Good morning everyone and a a very happy Friday to all! Brrrrrr...it's a frosty 10 degrees in Wisconsin!! Did someone say "spring"?????
Gosh, where did the week go?? It is time once again for Danielle and I to welcome you to our Inventory Challenge. This week, all the girls decided on "complementary colors" as our theme. I selected blue/orange.
Today, I am showcasing Tilda with Flag from the Apples&Cherries collection, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. Tilda is colored with copics. I also used the new tag die with the heart border available at Magnolia-licious. All the papers are scraps. The orange raffia was a gift from
my sweet friend, Jacque. Thanks Hon!
The inside of the card features a hAnglar jogger, colored with inks. I'm planning to give this card to my great niece who happens to be very active in sports.
I would love to invite you to visit my friend and teammate, Danielle. I'm certain she has something fabulous to show you.
Please continue and visit our other fabulously talented teammates, Charlene, Rene, Sandy and Jean and view their wonderful works of art!

Good morning everyone! My goodness, we had a major, major snowstorm/blizzard in Wisconsin last night and it's still snowing and blowing today!!!!! This was the worst storm of the winter..some drifts are at least 3' or more!!! Hubby is going to be busy today.
I made today's card for Stamp with Fun which simply requires a spring card! Well, since I'm making Easter cards, this card fit the bill. Not quite sure I really like this card....something about it bothers me, but I can't quite put my finger on it!
Has that ever happened to anyone???? It happens a lot to me!!!!
The image is Tilda with Hanging Rabbit, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store.
She was colored with copics. The raffia was a gift from my dear friend, Jacque.
The papers are Pion Design.

I am entering this cute Haenglar girl in the Lovely Haenglars Only challenge. The theme is the color combination red/black/white/gray. I am also entering this card in the Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar Challenge Blog which simply calls for your favorite color combination. Easy......since red and black happens to be my very favorite color combo.
I colored this cutie with copics and placed her on a Nellie Snellen die. I also used a Magnolia lace die and the papers are from My Mind's Eye "Stella Rose" collection. The ribbons are from my stash.
I appreciate your visits so much and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your encouragement. Love and hugs, Christina

Good morning everyone and a very happy Friday to all of you! Today, Danielle and I welcome you to our Inventory Challenge #21 "Spring Colors". This is a very special challenge because we are dedicating it to our very sweet and phenomenally talented friend, ELISE! She is about to undergo surgery and we thought this challenge was so
appropriate for her because spring is all about renewal. We wanted to do something special to raise her spirits and let her know that she will be in our thoughts and in our hearts. GOOD LUCK SWEET GIRL...LOVE YOU!!!!!
I decided to make a round easel card using a Magnolia background from last year's collection. The purple dp is from Fiskars and I used a MS border punch for the flower trim around the nestie. The purple flower was a gift from my dear friend, Jacque and the remainder was a gift from another sweet friend. Thank you so much!
Tilda was colored with copics.
I invite you to visit my dear friend and teammate, Danielle, and view her gorgeous creation and then head on over to our other teammates Charlene, Rene and Jean to view their awesome work.
Thank you so much for visiting and I really appreciate your comments. Hugs to All!

Good morning everyone and a very happy March 1st!! Spring is just around the corner now....yipppeeee!!!! It is time again for the monthly Christmas card submissions at Hjertebodens Yule Blog. The first card features Star Tilda and Lucia Tilda from the 2010 Christmas collection. Both of these cuties are available for purchase at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. The papers I used are from the BG Wassail collection and the swirl is a Tim Holtz die. I used gold Mirro paper for the swirl and it does not photograph very well. The beautiful lace and flowers were from my sweet friend....I thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of me in such a special way!!! Both Tildas are colored with copics.
The second card, of course, is a hAnglar. It features papers by Bo Bunny's Midnight
Frost collection. The trees and border are Marianne dies and the flowers were a gift from my dear sweet friend, Jacque. This sweet image is colored with distress inks.
The final card is another hAnglar, also colored with distress inks. I followed a sketch created by the very talented TINEKE. The papers are designed by Gudrun Loennecken. The lovely gold corner and flowers were a gift from dear Jacque. Love it...thanks so much!!!
I hope you like my submissions. Thank you so very much for visiting. Your support is greatly appreciated. Hugs, Christina
