Magnolia Tissue Box - Paper Sundaes/Sent. Sundays DT

Sorry I am late, late, late!!! I went away for the Holiday weekend and expected to be back on Saturday afternoon. Thought I could make up my post and catch up on all of my commenting. However, we were having such a great time in Sarasota, that we decided to stay another day and i JUST got home. So I literally have 5 mins (hubs is breathing down my back for the computer) so thought I would hop on and get my post up!!!

Today I used a magnolia image on another Tissue Box Cover. I love these things!!  Sentimental Sundays challenge this week is a Recipe (3 Dp's, 3 Buttons and Ribbon) while Paper Sundaes is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp...and you need to "Adorn those corners". So here is what I came up with today....

I colored up Tilda with Coat using Copic Markers, the paper is from My Minds Eye and Close to my heart. The ribbon is close to my heart. The sentiment is from Catslife Press.  I downloaded the instructions on the Tissue box from Splitcoast.  The snowflake is an ornament that I found at the dollar store.

Like I said, this is a SHORT post today, I will hop on later to update and add links to everything. Sorry!!

KWIM? So I am requesting that you become a follower, if you are not one already. 2nd, please put this post in your sidebar of your blog, or make a post about it. Either is fine. Last - leave you name in inklinkz on below this post. That's it.


Here is what you're getting:

2 Magnolia Stamps
1 C.C Design Stamp
4 unmounted stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie
Wood mounted Thank You Monkey (can't think of the brand and I am tooooooo lazy to go look lol)

K&Company Daisys
1 pack Prima Flowers
1 Alterable Purse
1 "Family" Alterable album from Bo Bunny

Warm Thank you - Snowy Hug Tilda

Happy Saturday!  I am so happy to be able to post a Tilda today!  I have been so busy working on cards for DT's (which I equally love) that I haven't gotten an opportunity to make a card using a Maggie.  Last night I had an awesome workshop with 8 ladies. It turned out great. The projects, if I do say so myself, were really great. The food was equally good. I tried out a new dip, Baked Sweet Onion Dip, Oh my...we were ALL surprised at how DeLish it was! So good, you can find the recipe at Tasty Kitchen. If you havent been to Tasty Kitchen, it's one of my favorites for finding great recipes. Ree of the Pioneer Woman put together Tasty Kitchen and I would advise you to check out her blog. It's Fantastic...hands down my favorite for cooking, photography and other little things.

So back to my card you can find this little cute Snowy Tilda over at Magnolia-Licous store, she is out of stock right now, but I am sure she will be back in soon!

I colored Snowy Hugs Tilda with Copic marker and Prisma Color pencils. The papers are a mixture of My Minds Eye and Close to My Heart. They just happened to go very well together, IMO. I punched out the snowflakes from some Martha Stewart punches and added some Liquid Applique, heated them up to get the puffiness. Then added stickles for some sparkle and some rhinestones for some Bling, bling!
The sentiment was computer generated by myself. I added a border around it with a Just-Rite border stamp. I used Flower Soft for the snow. Sewed up all the edges with my handy lil' sewing machine and Voila!  Super Cute Card...IMO! 

I have BLOG CANDY ending hop on over and put your name in Mr Inklinz. Also, I am only 2 followers away from 200, which means out of all the entries, there's going to be a second drawing for another little sweet surprise!  So check it out here - 

Well thats all for today. Check back tomorrow, I have 2 super cute cards to post for Sentimental Sundays and Paper Sundaes

Challenges -

7 Kids - Thank you
Simon Says - Sparkle

Hugs and happy Saturday to ya,

Magnolia - Tissue Boxes

Oh my!!! I feel like its been forever since I have done a post! Esp. with my beloved magnolias!! I have been so busy with thing the last few weeks. This week I have been busy putting together a workshop that I am having on Friday at my house. They are so much work, sometimes I ask myself WHY???   One of things we are making are Tissue Box covers. They are so adorable. So my daughter saw one and she immediately said she wanted one for her teacher...and her teacher last year. I said, "ok...they're $5 bucks each" she said...ok, then ran into her room. I hear her, is $9 dollars ok?? I said sure. So she came out and counted out 9 bucks and 75 cents...too funny. Of course, I didn't take her money!! But it was cute that she was willing to pay some big bucks for them!

