Good morning everyone .....wishing you all a fabulous day. The rain has finally appeared to come to an end in my part of the world.
Danielle and I, as well as the rest of our wonderful teammates, welcome you to our Inventory Challenge. This week the theme is "polka dots".
I featured the lovely Tilda with flower pot, an image provided by my friend, Danielle. She is colored with copics. The papers are BoBunny's Jazmyne Collection, which provide the dots as well as the ribbon. The lovely lace was a gift from Danielle.....thanks, Hon!
I made this card for my hair stylist and good friend, Carla! Thanks for putting up with me for almost 30 years!!!!!
Now I would like to invite you to visit my friends and teammates and view their beautiful creations:
Cathylynn will not be participating for a while. She is going through a rough patch with her mother. We'll miss you, Hon, and our thoughts and love are with you!
Thank you very much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

Good morning everyone! Danielle and I and the rest of our fabulous teammates welcome you to our weekly challenge. This week the theme is bookmark/doorhanger! Well, mine are not very creative....should have done some research to see how it's done!

Good morning everyone....wishing you all a very happy Friday! Danielle and I and our talented teammates invite you to another Inventory Challenge. This week the theme is "Happy Birthday".
I am a great admirer of Camilla's beautiful creations and I love her style, so I attempted to case one of her stunning cards following a little tutorial she had on her blog enhancing her lovely images. She is a master with distress inks. I colored my Tilda with copics. It's not nearly as beautiful as Camilla's, but I'm actually happy with it! You can see Camilla's tutorial HERE.
I used lovely papers by Pion Design and I made a bunch of tags with one of my manila file folders. The beautiful lace was a gift from my sweet and incredibly talented friend, Claudia.
Now I would love to invite you to visit my teammates and view their amazing works of art:

The inside of the card features a Northwoods stamp. I am also entering this card in the STAMP WITH FUN challenge requiring an autumn card.

Good morning everyone...wishing you all a fabulous holiday weekend with family and friends! It's raining today...a good day for napping!
It is time again for my Christmas card entries for the month of September over at Hjertebodens Jule Blogg.
My first card is a wonderful Haenglar image, colored with copics. Papers are from the BG "Jovial" collection and the flowers/leaves are from Prima. The swirls and film strip are from T. Holtz. The inside of the card has pockets holding tags with minis.
My Maggie card features my very favorite Tilda with Violin from last year's Christmas collection. The background is a LaBlanche stamp. Papers are Pion Design.
I colored the entire image with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Finally, I decided to make a tag using another Haenglar image, also colored with copics. Papers are Melissa Frances and the gold dots were a gift from my sweet friend, Danielle. The gorgeous vintage brad and red rick rack was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque. The flower is by Prima and , as you can see, I used lots of gold Stickles.

This particular Cherry Tilda is from the Cozy Family Autumn Collection 2010. The beautiful lace was a gift from my dear friend, Claudia, and the gorgeous ribbon was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque.
The beautiful papers were designed for Inkido by the lovely and mega talented Kristine Moldenhauer Biseth.
Tilda, of course, was colored with copics.
