Hi Everyone! Hope you are doing well today? Well, we just got back from vacationing in Lake George, NY.  It was lovely to get away even though it rained for a few days during vacation (but a little rain never hurt anyone). What a beautiful area!  We drove back through Vermont and we stopped at all the cute shops on the way. Now I'm playing catch up with all my emails. I know I'll miss something.

Magnolia-licious Challenge - Ballet

Time for another inspiration challenge over at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.  Take a look at our inspiration photo chosen by our host this month, Suzan:

Awww aren't they precious?  I miss when my kids were this age and loved wearing tutus.  Well as I looked through my collection of Magnolia stamps, I realized that the only ballet Tilda I have is Pink Tilda Ice/Ballet Princess an oldie but goodie from the 2008 Pink Collection.

I used 2 dies from spellbinders for the leaves and butterfly and the heart tag doohickey die. Papers by K&Co. and flowers by WOC. I used copics to color this image: B24, B21, B000, B0000, YR23, Y23, Y21, Y000, E11, E00, E000, R20.

Thanks for stopping by. Be back soon! xo

Tilda's Mountain Retreat

Hi Everyone! Whew, it's a hot one today so I am spending it indoors with the air condition on and coloring.  :)

Well, today I made an outdoorsy type scenery card.  I've had this cabin stamp for some time, I think it might be from I Brake for Stamps and I thought Fishing Tilda would pair nicely with it.  When I got my Turning Leaves stamp kit and saw that cute Moose, I couldn't wait to add him to my scene. Just love him!

I didn't use any patterned paper today as my background image was so large so I just used brown and green cardstock. I hope it doesn't look too plain?

I enjoyed making this card today and I hope you can let me know what you think. Thanks for dropping by. Stay cool. xo

Tilda Un Anchor

Good morning everyone!  Today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, my lovely friend Suzan is our host and she has chosen the colors red, white, and blue as our colors to work with this week. 

Here is the card I created for today:

This is Tilda Un Anchor from the Summer Memories Collection. Don't you love those cute little shoes she has on? Absolutely adorable!    I colored my image with copics and the colors are:  E02, E01, E11, E00, E000, R20, R22, R24, R27, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, E35, Y23, Y21, Y11, Y000, B26, B24, B21, B000, E55, E53, E51.

I used Webster's Pages papers for this card and cut the boats out of the paper and placed them above the image as embellishment.  Also embellished with some stars cut out with my spellbinder dies.  That little wooden anchor embellie I found at AC Moores.  The ribbon was a gift from my friend Chris Olsen. Thanks sweetie!

Well that's it from me today. I hope you'll join us this week for our challenge!  Enjoy your day!
