I colored him with my copics and used Figgy Pudding from Basic Grey as my dp. The card base The sketch is from the JUGS challenge a few weeks ago.
Wow, it was actually their first challenge! Now they're on number nine! My friend, Lisa is one of the talented members of that team! (Waving "hi" to Lisa!)
Thanks for coming by to see what I've been up to! Off to create with my new Magnolia stamps (from Magnolia-licious) now!

I cut the ornament from a medium thickness coaster. I used an Ellison die at school and cut it on the Ellison machine. This weight coaster does not cut with my cuttlebug. I traced, cut and glued some Cosmo Cricket paper onto the chipboard. I sanded the edges and then used distress tea dye ink on the edges followed by some matte accents glue and diamond dust glitter. Tilda is colored with copics and then mounted on dimensionals onto the chipboard. Her wings are sparkled up with Stardust stickles and her dress is painted with Angel Wings shimmerz paint. A few latte colored pearls and some Papertrey ribbon and she's ready for the tree. Very fun and easy to make!

If you haven't been there lately I hope you can check it out. Mo has been very busy lately, and VERY creative, I might add! so many great new images to go with her previous drawings. This one comes with curly hair, too or you can get the boy images!
I used my homespun looking Basic Grey, Nook and Pantry paper to guide my coloring of the little girl's outfit. I used one of my homemade crocheted flowers for embellishment.
I printed the girl out in a smaller size so I could use her on a standard A2 size card, which is my personal favorite. I still had no trouble coloring her.
The colors I used are as follows:
bunny E43, E40 and E37
hair E33, E37 (shoes too)
E000, E01, E93 face and blush
thanks for visiting today! Have a great day!
NOTE colors for Tilda with pie (recent post)
B0000, B41, B21, B23, B18, B69Y0000, Y21, Y32, YR24, E99, E08, YR16, E31, E33

I am struggling with getting my photos where I want them on my laptop so I hope you'll forgive the short post. I'm also on some pain drugs to help with my hip and back pain while they figure out what is causing it. I probably won't even make it through Dancing with the Stars!
Check it out!
And finally, I have a winner of last Monday's card for the Magnolia-licious accessories challenge. My winner is number 38, which is Jan Farnsworth. Jan, could you contact me at DROWLEY6@stny.rr.com

I'm sorry I've been absent a few days. I've continued to organize my craft room and it is coming along nicely! I can actually work in there now! We are having computer issues with the desktop which I use to load my pics and type blog posts. So... now I am completing this task on my laptop! Learning all over again! I've also had some horrible back and hip pain lately so that has slowed me down some. I think it's time to call the dr! I think this will be a Thanksgiving card, but really it could be for any occasion. I used the sunflower bouquet from a recent set by Papertrey Ink and a background paper I found (in my organizing!) made with an older SU background stamp. The dp is Bo Bunny double dots. I colored the image awhile ago, so I'm sorry I don't have the copic colors used this time.
Thanks for coming by! With all that I've mentioned above I've not been around to blogs as much as usual. I hope to do better this week with that! I miss all my inspiration!
Tomorrow I have a Magnolia project for you and I still must pick a winner for the Accessories card last Monday!
Thanks for coming by!

Yep, we're making our cards with accessories ONLY! It's a Magnolia-licious Blog Hop with that "theme" in mind! I cannot wait to see what the other designers have done! I expect the cards will all be so different from each other! If you came here from very talented Sharon Caudle's Blog . If not, you may want to jump back and start at the fabulous Jacque Beddingfield's blog and roll from there!
Here's mine! I used Winter Trees which is a very large stamp of three trees. I love the versatility of it. I stamped it once, colored the trees I wanted and then cut them out to place the way I wanted on my oval. The cute little bird is also from Magnolia-licious and you get TWO of them! this is the smaller version. You will certainly want to head over and see the new Ecommerce store! The opening will look the same, but once you click on Shop, you will love how user friendly Diana has made it!

Today is the 15th of the month and that means another Copic Creations challenge! This time it is "GOLD" I suspect Mary intended the metal gold but I interpreted it as the color gold. Artistic license, I guess! So here is my Golden Bouquet! Now the reason for the mispelling of "Break" is because our generous sponsor for the challenge is "I Brake for Stamps"
Della is the super nice and super speedy owner and she sent us all the images we requested AND she is giving our winner (randomly chosen on the 30th of November) Two sheets of rubbah of their choice! WOW! AND she will add in a third sheet if the winner happens to have used an image from I Brake for Stamps! She has over 3000 images in rubber!
Please see the Copic Creations blog for the other designers FABULOUS creations and some link to tips on coloring GOLD.
For my golden colors I have used shades of Yellow and Yellow Red
Y32, Y17, YR15, Y08, Y38, YR16, YR68, YR0000, E08 and the other colors I chose are; E33, E37, E42, BG10, B0000, YG91, YG93, YG97 and YG99.
Our cats are healthy one year olds and vaccinated after our visit to the vet yesterday. There was a woman there who was crying and about to put her sick older pet to rest. I know all too well the emotions she was feeling and I'm sure many of you do as well. Remember to appreciate the furry family members today and give them a hug (or an extra treat!).
See you tomorrow for the Magnolia-licious blog hop!

This is one of my favorite winter Tildas and I have used her often. Diana has her in the store now and you can also see some other cards made with her at Magnolia-licious. There is a huge inventory of Magnolia stamps at great prices!

I printed him onto Neenah Classic crest white in a small size so I could put him on a regular A2 size card. The dp is from Cosmo Cricket awhile back. The sentiment is handwritten (yes, in blue pen! What was I thinking?!) and punched out with the SU small oval punch. buttons are from Papertrey Ink.
I think I could use this for a late birthday card or just for fun! I know my sister might appreciate it because she went through this with her son a long time ago! She could laugh about it now!
thanks so very much for visiting! I love reading your comments and appreciate each one.
Have a great Saturday!

My card base is Kraft card stock and the dp is from a small pad by DCWV that I got at JoAnn's. I love the rich colors and teal with red and green! Oh, my, it's great! I used some SU snowflakes from a couple of different sets and there's lot of SU glitter on his tree. (I just couldn't get a good picture this morning!)
The tag is cut from cardboard on my cuttlebug with a Sizzix die that has three sizes of tags. I just sponged the edges with distress ink.
My card is 5X 5". Colors are listed below.
Note to Jenn-thanks for asking about the snowflakes. I don't know how to contact you, so I will look for Anna Wight's post on how to make them and post it here as soon as I get the chance! 'kay?
Have a great Thursday!!
