Magnolia Layout Challenge

Okay then I finally did my layout challenge! Of course I wait till the last minute for everything, its due tomorrow! LOL
This is Tilda with hood and I love her too! Not many I don't love! I used all old ds I had in my scrap drawer, My flowers are Prima's and snowflakes are from a punch, I dabbed stickles on the for some sparkle. I don't know if you can see it, but on the green behind Tilda, I used my CB folder and used one of the new folders with the winter scene. I then lightly went over the image with white ink and a cotton swab. Ribbon is really old! When I get to Michaels around Christmas, I stock up on all their Christmas ribbon! As usual, Tilda is colored with Prisma's.
Thanks again for stopping by!


My Mojo is coming back slowly! Of course having the Holidays upon us there are so many other things to do!
We have a layout challenge going on at Magnolia-licious and I started this card out with that in mind. But before you knew it, I was lost in doing it different! I love this Tilda and her Holiday outfit. All paper is from my stash, and very old! I bought that great pointsettia last year when we were up to our cabin and they LSS was having a Christmas clearance sale. The verse is from...I have no idea! I have a few Christmas verses like that and can't remember where I bought them. I'm just glad I have them! Tilda is colored up..with nothing else but my Prisma's!
Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Skating Edwin & Tilda

Another favorite Edwin & Tilda. I got this stamp from Loreen at Wish on a Scrap. I colored it up last night using my Prisma's and googone. Then this morning thought I would put it together. This isn't how I had it pictured in my head, but all the same, I am happy the way it turned out. I used my Fiskars snowflake border punch on the side and ran the blue paper down the inside of the card. I used my nestie to cut out the oval and my copic pen to make the blue swish marks, going over them with my glitter gel pen. The trees are punched out from me EKSuccess punch. Snowflakes are brads I bought a couple of years ago and think I've used 2 of them before. Ribbon and paper is from my stash! Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a great weekend.

On a ROLL!

Ahhh, I love this Tilda! She is fun to color. Used my Prisma's and googone on her. I had this great blue sparkly ds and finally got to use it. This is like a gate fold card but there is an overlap. I started out with it the opposite way at 6x11, then decided I didn't like it, seemed to big and awkward, so then took the width down to 5.5 and liked it better, but still wasn't right so i flipped it around and then I liked it! Used my snowflake cb folder for the white oval, both cut from my nesties. I had this great white ribbon, this huge roll of it and never used it before. So liking the white and just that little shimmer it has, went with that, even though it has roses on it! Snowflakes were cut out with my punch and glittered up just a little to add some sparkle. I like the card, the ribbon is a little to stiff to make a nice bow.
Thanks for stopping by!

and the MOJO is BACK!

Well after recieving 6 new mags yesterday in the mail from Loreen the ole MOJO returned! So last night, the dining room table became a mess once again.
The base of the card is from SCS and is called a Double pocket card. I made this a while back. Worked perfect for what I wanted. Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat, I love this stamp! Colored with my Prisma's and googone. Nesties used for rectangles, DP is from TAC, Penelope and Willoughby,I love that paper! Ribbon is stash. I used a snowflake punch for the snowflakes and colored them with my dewdrops, just a touch of stickles and a pale green rhinestone in the middle! The little tree is also a punch. Winter Wishes is Fiskars "Tis the Season" acrylic stamp set. The card has two pockets but I only used one. The little envie is done on my enveloper, a wonderful gift from Loreen! Thanks Loreen!!! I love that tool! Making envies are FUN! I tied it with ribbon! I used my scor mat from Scor-Pals and that is also a great tool! all those angles are a cinch!
Thanks for stopping by and thank you also for not giving up on me! LOL
Have a great weekend!!

No Mojo

I can't believe I have lost my mojo! I haven't made on card in over two weeks! I'm hoping today the mailman brings me some goodies that I ordered from Wish on a Scrap! I ordered 6 new Magnolia's. I know that will help bring the mojo back! And of course having the dining room table cleaned off don't help!
You will see lots of new looks on my blog as far as my header and backgrounds. I have played around with graphics for about 12 years and am now teaching myself HTML. That is a lot of reading and a lot of trials n booboo's! But its fun, once you understand the first part, don't ask what the first part of HTML is, I have no idea! LOL
Please keep stopping by, I will have my mojo back shortly!!
Hope everyone is having a great week, and have a great weekend.
