Good morning everyone. Danielle and I welcome you to Inventory Challenge #12 "Anything Goes". I actually made this card for Friday Sketchers using Claudia's wonderful sketch, but, alas, I missed the deadline.
The Bo Bunny papers I used were a gift from a friend. The wonderful vintage image is from a MF kit I purchased a couple of years ago. The pearl centers on the bows are from MM.
I used my L-Em punch for the leaves.
I would like to invite you to view Danielle's beautiful creation, as well as our other team member, Charlene. Rene.....we miss you! Please take care of yourself and have a happy New Year!

Good afternoon to all my blogging friends! We had 5" of snow overnight and now we're getting freezing drizzle....Yuck!!!! Anyway, it's a good day for crafting!!!
As you can see, I used the new Tilda from the winter kit...don't know her name as of yet! I followed the sketch by the incredibly talented TINA
for Stamp with Fun. I turned the sketch so that it could accommodate the image. The papers are BG Curio and the lace is from my stash, sprayed with glimmer mist. I stamped the image on a die by Nellie Snellen.
The image, of course, is colored with copics.

Today I have a scene card using three Magnolia stamps...Homespun Tilda, Tilda with Lantern and Winter Pines. The two Tildas are from the 2007 Christmas collection and I know that the Homespun Tilda is currently available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. I didn't see Tilda with Lantern, but I know Diana will be more than happy to get this cutie for you!

Good Evening to all my blogging friends. Hope you are having a relaxing evening.
I've been busy attempting to create a tea-light card for LOVELY HAENGLARS ONLY.
I have been searching for a tutorial and came upon one by Marianne. She did a wonderful job and you can find it HERE.
I used Melissa Frances "Virginia" papers, Nesties, Magnolia leaf die, flowers by Prima and the gorgeous brad is from Dovecraft. The ribbon is from my stash.
I purchased Balsam Cedar tea lights for the card.
I used a mini Haenglar for the inside of the card. I brushed gold smooch on the wings, but it really doesn't show up well on the picture.
Thank you so much for visiting. Now that I have made my first tea-light card, I will definitely be making more. Hugs, Christina

Good morning and happy Friday to everyone! Danielle and I welcome you to our Inventory Challenge #8. I was also going to enter this card in the Stamp with Fun Challenge #86, but realized it was too late. I followed the wonderful sketch by the talented Andrea-Emmi41.
All the papers are from my stash, some of them were purchased several years ago.

The beautiful cream colored lace was a gift from my dear friend, Claudia...thanks, Hon! The red vintage flower was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque....the perfect touch, don't you think?? Thank you!

Good evening everyone! I have been taking some time and admiring all of your beautiful works of art and I am just amazed at all the talent out there.
I made this card for the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE BLOG. We were to take our inspiration from a picture of a Christmas tree, wreath, gifts and window. I chose to follow up on the Christmas tree and I immediately knew which two Tildas I wanted to use. The tree and both of those cuties are from the 2008 Christmas collection and available for purchase at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. The gorgeous red glittery ribbons and flower were a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque.
I also used the Magnolia lace die and chandelier glass, also available at Diana's store.
The lace is from my stash, as well as the gold ribbon and paper.
Thank you so much for visiting. Your wonderful comments mean so much!
