Tilda With Blowing Hearts and More Treat Cards

Good evening everyone! I managed to create a birthday card for our lovely Haley....a most beautiful and incredibly sweet young lady who will be graduating in spring as a RN. We are very proud of you, Haley, and hope you have a wonderful birthday!
I featured the lovely Tilda with blowing hearts from the Love Collection....she works well for Valentine or birthday cards. She is colored with copics and the papers are all Magnolia. Here is the inside of the card....made a pocket for money or gift card.

Here are the rest of the Christmas treat cards I promised a family member.

The first card is Tilda with Rudolph and the next card is Cocco with Present:

Here is the inside of Cocco with Present

The next card features Winter Tilda

Christmas Treat Cards

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends! I'd like to share several treat cards I made at the request of a family member....four more to go! The first, of course, is Tilda Decorating the Christmas Tree. I really love this cute stamp! She is colored with copics and I used up all my scrap papers for all of my treat cards.

Next, is the Bildmalarna cutie, also colored with copics. The following two cards are vintage. The large Santa was on a postcard I received from a friend and I knew right away that I would be using this on another this gorgeous vintage Santa!!!!

My final treat card features a Vintage Santa on skis.

Valentine for a Boy

Good afternoon everyone.....hope you are enjoying your Sunday! I was requested to make a Valentine card for a boy to give to his teacher, so I went searching for the perfect Edwin and decided that I would feature Heartbreaker Edwin on the front of the card and Rose Edwin on the inside of the card. Both images were colored with copics. Of course, it being a boy's card, I did not want to embellish with flowers, lace or ribbons.....just wanted to keep it simple!

Thank you for visiting my blog........I appreciate your taking the time to visit and truly love it when you leave a comment. Thank you and big hugs, Christina

Happy Valentine and my First Christmas Card for the Year

Hello all my lovely friends! I have a couple of quick posts today, cards I completed a week ago, but just haven't taken the time to post. I created a Valentine card for a friend featuring the lovely Tilda Hiding Heart from the new Love Collection. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from BG's Kissing Booth collection.

The inside of the card is a simple, no-fuss design!

This is my first Christmas card for the year....trying to make at least four a month! The background scene is an Alota stamp and the image is called Christmas Tilda. The inside of this card is also quite simple:

I have not been able to get around to all the blogs and leave comments because I am dealing with pressing family matters right now, but I will be there as soon as I can. Hugs, Christina

Bildmalarna Valentine

Good morning to all my lovely friends! Have you noticed that the Bildmalarnas, like the Magnolias, are getting cuter and cuter all the time?????? I think the new collections are just gorgeous! I just purchased some of the Christmas stamps and also some of the Valentine stamps....looooove 'em!

This lovely image is called the "Shooter" and I colored her with copics and showcased her on Maja Design Papers. The lace and trim are from my stash. The inside of the card is very simple. On the jotting panel, I stamped a heart from the current Magnolia Valentine collection.

I'd like to show you another card I made with a LaBlanche stamp I received from a dear friend. I think it is difficult to focus on the image because of all the foliage surrounding and obscuring a bit of the young man's face. I call it "Young Love" is such a sweet image! I tried stamping it with vintage ink and not coloring it at all, but I did not like that result. I'd really love to know what you think??????

Thank you so much for visiting my humble blog. I so appreciate your support and encouragement. Much love to all of you. Hugs, Christina

Tilda with Little Pocket

Good morning and a very happy Saturday to everyone! I had time to play with another image from the Love Collection and I chose to showcase the lovely Tilda with small pocket. This will be a birthday card for a friend, not a Valentine card. I'm so glad that the Maggies are so versatile since I really don't have much call for Valentine cards. I will be entering this card in the "Anything Goes" challenge at Tilda's Town! Tilda is colored with copics and the papers are from one of my favorite BoBunny collections called "Jazzmine". They were purchased two or three years ago. The pretty corner is a Joy Crafts die.

The inside of the card is very simple.....nothing extravagant! Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit my humble blog. I appreciate it very, very much! Big Hugs, Christina

Tilda's in Love

Good afternoon everyone and a very, very happy New Year! We're going out for dinner today, so I had a little extra time to play with the new Love Collection. This cute Tilda is called "I'm in Love" and I showcased her on the flower cloud, along with some Memory Box cloud die cuts and Magnolia papers. She is colored with copics.

I hope you all had a fantastic New Year's eve and taking time to relax today. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog....I truly love and appreciate your visits. Hugs, Christina
