Magnolia-licious Challenge #6

It's time for another photo inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog, here is our photo brought to you by our talented teammate, Cabio:


So cozy, isn't it?  Here is what I came up with:


Luckily I had this couch stamp which is what I took from the inspiration photo.  This image is called Tilda Holding Heart and you can find it at the Magnolia Sweden store.

I used a Magnolia Doohickey (Old Swedish Lace) for my border around the card.  I used a Spellbinder die for the shape of my card and I used some yummy Basic Grey dp. My flowers and heart pearls are from Wild Orchid.  My "love" sentiment is a chipboard piece from Make It Crafty that I colored red with Smooch paints.


I used the following copics to color my image:

E11, E000, E00, R20, R29, R27, R24, R22, W3, W1, W00, YG67, YG63, G21, G20, YR24, YR23, Y21, Y00, E37, E35

I hope you liked my card today. Please visit the rest of the DT for more awesome inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!

Peachy Tilda

YAY! It's the weekend! This was a tough week getting back into the routine of getting up early, working, and the kids going  back to school.  Now starts the countdown to summer!!! Here is a card I made for the Make It Colourful Challenge which really has me longing for summer:



The challenge this week is to use warm or cold colors on our project. I chose the warm colors (red, brown, orange,yellow, yellowish green). My background images are digital images from Make It Crafty.  I used Peachy Tilda that is from Magnolia.



Unfortunately my photo of this card appears much lighter. In  person the colors are much warmer and brighter.

I hope you like my card and can leave me a comment. I love to read them! Thanks for visiting me today! Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year and some news

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and may this new year bring you much joy!! 

It was really nice to have the kids home from school this past 1 1/2 weeks. We got to spend alot of time together just hanging out without any responsibilities or activities to run too.  Tomorrow it's back to school and midterms... eeek!

Today I wanted to share a Happy New Year card that I made:


I used Tilda and Edwin Dancing and the champagne bottle and glass by Magnolia.  I cut out my letters and numbers with my Cricut Expression - hmm... now that I look at it, the letters weren't placed very evenly :(...   I did have trouble placing these tiny letters down with glue... I hope you still like it?

Here are a few closer views of my card:






Well I wanted to share with you some unbelievable news that I received just before Christmas.



I have been asked to join the Magnolia Sweden Design Team.  I can't tell you how shocked, suprised, and thrilled I was to receive such an amazing early Christmas present. I'm so honored to get to work with this amazing group of talented ladies.

Well, thanks for visiting me today and for any comments your might leave me.  Take care!! xoxo
