Tilda with Nestor the Bull

Hi everyone....wishing you all a fabulous weekend! Well, this is the third try coloring this duo. The first two attempts went into the trash. I'm still not happy with my coloring, but I decided to be brave and post it anyway. I colored this image with Inktense Pencils and the DP is from the new collection. I'm still waiting for my kit to arrive. This is the first time I got my stamps from Diana before I received my kit. I emailed Magnolia/Sweden but haven't heard back yet. Thank you for visiting. Hugs!

Birthday Card

Good Morning to everyone! Gosh, I'm still waiting for my Magnolia Kit so I decided to ink this lovely LOTV stamp I received from a very dear friend. I colored the image with Inktense pencils. This card is for a friend who loves sunflowers and plants them in her garden every year for the birds. Thank you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate your visit. Hugs!

Tilda with her Kookaburra

Thank you so much for visiting! Wishing you all a happy Sunday!! Today, I'd like to share a card I made with one of the Aussie Tildas. I've had her for a long time and never had the chance to use her. She is colored with Inktense pencils and featured on papers from the NitWit Collection called "Bonnets & Bowties", a gift from my dear friend, Claudia.

Welcome Spring

Good afternoon everyone! I am celebrating spring today with another flowery creation. What a beautiful day and it's the first time I was able to hang out the bedding....love it!!!! This beautiful stamp was a gift from a dear friend and I colored it with Inktense pencils. The little yellow dots in the center of the flowers is made with a yellow Souffle pen. The paper is NitWit Collections "Promises", a gift from my lovely friend, Claudia. The rest of the goodies are from my stash. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Big Hugs!

Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by! Today, I'd like to share a card I made with a lovely LOTV stamp. I love lilacs and I have two bushes of French lilacs in my yard, one white and one pink. I hope they did not die due to the extreme cold we had this winter. Well, I'm continuing my coloring with Inktense pencils. I still need to work on backgrounds...not happy with it! I used the lovely Maja Design papers, my very favorite. I think I will give this card to my mother as lilacs are her favorite flowers.

Celebrating Spring

Hi everyone! Well, we had some more snow today, so I wanted to create a card celebrating spring. This lovely Tilda is from the Special Moments Collection and she is colored with Inktense pencils. I'm loving these pencils, but, like everything else, practice makes perfect (if I ever attain that status!). She is showcased on lovely Maja Design papers. Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Christina

Happy Birthday

Good Morning everyone! Well, this is it! The last of my beloved Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue papers....sigh!!!! Today, I'd like to share a birthday card I created for a family member. She is a teacher so I thought this Saturated Canary image is just perfect for her. I colored this cutie with Inktense pencils. Not really happy with it....a little blah!!!!! I'm just still unsure with the bolder colors. Thanks to the wonderful people that still follow my blog. It seems to be dying a slow death since I post on facebook. Wishing you all a fabulous day! Big Hugs!
