Bringing Christmas Cheer......

Hello,

I hope that you are all well.

I would like to say a humongous thank you for all your get well wishes. They really made me feel much brighter and I am pleased to say that I am getting much stronger now, thank you xxx

Today I have a card I made using Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams "Tilda with Candy Cone".


I have stamped Tilda with Versafine Black Onyx onto 300gsm water colour paper.
I have coloured her in with distress ink pads.

I have decorated the inside.


Here is the inside left.


Here is the inside right.


I have stamped Magnolia's "Sweet Snowflakes" with Archival Coffee.
I have distressed the edges of my card with Walnut Stain and added Star Dust Stickles.


Thank you so very much for visiting with me.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Sending a String of Hearts.....

Hello,

I hope life is good with you and you are having a wonderful weekend!

I have been a poorly person in da house this last couple of weeks and am now at last starting to feel human again with my trusty roids. So please accept my apologies for not being able to visit you, I thank you so much for all your lovely comments.

 Luckily, here is a card I made earlier.


I have used another sweet Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection. This is Ribbon Tilda.

I have coloured my images in with distress inks. Added some sparkle using Star Dust Stickles and Sakura clear sparkle pen.

The Holly and Acorns from the same Sweet Dreams Collection have been heat embossed and cut out after distress ink colouring.

I have decorated the inside.


Here is the inside left.


The Mistletoe is a previous Magnolia Christmas image. 
The gorgeous Magnolia paper has been pin pricked all round the edge and I have added some Ranger Glossy Accents clear glue to high light some of the hearts.

Here is the inside right.


Lots of distressing with Walnut Stain and stickle glue.


A close up of Ribbon Tilda.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me.

I am so looking forward to getting my strength back and start crafting again. It's killing me not playing with my inks. Also, isn't it always the way when you are under pressure wanting to get going on Christmas cards, presents etc., lol! I hope you are all getting on top of your Christmas lists and card making. Absolutely love this time of year!

hugs and love

Santa coming to town......

Hello,

I hope you are all well and life is good for you.

Well I have now decided that I better get into the Christmas spirit and make a start on my Christmas cards. So here is my first 2011 Christmas card using one of the new Magnolia Sweet Dreams images. I love her.


I have coloured Winter Tilda with distress inks and for the sprinkly spronkly I have used Star Dust and Gold stickle glue.

I have decorated the inside.


The snowflakes and border are Magnolia Doohickeys dies and I have distressed this and everything on my card with walnut stain.

Here is the inside left.


The sentiment is a Magnolia script.

Here is the inside right.


So love the Magnolia fence Doohickey die.


Well thank you so very much for your visit.

I wish you a fabulous rest of the week, and whatever you are doing take care.

love
