Tyton Turns 4

Happy Saturday To You and Thank You for stopping by!

Today is my grandson Tyton's 4th birthday and I, being the proud Grammy, am here to gloat.  LOL!  Not really, but I am here to post the card I made for my little man.
Here is Edwin with Airplane having a great day in the Arizona sunshine.  I colored Edwin with my Copics to match this great masculine striped paper by Scrap Works called Buddy Boy.  The Light Blue Dots paper by Recollections matched perfectly as did all of my Bassill cardstock.
I made this into an easel card to give it interest while keeping the design clean and simple.  The number 4 was cut out on my Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook alphabet set on Roly Poly.  I did some stitching and aside from the buttons and brads, the embossed grass, cloud and sun are my only other embellishments.
I really do appreciate you popping by and I thank you for your kind comments.  They really do make my day and keep me motivated to blog.

Wintery Scene

Oh My Goodness!  It feels so good to be back in my craft shed and at my desk!  I hope your holidays were the best and that you were able to avoid the colds and flu that seemed to have gotten hold of just about everyone I know, including myself.

I have for you today, a wintery scene with my all time favorite Santa's Little Helper.  I know most everyone has a hard time choosing their favorite Magnolia stamp because they're all gorgeous, but this one is my favorite becuzzz she was the one that caught my attention the first time I ever saw a Magnolia Ink magazine and therefore the first Magnolia stamp I ever bought.
Sweet Tilda has been colored with Copics going off of a color combination recommended by Vili of Vili's Art.  Once I started coloring, I had to keep going and so created a tag in preparation for next Christmas.  I had such fun using a bunch of my dies, including Tim Holtz's Packages and Bows that I got for Christmas...  Okay, I gave it to myself for Christmas but that counts, right?  There is tons of glitter for that icy, North Pole feel and I even did up the back side a bit.
Everything I used for this tag is listed at the bottom of this post.  Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek and thank you so very much for your lovely comments.
