I sprinkled some Vintage Aqua Fran-tage around my card for some texture and interest. My lace is from Melissa Frances and I added some string bling.

Midweek Magnolias - Buttons and Bows


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

I’m here with a reminder for Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog. There's a week left for you to enter a card or project for our current challenge theme…

“Buttons & Bows”


My DT card features "Divine Tilda" from the Waiting for Christmas collection. My mother passed away a couple weeks ago and I made this card as a “Thank You” for one of her many good friends.


I used some pretty Maja Design paper (can never have enough of these!) and a new butterfly die from Frantic Stamper. The sentiment is from LOTV. I love these because they are so versatile with a variety of messaging in the middle of the stamp.


I colored Tilda with Copics and I smeared some Brushed Pewter Distress paint randomly over the card elements. I got a bit messy with it but it adds a lot of texture and sheen as you can see in this photo.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. I gave her some tiny eyelashes for a little character. Isn’t she adorable?

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. I’ll be back next week; see you then.

Magnolia-licious - Add an Animal

*****Add an Animal*****

You have until August 10th to join in and have a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious.


I colored one of my new Tilda stamps. I love her adorable dress. I added a cute kitten from a Christmas stamp and fussy cut it and adhered it to my image. My kitty is the perfect height so Tilda is giving her some scritches. LOL


My papers are from BoBunny and I used some new dies for the border and handmade flowers from La-La-Land. The butterflies got a sprinkle of Aqua and Pink Fran-tage.


Here is a close up of Tilda with her kitty.

Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a Card

Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to see you all at the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog this morning. Our next challenge this fortnight is a personal favorite of mine…

“Anything but a Card”

I love creating paper crafted items that I can give away as gifts. This is a “bag in a box’ and I’ve had it on my “to make” list for some time now. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and it is so easy to craft.


I used one of the new stamps from the “Magnolia Stamp Club.” She is not in the store yet so I don’t know her name. I can’t wait to see the entire collection. They remind me of the 60s “Flower Power” era. I will likely be adding more of these cuties to my collection once they reach the store.


I used some pretty Maja Design paper and a new die set. I created a paper lace trim at the bottom of my bag with my dies and added tiny flat back pearls for a delicate touch.


I colored Tilda with Copics; her dress is colored with one of my favorite BG color combos. I love the turquoise color hues of these markers.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. I am still a bit shaky with coloring since surgery and my wrist gets sore after long lengths of coloring time. So I am taking it slow but I’m making progress every day.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. Have a great week.

Magnolia-licious - Anchors Aweigh

Hello, Magnolia Friends. I am finally back to blogging and sharing creative inspiration for Magnolia-licious. It has been a very challenging time this year with my wrist surgeries and now that I have pretty much recovered from those, I am back in my craft room on a regular basis coloring and creating cards. Although it seems that my creative Mojo has gone missing, or on holiday if you prefer, I am still trying my best to get back in the swing. I love coloring and creating cards so I am really happy to be in my creative space again. Our current challenge is…

*****Anchors Aweigh*****

So all you need to do is put an anchor on your project. The challenge will run until July 27th.

My card features "Pirate Tilda" and "Barrel and Skull" Magnolia stamps. 


I used some fabulous Maja designer papers and Bazzill card stock.


I love the new La-La-Land die cuts which I got in my club subscription. They are so cool...


Here is a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.

#116 Anything Goes - Midweek Magnolias


Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to see you all at the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog this morning. Our next challenge is one of my favorites…

“Anything Goes”

Since we are free to make just about anything you can think of, I decided to share my creation of a Pocket Letter Pal that will be shipped to my good friend Candy Mills.


She made a spectacular PLP for me with all kinds of lovely pink elements. I am so excited to bring this fun project to our crafting resort and I will be making more in the future.


This is the back of the Pocket Letter.


Here is a close up of Tilda.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. Have a great week.
