Deep Ocean Challenge - Song Inspiration

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We had beautiful sunny days, but today has turned cold and windy. I hope our winter does not come too soon.

Alberto from Deep Ocean Challenge asked me to be a Guest Design Team member this week, thanks Alberto.

If you haven't joined them before, they are biweekly, starting on a Tuesday finishing on a Monday.

  I have created my card on the song “Everything's Magic by the Angels”.  I hope you will join in on the fun, pop on over to see all the fabulous creations Design Team have to inspire you.

I have something a little different from my usual adorable Magnolia Stamps, this time I have used Fairy Kira from Tickled Pink Stamps. I fell in love with her when I was a DT for TPS, she is one of my all time faves and I thought she would be perfect for this challenge and song choice.

TOMIC Challenge 44 - Some Bunny Loves You

Happy Easter Everyone,

I am taking time out this long weekend to catch up with family & friends. I know I'll be eating way too much chocolate, I've been taste testing them for days, I'd hate to pass on any that were not perfect to my family & friends bahahahahaha.
I hope whatever you have planned, you all have a wonderful Easter.

It's time for another TOMIC Challenge
The Official Magnolia Inspirations Challenge (TOMIC)

Challenge 44 - Bunny + sketch by Liza + inspiration picture
We want you to use a bunny somewhere on your card (can be a charm, printed paper, stamp, die, etc...), get inspired by this easter picture and use the marvellous sketch by Liza. We also want you to get inspired by the picture (colors, theme, etc...):

I hope you will join us this week, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I have coloured up one of my favourite Easter images, she is from an older collection, I just couldn't resist, she is perfect for baby cards & gifts too.

Happy Monday Everyone,

I am soooooo happy to share my excitement, 
back in January Lucy from Flourish with a Bling
asked me if I would be interested in becoming a Guest DT for them. Of course I jumped at the chance, I love love love all their beautiful embellies.  They are not new to me though, I fell in love with them a long time ago, I use their beautiful flourishes, pearls and rhinestones and have been for sometime. Back when I was a DT for Tickled Pink Stamps the gorgeous Kellie Winnell sent some to me in a wonderful DT pack full of FWAB goodies!!!!!

As you can see I love my bling, most of my projects have either pearls or rhinestones, I find they add that special something.

If you made it to the bottom of my post I thank you.
I know it is a very loooong post, but I wanted to share with you some of FWAB's wonderful products and they have many more fabulous embellies available here with lots of wonderful ideas of how to use them . 

You may have seen some of my projects posted on my blog over the last few weeks, but if not and you want more indepth details, then scroll down to my earlier posts.

A big thank you to Lucy and Maggie from Flourish with a Bling,
I am so honoured be a Guest DT for you.
Have a wonderful week everyone.

Stamping Tilda

Happy Monday Everyone,

Meet Stamping Tilda
She is one of the new special edition stamps from Magnolia
and Flying Angel Tilda - my craftroom angel

This set was made as one of my GDT projects for Flourish with a Bling,  showcasing some of their gorgeous embellishments.

I was lucky to receive this stamp in my DT package from Magnolia. I decided to make a folder to keep Favourite Magnolia Stamps and Stamping Tilda is just perfect.

I stamped her out a few times for some added dimension.
She is coloured with Copic Markers, the background is airbrushed to give even more depth. 
The pencil holder is covered with matching paper and coated with sealer and is a perfect home for Flying Angel Tilda (Guardian Angel) to watch over my craftroom. 
Oops, I forgot to photograph the inside of my folder, it is on it's way to Magnolia Sweden sorry!!

Sally the Monkey - Baby Gift Set

I am loving the new Princes and Princessess Collection.
There is something for everyone.
Babies & Families!!!
Storybook & Medievel Characters!!!
Princes & Princessess!!!

Meet Sally the Monkey
Magnolia's Princes and Princessess Collection
Doohickey - Angel Wings & Vintage Leaves

I was lucky to receive this sweet image Sally the Monkey from Magnolia in my latest DT package. I thought it would be fun to make another gift set, I soooo enjoyed making my Birthday set for Tilda.

I decided to colour Sally the Monkey to look like she is wearing a pink onsie, hope you like it.
 I love the sign she is holding, it comes blank for you to personalise with a name or whatever else you might like, I added new baby as my sentiment.

I tried to get a better angle to show you how half of her is propped up on pop dots to make it look like she is suspended.

A great size to add a baby gift

Debbie P inspired me with her version of this Baby Buggy a while ago, thanks for the inspiration Debbie.

I used Tim Holtz mini paper rosettes for the wheels, giving it a little more support.

Hello Bloggers,

MIA again sorry. Lots happening in January, we nearly lost our little Princess Ruby (2 year old Westie) she's been in intensive care for almost 3 weeks, it appears she was poisoned but thank goodness she is home now lapping up all the attention with lots cuddles and TLC.

Anyways for my card today meet the adorable
Tilda with Peony Tails
from Magnolia's new Crazy Love Collection.  

She is perfect for just about any occasions. I made this to cheer up a friend, hopefully it will brighten her day. I coloured her up with Copics markers and airbrushed the background. I hope you will pop back later in the week and join us for the TOMIC challenge, until then have a wonderful weekend.
