Sweet Friend Birthday

Hello Dear Readers!  I hope everything is good on your side of the screen.

Today is the start of a fun new challenge at Tilda's Town and the theme is USE YOUR STASH.  I can honestly say that the majority of the products I've used on this card have been hanging out in my craft room for at least a year.  Only some of the markers might be newer.

This is 60's Tilda hanging out on some Tin Boxes, enjoying her swirly sucker.  Both stamps are from the 2009 Magnolia A Little Yummy collection.  I've colored them up with my Copic Markers and used Distress Inks to accent everything else.

Here is a side view to show dimension.  This is my first try at making these swirly flowers and I like them so much that I added them to the other card I posted a little earlier today.

Here are the Copic colors I used - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair:  E29, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37  Dress: RV00, RV52, RV55  Blue Tin: B0000, B000, B00, B02, C1, C3  Yellow Tin: Y21, Y26, YR30  Silver Tin: C1, C3, C5  Cookies: E35, E37, E53

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment.  (I really do appreciate them).  A special Thank You to my blog followers.  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows!

Happy Easter Chicky!

Hello Dear Readers!  I hope you're having a wonderful day so far and all is good on your side of the screen.  I'm going to make this as short and sweet as possible as my world is in it's usual state of chaos.

This week's MarkerPOP challenge is EASTER and the prize is two lovely 6 x 6 paper packs by Echo Park.  The challenge runs until Noon CST, Sunday, April 5th.  A big congrats to the winner of the C. C. Designs Grunge Envelopes Die prize from my first MarkerPOP post; Sue Gadbois.  


Here is the very sweet Tilda with Egg and Chicken from the 2013 Magnolia Little Easter collection.  As per usual, I have colored her up with Copic Markers and accented all of my die cuts with Distress Inks.  Said die cuts, as well as a complete list of all materials used can be found in the supplies section at the bottom of this post.


Here is a side view to show some depth.  I've tried out these spiral flowers and enjoyed making them so much, I've put them on both cards that I'm posting today.  They came out a much deeper pink in the picture than they are in person.  Hmm....

Special Occasion - Birthday

Happy Saturday Lovely Friends!  

Today is the start of a new challenge at the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Special Occasions.  I just had to do a birthday card since my little sister's birthday is in just a few days.

Isn't this design just too cute?!?  Here we have Tilda with Balloon from the 2011 You're So Special collection , Edwin in Miami from the Summer Memories 2012 collection, Congratulation Tilda, also from the 2011 You're So Special collection and Christmas Party Tilda from the 2009 So Jolly collection.  All are gathered to celebrate.  I've colored them all with Copic Markers and left the design simple so that when it's open, everything looks simple and festive.

The little gift box holds the candles to stow away until the birthday person opens the card and the cake can be fully decorated.

Copic Markers Used - Faces: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R20  Purple Dress: V20, V22, V25  Her Hair: E30, E32, E33, E35, E37, E29  Edwin's Outfit: B0000, B00, B02  His Hair: E70, E74, E79  Pink Dress: R30, R32, R35, R37, R39  Her Hair: Y21, YR24, E39  Aqua Dress: BG0000, BG10, BG13, BG49  Her Hair: E08, E18, E19, E39  Shorts, Shoes & Trims: E40, E43, E44  Floor: E53, E55, E57, E59

A True Classic

Hello AGAIN My Crafty Friends!  

I know!  I know!  Two posts from me in one day is COMPLETELY unheard of but I hope you can get used to it because it will be happening on a regular basis.  ;)

I made this card for my father-in-law's 85th birthday.  We're going to celebrate with dinner out at a restaurant of his choice.  He's already griping because us non-birthday attendees are paying for his dinner and he's arguing that he can pay for his own dinner.  Sigh!

Here I've used the Edwin's Oldsmobile and Barbed Wire Background stamps from the Magnolia 2012 Summer Memories collection.  I've colored them with my Copic Markers (of course) and did the clouds and edges with Distress Inks.  The Happy Birthday dies are from Cheery Lynn.

