More Christmas Cards

I have a little story to share. One day on my lunch break at work I was on the internet and some how I landed on Claudia Rosa Blog Pretty Pressings I saw some of the most amazing and beautiful cards with these darling little images that I soon found out to be called Tilda and Edwin and I have been hooked ever since then. Claudia is such a sweet person and I am so thankful for her blog that she shares her amazing talent with all of us. I made this Christmas card and small gift to send to her for Christmas. I hope that she likes it. I also made a couple of treat sacks for Claudia's little boys. If you have not seen Claudia's blog you have to click on the link and check it out she is truely a amazing designer.
Thanks so much Claudia!

Friday Sketchers #70 Baby Shower Card

Hi Everyone,
I have finally had a chance to participate in the Friday sketchers challenge. The challenge this week is by Jacque who is one awesome designer. You can find the sketch here and also check out the samples by all the other fabulous designers. The prize for one lucky person is being offered by Digital Stamp Oasis. Ellie is offering 5 single images as the prize.
I needed to make a baby card for a up coming baby shower my daughter and I are giving for my daughter's friend. So I choose to follow Jacque's sketch this week.

Here is the inside of the card I left it pretty plain.

I had to show you a picture of the 3 tier diaper cake we made for the new Mom as a gift and the flower arrangement I made for the cake table.

Here is another picture of the card. Sorry I actually screwed up and did not mean to put this at the bottom but oh well.
If you have time to leave a comment I would love to here what you think of my card.

Daddy's Birthday Card by Blaize

This is my 7 year old granddaughter Blaize. She wanted to make a birthday card for her Daddy from her and her brother Izzic. So she selected a Tilda to be her and a Edwin to be her brother and started coloring away. She told me that she realized that she colored her brother with kinda girl colors but she figured that it would be ok because she has a friend (Bradon) that has a pink t-shirt that says real men wear pink. LOL She also explained that her brothers hands are black because he likes to wear his black gloves. Mommy says that she has only seen him wear them once. Any way that's the story behind the color choices.
Blaize picked out all the papers that she wanted to use and I did all the cutting other wise it is all Blaize's card. I loved it and most of all so did her Daddy.
Blaize said that since she kinda did girl colors on the front she would make the inside more boyish looking. LOL

Hope this cute little card brought a little ray of sunshine your way.
Thanks for stopping by.

Magnolia-licious DT Tricks-n-Treats Blog Hop

Hi ...Here is my entry to the Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop check it out here.
This was so much fun and the Design Team had some very cute sets for us to draw inspiration from.
I selected the Batty Boo Basket for my treat container you can find the directions here
and I decided not to put a handle on mine.
On my card the haunted house is a cuttle bug folder that I embossed on some Core'dinations card stock and then sanded it. I used stickles in one window and on the moon. I also used Stickles on Tilda's dress and Pumpkin. I also used several of the little goodies that Diana sends along with your Magnolia orders. If by some strange reason you have not ordered from Diana check out her site here. Diana has the best customer service and also has discounts for Magnolia-licious members.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would love to here what you think of my set.
Have a great week!

Magnolia-licious August DT Sketch

Hi Everyone,

Where oh where has this month gone? My grandson Dakota started back to school last week and my granddaughter Blaize starts back Monday. The summer sure did fly by. Anyway I final got my card for the August DT Sketch finished here is the link to the web site.

The sketch this month is by Becca Feeken if you have not visited Becca's blog you are really missing out she is a very talented lady and has some wonderful tutorials on her blog. I followed one of Becca's tutorials to make the folded flower on top of my small circles. They are so easy to make and they can make a fabulous bow for a gift if you make them bigger. Here is a link to Becca's tutorial for these flowers:

The design paper that I used was Basic Grey: Urban Prairie

I ordered my Tilda from Sweden but since I did that I found out that we can request a Tilda if Diana does not have her and Diana will do her best to get it for us so from now on that is what I will do. Diana has a large inventory of Tilda's and fabulous customer service. So buy your Tilda's here .

I used Stickles on Tilda's wings, hair bows and strawberry. On Tilda's crown, shoes and centers of my flowers I brushed on Shimmerz Blingz Gold Glimmer.

I made the center of my flowers with my new I-top tool it seemed to work very well.

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my card. Oh that reminds me I tried to follow Claudia Rosa tutorial on how to edit your pictures. If you missed Claudia's tutorial you can find it here. I hoping that my pictures will look a little better.

I would love to here what you think of my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate all of you!

Tilda with Baby

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. My daughter asked me to make a baby card for one of her best friends that is expecting a baby girl in November. I just finished it this morning so my daughter (Amy) has not seen it yet. Can't wait to show it to her and I hope that she likes it or I will be back to the drawing board. LOL I'm pretty sure she will like it.
Any way to the details:
My Tilda can be purchased fron Diana at Magnolia-licious. I colored Tilda and baby with my Copic markers and I did not take a picture of them this time sorry. My paper is from K & Company Itsy Bitsy, Stampin Up Lovely Lilac. The word stamps are from a set from Cloud 9 Designs called Simple Thoughts-Baby I purchased these at Michaels. I used Stickles on Tilda's wings and headband. The purple flowers are also from Michaels wedding section. I think the little pink bows on the inside came from Michaels as well not 100% sure on that. The binkie on the inside came from Hancock fabrics. I think that is all the details.

Please if you have time I would love to know what you think of my card.

I would also like to thank everyone that does take the time to leave a message you are all awesome!
Have a good day.

Tilda Loves Purple

Hello again,
This is the 3rd card that my friend asked me to make for her. This little Tilda will be going to her daughter for her 30th birthday. My requirements were it had to be purple and she wanted there to be glitter. So I have been saving this Basic Grey wisteria paper collection (Love It) and knew this would be the perfect paper. I also had some light purple glitter paper that goes well with the other purple so that covered my glitter requirement. Most of the glitter paper is on the inside of the card. I also did a little sewing on this card. I used flower soft on the flowers to give them some dimension.
If you have time to leave a comment I would love to hear what you think. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week.

Tilda Card For 2 Challenges

I added some shadow around Tilda and at her feet to help her stand out in the picture above.

Wow it has been a long time since I have posted a card. It seems like summer is flying by and all I get done is mow the yard and go to work. It has been so very hot here. But any way I hope you like this card.

I am going to enter it in the July Magnolia-licious Highlites Challege where the sketch to follow this month was created by the fabulous Jacque!

I also am going to enter this in the Copic Creations Challenge #7 Brunette Hair the sponsor for this challenge is Diana Crick and the prize is one of Diana Scor-Pals. These are a must have in my opinion!

The Tilda that I used on this card I order straight from Sweden. I did not find her at Diana's web site and I just had to have her. I do order almost all of my Tilda stamps from Diana at the Magnolia-licious web site. Diana has by far the best selection of Tilda's. She also offers us a great discount for being a member of the yahoo group and very reasonable shipping. Check out her store here it is awesome and become a member of the Magnolia-licious yahoo group!

The card stock I used was from K & Companyclassic K Margo and Stampin Up night of navy.

I also used my new Borderabilities Lattice Border that I won from the Spellbinders new release blog hop.

If you have time to leave a comment that would be super. Your comments mean a lot and I would like to thank all of the kind people who have left me such encouraging comments in the past!

Hugs to all,
