Bildmalerna Christmas

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends! I just received this adorable Bildmalerna stamp in the mail the other day and, of course, I had to make a card with it. I think the new Bildmalerna Christmas collection is many darling images to play with! The image is showcased on the new Maja Papers "It's Christmas Time" those papers! The tree is a Memory Box die and the lovey bells and sleigh are from Marianne Creatables. I colored the image with copics.

The inside of the card is quite simple. As you can see, I stamped the sentiment right onto the designer paper.

Forest Tilda

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends....hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

I created a card showcasing Forest Tilda. My friend, Danielle, told me the other day that this Tilda reminds her of my daughter and I would have to agree! My daughter spends most of her time in the forest....for work and pleasure! She and her husband go hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing, camping, etc. etc. They both enjoy and respect their environment. As a matter of fact, she had long blond braids for a very long time while in primary school.

Tilda is colored with copics. Papers are from Magnolia, as well as the fence die. The clouds are a Memory Box die.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your continued support. I appreciate it sincerely. Hugs, Christina

Tilda with Rudolph.....Once Again!

Greetings to everyone! I wanted to make another simple, easy to mail card featuring this adorable Tilda with Rudolph. I just love this precious image. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from Magnolia. The lovely corner die is from Joy Crafts. As I look at this card, something is definitely!!!!! However, as I stated, I wanted a few cards for overseas that are less cumbersome to mail.

I will be taking part in Tilda's Town challenge this week where the theme is "Merry Christmas". Thank you so much for visiting my humble blog. I appreciate your visits so much. Thank you!

Tilda with Rudolph

OMG....I had a horrific experience today! My husband and I took our shepherd, Buddy, for a walk. When we approached our neighbor who lives approximately 1/2 mile north of us, I noticed all their hunting dogs out and they were all running towards us (about 12 dogs)!!!!! I knew immediately that this was going to get very BAD. This menacing posse was after my dog and all my husband was able to do is hold on to our dog. I screamed and started kicking my legs in every direction to protect Buddy. I saw the owner come running, but she only managed to get a few dogs away from us, leaving the worst ones for me to fight off! OMG......this was something out of a horror movie. I just screamed and kicked and cried, determined to save my Buddy. Every once in a while, one got to him and I heard him squeal. She finally came back to round up the three that were terrorizing us and managed to get them home. Let me tell you, I cried all the way home. Thank goodness that I decided to go along today because normally I don't walk on the weekends because I'm usually too tired after working all night.

Well, the neighbor called and she was crying too. She felt very bad and wanted to be sure that we are all OK. I checked Buddy out and there was no blood, but he was a little touchy on the back flank.

Not much to say about my is a simple design using the adorable Tilda with Rudolph from the current Christmas collection. She is showcased on Pion Design papers and colored with copics.

Say it with Chocolate

Good morning and a very happy weekend to all! Gosh, I haven't been feeling very inspired lately and my back went out a few days ago simply by taping this lovely lady onto the base of the card...unbelievable!!!! I did, however, manage to finish this birthday treat card for my son.

I purchased 6 bars of assorted chocolate for making Christmas treat cards for friends and I proceeded to hide them from hubby, as he cannot have sweets. Well, I hid them so well that I cannot find them!!!!! Looked everywhere....nothing! He swears that he did not eat them! LOL Soooo, I took one bar from an already finished Christmas card and inserted it into my son's birthday card.

I wanted to make this card sleek and simple, but sexy, and not girlie. Well, I think I kind of defeated that purpose by using pink papers and ribbon. I find it incredibly challenging to make male cards. This beautiful Saturated Canary image is colored with copics and showcased on papers from Glitz's "Pretty in Pink" collection.

Thank you for visiting my humble blog. I truly appreciate your visits. Hugs!

Christmas Scene

Good afternoon everyone! Well, hubby is out of town, so I have a little extra time to craft. My mother and I will be eating leftovers for the next couple of days! I created this card for the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Challenge Blog which has an easy theme this week...."Anything Goes with Fabric".

The trees in the background are Magnolia and, of course, the two darling minis are Haenglars. The corner die is from Memory Box and Rudolph is a Marianne die. Notice the red Stickle nose....hahahaha!!! The papers are from my scrap pile.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog....your continued visits and support are truly appreciated. Big Hugs, Christina

October Christmas Entries for Hjertebodens

Good morning everyone....wishing you all a very happy Friday! It's time again for my entries to Hjertebodens Jule Blogg. This month, the assignment is to make a card with "Threes"....sooo, I added 3 pearls, 3 snowflakes, 3 stars and 3 DPs. I used my lovely papers from Inkido to showcase Pixie Tilda, Jasper (the cat) and the Snowy Roof from the current Christmas collection.

My next card features Edwin with Sack and he is showcased on papers from BoBunny's Midnight Frost Collection, which is one of my favorite collections of all time!!!!!

My final creation is vintage. I also used a T. Holtz snowflake die for this. It's also a good way to use up leftover scraps of paper.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I appreciate it so much. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Hugs!

LOTV Buddies

Good evening everyone! This adorable stamp was a gift from a sweet friend....just love it! Problem is that I'm really not good at coloring animals. It's something I will have to work on when I have more time in my life! I colored this adorable duo with copics and showcased them on scraps of paper and whatever else I could find in my stash.

Thank you so very much for your visits to my humble blog. I appreciate it so much. Have a wonderful evening and I hope you will all be watching the Presidential Debate tonight. Love and hugs, Christina
