Sitting Quietly

I'm sorry I've been soooooo slack with my blog in the last few days. Things have been crazy around here with all the renovations and work and animals and kids........... Ok, I made this quickly today, in between stuff. Coloured Tilda with my copics, and the bee is all sparkly with wire antenae. Did I spell that correctly? Mmmmm, maybe not. See you soon.

Summer Garden

Gee this one was so hard to photograph. I still didnt get it right!!! Well, my friend (Deb) and I had a wonderful playday and made these gorgeous boxes. When you take the lid off it explodes with sparkling butterflys and Tilda sat in the middle. Very fun to make and simply stunning once it is opened. Deb actually found the recipe for the boxes months ago and we just decided to adapt them to "Magnolia Boxes". Ha ha. Go and take a look at Debs AMAZING creation here

Oops Tilda

I had loads of fun making this one. I stamped the oven twice and cut out the kettle, pot, bottle and clock and mounted them with 3d tape. Coloured Oops Tilda (how cute is she???) with my copics,  and voila. Poor Tilda, she dropped her eggs.....

Choccys from my KItchen

Hi everyone. I did this heart box for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. My very talented girlfriend Deb,  helped me print this lovely heart box on her cricut machine as I only have the baby cricut and wanted it to be bigger. I stamped the muffin twice, once on white cardstock and again on patterned paper for the top, put some bling on for the chocolate chips, coloured Tilda with copics,  and now I'm going to fill this with choccys for someone special. Hope you like it.

Wagon Fun

Well, I've only had time for 1 posting in the last few days. My house is full of builders, plaster, and dust!!! I coloured Tilda with copics, did a bit of background building and cut the wagon from my cricut machine. You probably cant see the glitter on the sun, but I glitzed it up a bit with atyou spica pens.
Bye for now.

Fast and Easy

Wow, 2 posts today. I have the builders in renovating my house at the moment, and half of me loves it as I get to dissappear to my craft room every now and then for a quick play, hence the 2 cards I made today. Ok, this is one of the new cuttlebug folders that I bought the other day, and just had to have a play today. Very quick for when your in a rush. I just embossed it, stamped the bird in the middle, coloured with copics of course, popped a couple of the flowers up on 3d foam, glittered them a little, punched the tree and used a fiskars punch for the border. The wording is done by rub ones. 10 minute card!!! Have a lovely weekend.

Dancing Queen

When I first saw this card I thought "wow". It was on "Valita's designs and Fresh Folds" blog. Sorry, I dont yet know how to link it for you, but if you hop on over there you will find her card and tutorial. I thought I'd give it a go and it was surprisingly very easy. I added a few leaves and a flower and gave it to my friend for her birthday. Hope you like it. Thanks Valita.

Australiana Tilda

Hi bloggers. I made this card for a calendar swap with magnolia-licious.  I brayerd the background with kaleidoscope ink, did a little masking  with the trees and houses etc and coloured Farmer Tilda with copics. It was fun and fast to do. My best friend Deb inspired me to do an Australiana scene. Go to her site here: You will simply love her work, She is the cleverest person I know and very inspiring.
