Tilda Playing Violin

I love, love, love this stamp, compliments of the lovely Diana.  This is the Copic version - soft looking, but I am still going to try it in Distress Inks as well - I really like DI for the very soft, vintage look that appears in the Magnolia Ink magazines.  I found the very last piece of this DP at my friend Sheila's store, The Memory Keeper and thought it would be a perfect background for this stamp.  Now my only problem is giving it away - does anyone else just hate to part with their works of art or am I the only crazy one???  My little grandson is here today, so it is off the computer for me and on to the park for Keegan!!  Have a great day!!

Keegan's Birthday Card

I made this cute little guy into a card for my grandson's third birthday.  Keegan is a little red-head which I have tried to capture in this little fisherman.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:

InLinkz Challenge #1
Friday Sketchers #104

Worked really hard in my garden today and the little guy is coming to spend the day tomorrow, so off to bed for me!!

Play Date Monday!

My friend, Dawn, invited me over for a play-date today to experiment with Distress Inks.  Uh-oh......I'm in trouble!  Really liked the vintage looks that the inks provide........hope they don't come in as many colours as Copics do!  Anyway, here is my first attempt - not bad, not good, but okay.  I'm going to have lots of fun practicing with this medium.  Actually, I think I'll enter this one into Just Magnolia's challenge "One for the Girls.!!"  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Friday Sketchers is celebrating their 2nd Anniversary with a terrific blog hop.  Here is the sketch provided:

Here is a cute little baby card to fit the sketch - my kids have so many friends who are expecting, this card is sure to go in no time!  Also check out Happy Thoughts & Inkspots and Pretty Pressings on the bloghop for a great candy prize.

Just Magnolia It Takes Two Challenge

This week at Just Magnolia the challenge is to use two or more Magnolia stamps on your card.  I made this card for Easter, then couldn't bear to part with it.  Please tell me that I'm not the only one who does this!!!!
Anyway, here is my card using Tilda with Bike and the Spring background stamps.

Stamp Something Birthday Challenge

Just finished this card for my son-in-law last night and along comes Stamp Something with a birthday card challenge.  Good thing Craig doesn't follow blogs - I haven't even given him this card yet!!

Great Big Thanks to Jacque @ Jacque's Joie de Vivre!!!

Just wanted to post a huge message of thanks to Jacque for the wonderful 'sweet stuff' commemorating the First Anniversary of her amazing blog.

I can hardly wait for this prize to hit my mailbox - the mailman won't be safe until it gets here!!  ;o}

Jacque always has the most generous blog candy and her talent is a great source of inspiration for me and many others, I'm sure.
