Good afternoon everyone! Before I head off to bed, I thought I'd show you a couple more book cards I finished. Let me tell you, I've had a lot of requests for Valentine book cards!!!!!! I'm running out of Valentine-themed dp and bazzill!!!
Have to visit the LCS....100 miles round trip for me!
I have no idea in which order my cards will appear on my posting....it's never the way I want it!
One of my cards features Celebration Tilda from the new Sweet Crazy Love Collection.
She is sitting on top of a box of Valentine chocolates from Alota. The papers are from BoBunny's Crush Collection. I also feature a Magnolia flourish die and MS heart border punch. The lace was a gift from my dear friend, Danielle and the lovely heart doily was a gift from my fabulous friend, Jacque.
Tilda is colored with copics....I love coloring Tilda in muted tones.
My next book card features Rose Scent Tilda, also from the new Sweet Crazy Love Collection. She is showcased on papers from the BoBunny Crazy Love Collection.
The flowers and red crystals are from Magnolia and I also feature a Memory Box die.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I truly appreciate your visit and your comments.

Good morning to all my awesome blogging friends....wishing you all a fabulous Friday! For all those heading to CHA....WISHING you a happy shopping adventure.......wish I could be there!!!!! Looking forward to seeing all the new crafting goodies!
This week our theme is "Buttons 'n Bows". Well, I have been itching to ink this adorable Special Edition Tilda. She appears to have embarked on a great adventure.
I love the papers, but don't know who to give credit, since they were retrieved from my scrap container.
On the inside of the card, I am featuring a cute lion from the Magnolia Animal/Pet Collection. All images are colored with copics.
Now, I would love to invite you to visit my talented friends and teammates and at the same time, it is our pleasure to introduce a new member to our little group.

Good afternoon everyone.....hope you are having a fun weekend with some time for crafting. I'd like to share a Valentine book card I was requested to make by a co-worker. I featured the whimsical couple by Kenny K which I found totally adorable. I colored the image with copics and featured them on papers from
BoBunny's Crazy Love collection. One of the flowers is from Magnolia and the other two are from my awesome friend, Jacque. The lace and ribbon is from my stash.
The inside of the card features a pocket with a tag for a short message.
The accordian style box was NOT EASY to put together. Believe me, my husband heard a lot of "bitching" coming from the craft room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It took several tries before I finally had a decent version. It just takes lots of patience.
Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. Your support means the world to me. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend. Hugs, Christina

Danielle and I, along with our teamies, invite you to our Inventory Challenge. This week we have a color challenge: Brown/Teal
To make the Animal Shelter happy, I am featuring Wilma. I think she is from last year's Valentine collection. I colored her with copics and placed her on a Nellie Snellen die. I also used a MS border punch and the fabulous papers are from Papertrey Ink's "Chocolate Remix" collection, a gift from my talented friend, Sharon.
The ribbon and buttons are from my stash, with the exception of the teal trim which was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque.

Good afternoon to all my awesome blogging friends! Just finished my three entries for the January Hjertebodens Yule Blogg. Actually, I finished them yesterday, then I realized that I totally forgot that at least one of them must be "anything but square".....soooo, back to work!!!!!
My "anything but square" card features Edwin on Christmas Eve, colored with copics.
Papers are by K&Company, a gift from my dear sweet friend....thanks, Sweetie!
I used the Magnolia fence die and fir, as well as a tree by Marianne Creatables.
Another card I made features Winter Tilda and the Christmas doorway. Papers are BG's Jovial Collection. Flower and leaves are from Prima and the lovely brad was a gift from my awesome friend, Jacque. The fence die, of course, is from Magnolia.
My vintage card features a lovely photo from Pion Design. Papers are from H. Holtz's
Seasonal Papers collection. I used lots of gold stickles around the edges of the card and the ribbon and lace is from my stash. The lovely gold brads were a gift from my sweet friend, Danielle.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving a comment.
Hope you are all having a fabulous day. Hugs, Christina

Good morning everyone! Snowstorm Angela has left us with approximately 2" of snow, less than expected.....not complaining!!!! Danielle and I, along with our talented crew, invite you to our Inventory Challenge. This week we are resurrecting an older Magnolia image. It's always such fun to work with the older images because they tend to be forgotten and neglected.
I decided to feature Tilda with Heart from the 2007 Christmas/Winter collection.
She also works well for Valentine. I colored this cutie with copics and showcased her on Maja Design papers. I also used the new "Cherish" die from Memory Box.
I applied Crystal Lacquer to the heart and cap to give it some shine.
The inside of the card features the La Rue Heart by Memory Box. The lace and ribbon is from my stash.
I would love to invite you to visit my teammates and view their amazing projects:

Good morning to all my fabulous blogging friends! Hope you will enjoy a beautiful Sunday....the weather in Northeastern Wisconsin is quite balmy for this time of year. I'm definitely NOT complaining....I love it!!!!
I'm loving this new collection, so many adorable images! Today, I am featuring the cute Tilda Loves Flowers image from the Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection. She is colored with copics. I used a souffle pen on the flowers to give them more dimension. The papers I chose are from the BG Curio collection. The inside and outside feature a Tim Holtz swirl die. I applied Stempelglede on the corners and Stardust glitter around all the edges of the Nestie. The lovely flower on the top right was a gift from a sweet friend. The green ribbon is from Magnolia-licious, part of a bundle.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Your visits are very important to me and I truly appreciate it! Hugs to all, Christina

Good morning everyone and a very happy Friday to all!!! Danielle and I and the rest of our talented team welcome you once again to our Inventory Challenge. This week we want to see charms.
I created this card with the Animal Shelter in mind....they want me to make more animal cards. This cute puppy, of course, is from Magnolia. I featured him on papers from BG's "Max & Whiskers" collection. I purchased the lovely charm at a pet shop and the fence is also from Magnolia. The sentiment was a gift from my sweet friend, Sandy.
Now, I would love to invite you to visit my teammates and view their lovely creations:

Good morning everyone! All I can say this morning is "Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr".....brutally cold in Northeastern Wisconsin!!!! Despite the cold, my Buddy wants to go for his walk.....he lives for his walk ... LOL!
I colored this adorable Tilda from the new Magnolia Crazy in Love Collection 2012.
She is colored with copics and featured on papers from my stash. Don't even know the name of the papers...sorry! I am entering this card in TOMIC's Challenge #31 which requires us to follow a sketch by the incredibly talented Liza and the color combination should be blue/white with glitter.

Good morning and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! The weather is getting downright nasty in Northeastern Wisconsin. We had sleet last night which turned to snow....it is still snowing and the winds are going to be a huge problem tonight!!!! Lots of blowing and drifting expected!
I had a little time to play yesterday so I decided to ink this adorable Sweet Pea image called "Precious". I colored this cutie with copics and I am featuring her on papers by BoBunny called "Crazy Love Collection". I used my Nestie heart dies and the lace, flowers and berries are from my stash.
I thank you for your visit and I hope you all had a fabulous New Year's Eve!
