Chase's 11th Birthday

I made this card for my youngest grandson, Chase's 11th birthday. He is wanting a dirt bike real bad. He wanted money for his birthday and Christmas from all of his family. I put money inside the camo envelope.
I started out with SU orange cs since he wants the bike to be orange. I also used SU images on the front of the card along with Edwin. I colored Edwin's skin with Copics E000, E00,R20 and drew in his glasses. Edwin started out with a lizard on his shoulders which I removed when I paper pieced his camo outfit. His shoes were colored with G93, G95 and G99 (I think). Sentiments were computer generated.
He liked the card and really liked the money inside the envelope....I actually got a hug out of him.

Tilda and her eggs

Mini Chef Tilda has been in the kitchen all morning coloring eggs for the annual Easter egg hunt at the local kiddie park. Tilda volunteers her time to color and hide the eggs because she loves to make all the children happy. She's waiting for Edwin to showup to help her hide them among all the flowers in the field. Edwin will receive hugs and smiles from the children when he dons the Easter bunny costume and passes out the candy.
I have thought for awhile about what mini Magnolia I own that I could use on a card with an Easter/Spring theme for the Magnolia-licious Easter-Spring Extravaganza contest. Most of my minis are geared for Christmas..... so....#391 mini Chef Tilda from the Yummy for your Tummy collection won. She can be bought at Diana's Magnolia-licious store.

Tilda has flowers for you!!

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post! Where does the time go??? My husband, mother-in-law and I took a cruise to the eastern Caribbean in February. We enjoyed ourselves in the "warm" weather but now we're home and I'm already sick of this winter again.

For my card I used SU cardstock, SU ink (Tilda's clothes, clouds and flowers) and the sun is from a SU stamp set.... God is Love. The DP is Lime Rickey by Basic Grey. Tilda with Spring Bundle, small Snail and flowers in the frame are all Magnolia stamps. Tilda's skin was colored with Copics E000, E00,, R20. Tilda's flowers were punched from an EK Success punch. I used the Nestabilities scalloped circles to make the frame. Stickles was applied to the centers of all the flowers and a coat of Glossy Accents is on the snail's shell. See the cute "little" bow on the bundle that Tilda is holding???? I didn't think it was cute when I was trying to tie it.

Challenge Blog(s) entry

Boy this is a first for me...........entering a challenge (Magnolia-licious Highlites) and there is three weeks left to enter. Usually I'm down to the wire.

Patti Jo had a fun recipe for us to follow: Hearts, Pink, Silver, White and green if needed for leaves. I used SU white and basic gray cardstock. The DP is by the Paper Studio and a white heart doily by Fox Run Craftsmen. The swirls were made using a Sizzix die and silver metallic cardstock from DCWV. I used a MS loops heart punch on the panel behind Tilda. The roses are from WOC and the open rose sits on a prima flower. A MS punch was used for the branches behind the roses. Tilda was colored with the following Copics: E000, E00, R20, E31, E33, E35, E53, R81, R83, R85, Co, C1, C3, C5. Silver Stickles was added to her hair adornment and the lace on her dress. I just noticed I didn't add the white dots to Tilda cheeks. I will !!

Now I'm going to try to direct link this on the challenge. Last time I tried...I had a mess. Wish me luck and as always thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

When I looked at the living room picture on the Magnolia-licious blog, I saw creams, taupes, yellows, and touches of rust, orange, and pink from the flowers and the doily. The card I made is my interpretation of what I saw.
Tha cardstock is by Stampin Up as is the Flannel Plaid background stamp. Jam Tilda was bought from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store. I do not know the maker of the couch stamp. I stamped off this image from a friend awhile back knowing I would use it one day. Tilda was colored with Copics E000, E00, R20 and Prisma colored pencils. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to add shading on Tilda.
Thank you for looking and as always for the wonderful comments I receive.

Tilda writing in a diary

I'm entering this in the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. We were to use orange and green on our card. I've got alot of orange and green on this card....thinking maybe I should have made the flowers blue to pick up the blue in the background paper.
Stampin Up cardstock was used and the DP is by My Mind's Eye and DCWV. Stampin Up French Script was stamped on the cs behind Tilda. Tilda #379 from Raising the Ceiling collection at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store was colored with Copics E000, E00, R20 for skin and Prisma pencils for her clothing.
Various punches from EK Success, Stampin Up and Martha Stewart were used. Also used Nestabilities Lacey Circles and circle dies, ribbon and pearls. Sentiment by Hero Arts.
Thank you so much for looking and as always.....all comments are very much appreciated.
