I Give You My Heart.....................


I hope like me you had a fabulous Christmas and you all kept well.
All that planning and it went super quick. Next time I may be a little better prepared. But, then again maybe not.
Today I would like to share a card I made using Magnolia's 'Lonely Tilda with her Heart' from the With Love Collection 2013.

I painted Tilda with distress ink pads. Pin pricked around the edge. Stamped Magnolia's New York postal stamp and then distressed the edges with Walnut Stain.
The border die is Magnolia DooHickey.
Paper Magnolia.
Lace, Seam Binding and Rusty Bell The Ribbon Girl.
Flowers WOC.

I cut the letters from Magnolia's 'Love Postcards' paper. Then added a Studio 490 Heart.

The Magnolia Tag DooHickey I stamped with Magnolia's Love Text. I also painted the WOC metal corner with gesso.

I decorated the inside too.

Thank you so very much for your visit with me!
I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and thank you all so, so, much for all the support you have given me. You are so very lovely and I appreciate you all so much!
Take care and lots of happy crafting for 2013!

Special Birthday!.....


Goodness me! Christmas is a fast approaching hope that you have everything under control. Got my Christmas food delivered yesterday so phew that's out the way. Just got to get a few last minute bits and then  I can relax :)

Today I would like to share with you a gift bag I altered for a very special Niece celebrating a big birthday.

I have painted 'Tilda with Heart Socks' from Magnolia's With Love Collection with distress ink pads.
Everything has been edged with walnut stain.
The Chocolate Ticket, Post Marks are from the With Love Collection.
Ribbon and Flowers The Ribbon Girl.
Paper Maja.
Heart border Magnolia DooHickey.

The leaves are a DooHickey die cut. I used Coredination paper and distressed the edges to allow the inner colour to show through.

Magnolia's Heart DooHickey coupled with the DooHickey Keys for the tag and the gorgeous charm from The Ribbon Girls.

I decorated the bag of the bag too. Love that Chocolate ticket.

Thank you so much for your visit with me!
I wish you all lots of stress free Christmas preparations!
