Saturday Evening and another post :o)

Hi again!! Hope you have all had a wonderful day? Here I am posting again.
This one is a far cry from earlier today's card..........This is bright and bold and
I hope OK!

I have used a Whipper Snapper Image and sentiment. DP : Basic Grey - Lime Rickey. Stampin'Up card stock: Only Orange,Yoho Yellow and Green Galore. I have also used 4 of my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and of course my Copics. That's it with this one.

Have a look and see what you think.....

Oh I don't think you can see the bottom blue arrow here you go -

here is a close up of the sentiment -

And here is a close up of the DINO...... LOL

I hope you get a kick out of this card. Many thanks for looking.
This is another one for "The Town Scrapper"

Today I am showing you a sweet little card that I made yesterday.
This is Chloe from Whipper Snapper :o)
I have used Imaginisce DP called Baby Powder/ Rosy Cheeks - both sides. The card stock is SU: Very Vanilla and Pixie Pink. I have also used Nestabilities Peony - large size *3 times. Sheer pink ribbon from ???? - small hat pin I added the silver heart charm with LOVE on it. Because this is for a little one I cut the sharp end off the hat pin and glued the bottom onto it so it won't come off. Two sizes of pearls were used and they are from Michaels. I coloured as usual with Copics but only used a very few colours.

Here she is:

The bow has five loops on each side:

Here is a close up of Chloe:

I hope you like her.........I am working on another card so hopefully will get it posted later today or tomorrow morning.

THANK YOU!!!!! to each of you who left me a message about my stamp for the back of my cards.

I knew I shouldn't put my phone number on it - but I did - and you all told me to get rid of it and I have.
Not only off my post - but off my stamp as well.
Love Candy :o)

Long time no see..........

Hi everyone!

Lots going on here and it has been difficult for me to make cards.

I did make one for my son, Shawn and his family to welcome them to their new home this Friday and then I forgot to take pictures of it. I was in a big hurry to get it on it's way........

Anyway, tonight I have made another card for 'The Town Scrapper' This is another CC Rubber Stamp image called ' Sea Shell Trevor ', he is so cute!!! I have used design paper that Phebe sent me and I coupled it with Turquoise blue and white card stock. I used my Nestibilities label One set - the largest die, and stamped little Trevor right on it. The sun is a stamp from Magnolia and it was stamped coloured and cut out and then mounted with dimensionals. The sentiment is from CC designs as well and was cut out with my punch and then a blue one was cut and mounted behind it.
This time I only added a few seed beads to the sand and two sea shells, and of course, Trevor's sun glasses that he has just dropped on the sand in his excitement to find these extra large sea shells.
All colouring was done with my Copics. I made a navy knot - or sea knot with some Macrame cord and attached a metal shell to it.

Here is Trevor at the sea shore:

I took a couple more close up pictures for you:

and :

This last little picture is for my dear friend Deb to check out as well as the rest of you. I don't have the money to have a special stamp designed for me - so I made this one up myself for the back of my cards. If any of you have a comment about it - I would love to hear it. Please let me know what you think. Too much information - not enough - the wrong kind???

Thank you all so much for coming to visit and giving me your advice! Hope to see you sooner rather than later next time :o)

A Special Birthday Card - Gorjuss

Good Evening Everybody!

We have cloud cover today and had a couple of raindrops but that was all and it is SO HUMID!! It is the heat that is making me feel lousy! Thank you to all of you who told me to get better soon - you are so kind :o)

Today I made a Birthday Card for my new Daughter-In-Law! She will be 24 ....sounds so good doesn't it?

The DP I used was Cloud 9 Designs - Sunrise Dots and the other side of it as well - plain blue; and I also used Imaginisce - Fairest of them all and the other side called Sweet Satin Ribbons. I used
SU Card Stock - Pink Pirouette and Certain Celery. From my stash I used 2 sizes of white pearls, white satin ribbon, a large brad that says Celebrate, Sterling Silver Jewelry spacers, and Crystal Lacquer for the rain drops. The stamped image is a Lovely Gorjuss Girl :o)

Here is the front of the card:

and a close up of the image:

Thought you might like to see the flower up close:

Of course the inside of the card:

A closer look at the right side:

Can you tell I got a new 'Just Rite Stamper'?? LOL

Hope you enjoy my new card. Thank you so much for visiting me all the time - I LOVE IT :o)

Tilda takes a vacation......


Give Phebe a call or email and let her know what you would like :o)

Well Tilda is real tired of the city in all this heat and decided that now is a great time for a vacation. She is going to take the bus into the country with the hope of cooling off and just do nothing for a couple of weeks!!! I would love to join her how about you?? The only trouble is the bus is taking forever to get long does she have to wait?????
The DP is American Crafts - The colour of Memories. Card stock is SU Summer Sun and Taken with Teal. I used parts of the Magnolia stamp - 'summer background'. The grassy hill I made myself. Other stamps are 'Traveller Tilda' and 'Magnolia Suitcases'. I coloured with Copics, and did a tiny bit of paper piecing on her blouse and purse.

Here she is waiting for the bus!!

Here is a closer look at tired and flustered Tilda with her pink cheeks:

Here you can see her sitting on one of her suitcases:

Here is the inside of the card:
Sure hope that bus comes soon. It is getting late and I don't want Tilda out in the dark.......
Hoping you all have a great week!

