Warmth and Love....

I have a friend that is always baking some kind of treasures so this Magnolia was perfect for her.


Tilda was colored with copics and then cut onto an oval.  I glossy accented her pan and shoes.  Stickles were added to her trim, hair-band and wings.  She was then double matted and put on top of two different DP's.  I punched some swirls and added some dew drops for depth.  Las but not least a bow in the corner.  The sentiment inside states " Sending you .....warmth and love this Christmas."

Snow.....balls.....


Here is my 3rd card with my friend Tilda!!!  One of my favorite past times in the snow. Throwing snowballs!!!

Tilda was colored with copics cut out and then placed on a holographic snowball!!!  I wanted it to look like the glisten of fresh snow.  I flocked her snowball and Glossy accented her boots, a bit of stickles also was added to give her sparkle.  The sentiment was a freebie I got at Create With TLC. Inside I also used one of her sentiments. It says "Enjoy the season, take it slow, make some time to play in the snow." I thought it was fitting!!! What do you think?

Ice Skating Anyone.....

It is a happy day in our household. Our fantastic Wisconsin Badger Football team won big time and are now Conference Champs and most likely on there way to the Rose Bowl on New Years Day!!! If you are interested in a creative video go to U-tube or Google and just type in Teach Me How To Buckey!!! A few UW students made this video and even the band director and the Chancellor of the University make an appearance. We even hear this song on the radio up here!

Here is number 2 in my Magnolia crunch of making my Christmas cards.  I wish I could skate, it is just so beautiful to see them gliding on the ice!  I know I would fall and break my . . .


Tilda was colored with copics and placed in the center of two ovals.  I glossy accented her boots and the ice below her.  Stickles were added to make her sparkle.  A bit of lace and some ribbon finished the look.  The ticket was a freebie I found. I do not know the artist!  I really liked the way this not so traditional colored card  turned out! I hope you do to!

Warm Holiday Wishes...


I have been feverishly working on finishing my Christmas cards.  I forgot that I had all of these darling Magnolia images from a swap I did so while I was down with the flu I colored.  The next few days I will show you all of the cards I made with my colored images.  I think I only have 2 more cards to make and I am done.



I colored Tilda with copics and put fun flock on all her fur. Glossy accents on her boots and Stickles gave her trim and wings sparkle. I then cut her out and placed her on a double matted Nestie. Ribbon and some snowflake buttons finished her off.  The sentiment was computer generated.  I hope you like!

Christmas Beauty....


I wanted to make most of my Christmas cards this year with Sweet Pea stamps so I have been trying to see my stamps in a different view.  This gorgeous beauty is called Purple Hearts and is one of Ching-chou Kuiks Fantasy Art Collection.  She can be purchased alone or with 3 others and a sentiment.


I colored her with my copics and added stickles to give her sparkle.  My background was done with chalk and I covered the hearts with red gemstones to look more like ornaments.  Double matted and placed on Holiday DP and adorned with a large poinsettia, she turned out pretty Chritmaslike!  What do you think?

Gem of The Ocean.....

One of my favorite places on the earth is the OCEAN so when I got the chance to showcase this magnificent creature I was so very pleased!!!  You can get this fascinating stamp at non other than Sweet Pea Stamps. It is one of our new artists' Jennifer Nilsson's "Sea Dragon".  You can purchase her as a single stamp or with 3 others and a sentiment.

I colored the stamp with copics and added stickles to give it some sparkle.  I took some photo paper and brayer-ed it to give an ocean like feel. The sea weed was made with punchanella ( what is left over after punching out sequins).  I cut a few sea shells on my Cricut and added a crinkle seam binding bow and a computer generated tag.  Last but not least a few gem stones were added for additional sparkle.  Working on this wonder makes me miss my opulent ocean and has me counting the days till I visit it again!!!  I hope you enjoy!

Winter Watcher.......


