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.

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 http://www.james-ee.blogspot.com/

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.

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.

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.

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: http://www.james-ee.blogspot.com/ You will simply love her work, She is the cleverest person I know and very inspiring.
