Editor Tilda

Good morning to all the Magnolia lovers out there! Wishing you all a fabulous weekend! Both my email accounts were inaccessible due to technical difficulties yesterday, so I had a little time to play. I decided to make a card featuring this cute Editor Tilda with the Sunny Morning background, both from the Turning Leaves collection. The sentiment is also from Magnolia. Everything is colored with copics. The papers came from my scrap pile and the flowers from WOC.

I will be entering this card in the Totally Tilda Challenge #51 requiring a Tilda and a Magnolia sentiment.

A Walk in the Woods

Wishing everyone a very happy Sunday! It is HOT, HOT, HOT in my part of the world. I finally got some much-needed sleep today....OMG...I feel human again!!!

I'd like to share a card with you that I worked on yesterday. I am entering it in TILDA'S TOWN where "anything goes" this week and in JUST MAGNOLIA AND HANGLAR & STANGLAR CHALLENGE BLOG where they want to see a birthday card this week. Tilda and Walter the Moose are from the current Turning Leaves Collection and the owl is from a much older collection.....don't know which one. All images are colored with copics and the papers are from a T. Holtz collection. The tree dies are Just Magnolia and Marianne Creatables and the lovely flowers are from WOC. I think I got a little carried away with the embellishments....hahahha!!!!

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my blog. I appreciate your support. Much love, Christina

Tilda in Ballet Shoes.....another version!

Good morning to all the Maggie lovers out there! Today, I'd like to share a card I have been working on which was totally inspired by a blogger I recently discovered, thanks to a dear wonderful friend. This girl is incredibly talented and I especially fell in love with the way she colored Summer Flower Tilda. You can find her blog HERE. You are in for a treat!!!

I decided to try the coloring on Tilda in ballet shoes. It is nowhere near as beautiful as hers, but I gave it my best shot. All the papers are from my scrap pile.
Thank you for visiting my humble blog. I appreciate your taking a few minutes out of your busy day to visit. Big Hugs, Christina

Miss Tilda in Ballet Shoes

Good morning everyone! I've been wanting to ink this sweet Tilda for a long time now and finally got to play with this adorable stamp from the Princes and Princesses 2012 Collection. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from MF's C'est La Vie collection. The flowers and ribbons are from WOC and the corners around Tilda are made with my Stempelglede stamp set.
Thank you for visiting my blog and a special note of gratitude for all the lovely comments on my last post. Thank you so are the GREATEST! Hugs, Christina

My Favorite Tilda

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends....hope you are having a fabulous day! The challenge this week at Tilda's Town is to create a card with your favorite Tilda. Are you kidding???????????????? Just about every Tilda I own is a "favorite"!!! Soooo, I made a card with my most recent favorite, Swedish Tilda, from the Summer Memories 1012 Collection. I adore this cute image and I hope I'm doing her justice!!!! I colored her with copics and I am featuring her on Magnolia papers and the backdrop is a lovely Marianne Creatables die. The clouds are a Memory Box die.
If you would like to check out a tutorial on how to make parts of the image stick out from the diecut, you will find a brilliant version on the incredibly talented Elizabeth's site. Her work is spectacular.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I truly appreciate your encouragement and support. Big Hugs, Christina

July Entries to Hjertebodens Jule Blog

I've been working diligently on my Christmas cards for the month of July for Hjertebodens Jule Blog I am featuring a lovely Haenglar girl on papers from BG's Nordic Holiday Collection. This cutie is colored with copics.

The requirement this month is to create a shaker card, so I am also featuring a Haenglar on my shaker card. I haven't made a shaker card in years and, unfortunately, I used too many microbeads for the filler, covering up too much of the image! This sweet Haenglar is also colored with copics and showcased on Maja Design "Vintage Winter" papers.

My final card is a gatefold card inspired by the incredibly talented NORMA. All the Magnolia images are from the 2008 Christmas Collection and featured on fabulous papers from Maja Design called "Vintage Winter". The window is a Small Poppystamps Madison Window die. I really goofed up on this card....I bet that never happened to Norma!!!! LOL!!!! When I placed the Santa in front of the window with mounting tape, I forgot that the tape will show on the inside of the window as I open the panel. Well, I tried to fix it with greenery to cover up the mistake. It's not a great fix, but it will have to do.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Your support is greatly appreciated. Wishing you a happy and productive week!!! So glad I still have my Internet!!! Big Hugs, Christina

Tilda's Birthday Gift

Good afternoon everyone and a very happy July 4th! The heat is so oppressive today, it's not safe to be outside, so I spent some time in my craft room. I really love tags, so I decided to make a tag with the new Tilda from the current kit. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from Prima's "Romantique" collection. You will note a Magnolia butterfly, swirl and fence on my card. The banner is from Poppystamps.
I will be entering my tag in the following challenges: Tilda's Town "Time to Celebrate" and Just Magnolia and Haenglar & Staenglar Challenge blog which calls for "banners".

Thank you for visiting my blog......I appreciate and thank you for your support. Hugs, Christina