Edwin with lights is colored with Copic Markers.  Sneaky Tilda is colored with Distress Inks.  You can pick up both of these stamps  from the Magnolia-licous store HERE. The seal is from Catslife Press.  All the papers are from Close to my Heart. The ribbon is also Close to my Heart.  You can't really see it in the pictures but I added stickles to the Seals and to the lights and present.  I got the tutorial from Splitcoast. It's super easy, especially if you have a Scor-Pal  (who Magnolia-licous's very own, Diana Crick created!!) It's fabulous!

Well it is getting late and I am beat! Don't forget to check out my BLOG CANDY!! It closes this Saturday!!!!!!!! It was for my 100th follower, but somehow I have managed to pick up 88 more followers since I posted it 3 weeks ago. So....if I end up hitting 200, I'm going to do another drawing for something else! ;-)  Also, if the linky isn't working right...(sorry my first time using it) just let me know in the comments. I am going to go in order and assign numbers so everybody is included!! :-)

Belles n Whistles Cutie... Paper Sundaes/ Senti. Sundays DT

Happy Sunday Morning!! Over at Paper Sundaes DT this weeks challenge is sponsored by Belles n Whistles and you have to use any 2 - blue, embossing, ribbon or punches. This little cutie is called Lil' Miss Poppy.

I colored Lil' Miss Poppy with Copic Markers. The Frame is a from the new line of Spellebinders - lacey squares. The butterflies are punched from a Martha Stewart punch. The papers are from my stash as well as the ribbon. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Ok so I made another card for Sentimental Sundays but I totally hated it! I was't use that one. I don't know what it was...just wasn't diggin' it. So, with VERY little time to create I kinda cheated! ooopps! The theme was Childhood and I went and added a little Sentiment which I was going to do to begin with and combine, but got a bright Idea to do 2 separate ones! LOL  So here is the same card with Sentiment added.

 The sentiment is from Just-Rite!

Creative Belli- Old, New , Borrowed, BLUE!
Fresh Brewed - 2 or more patterned papers

Thanks for looking and Happy Sunday!

Btw, did you see what the AWESOME Prize is??? $25.00 gift certificate to the Magnolia-Licious Store!!! Pretty Sweet!

I have colored Baby Tilda with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Close to my heart. The papers are some old DP's from when my daughter was a baby! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I hope you join us over at Magnolia-licous in the Challenge. Be sure to check out Dianas store, she always has great specials and if she doesn't have it stock you can bet it will be soon. Just ask!

If you haven't done of their challenges, you should! There is usually a theme, you have to use a sentiment and the best part. FREEBIE sentiments! Yes, every week, there is a free set of sentiments for you to download and use. How cool is that. Next, I also got picked to be on the Paper Sundaes DT! Yeah Me! The Paper Sundaes girls rock it, and the have an awesome line up of Sponsors. So be sure to check it out!

Finally....this one has been killing me to keep secret!. it's not secret I am a Magnolia NUT! I am all about the Magnolias. I love other lines, don't get me wrong. But I thoroughly enjoy coloring up Magnolias. There is something about them. They are just so fun to color. Well back in August, yes August, Diana Crick of Magnolia-Licous asked me to be on her DT for a NEW Challenge Blog she is starting up! My husband thought it was nuts, I was totally doing the happy dance. I was thrilled to say the least and I have to tell you, Diana is an awesome person and I very grateful she picked me!! ;-)  So be sure to check out the Magnolia-Licous Challenge Blog on this Tuesday, Nov 9th!!!

On to todays card. Since Sentimental Sundays and Paper Sundaes both fall on the same day, I tried to get the most bang out of my card.  I used the Sketch from Sentimental Sundays and the theme of "Let it Snow" from Paper Sundaes! ;-)

The image design is from Wags n' Whiskers. I purchased it from Stamp and Create.  I colored it up with Copic markers. The paper is from that very large stash of Bo Bunny, Winter Joy that I bought. LOL So sorry, you will probably see some more Purple and Aqua Winter cards! ;-)) The sentiment is from Catslife Press
