Colored with Inktense pencils and I added one of the new sentiments from the Christmas Wishes set also to be released.  You can see I added the Grunge Christmas Postmarks.
 
Next stop is my very talented friend Elise and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there.

Magnolia-licious Challenge


Hey y'all!! I wanted to do something a little different for this Magnolia-licious Challenge.  We're not using Tilda for this challenge, but using animals or accessories on your cards.  I have made a burlap canvas for my project.


I colored up the "Tilda and Edwin Tours".  I used a stencil with modeling past for the backgrounds and added a few metal pieces. 



I hope you will join this challenge, it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with when you can't use cutie Tilda!  Magnolia-licous has a huge selection of accessory stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Friday!

Hello and a very Happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I can honestly say that I'm excited that we don't HAVE to do anything this weekend.  We have moved kids the past few weekends and I am ready for a relaxing time with hubby!

My card today is using the adorable Tilda With Scarlet the Pig, it is from the Animals of the Year Collection at Magnolia-licious!  I have colored her with Inktense Pencils again.


So here's a few of the supplies I used:  Magnolia Doohickeys: Lovely Fence, Sweet Lovely Lace, and Peonies. Memory Box: Magic Flourish.  I also used some fun stuff from The Ribbon Girl: The pink lace and pearl trim. Paper is from Lili of the Valley: Shabby Shack and Simply Sophisticated Sentiment.  Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Don't you love this sweet collection?  I love all the cute animals!

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Dena

Wee Wednesday Post

Today I want to share with you a cute little stamp from Wild Rose Studio that I got at Diana's store, Magnolia-licious.  This is called Bella With Flowers.

I decided to color a little bit different and use some Windsor and Newton watercolors. 


The papers are some very old Papermania - Blueberry Hill.  The colors worked great for me.  I used some gorgeous lace a friend bought me and sewed around all the edges. Done!  Gotta love the little elephant huh?!

Be sure to check out the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for more inspiration using some of the stores various stamps!

Thank you for visiting!!!
