Loves Me Loves Me Not

Hello Crafty Peeps!  I hope your having a great day and your weather is fine.  The weather here is horrid and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.  We might actually get to 121 degrees Fahrenheit today.  I would calculate that to Celsius but that would take brain power that I just don't have right now.  LOL!

This sweet Tilda stamp is Loves Me Loves Me Not from the 2015 Lovely Duo collection.  LOVE HER! The "I Love You" is from an awesome collection of Scripty Sayings by Lawn Fawn.

I hijacked the idea for these shabby flowers from the oh-so-very talented and creative Debbie Dolphin. Since I've been short on time lately, I needed something quick and uncomplicated and these fit the bill nicely.  My die cut flowers are from the DooHickeys Volume 5 release and the leaves are Spellbinders. The Feathers are also a DooHickeys die.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E50, E53, E57, E59  Top: E30, RV29, E32 Bottoms: BG70, BG72  Shoes: E70, E74, E79  Flower: G20, YG93, YG95, YR21, YR23, YR24

Thank you so much for stopping by.  The rest of the supplies I've used are listed below.  See you again in two weeks!

Sitting Windy Tilda

Hello Again Crafty Peeps!

Sorry I'm a bit late with this post this morning but have you ever photographed one of your creations only to realize you don't like it as much in the photo and that you really need to make a quick change or two?  That's what happened with this one.  While putting it together I kept thinking it needed more but the photo showed me that it needed less.

Here is the final result.

And here is the previous one.  The tags were just a bit too much and hid the beautiful floral paper which was the color inspiration.  Besides, those pics came out too dark due to our sketchy weather anyway.  Thankfully this morning is bright and sunny.

My card to share with you today features two Magnolia stamps, one old which is the Spring Fence from the 2010 Happy Easter collection (SO useful!) and a brand new one from the 2015 Sakura collection, Sitting Windy Tilda.  I just LOVE her!  Both are colored with Copic markers and accented with Distress Inks.

I've used a few dies here, including that gorgeous Lace from the DooHickeys Vol. 4 collection.  The butterflies are by Cheery Lynn, the Stitched Rectangle is from Lawn Fawn and the flowers and leaves are Spellbinders.  The papers are by Nitwit collections and printed from my computer.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E50, E53, E57, E59  Dress and Shoes: Y21, YR23 Fence: E70, E74, E79  Ground/Grass: YG93, YG95, E81, E84, E87, E89  Flowers: YG93, YG95, Y21, YR23, E07, E08

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a lovely weekend!
