Tucked Tilda

I can't believe how many blog posts I'm getting done, although I'm not having to boot my laptop up in just getting away with quickies in my phone. Not ideal I know, but it's better than nothing.

I'm entering this cutie into Simply Magnolia's a sketch, where there is a lovely sketch to follow and a great excuse to get another card done.

Once again I've coloured Tilda in with distress inks. I can't believe I've had these inks since last September and I've just mastered the technique (I think) in the last couple of weeks.
The paper is from magnolia, I've distressed all if the edges with vintage photo. I've used a Martha Stewart punch and marianne snowflake dies. The sentiment is from lotv and the ribbon and brad are from wild orchid craft.
Short and sweet again, I've had the morning off to sort my cards, I've got an afternoon of work and I'm going to see the new twilight film with some of the girlies from work tonight.
Take care,

Another Christmas Card

I'm totally getting in top of my cards, and finding challenges to make them for. I'm entering this card into LOTV 'anything goes'.

Again I have to apologise for my photo, my phone doesn't compare to my camera which I've 'tidied' away while we get some stuff sorted.

This sweetie has been coloured in with copics, with lots of glamour dust and twinkles.
Better get back to my inks now, still got lots of cards to do.

Take care,

Let It Snow

Yay, I came in the top 5 in last weeks MDUC challenge. I'll have to get my laptop booted up so I can proudly display my banner.

The challenge at MDUC this week is let it snow. I'm entering this card in it, there are snowflakes on the paper, I've used doohickey snowflakes and a couple of snowflake charms too.

Tilda has been coloured in with distress inks, with subtle sparkle on the flowers. The edges have been distresses with vintage photo ink. My house is upside down at the mo and my camera has been 'tidied' away at the mo so I'm having to use my phone for photos, and they're not the best.
The ribbon and brads are from wild orchid crafts, the sentiment is from lili of the valley and the charms are from eBay.

Have a great week,

MDUC A Sketch

Two posts in one day, this doesn't happen often for me. I'm sorry for the quality of my photos but I've had to use my phone.

I'm entering this into MDUC where there is a sketch to follow. This is my take on it. The snowflake dies are from whimsey, the paper is all from my scrap box.

Once again Tilda is coloured with distress inks. I wonder how soon the next stamp club will come through my letterbox, it's the simple things that keep me happy ;-)

That's it for me,
Take care

The weather outside is frightful

I've had a busy morning in the attic making Christmas cards, and the rain has been lashing against the windows.

Here's one of my creations today.

I'm entering this into Simply Magnolia 'Anything Goes'.
The border and tag dies are magnolia doohickeys. The holly and pine cone are Tim holtz dies.
Tilda has been coloured with distress inks, and I'm starting to get quite happy with it now.
That's it for now, short and sweet.
Take care

Sweet Christmas Dreams

Hi everyone,

I've patiently been practicing with my distress inks and I'm getting quite happy with my results. I know I have a long way to go to get to the standard of some of the people out there, but for me I'm quite happy.

I thought I'd have a play round and I've seen some fantastic cards out in blogland that are shaped, so I thought I'd give it a whirl, something which I will be doing again ;). I've had some cheesecloth in for ages and this is the first time I've plucked up the courage to actually use it.
I was so busy the last few weeks it's on;y the last few days I've had chance to ink up my new Christmas Tilda's, I love them all. I tried to only get a few, but when I was looking through them so see which I should use first I decided I needed some more, oops.

I've used go kreate dies to cut out my card and the other shaped papers. The magnolia papers are also from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams range. Ive coloured Tilda in with distress inks, and have used white acrylic paint round the edges to tone the purple down a tad. Ive used a doohickey snowflake and flowers and lace are from WOC. There is also some subtle glamour dust sparkle added to Tilda.

I'm entering my card into Totally Tilda, 'Christmas with no red, green or blue'. Also, I'm entering it into Just Magnolia & hAnglar stAnglar 'Anything goes, with the option of using pearls and lace', well I got the lace on there.

Take care,
