Advent Calendar and Photos!!

I made this little matchbox calendar for my little granddaughter....Ellie. It is filled with Santa chocolates...foil wrapped Teddy Grahams and little Hershey chocolate bars. I used this tutorial to make this project. Thanks for the great tutorial Tanja
 I don't normally add faces to my magnolia's but Ellie knows all about noses, eyes and ears..ect. I thought it would be a good idea to add them for her.
 Here is a photo of  Buddy and Chewbacca (my sons fur kid). See that evil look?? suits his name..LOL.
Last but definitely not least!! a photo of our Sweet grand daughter Ellie. I thought it was perfect to include at the end. She is 17 months in the photo. She's a real firecracker... into everything and we just Love Her 2Bits!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season...Take Care Everyone!!

Happy Easter!!

I've had this little Easter Tilda for ages and just finally inked her up. I am entering this card in the Magnolia-licious Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest

The stamp (full size) I used is called HE10 Hello! Tilda from the 2010 Hoppy Easter Collection. The sentiment is computer generated.

I've colored the image with distress inks and h20's. Ink - Versafine. Papers - watercolor, GP, Bazill, Crate, Michael's. Accessories - lace, ribbon, button, charm, acrylic paint, stickles.

I've used the sketch from One Crazy Stampers March Challenge. Of course I am late...but that's okay...I just really liked the sketch!.....Happy Spring!!!
