It is my pleasure to host the next challenge at MSL, which starts today. The challenge is glitter…Do I host the easiest challenges, or what? :)
For my card I chose Ballerina Tilda, colored her with Copics and added tons of Stickles. The frame was cut on my Cricut using the Lacey Labels cartridge.
That’s is for me today. I heading back out the door to drive to LA again for CHA, which is super fun…but oh man…and I’m beat. If you’re there please be sure to stop by the Stamping Scrapping Designs booth to say hi. I would love to meet you! : )
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday!

If….I had to pick a favorite Magnolia stamp

(and we both know that’s not going to happen) this little cutie , Right From the Heart Tilda, would have to be it. I’ve been hoarding her for quite some time…waiting for just the right time to break her out…Kooky, huh?P1000386-1 copy
Our current challenge at MSL is a sentiment challenge and I love the sentiment on this card so much. My very generous friend Cindy of Bluebird Flats designed this one and is she talented or what?! Cindy has quite a few freebies available on her blog right now! Sweet!!

SSCC Winter Challenge

It has been absolutely gorgeous here in Southern California for the last couple of weeks, so I think I could have gotten away with a beachey card…or a BBQ card or something with bunches of spring flowers, but I think that may have generated a lot of hate mail from my Midwest friends….  ;)

So…I went with something more traditionally wintery, like this cutie from Bildmalarna,   Mimosa Lights the Way. The large snowflakes were cut on my Cricut using the Lacey Labels cartridge.

Tuesday…hmmm?

P1000343 copy

Oh boy…. :)

Our challenge is Blue for Magnolia Lovers…………and although I’m not feeling blue…I am kind of blah, but a blah challenge doesn’t sound very fun, does it. Ha!

I chose one of my favorite Magnolias, Tilda with Bike. She’s another one of those Maggis that remind me of my little girl…..although riding a bike was never…and still isn’t one of her strong points. Right kiddo?

Anyhoo….Cindy at Stamping Scrapping has Tilda with Bike available for purchase right now.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you’re having a fabulous Tuesday!!!

No ones ever thrilled to see a Monday….or a Tuesday and Wednesdays just the day we call hump day…and what kind of a title is that anyway? On Thursday you can start to feel the excitement build…and then…WOO HOO, you wake up the next morning…and it’s FRIDAY!!! YEAH!!!….OK, so yes, someone seriously needs a vacation ;)

It was my turn to kick off the next challenge at the Bildmalarna Blog and keeping it simple, like you know I live for these days, I chose pink.

Happy New Year Friends!

P1000266 copy

I hope that you are all enjoying a peaceful, relaxing finish to the holidays and that 2011 is filled with love and happiness.

It’s early Sunday morning and I’m enjoying a cup of coffee while waiting for my new internet service to be installed, so if you never hear from me again….you’ll know why… ;)

My card today is actually for two challenges. Both the Bildmalarna Anything Goes Challenge and the Scrappy Frogs Sentiment Challenge. Go me!

I chose an image from the Bildmalarna 2010 Christmas collection, Excited Mimosa…which works perfectly for a birthday card too. My sentiment is from the very versatile SSD set of stamps, Label Accents. I matted Excited Mimosa using the Spellbinders Lacey Circles. Both stamps and the Spellbinders Lacey Circles are available for purchase at StampingScrapping.com. Cindy has so many exciting new things in store for us all in 2011! If you get a chance, be sure to check out the new stamps and coordinating dies. So gorgeous!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!
