Magnolia-licious DT White Cards

Good morning my dears, I hope you are all well and happy, I'm here to remind you that you still have time to join us over at 


in our White Card theme challenge.  I've kept my card very simple.
I've used sweet Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda and coloured her with ShinHanArt markers and added glamour dust to her dress.

I've used white card and my A4 embossing folder which came with my Ebosser, inking the edges with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distressing ink. Tilda is stamped on a spellbinders circle nestability and then placed onto the Royal Circle Nestability.  Once again both have been inked around the edges.

I used the Doohickey Vol 2 club kit Poinsettia die, inked the edges and added some flat back pearls to the centre.

My roses ribbon trim is from Live and Love crafts. 
Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Midweek Magnolias DT #101 Glitter/Lace/Pearls Midway Reminder

Good morning my dears,  I'm here today to remind you that there is still another week to enter our current challenge over at 

Our theme is Glitter/Lace/Pearls.  

I've recycled an old chocolate box and created a card to compliment it.  I chose Angel Tilda with Gloria as my image and I must confess this is the first time I've inked her up!!!!  so she is making her debut today!!  I've coloured her using Copics and Derwent pencilsoft pencils this time. 

My papers are from a very old Anna Griffiths scrapbook collection. The flowers are made using Heartfelt Creations Vintage morning background stamp & a matching die.  I used my McGills tool kit to shape them, adding gesso paint to the tips and dipping them into Glamour dust for the sparkle.  I even made my own candy for the large flowers using my embossing tool. 


Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you had a pleasant stay and found a little inspiration.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Say it with Flowers gift basket.

Good morning my dears,  I so fell in love with the first picnic basket I made a few days ago that I thought I'd make a few more.

This one is using some of my new Spellbinder dies and Heartfelt Creations Papers, flower stamps, dies and tool kit.  Isn't it pretty!!!  well I think so anyway and I think once it's filled with pretty gift items the recipient will treasure it.

I added small magnets to the lid flaps so they stay closed.  I think I'm going to be making quite a few of these for Christmas, Birthday's, Easter and just any occasion gifts. 

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope I've inspired you a little and do please come back and see me soon.
