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!!!

Ahoy! Pirate Card - Magnolia

This is one of the cards published in the Fairy tale Spring Edition 2010 of Magnolia Ink.

I know that is a long time ago....but I recently realized I haven't posted it on my blog.

Here is a list of the stamps I've used on this card...All from Magnolia of course!!

LZ09 Ocean Bakground - VA07 Sjorovar banner2 - VA07 Edwin som pirat - VA07 Edwins Doskalle - S007 Skepp - HV08 Stock.

The images are colored with copics (base only), prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's to deepen the shade.

The ocean background stamp is simply overstamped with the pirate ship. The flowers, leaves and cord are from Magnolia. Edwin is glued to the log...and attached to the front corner with foam dimensionals.

Take Care Everyone...and Have a Great day!!