I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it many moons ago, I finally got the chance to get her inked up and onto a card.  Her name is Winter Watcher and is by Chingchou Kuiks Fantasy Art Collection found at Sweet Pea Stamps.  She can be purchase as a single stamp or with 3 others and a sentiment.

I colored her with copics and then added stickles here and there.  I wanted my DP to look like the night sky and then I remembered I had this piece of iridescent paper for ages and thought it was perfect. I hung some jewels from one corner of my framed stamp and a few snowflakes and to finish it off some fringed ribbon.  I hope you like!

The Lord is My Rock.......


As in every family some times we suffer a loss and that happened in ours this past week.  My hubby's Aunt had loss her Mother.  I adore this Aunt and wanted to make certain she knew that we are here for her.  So I made this sympathy card to send to her.  I had the image in my file, it was one of my freebies and I am sorry but I do not know the artist but I thought it was like I was sending her a flower arrangement that will never die and thought it was fitting.  

I wanted the card to be very simple and not toooooo glitzed up.  I found the wonderful circle sentiment at Create With TLC as a freebie and thought it was perfection for my use.  I colored my image with copics and then added just a touch of stickles on the flowers.  The red berries were created with liquid pearls.  A ribbon and my sentiment and I was finished.  These kinds of cards are so personal and really hard to make.  I hope it brings some comfort to our Aunt and her loss.

Fairy Lights.......


Hello and thanks a bunch for all the well wishes while I was under the weather.  I have finally made my way down to my studio to put a couple of cards together.  I have about 12 images now colored, since that could be done while sitting on the couch and all that I now need to do is put them on a card.  So I will be a busy girl in the next few days!!!!

My wonderful MIL's birthday is Monday and I chose to use Fairy Lights by Meredith Dillman.  This is one of the new artists from Sweet Pea Stamps.  She can be purchased as a single stamp or with 3 others and a sentiment!  Lynette has brought some talented new artist's on board at Sweet Pea.  It is well worth a venture over!

I colored my lovely with my Copics and then used chalks to create the background.  Onto a label nestie she went.  I also added 3 floral eyelets, a corner bow and flowers.  Stickles were added to her wings, the lantern and butterflies. I had a verse that I added in the card about my MIL being the light to whom we gather and love so it was a fitting image.  I popped it in the mail and it is on it's way.  I hope she likes it at much as I loved making it for her!

A Great Pick Me Up........


What a wonderful surprise I had waiting for me in my in box from one of my dearest friends Sandra aka Rose Petal.  I am suppose to tell you 3 things about myself and send this to 5 others.  I want to leave this for all the lovely friends who wished me well last week when I was down with the flu!  It is people like you that make this world a beautiful place to live in!!!!!

1)  I hate being late.  I always try to get to where I am going at least 10 - 15 minutes ahead of time and it drives me nuts when others are not that considerate and are constantly late for everything!

2) I can not stand when a picture or something hanging on the wall is crooked.  I will literally go and fix them wherever I am.

3.)  When I am writing something I hate scratching something out!!!  I have to white it out.  Just drives me nuts!!!!

Ok now you have learned some crazy things about me!!!! Thanks again for all the well wishes when I was ill.

Expecting.....


Good day to all of you. Well it definitely has turned cold here. I even had to wear a jacket today!!!  Brrrr...... I am hearing snow in the forecast and am not liking it at all.  Today I am happy to show you a card I made for my DIL birthday!!!  She is expecting and I thought this beautiful image from Sweet Pea Stamps called Expecting was perfect!!!  I love the way the artist ching chou kuik gives her lovlies just the most beautiful faces. 


I colored my image with copic and then matched her with some Autumn colored DP. I distressed and glittered the matting around her to give some extra sparkle along with many parts of the image. Got to have that bling!!!.  I made a flower out of ribbon and placed it in the center of a Prima flower and that sat on some seam binding ribbon tied together into a bow.  I hope she will enjoy her as much as I did making my card!