I'm hoping to show from this angle that I used Diamond Glaze to make the windshield and headlamps look like glass.  My father-in-law was born and raised in Illinois and so I Googled license plates from that year and state and made this one to look like them, black with white lettering and trim.  My husband told me that he remembers his dad owning a blue Oldsmobile back in the 60's.

Here is another angle to show that I made the car with 5 layers.

Copic Markers - Car: B0000, B000, B00, B01, B02, E08, E13, E18, E19, W1, W3, 0  Chrome: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Fence: E42, E43, E44, E47, C3  Ground: E31, E74, E79, W1, W3  Grass: YG95, YG97, G94, G99  Flowers: V05, V06, V09  Butterflies: Y38, YR31, E18

Happy Today!

Happy Saturday My Crafting and Blogging Friends!  I hope all is well on your end and your weekend is off to a good start.

I have for you today, my Tilda's Town Design Team inspiration make for our newest challenge and our theme for this week is YOUR FAVORITE SEASONMy favorite season is Autumn.  When I lived in the Midwest, I didn't have a favorite and I looked forward to each new glorious season.  Now that I live in the Desert Southwest, I look forward to the temperatures dropping below 100 degrees, the approach of the Holiday Season and my mom coming for her annual visit.  After that it just gets hot again.  :p


Here is Tilda With Carrots from the 2012 Turning Leaves collection.  I've paired her up with the Spring Fence from the 2010 Happy Easter collection and colored them with Copic Markers.

What do you think of these leaves?  I was inspired to do some watercoloring after visiting all of the blogs participating in the recent SSS blog hop.  Wow, those ladies are talented!


Here is a side view to give you an idea of the depth of the leaves and such.  See that acorn in there?  That was supposed to be a focal point, but I ended up covering it for the most part.  The lace was one of those happy accidents from a while back.  I was dying it for a project and it came out way too dark so I tossed it in a drawer.  It went perfectly with this project (at least until I covered it up too).


The purpley/blue color on my clock is another happy accident.  I wanted to bring out a deeper brown and put cracks in it by embossing it with ultra thick embossing enamel.  I didn't realize that I grabbed the one that tinted blue but am happy that I did.


Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E02, E11, R20  Hair: E33, E35, E37, E50  Shirt: BG0000, BG10, BG13, BG49  Pants: B32, B34, B38, W1  Boots: YR21, YR24, Y28  Gloves & Kerchief: R81, R83, R85, R89  Carrots: YR04, YR07, Y21  Beets; R56, R59, E2  Fence & Basket: E29, E31, E33, E37  Grass & Greens: YG17, YG25, YG67, YG95, E87, R14

All other supplies are listed at the bottom of this post.

You Make My Heart Soar

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day is filled with lots of love...and flowers...and chocolate...  :D

Today starts off a new challenge at the Tilda's Town challenge blog and our theme this week is Anything Goes with optional Bling.  As always, Tilda's Town is offering up a lovely prize for our winner.

This little cutie is Sweet Tilda With Balloon from the 2014 Animal Of The Year Collection.  I know there aren't 99 balloons, but that song has been in my head the whole time and was actually the inspiration for my card.  My "bling" is the glittery word "Valentine" that I cut using my Cricut and coated with Xmas Red Stickles.

The Eiffel Tower and the leaves are Sizzix dies.  The border punch is Martha Stewart.  Since I don't have a corner punch to match, I mitered the corners.  The Balloons were punched with miscellaneous punches that are so old, they don't have manufacturer names on them.

Copic Markers:  Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R01, R20  Hair: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44  Outfit: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Balloons & Lace Collar: R20, R22, R24, R29, R59

Here is the inside...

Lots of great dies and stamps can be found at

PS   I had to show you what my wonderful husband and best friend of 25 years gave me for Valentines Day.  (Apparently, Copic markers grow like flowers somewhere).
This was such a happy surprise after such a crappy Friday the 13th.  I got photo bombed at an intersection after being stuck in a jam for 30 minutes, I nicked the bumper of my truck on a shopping cart corral, I dropped a brand new bottle of probiotics, which resulted in me having to move several large kitchen appliances to retrieve them, and I forgot to take the recycle bin to the curb.  UGH!
