Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends! I'd like to share with you a couple of fabulous Saturated Canary images. My daughter's birthday is coming up and I am so happy Krista released this awesome "Fishy" image.....she is perfect for my outdoors girl! I also had the perfect dp to go with the image purchased many years ago and I searched and searched and could not find it, so I had to improvise. I remembered I had the tackle background stamp somewhere.......found it! It's a Northwoods stamp, as well as the sentiment.
I don't know the name of the image on the other card, but it certainly features a girl with attitude. I colored her with copics and showcased her on papers from Best Creations. The lovely flowers were a gift from my friend, Jacque.
Thank you so much for visiting. Your support is truly appreciated. Hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs, Christina

Good afternoon everyone...hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday! The weather in Northeastern Wisconsin is absolutely perfect today....couldn't ask for a nicer day!
I'd like to share an Easter card with you today that I actually made more than a week ago.
A card with with this particular Tilda and the Magnolia tree, along with the rabbit, was requested by a friend. Tilda with basket is from the 2011 Easter collection and the tree and rabbit is from the 2010 collection. The lovely papers are from Pion Design, my absolute favorite papers!
On the inside of the card, I am featuring Tilda holding a rabbit from the 2009 collection. I have two yummy Ritter Chocolate bars from Germany in the pocket...they fit perfectly.
All images are colored with copics. Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
I appreciate all your comments. Hugs, Christina

Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends....wishing you all a fabulous Friday!
It's time once again for our Inventory Challenge.....where does time go????
This week's theme is "The Ideal Couple...Tilda and Edwin together". Well, first thing that came to mind, of course, is a wedding card, but I did not feel like making this type of card, so I looked through my book and decided on this cute image of Edwin and Tilda doing the happy dance. This cute stamp is from the 2010 Christmas Collection. I showcased this cute couple on BoBunny's Gabrielle Collection.
Everything else is from my stash. It's a very simple card...no flowers! Imagine that!!!!!
Now I would love to invite you to visit my talented teammates and view their amazing works of art:

Good morning everyone! I finally finished my March Christmas card entries for Hjertebodens Yule Blog.
The challenge this month is to use UTEE. Well, I have never used that product and I had trouble finding it. Needless to say, my first attempt ended in the trash container. After placing it in the freezer, I was happy with the cracks I achieved on the surface because they are subtle.
I am featuring Christmas Tilda on a tag card using papers from BG's Nordic Holiday collection. The sleigh is a Marianne die and the cute berries were a gift from my awesome friend, Danielle.
I made another card featuring Snowflake Tilda. I don't remember what papers I used because I finished this card several weeks ago. The lovely trim and flower were a gift from my sweet friend, Jacque. The snowflakes are a die from Tim Holtz.
The card featuring Homespun Tilda was finished a long time ago, using lovely papers from Webster's Pages.

Good morning everyone! Yes, another book card!!! I wish someday I could actually say that I am "really happy" with the way a card turned out, but thus far, I have never been able to say that.....hope that day will come!!!!
As you can readily see, I used the new Magnolia papers from the Princes and Princesses collection and, of course, Ducky Duck. Tilda with stuffed animal is from last year's Easter collection. The inside is similar to the previous post.
I also made a book card with an adorable Saturated Canary image, "Penelope and Posey". Papers are from We R Memory Keepers "Cotton Tail" collection and the border die is Memory Box.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last posting. You are all much too kind!!!! Love and hugs, Christina

Good Morning and a very happy Friday to everyone. Danielle and I and our talented teammates welcome you to our Inventory Challenge. The theme for today is "Create a Scene". I was requested to make several book cards for Easter, so, of course, I reached for my Easter Tildas. The lovely background and the cute bunny are also Magnolias. I featured all those lovelies on papers from Best Creations.
The inside of the card features Tilda coloring Easter eggs and on the back of the card I colored a basket full of eggs, an Alota stamp.
Now, I enthusiastically invite you to visit my talented teammates and view their amazing creations.
Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it tremendously. Have a fabulous day! Hugs, Christina

Good morning everyone and a very happy Friday.....as your workweek comes to an end, mine is about to begin! We are under another winter weather advisory!
It is time again for another challenge and this week's theme is "Spring"!
Once again, I made a Jacque-inspired card featuring three Magnolia stamps. Tilda is a special edition, colored with copics. The papers I used on this card are from WeR Memory Keepers "Cotton Tails" collection.
The inside of my card features a Memory Box "Spring border" die and Tilda's egg cart.
The ribbon was purchased at Michael's several years ago.
I will also be entering this card in the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and the Deep Ocean Challenge, which both require "spring" themes.
Now, I would love to invite you to visit my friends and teammates and view their amazing works of art:
