Fantasia Tilda

Most every body's favorite little girl, mini Tilda is having a dream that she is living in a magical land with fairies and gnomes and beautiful butterflies. Her best friend Nat the Gnome has gone to get them a luscious sparkling drink and Tilda is waiting in the shade of her favorite mushroom tree for him to return. A friendly butterfly flutters by and leaves jewels along the way.

 She giggle and waves, wishing him on his way and is just plain enjoying the day. She then  remembers Nat and  hopes he returns soon because she is very thirsty and loves to feel the bubbles tickling her tongue. Oh where can he be? They must hurry if they are going to continue their journey...(to be continued).

My little friend is mounted on Stampin Up Cardstock and Creative Imagination DP (I think this DP was made for this little scene). The background digi was a Freebie from Torico.  I can not remember from what store (maybe Tilda or Nat knows). I used Glossy accents on the "buttons" and the butterfly (clip art) was colored with pastel chaulk, as were all thedigi stamps. PSX Designs "Sparkles" were used to bling things up as well as Way2Scrap rhinestone flourishes, and ribbon and rhinstone flowers  from Hobby Lobby.

I hope you enjoyed mini Tilda's adventure and come back to read the next chapter. You can subscribe or follow so you will know when Tilda's travels continue.

This is for the following Challenges...

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs and God's Blessing to All.

Mums the Word

Good morning everyone,I have  been real busy in the real world with family, so I've  been gone awhile. Made this little card for a sketch challenge at Stamp Fairy, and forgot to use their image...opps! Lol, but that's ok, I like the simplicity of it and love using black as matting; black seems to make colors pop and I love that. It is very bright and cheery out so this pic was taken outside and it really shows off the embossing I think. I chose an image from JustRite Stamps I got from Joan's Garden, sweet, sweet lady BTW. I colored the image with copics, blending yellow and green as requested at the Make it Colourful Challenge.
 the card stock is Bazzill , the ribbon is from Mike's $1 bin and I made the bead embellie, the pearls are Recollection's.

Ladybug Patch

This little sweetie is from Stitchy Bear Digi Stamps "Kellies Kids" and I colored her a while back with pencils, but did not have any baby oil at the time; I wish she was a bit sronger in color, but I think she is still cute. Her oval Spellbinders diecut is edged with black Stickles. The sketch is from Friday Sketchers #145.
 I used a reversible DP  from Reminisce "Sugar and Spice" and the cardstock is Paper Company. I made the flowers and added  black Stickles. Now a Ladybug needs friends so hers are from Jesse James Buttons, The rhinstone flourish is from Way2Scrap and the leaves were punched with what I believe to be a Carls Punch. I also used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the black band.
The card came together very easily, I just wish I could have found the ladybug charm I know I have ....somewhere....over It will show

I am entering this little gal in the following challenges...

Thank you for taking time to drop by, I love visitors! Leave some lovin' and as always...Hugs and God's Blessings to all.

Something Green

Good evening just a little ole' something green. I used a "Kellies Kids" Digi from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps I love ALL digis!

I colored the sweet thing with Derwent pencils and baby oil.


The inside sentiment is from Flourishes "Irish Blessing" Stamp set I won at random for Jan's (the owner) Birthday Blog Hop. Woohoo!

This was a fun shaped card to make...hope you enjoyed it. Be sure to leave some lovin.'

Goodwill Sunshine Baby

Happy Sunday! I certainly hope all is well with you. I would like to say my heart and prayers go out to all those effected by the catastrophic situation in Japan. We are so blessed in this country and should thank God everyday for all that we have.

This bright little baby card was soooo much fun to make! The first pic shows the depth of the card the best, whereas the second one  shows the true copic coloring of the wee babe. I chose to use the Sweet Stop Sketch for the design and a MO Manning digi stamp for the focal point. This baby fairy is so sweet! The card stock is from Stampin' Up, Mike's and I used tag board as the base and colored everything with copics.
 The oooh so cute duckie DP is from Frances Meyer and  the adorable Baby Play Things DP is from Rainbow World, I think they both work out perfectly.
On an adventure to Goodwill I found a baggie full of baby party favors one of which turned out to be terrific for the sentiment; I just had to include the feetsies, so I added shadow with copics and mounted them on a Quikcuts tag I made. They are so cute!
Next I made some vellum flowers with rhinestone centers and I even though not in the design I just HAD to add the baby ribbon that has rattles and teething rings on it (this ribbon was also from Goodwill- what fun!). And guess wha? There werealso little plastic duckies in that baggie too---the best 50c I ever spent!

 the sweet little baby fairy needed a little somepim' somepim' so I used glitter on her wings; EVEN fairies in training need sparkly wings to flutter. (giggle). I am so happy I got to share her with you and I think she really needs a cuddle!

She is being entered in the following Challenges...
The Sweet Stop #99 Sketch Mar 18
Digital Tues #101 "Welcome Little One" Mar 14

Vintage Birthday Wishes Easel Card

Just a couple quick posts for today. A friend needed a victorian Birthday card for her future DIL so I created this for her. I used Bazzill cardstock,  a DP with no name on it, from JoAnn's.  I also used Label Four from Spellbinders and my Lace Circle punch from Fiskars for the matting.The Rhinestone flourish is fromWay2Scrap, the large flowers and the roses I inked and cut off of ribbon trim from HobLobby; as is thebraiding. I used a scrap of DP from my stash to make the accordian base flower, and put a pearl brad in the center. The Birthday sentiment is a Free Digi from Bizzy Becs

Morning's Glory

                                    Good Morning! My wish is that everyone is having a Blessed Day and that they are enjoying themselves in Blogville. I always spend waayyyy to much time looking at everyone else's creations and then panic when I realize I am about to miss a closing date...Yikes! Come know we all do But I have a valid excuse; I have been with my youngest granddaughter. This pic was taken last night at my other son's house. Zoey is so good natured and is a social butterfly at 19 months. She made the rounds to every one's lap. Lol. I am so very thankful they came to visit from Ca. In the second pic are my youngest sister's young adult daughters.

 That said here is today's creation. For this card I used a JustRite Stamp I purchased at Joan's Garden. [There is still time to enter the JustRite Blog Hop Challenge, there is a Fabulous prize to win.] My pictures are not the best because  it is raining and very grey outside...and lamplight give some of the pics a yellowy tint.
The papers are Bazzill and the doily is from the Dollar Store. Since I wanted the flower to really pop I used minimal embellishments.

The flourishes are from Way2Scrap and the single pearls are from Recollections. I also used my Spellbinders circle die, cut the scalloped circle in half and embellished it with more pearls.

Challenges I am entering...

I hope you enjoyed the card and leave a comment...I definitely appreciate them.
Hugs to All!

Spring's Just Around the Corner

I like this Sassy Cheryl's digi so much I am using it within a couple days of each other. This type of image is a part of me, you see I lived as a teen in the this is not retro to me...Bob Mackey posters all the way baby, back

I see the pic shows several shadows, they look like smudges, by the butterfly tail, paper clips, and the string "frame".  All paper is Bazzill and the butterfly stamp is from Mike's dollar bin, and is pop-dotted. I colored everything with copics, and used Glossy Accents on portions of the vase. The corners of the image cardstock were punch with a notch punch I have had for years and the thread was colored with the same pink copic I used on the image. Using a B00 copic I colored three mini pearls which were placed on the blooms as their "gleam".

Thisis a better pic of the dimensional gloss on the vase. The fun colored clips were from the  dollar store. Oh I forgot the DP is an older Colorbok.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges...

Wild Orchid 18# "Anything Goes" Mar 12
