Autumn Love and Friends!



A quick little Happy Friday post. I'm looking forward to the weekend, besides Halloween, I'm going furniture shopping. Actually nothing major but some new lamps and entertainment center.



I've had this little pair sitting on my craft table all week. I didn't have ribbon to match and last night was my first chance out to get some. I love this sweet Magnolia image from the Cozy Autumn collection. I colored them in distress inks and followed a new to me challenge blog sketch, Stempeleinmaliens. Hope you enjoy! Have a safe Halloween!

This week I have Double DT fun to share! Truly Scrumptious has a great Sketch and option of Petals Pearls and Pins. I made my last Halloween card for the season and Jolly Rodger Tilda is dressed for some Trick or Treating. My girls just told me that they want to dress just like her. Hmmm....something for Magnolia to think about...Halloween costumes! LOL!!


Tilda is colored in Distress Inks. My flower is actually from a bunch of silk flowers from Michael's for under a $1 , I love little treasure finds.

Then hop over to The Pixie Cottage Challenge for another great Sketch with the option of metal. This was a really fun card to create, first because isn't that the cutest bear you have ever seen?! He looks like he is having a ball! Second because I made this an acetate card. I think it adds a great touch to this since it's almost ice like. Here comes Winter can be found here.

Pixie Cottage Challenge #41

This week The Pixie Cottage has a fantastic sketch and the option of something sweet. Instead of food, because it's diet time. I decided on the sweet smell of roses. This was my first time I ever colored a Rose, I was pleased with the outcome. I hope you are too.


Isn't it a beautiful rose. It's Simply the Best, and you can find her here. She is colored in Copic markers which I am still a novice in too. BUT I am always up for a challenge...LOL!



This card will be going in the mail to my sister, Emely. Last Monday she went for Quad bypass Surgery and I am happy to say she did great! She's home and already on the phone being the big sister that she is telling me to eat right! I hope she will be allowed to travel in December and we will be together for the holidays. Until then, the girls and I miss her.



Challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown: Anything Goes
Paper Cutz: Anything Goes
Stamping Vacation: Clear as Mud- No Spiders
Craftalicious: Anything goes

Fall Tilda

I LOVE this card! I love the rich colors, the cool flower, the snazzy stitching! LOL!!! I colored Tilda in Distress inks and I was inspired by a challenge that came and went but the colors are to gorgeous! This little Tilda is one of the older ones and I can't remember her name to save my life but when I saw her during blog hopping I knew I had to have her.


OFF Topic...how many of you have a cat that wants to love on you when you a trying to post pictures and blog?!! I'm typing through fur!


Okay well I just love this weeks Just Magnolia Sketch and I tried my hand again at stitching AND in a circle for all things! See my cool flower...I didn't make it. I was over my friend Tracy's and she had one done that matched perfectly. Thanks Tracy! She also has a quick and easy tutorial on how to make it here.

Hope you like!

Truly Scrumptious Challenge #42

It's Wednesday and here we are again with another fun sketch with the option of creating an easel card. I love easel cards, well I guess you can see that since my last few have been easels...lol!

This week we are being sponsored by Robin's Fetish and the digital I used is called "In the Cold". SO...rumor has it the Red is a hard color to play with in Copics and me with so much experience in Copics (NOT!!!) decided to take on the challenge. I'm happy with the way it turned out. It was a little scary though.




Please stop by and join us at Truly Scrumptious in these next two weeks. Our DT has some beautiful inspiration and I would love to see yours!

EDIT: Oops forgot to add my challenges

Paper Sundaes: Change of Season
Craftalicious: Anything Goes

Happy Boo!



Just a quick little card for Halloween, isn't Froggy Halloween the cutest?! bIt's a Digi and can be found over at The Pixie Cottage here. It's this month's digi of the month. My favorite thing about Digi's is that you can resize them. I had printed this a larger and it didn't quite look right for this card, so I started over again! I know for some of you this is old hat but I have only dived into the digi world recently and wow! LOVE THEM!! I don't feel like I am cheating anymore...LOL!

Oh and did you see the stitching?...Don't look to close, it's not perfect but I did it!! Yeah me! I really can't sew but I'm practicing! When I started out with this card I figured a little bit crooked wouldn't be to noticable on a Halloween card, it adds to the overall effect!...That's my story and I am sticking to it!! Hope you like!

Load of challenges I am entering:

Cupcake Craft: Halloween
Wild Orchids: Stitching
Shabby Tea Room: Pumpkin in image
Papertake Weekly: 3 of a kind (DP,buttons)
Simon Says Stamp: Halloween
Fab n Funky: Use a Digi

Getting Ready for Christmas

Wow! Can you believe how close we are to Christmas? I don't even want to count the days. It seems like right after Halloween it just comes so fast.


I love Christmas though, I love the looks on my daughters faces when I start pulling out all the decoration for inside and outside. We have little traditions in our home, making cookies, family tree decorating and driving the neighborhood looking at other homes beautifully decorated. Oooo...I'm all excited now! How long til Christmas? I can't wait! LOL!


I follow some amazing blogs and the cutest easel card was posted here. Iris' card was a Halloween card but I have to give this unique easel a try. It's a little tricky but worth it! I've had Sneaky Tilda and Tilda with gifts colored for about two weeks. I wanted so much to put them together on a card and had already matched them to the new Bo Bunny paper. I LOVE Bo Bunny paper. We finally have a new Scrapbook shoppe in town and she's carrying it! I'm so excited to have someone local now. Anyway back to Tilda, they remind me of my girls so I colored them with my daughters in mind. My oldest Bianca has dark brown hair and Lexy is a my crazy red head. I love the way this turned out! I hope you do too!

Challenges I'm entering:
Pollycraft Challenge: Anything Goes
Stamp Something: Punches,Dies
The Secret Crafter: Distress used to color images

TADA!!!

Introducing my first Pixie Cottage DT post!! I'm very excited to be a part of the design team, they are a group of amazing talent. Come on by and join us for this week's challenge. Its a sketch challenge with the added option of embossing. I was so excited in putting this card together that I forgot the embossing part, oops!

Isn't this little bear the cutest bear you have ever seen? He is so loving that cupcake! He was one of many gorgeous stamps that arrived in my package and I had to ink him up. You can find him here.


I was thinking a my dearest stamping friend Tracy when I colored him. First because she is an amazing with her Copics and second because she loves cupcakes! I have a rusty hand with my Copics and I ask her for tons of advice all the time.

Thanks for joining me on my first DT post, now head on over and join our challenge and let me see all your amazing work! I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Lisette