Happy Thursday to All

Hi Everyone!

One more day to the weekend. Bet everyone is looking forward to it! We are still very nice and hot here. Hope the rest of you have good weather.

Today I made a summer Tilda card. I used Creative Imaginations DP. Card stock is from SU : Whisper White, Summer Sun and Pacific Point. Ribbon from Michaels. Flip Flop from my stash.
Paper Flip Flops made with EK Success Punch. Behind Tilda I have sponged a very very soft blue and yellow near the horizon line - I don't know if it will show up in the picture. Of course I have used Diamond Glitter on Tilda's wings.

Here she is:

Here is a close up of my little flip flop:

A close up of poor sun burnt Tilda:

And of course the inside:

I hope you have liked my card. A short post tonight as I am very tired and feeling a bit dizzy for some reason this evening.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog. Please leave me some comments as I love to hear from you all :o)

Happy Monday evening!!

Hi there friends!



I made another card this evening with a really sweet image from 'The Greeting Farm'. These images are available at 'The Town Scrapper.I had so much fun colouring the image cause they are large with happy faces!

I used Imaginisce DP - white and pink card stock. Imaginise Ribbon from Phebe as well!
I used my two largest oval Nestibilties both in plain and in scalloped. A large yellow heart button from my stash. Pearls from my stash. Fiskars Border Punch and of course I coloured with my Copics.

Here is my first picture:

Don't you think she is a doll?

Here is a close up of the side panel. I was able to thread the ribbon through the button and tie a bow.

Here is a close up of my little friend with her pearl button. It matches the pearls on each corner of the main card:

This was a really fun card to make. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

STAY TUNED ~ Lots more cards coming.

Have a great week everyone. Thanks so much for visiting me :o)

***I also must tell you that Phebe has been chosen to sell the new stamps that are out called:
"MOTIVET"!!!! ***
Have you heard of them? Have you seen them???

WELL I just happen to have one made into a card for you today to see.....

I fell in love with this little nurse LOL! She reminded me of long ago nursery stories when I was a young girl - we won't go into details of when that was LOL LOL

So I did the card up so it would look a bit old and used.
The DP is Basic Grey : Bittersweet
Matching red card stock - Off white card stock.
I used my Coluzzle to cut the image with because I only have the small oval Nestibilities :o(
I copied the definition of NURSE out of an old dictionary and typed it on off white Card Stock in brown ink. Then I set up to destroy it to look old; using my scissors, tearing it, wrinkling it all up, sanding, and then using brown ink to touch it up here and there and then dropping some alcohol ink on it - I used Tim Holtz Ranger products.
Copics were used to colour the image and I used crystal lacquer on her shoes.

Here she is :

and. yes the definition is on crooked on purpose.

Here is a closer look:

Here she is up close:

I sure hope you have enjoyed this little card today. Be sure to get in touch with Phebe at the

Happy Thursday to you All.......


I made this card yesterday and had no time to get it on my blog - hard to believe isn't it?

This is the new Sketch Challenge on Magnolia-licious this month. Kerry Donovan-Casey is the gal who made this pretty sketch.

I decided to test myself a bit and made a card out of what to me are weird colours. I hope I did it justice LOL It was fun but you know how you feel when you try something different?

My DP came from a 6 x 6 DCWV Glitter Stack Pad. I love anything that glitters LOL
I used cardstock from SU called Creamy Caramel, Pink Passion, and Whisper White.
Buttons are from my stash and rhinestones from my stash as well and were NOT STICKY....oh boy!
Of course I coloured with Copics.

Here is my card - I hope you like it Kerry!

Funny colours?? I think so - in a way LOL

Here is another:

Oh Boy! I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of the inside!!! Ask me if it is HOT?? You bet - over 90 - and my head isn't working............
I just used the striped paper that is on the front and placed it on some more of the pink and put it on each side. The bright colours seemed to be enough already LOL LOL

Thanks so much for taking a peek at this one. Have a great day tomorrow - it's FRIDAY.

Hi there - It is late Monday Evening at my house!!

Hi there, we have had another scorcher of a day here. I hope most of the rest of you are getting nice hot summer weather by now??

Here is one more card for the 'Town Scrapper". Tomorrow the five of them are going postal to Phebe. I hope she likes these ones!! More will be on their way in a week or two.

Just before I talk about the card I want to let you all know that Phebe will ship goods anywhere in Canada ( We will have to ask about USA ) She carries many lines of stamps : Magnolia, My Favourite Things; Whipper Snapper, Hanna, High Hopes, Whiff of Joy, CC Designs and has just got the rights to a brand new line. You should hop on over and get the low down! She also carries Design Paper : Imaginisce, Basic Grey, MME, and Paper Make Up. She also sells Nestibilities and a bunch more wonderful things...............
The main image is a Whiff of Joy Stamp from their Summer 2009 Collection, the sentiment is from a previous selection of theirs. The Butterfly Grass and the butterfly are from the Magnolia Spring Butterfly Collection - 2009.


I always like to show more detailed images if I can. So I got a couple more a little closer:

And here is the last one a bit closer yet:
