Spellcaster Tilda....

I'm back with another fabulous new Magnolia from the Fairytale Collection. This one is Spellcaster Tilda. Isn't she wonderful? I have also used my Nellie Snellen flower punches. I love those.

I have colored her with my Copic Markers:

  • Skin: E11, E00, E000
  • Cheeks: R20
  • Hair: E35, E31, E53, E50
  • Star: Y19, Y00

Ballerina Tilda...

Isn't she lovely? I forgot how much I love Magnolia stamps. This one is called "Ballerina Tilda". Those cute little chubby cheeks just make me want to have more. But I still haven't colored all of these yet... Although I can throw more into my basket at 7 Kids College Fund for check out later... :o) The butterfly punch is by Martha Stewart and the flowers are from Prima. I love flowers.

I found this beautiful paper in my scrap pile. I don't think it was a scrap though. I think it was from some 6 x 6 paper my friend Sue gave me. Thanks Sue... So I don't know what it's called of course.  I have colored Tilda's hair with my current favorite Copic colors: E35, E31, E53 & E50. Kind of looks like my hair color actually. Only not that long, but I am trying to grow it out. Wow that takes forever. It's a lot faster to cut it off.. :o)

Hope your having a fabulous weekend and not working to hard. I'm off to teach distressing at my local scrapbook store...

Sending Mother's Day Wishes...

Happy Mother's Day to all you mother's out there or soon to be mother's. Hope your having a fabulous day. Maybe getting to go out to lunch/dinner or even better getting some new crafting goodies. Well that would be better to me anyways.

Check out this new Magnolia Image I picked up she's called Bubbling Tilda. If you'd like to get one yourself  just go HERE. 7 Kids College Fund has some amazing Tilda's to choose from. Love those cuties. I colored her wings twice and popped them up on pop dots. They look awesome. I even covered them with stickles so they would sparkle. I love that stuff.

Here's a close up of her wings..

I'm still cleaning up my area by using scraps I have in the pile. I don't think I've even made a dent yet. Oh well some day..

Happy Mother's Day again. Hope your all having a fabulous day!!

Make a Wish....

Check out this adorable new stamp I picked up at my local scrapbook store. It's a Penny Black stamp set called Make a Wish. You get 10 images in one package. I love that!! What can I say I love them all if I won the lottery I'd still have to work just to buy stamps. I wish I had more time in the day to blog hop, stamp and color, but alas it's not so. Oh well we got to do what we got to do.

Hope your all having a fabulous Saturday.. I'm off to color some new Tilda's I picked up at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time on Thursday. Thanks Michelle for staying open and waiting for me!! I love the new Magnolia Fairytale Collection.. It's super cute!!

I don't need bookmarks any more I own a Kindle, so I had to make do with the edge of a card base. I think I'll give him to my friend Sue she reads books all the time!! Head over and check out the other bookmarks they are super cute!!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day...

Well I can't remember the last time I scrap booked, but I love scrapbook paper. So Happy Scrap-booking Day!!! Thought I'd pop in with a card I whipped up for my friend Sue this morning before I have to go teach class. When I seen this cute image it so reminded me of Sue I knew I'd have to color it up for her. Isn't it adorable? It's another cutie by Cheryl Alger called Sassy Girl Golfer. I've never seen Sue golf,but according to her she does. So here's to you Sue.. Thanks for being my friend...
