TGIF Everyone :o)

Hi ~ I hope you are all enjoying your Friday afternoon and looking forward to your weekend.

I have another quick post for you. This is a little Tilda that I haven't seen anyone else on the Magnolia group use before.

I have used DCWW paper stacks for this one. Both Grade School Pack and Glitter Pack. Diamond glaze for her glasses, stickles for her wings and a bit in her hair, red ribbon from Gina K and a small silver charm from my stash.

Thanks for taking a peak!!
See you soon,
Love Candy

Just a very quick post

Hi everyone,
I have a very quick post this afternoon. I am in the middle of a bunch of things.
I have made a card for a family member in hospital.
Thought little Wasabi Ketto looked like spring today.
She is from Bella - shopping spot is on the right side of my blog.

Thanks for looking - I will be back soon with two more Magnolia Cards.
Hope you are all well.
Love Candy

Hi Friends!

Hope you all had a nice weekend. It has been raining most of the time where I live, but at least that means it is warming up and spring can't be far away!

Just a quick post this afternoon to show you a very quiet Easter Card.

This is made with a new Magnolia image that I received last week: Tilda with Chicks.

Recipe: Design paper Making Memories - flower patch ( I used the other side of this double sided paper ). Colouring is done with Copics. Stickles: Yellow, Antique Linen and Star Dust in very small quantities. Bella baubles in tourquois - 4; and SU paper : So Saffron, Tempting Tourquois, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.

Hello - hello - hello !!!!!!!!


It has been a frustrating exersize trying to get my blog to work again and I hope that I have finally done so! It has taken two weeks of hour upon hour of work for me since I have no experience with computers at all!!!!!!

I would like to post a few cards today and I am so happy to be back :o)

The first card is another Birthday Card for a friend. The stamp is from Bella and is called 'poppy BITTYBLOOM' I used Basic Grey - Urban Prairie / bountiful as my DP; and matching SU paper for the rest of it.
I used S'U dazzling diamonds; and ribbon and crystals from Michaels. I also used my Fiskars border punch, and acriylic white paint.

Here is a close up:

And the inside:

The verse:

The next card is a Sympathy one:

This card uses Whisper White, Gray and black cardstock from Stampin' Up. I stamped the top half of the card with one of my background stamps in dark gray, used some of the gray paper and put through my cuttlebug embossing folder. They were mounted on the black and I used the ribbon to mask the place where they joined. The cross and all other stamps including the sentiment are from 'Papertrey Ink'. I again used a couple of crystals from Michaels.

Here is the inside:

The next card is a Mingle made for Magnolia-licious. The theme was to take a NON - Easter image and make it into an Easter Card. All of my fine plans for this one went out the window when I couldn't find the things I wanted to use. I had to use old things in my stash and make do. I hope it looks Easter enough to fit the challenge???

You may have to look real close to see what is going on!

Here are a couple of close ups:

And of course the inside:

Thank you all for haning in there with me while my blog was out of order. I hope to be back with you on a regular basis now.

new cards

Here are some pics as promised. Enjoy

Hi everyone! Thanks for hanging in there with me during this time of problems with my blog! I have managed with the help of a friend to get these pictures of my latest Magnolia card entered.

This is a sketch challenge at the Magnolia-licious group, for the month of March.
I had fun doing this one and love Edwin with his tulips.
The design paper is from Imaginsce and is called 'Tiptoe Through Tulips.
all the plain paper is from Stampin'Up and as you can see I have used several 1/2 pearls. There is actually a pearl in the bottom left corner behind the arm of my holder. I used Ranger Distress Ink on the oval behind Edwin.

A card - finally :o)

I made this card Tuesday I think and have been trying to post it ever since.

I have been wanting to make a round card for a very long time. Unfortunately I don't have a large round cutter and only have the small Nesties. So this was the only way I had of doing it. I look forward to being able to make a bigger one very soon. I hope the size doesn't take away from the love put into making it.

Hello everyone!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything!

Part of that reason is because I took a week off from card making and redid my craft room. What a huge job that was! We have lived here for 2 1/2 years and this is the third time I have done it. This time I am very happy with the results. It has given me more free room in the middle of the room and narrower storage places so the room seems a lot bigger. Now my work table no longer has my computer and printer on it and I actually have the whole table to work on instead of the aprox. 16" by 12" I was working on before!

The second reason is because my blog has not been working. I have no idea why not. This will be my 4th try at loading pictures. That is the part that isn't working.

I am going to sign off this part now so you at lease know I am alive. Then will write again immediately to try to post my photos. If you don't find any - then it still isn't working and I will need some help from someone????

Thanks for coming - Love Candy
