Wedding Day Countdown

Hello Everyone!

Today I come to you as a Guest Designer for Magnolia-licious and the challenge this month is Anything Goes with the option of Wedding.

I was excited about the optional wedding theme because I have had this idea in my head for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to finally make it.

This is Mr & Mrs Magnolia from the 2018 You're Invited collection.  Are they not just the cutest?!?  I've colored them up with Distress Inks and a little bit of Copic markers here and there.

The white roses are from my stash, the pink flowers and little gray flowers are made using DooHickey's club kits volumes 5 & 9.  For the leaves and stems I use the Magnolia Rose Leaf and the Leaf & Swirl dies and the stem or branch from the Vintage Box #6.

The patterned papers I've used for this project are called Everlasting by Nitwit Collections.

Distress Inks:  Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, Hickory Smoke, Peeled paint, Pumice Stone Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood


Thank you so much for visiting my blog!  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows.

Get Well Soon!

Good Day To You Friends!

I'm so glad you're here.  I hope all is well on your end, wherever that may be.

I made this card for my dear 85 year old mother in law who is recovering from a couple of surgeries to repair a fissure that just sort of appeared out of nowhere in her stomach.  She is on the mend and doing quite nicely but the recovery isn't fast enough for her.  She wants to get back to teaching water aerobics.

This little sweetie is called Tilda With Bunny Slippers.  I've stamped her with Memento black and colored her with Distress Inks.

The flowers and stems are from my stash, I died a few white mini roses dark blue with Distress Ink and die cut the leaves with the Magnolia Rose Leaves die.

I made the little "pills" in the bottle using heart shaped cookie decorating candies and then inked them with Distress Ink.  Don't you just love those band aid's?  Those are made using the Magnolia Heart Band Aid die.


Here is the patient "chart" or clip board for the doctor's notes, made with several Magnolia dies.  The Heart and Spoon are from the Recipe Card collection, the Thyme is from the Little Italy collection and the stars are from the DooHickey's club volume 9 collection.  I made the clip using the club volume 5 balloon.


The patterned papers I've used for this project are called Dress Shoppe by Nitwit Collections.

Distress Inks used for this project:  Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy, Bundled Sage, Chipped Sapphire, Frayed Burlap, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Stormy Sky, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

For My Mom ♥

Hello My Friends!  Today I bring you a card I made for my mom for Mother's Day.  I'm really trying to be ahead of things this year.  I have colored this gorgeous Spring Rain Tilda with Distress Inks and Markers.

I am using papers from Maja's Vintage Romance collection.  I really love this color combination of the purple, ivory and sage-y green.  

All of my die cuts are Magnolia DooHickey Dies.  I found the pretty butterflies on line and cut them by hand.

Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick

Happy 88th Dad

Good Morning Friends!

Hope you have had a great week and a happy Easter.  

Last week for me was CRAZY!  My hubby flew my mom in for my birthday and it turned out to be non stop shopping and dining out.  We did a shrimp boil for Easter dinner (which was FANTASTIC btw), and then it was time for mom to fly back home on Monday.  I went straight from the airport to work.  By the time dinner time came, I had a fever and felt awful but I went to work the next day and Wednesday too.  I just had to call in sick Thursday and Friday but I am recovering nicely.  Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my friend Mick's card out in the post yet (previous post).  Sorry my darling, It will be on it's way tomorrow.  :(

I made this card for my father-in-law for his 88th birthday.  I so love the Magnolia Birthday Cake and Bunting dies from the DooHickey Club volume 5 collection.

Sorry about the wonky pictures.  I had to use my cell phone to take them since the rechargeable  batteries for my camera were dead.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great week, a wonderful day and better tomorrows.

My Friend Mick

Good Morning Lovely Peeps!

Today I come to you with a make for my long time friend Michele.  We've known each other since the 7th grade and though she is on the other side of the US, we keep in touch.  Our birthdays are only 5 days apart.  In fact, today happens to be my birthday and the 5th anniversary of my blog.  YAY!

This is my version of a clean and simple card.  I needed this one to be relatively quick since I had just finished my sister's card and have been doing birthday things throughout the week and planning Easter dinner.  I also had to make sure I sent it in plenty of time.

As per usual I've used an adorable Magnolia image.  This cutie is Tilda Blowing Hearts from 2013 and she is colored in Copic markers.

The DooHickey die Denim Tag is also by Magnolia and is from a more recent release in 2017.  The papers are by Nitwit Collections and the sentiments are by Lily Of The Valley.

I've also used Star Dust Stickles, lace, ribbon and yellow pearls from my stash.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E02, E11, R20  Hair: E30, E33, E34, E35, E37  Overalls: B91, B93, B95, B97  Shirt: E50, E51, W3  Shoes: E70, E74, E79  Hearts: V17, BG07, YG17, Y15, YR4, R29

Distress Ink - Walnut Stain

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows.

My Sister's Birthday

Good Morning Friends!

I have missed you all so much and I hope you and yours are well and happy.  I am so glad to be back to creating and sharing again.  I have several cards that I've completed and another in process that I will be posting and sharing in short order.  Here is the first:


This is Little Cute Tilda by Magnolia.  She is sitting on the Flower Wall Post while the Little Summer Birds carry a message over head.


The card base is cut from the DooHickey Dies club #18, the next layer is from club # 7, over that is the larger of the Lace Coaster set from the 2013 Once Upon A Time collection.


I have used DooHickey Dies for the castle, flowers, leaves and clouds.  The Flowers are from club #5, Clouds from club #4.  The Castle is from the 2013 Once Upon A Time collection and the Rose Leaf is from the 2011 You're So Special collection.


Ta Da!  It's an easel card.


That curve on the right side is a DooHickey Die from club #9 and the tags on the left are called So Wrapped Lovely from the 2012 Sweet Crazy Love collection.  The digital sentiments are by Lily of The Valley. 





The birds holding the happy birthday message were supposed to be one of the main focal points of this card, but they got a bit lost once I added the tags.


Magnolia DooHickeys Tilda Tag & Royal Lace dies.  Sizzix Antique Numbers die.



Copic Markers - Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20  Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29  Dress: B000, B52, BG09, BG57  Crown: YR21, YR23, YR27, Y11, Y15  Bricks: W1, W3, W5, W7

Our Friendship is Soda-lightful

Good Day To You My Crafty Friends and Welcome!

Today I am showing my latest card using one of my favorite Magnolia stamps.

This little darling is Pink Lemonade Tilda and I have colored her with my Copic Markers.  She is accented with some Stickles on her pants and hair ribbon.  I've added Glossy accents to her sunglasses and the soda glass and I used Perfect Pearls on the bubbles in her glass to mimic the pearls I used for the bubbles all around her.  I used Opaque White to add dots to her blouse but you cannot see them in the photos.

Here is the inside of the card where I've completed the sentiment .  I've used a lot of DooHickeys Dies: Lace Coaster, Rounded Frames & Tags, Bunny Tail from Club #8, Frame from Box #1

More DooHickeys:  Recipe Card, Rose Leaf, Tilda Tag, Flowers from Club #5



I made the soda bottle charm with silver embossing powder.


Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E4, E11, E21, R20  Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29  Soda: R83, BG70, BG75, G20, G43, YG67, N0, N2, N4  Blouse: C1, C3, Opaque White  Pants & Hair Ribbon: RV10, R83, R85  Shoes & Sunglasses: Y11, Y13, Y15, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9

Distress Inks:  Black Soot, Broken China, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Spun Sugar, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain


Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you have a good day and better tomorrows.

HUGS!
