Mountain Lily

Good Morning Peeps!

Here I am again :o)

Today it is Wee Wednesday

This is my first go for Wee Wednesday.
I hope you like my card.

This very sweet image is called
Mountain Lily,
you can find her right HERE
DIANA has a wonderful selection of 
WEE STAMPS in her store

* Don't forget one random winner
will receive a wonderful gift package
Just leave comments during the week
on all blog posts and DT Blogs.
You may be the lucky winner. *

On to my card.

Here is the front:

I coloured with Copic's as always.

I used Spellbinders Scalloped Circles,
Magnolia trees and a few flowers I happened
to have that were the right colour.
After I had everything together I sprayed
the whole card with Glitter Mist, in both
Marshmallow and Iridescent Gold.
First time I have tried this,
I thought since she is an Angel
she should be all glittered up!
Before that I glittered her
wings real good!
I used Crystal Lacquer and Clear Glitter Ritz.

My Card Stock is from SU
Really Rust and Old Olive.
The Design Paper is from
Raspberry Road.

More pics for you :

Thank you ever so much for looking today!

I look forward to your comments
so much :o)

See you again soon.

Tilda and her Bunny

Good Morning Friends,

I sure hope most of you are
finally experiencing Spring Weather!

This time our CHALLENGE is:
Spring is in the Air

You may wonder why I choose an
Easter Image?
When I was a young girl
we had two weeks off
for Spring Break. Easter
fell during that time.
The weather was always
sunny and warm by then.
My brother and I always received
new clothes on Easter for
Church and then to wear to school
after that. I can remember lovely
dresses, very light sweaters, new white
cotton gloves and new shoes.
What a thrill it was LOL


Please remember to follow the new rules :o)
To enter our Challenge: you must use
either a Magnolia image or a Wee image.

You can win a fabulous gift package
from lovely DIANA
If you comment on either our BLOG,

galore at DIANA'S STORE

she buys from Diana you will 
receive a 5% discount on
a purchase of your own!!

Now my card for today :o)

I have used "Tilda and Her Bunny" #363
from The Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.
You bet she is in the store ready
for you to purchase right here!!

My Design Paper is from:
Raspberry Road Cottage Collection
and Basket Collection. 
My card stock is from Stampin'Up:
Vanilla and Barely Banana.
I have coloured with Copics.
The Vintage Easter Card is from Crafty Secrets.
The edges on my card have been distressed
with my scissors and then
they have all been inked with
Tim Holtz Antique Linen.
The corners are from Stampin'Up Punch.
I used Glitter Ritz in Pink, Green and Blue
for the bunnies but you can't really tell
which colour is which :o(

Good Morning Everyone,

We are having our first BLOG HOP
of 2013 today!

If you came from
CATHY LEE'S blog you are in the right order.
If you just stumbled here you will
want to start at the beginning which is

Our challenge is:

This was a real hard one for me,
as I can't get to stores to buy anything to make!

I had one large candle at my house,
so I decided that had to be it :o)

The candle is 6" in diameter.
Therefore 12" around.
It is white.

So I gathered paper and my image,
# 3001
She can be found HERE in DIANA'S STORE. I also
used : sentiment - BEST EASTERWISHES #754 same place.

I have used only card stock no design paper.
The paper is all from Stamping Up
Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink,
and Bashful Blue.

I cut a a 3" strip of yellow paper
and added a wonderful boarder from
Magnolia Doohickey.
I placed large pearsl from my stash on the top
and bottom of the boarder at certain places.

Tilda is the focal point of the decoration.
but I added hand made flowers
to her left and right.

I added large pearls to the centre of each
large flower and a tiny rhinestone in
each tiny flower.

This is the right side of the candle:

Here is the left side:

And a close up so you can see the pearls and rhinestones

Here is a close up of Tilda:

If you decide to decorate
a candle this way, make sure
that you take OFF the decoration
while burning the candle!!!!!

I have made mine tight enough to stay on the candle
and lose enough to be able to pull it off.

* I have learned that I should have
taken a picture of the whole thing
while it was laying down before
adding it to my candle *
My apologies.


I hope you are having fun with the BLOG HOP.
If you are following in order 
you should go to  JANIEL  next.

See you soon,
Love, Candy

Mini Monday

Good Morning Friends,

Better Picture!

We had a couple of sunny days,
but the rain is back.
Sure hope where ever you live
the weather is getting more Spring like.


By now you all know that Diana is
hosting 'Mini Mondays'

Today Cabio, Suzi and I
have the pleasure of making cards for you.

These cute images are sure to make you
smile no matter which one you use.

My card this time is:
'Farewell Tilda'
and I have also
used a mini called 'Front Doorstep'
from  Alotta Mini Stamps.
I stamped Tilda first then covered her
to stamp the stairway over top.

I must apologize for the state of my photos!
My house is so dark it is very hard to take good shots.
I tried something different this time
and I think it turned out worse.
So I won't do this again.

As you see I made a round card this time.
I used Spellbinders Grand Circle, 3rd size.
and regular size Spellbinders circles with holes.
Other dies I used are:
Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirl
and some older flower punches I have.
This one is called 'Sakura'

Close up:

Side and top flowers with Seam Binding:

My card is distressed with
SU - Crumb cake.
DP are from Magnolia -
'Yummy for your Tummy'.
Clear flowers and pearls are from my stash
and Seam Binding is from - 
Ribbon Girl.

Here is the inside of my card:

I thought the soft colour paper
would be fine for writing the
message on. It is sure to be seen.

No Copic list this time - sorry. 
I used so many I didn't keep track :o(

See you tomorrow for the
Magnolia and Wee stamp Challenge.

Thank you for your wonderful 
comments. They make my day :o)

Love, Candy

I made the Airplane from my new
Cameo Silhouette.
I cut the plane out 3 times in different
colours and then made a 3D image of it.
I also used Tim Holtz Antique Linen to
distress it all over.

The inside isn't fancy. Here is the left:

I had this little airplane button in my stash
and thought it was cute.
