Edwin wants Hugs and Kisses

WOW! We are already at the end of January! Is it me or did this month just fly by too? In a little over two weeks it will be Valentines. I already have my Sweets for my sweets, no worries there. But I do have some colored images that I better hurry up and get into a card before the holiday is gone! LOL!!

Some men can wear Pink and some can't. Edwin can! I really love the way he came out with his pink shirt and red vest. I will be teaching this card at The Scrapbook Store and more on February 9th for Magnolia Night. If you are in the area, come on in!! What do you think of those big smooches? It was not me...maybe Tilda {giggle}. The paper is from Bo Bunny Enchanted Collection, GORGEOUS!!

Well I hope your Valentines will be filled with Hugs and Kisses and I hope you enjoy my Edwin.

Did you ever as a kid count all the firsts when the New Year arrived? My sister and I would. I find my kids doing it and I laugh. I wonder why we do that??? Then I started creating my card and I said to myself. "This is my first distress card for the new year." LOL!!

I'm stretching out my distress inks legs with Rose Scented Tilda. Something else made me smile as I was coloring her, all the "Rose" songs and poems that were out there. WOW!! How many can you think of? I would love to hear which was the first one that came to your mind, please leave a comment.

My first....The Rose by Bette Midler.

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed
It's the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love, in the spring
Becomes the rose

It has nothing to do with my sweet birthday card but that's what stuck in my head!! Hope you enjoy my FIRST Distress Ink card for 2012 and ROSE scented Tilda.

I Love You!

Hmmm Sunday...I need more Sundays. Though this Sunday I spent part of my day driving to the airport. The last of the holiday travelers, my uncle came home today. I have to say, listening to him talk to my mom about people and places from up north made me miss it for a moment.....then I looked down at my shorts and t-shirt and I knew that I wouldn't be wearing this today if I were there!

To say that I love this new Sweet Crazy Love collection is an under statement. I have been having a great time coloring. I missed my maggies! I just noticed that it had been a while (before my last three posts) that I haven't post the "dolls" as my daughter puts it. I hope you don't get to tired of these I have a few more to play with....LOL!!!

A Wrapped Gift

I just have all kinds of Sweet Crazy Love for this new Magnolia Collection! The last few months of 2011 were way to hectic for me. Stamping and coloring were so far out of reach at the time. It feels awesome to be able to sit and color. It feels like home.

Did anyone make any crafty resolutions?? I sort of did...first, make it to CHA!!! I wish I was going this month but I guess I will just have to wait for the Summer. I have a few buddies going that I hope totally keep me in the loop!! I have a couple more resolutions but I can't remember them right now, LOL!! Well there goes that!

You're Invited!

Hello!! You are invited to join me on January 12th at The Scrapbook Store and More where I will be teaching Magnolia night. I can't wait to see my lovely ladies that join me every month. I missed them all during my holiday break.

Isn't Tilda with Love letter adorable?! I have a curly top little girl of my own and when I saw this it just reminded me of her soooo much. I even colored her hair red just like her AND her favorite color is purple!! This party invitation is too soon but this year my red head turns 10!! I will officially have two in double digits now! {sniff sniff} Back to Tilda...

Too Early? Hope not!!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great new year. I did. We played with the new Wii my munchkins got for Christmas with my parents. It was hilarious, my parents have never played and it was so much fun just watching them bowl and sing karaoke!

Now I am just hours away from the end of my vacation. Total Bummer!! My munchkins are feeling it too. They go back to school tomorrow too. We are both counting the days for Spring Break now! LOL!!

So is it too early for a Valentine's Day Card? I have to tell you by the time Christmas arrived I couldn't do another Christmas card. I soooo Love Christmas but I was so ready to play with something new. I was over the top excited when my new Sweet Crazy Love Magnolia Collection arrived! Last night I finally sat down to play and just couldn't resist Wild Tilda and just had to color her in pink. Too cute!!

Hope you think so too. I'm looking forward to 2012. I'm near 200 followers and I have some truly sweet candy coming soon to celebrate!
