play the game

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a really lovely Christmas. I am still enjoying some P&Q!

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge is to feature a QUOTE in your project.

Today I have a sporty Magnolia to share with you. I'm not really into sports images usually, but I am really loving this set.

I have used papers by Glitz Design ~ Love Nest and Scarlett, together with a Love Games ~ Whatnot and Peek-A-Boo. LOL. Love these words.

I've used Magnolia ~ Karate Tilda and coloured her with my copics. 

Layered up some lace & doilies & flowers to finish off.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:

roses for you

Today at Cupcake Craft Challenges we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow:

This is our last challenge before we break for the holidays.

Papers: Glitz Design ~ Laced with Grace.

I used a lot of eyelets! Although unintentionally. I had originally planned to just add eyelets horizontally, but after merrily punching away at the holes, realised I had punched them along the wrong edge. Dohh!! Anyway. I still like it like this.

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda in the Garden coloured with copics and of course added some stickles.

I used a Tim Holtz ~ Scallop die along the edge of the paper Tilda is standing on.

Thank you for looking.

snowman love

Hello! Today is my 2nd and final GDT spot at ABC Challenge where the challenge this week is F for Frosty.

I decided to decorate a kraft bag in a frosty, snowy theme and pop in a little book to match.

Here is the front of each.
Papers: Fancy Pants ~ Tradition.

I've used the Tim Holtz ~ Sizzix ~ Winter Wonder die to cut the snowman and the Tim Holtz ~ Sizzix ~ Love die to cut the word out.
I've smeared frosty stickles over the snowman on the front of the book.

I've decorated a little kraft tag and added that to the bag.
Here are the backs of the bag and the book.

The bag from the top.

every day

Today at Cupcake Craft Challenges we have a theme of: don't look at the light, so we want to see lots of sparkly stuff!

Here is my piece.
Papers and layered stickers: My Mind's Eye ~ Lost & Found Two: Sunshine papers.

Image: Gillian Roberts ~ Teenage Love. I coloured them with copics and added some stickles.

I misted the flowers with glimmer mist and added some gold stickles to them also.

25th Silver Wedding Anniversary

I am so excited to tell you that I have been chosen as guest designer for ABC Challenge for the month of December! Thank you so much for choosing me!

So for the next two weeks, the challenge is E for embossing. Well there is a fair bit of embossing on this card!

I made this card for a 25th Wedding Anniversary. There is lots of molten silver!

I have used all Magnolia papers, mainly from the Something Old, Something New collection and embossed the edges with silver.

The images are Magnolia ~ Sitting Wedding Tilda and Sitting Wedding Edwin, coloured with copics and stickles.

I have used part of the Magnolia ~ Wedding Rose Arch bench as a background, which I embossed with silver.

For the tag I used a magnolia doo hickey die added some molten silver and embellished the numbers '25' with silver embossing too.

And finally, the inside, which I decorated. 

I am entering this in at Cute Card Thursday - Just a Number.

Thank you for looking.
