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

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

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.

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

Kendall Turns 7

Good Day To You My Creative Friends!

I know, long time no see, huh?  Oh my goodness!  My husband and I decided to take advantage of a Memorial Day sale and purchased new flooring for our living room, dining room and kitchen.  (What we had was 30 years old and really gross).  That one purchase kicked off one heck of a renovation.  We decided to paint too and found that we needed to repair a wall and part of the ceiling from water damage sustained before putting the new roof on.  While we were replacing studs and drywall, why not put in a fireplace?  There had already been one there before, how hard could it be? o_O  So all new paint, baseboards, doors, knobs, curtains, rods, light switches, outlets, covers, an area rug, is just the tip of the iceberg to name some of the extra purchases.  We're not even close to done but it already looks so different.  Anyway, this project has taken up all of my time when I'm not at work so card making has been on the back burner but, oh, how I've been missing it.

I did manage to get a little something done for my sweet niece Kendall.  This is my first pocket page and I hope you all like it.

I ran out of time and did not get to take photos of my project out of the pockets, but you get the general idea here.  I used lots of beautiful Magnolia dies and this sweet stamp called Have Dinner With Me Tilda.

Here is a close-up of the cake from the DooHickeys Club Volume 5

I free-handed the beverage cup but used several Magnolia dies for accents.  On the back side of this panel I included a Starbucks gift card so Kendall could have her favorite treat, Lemon Cake and an ice cold Milk.


Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20  Blouse & Bow: BG07  Roses: R37  Leaves: G46  Hair: YR21, YR31, E35, E37


Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you are having a wonderful summer and I will see you again real soon.

HUGS!

For My Mom

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Happy Friday!

Today I am showing you the card I made for my mom for Mother's day.

Each year, for the past several, I've made my mom a card with a gardening theme.  Of course, I wouldn't want to break tradition and that being said I have once again used my beloved Magnolia stamps and dies.  This little sweetie is Tilda Working In The Garden from the 2016 Sea Side collection.  I've colored her with Copic Markers and Distress Inks.

Most of the dies I've used are Magnolia DooHickeys.  For the background I have used Recipe Card.  The branches with little leaves are from the Sakura Lanterns set and the larger leaves are Rose Leaves.  Around the edge of the kraft I used the lace die from the DooHickey Club vol. 9 collection.

The beautiful bright flowers are Recollections.  I have spattered the whole card with Gesso.

Here you can see better, the lace I made with the DooHickey lace die and crinoline fabric.

For the inside of the card I used a sentiment and a heart die from Magnolia #3 Vintage Box.

Copic Markers - Face: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20  Hair: E25, E30, E31, E33, E79  Shirt & Apron: YG03, YG11, YG25, YG67, G24, G28, G29  Gloves & Kerchief: RV10, R83, R85, R89  Boots: Y17, YR14, YR24, YT27, YR31
Distress Inks: Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Some of the supplies used and not mentioned above are listed at the bottom of this post.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day!
