Karaoke Tilda

Good morning and a very happy Wednesday.......hope your week is going well!
I made this card for two challenges: Just Magnolia, utilizing the wonderful sketch by the
unbelievably talented Bev and Stamp with Fun, where the theme this week is "birthday".
I used papers by Anna Griffin, flowers from Prima and Magnolia and my favorite flourish die by Tim Holtz. Ribbons from Raspberry Ribbons and MS pearls. Tilda is from the new wedding collection and she is colored with copics.
Thanks so much for visiting. Hugs, Christina
P.S. It's a beautiful day and I will be taking my "Buddy" for a nice long walk in the woods.
I'm also taking care of my granddog.......don't have any grandchildren, just granddogs!!!!

Family Portrait

Hello everyone...hoping you are all having a fantastic weekend!
I made this card for the Magnolia Ink challenge calling for a family portrait using Magnolia stamps. Well, here is what I came up with.......not exactly up to the high standards of Magnolia, but it was fun to do! Don't think I will be sending it in!!!!!
The German Edwin, of course, is my husband, who is always ready for a party and beer! Had to clip his wings, though, because he is not an angel, close..... but not quite!!!! hahahaha
I'm the cook, of course and our dog Buddy is also represented. The lesser known Martha is my 90 year old mother. She probably wishes she had that much hair! Our humble Magnolia home is in the background.
Thank you for visiting. Hugs, Christina
