Liberty Tilda

Hello Magnolia lovers and stamping friends! I'm back! It has been a rough but lazy week for me.  After my surgery last Wednesday, I have not done much of crafting at all. I was taking strong medication and it just kept me drowsy and taking quite a few naps during the day. Yesterday was my last dose of strong narcotic pain killers so I'm back to my routine...(I hope)

Now for my project today, I have Lady Liberty Tilda. I colored Tilda with COPICS!!!! Yes, I used my COPICS and it's been a while.  During my surgery, I had to divert my attention from reality and what was really going on! ( a drill going to my skull thru my oral cavity, embedding 4 titanium screws in FULL torque while I was wide awake. I can feel the jarring of my head, I can hear the grinding of my bones as the drill bit goes in.)
 And I thought,  after my surgery, I'm gonna use Copics. So, here it is!!!

July 4th this year is extra special for me and my family.  Earlier this year, my family and I were sworn in to become US citizens!

Thank you so much for dropping by!

Key Largo Tilda

It's officially summer! But I'm glad that the weather has mellowed down a bit from last week. Hopefully this week we'll keep it all in the 80's.

 My card for you today is features Key largo Tilda and I think she is one of my favorites from the Summer memories Collection.  I'll tell you why in a minute :)
So here's my card!

I colored her with Distress Ink Reinkers. Paper pad is from MLYB Splash! I will fill in the details of the ink I used a little bit later.


This is why Key Largo Tilda is my fave! LOL

Time Heals

Happy Monday everyone!  My card today features Doctor Edwin.  
When this stamp was released I just knew I had to get it.  
I colored him with Distress Ink Reinkers on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper.
 The sentiments I used are from Tim Holtz.  The letters in the word "heals" are from different words from the Addage Ticket and the "Time" is from Idea-ology Metal word tags.
The DP is from Basic Grey and all the other embellishments are from my stash.
Yup! Time heals! In my case, 3 months of healing went fast! I mentioned before, that I went thru some oral surgery and 3-4 months was my time frame for healing before proceeding to the next phase. Well, it's time for me to move on to the next phase and my surgery is on Wednesday, June 20! I hope everything will go smoothly! Wish me luck!

A closer look at Doctor Edwin.

Edwin in Miami

 Happy Friday  to all!
Today at Tilda's Town Challenges we have a new challenge for you.  The theme for this week is

Lazy Days of Summer
Summer is here! And Edwin is here to wish you the best this summer.
For my card today, I have Edwin in Miami from the Summer Memories Collection. I also used the beach background from Lazy Summer, a sand castle and seashell to create this summer scene.
I colored the image over a month ago with Distress Ink Reinkers. The DP is from Queen & Co and I really like the colors: bright green, blues, orange and yellow. I have used the other coordinating DP with my other summer themed projects because I kinda liked their summer color combo.

A closer look


Because I inked this image over a month ago, I can not remember what colors I used :(


Ok, Now, pop over to my talented teammates blogs for more inspiration for this week's challenge. Don't forget to link up your creations to Tilda's Town Challenges
and link back to us from your entry post.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dreams DO come true!

I have been holding this out over the weekend...some exciting news that I kept to myself until today. 
I am still pinching myself to make sure that it IS true. The smile I had my face the moment I got the news, is still visible and apparently hurting my cheeks. LOL!

I can not describe how I feel. It's a mixture of excitement and happiness in all different levels. 
My journey in the world of crafts started September 2011 and I have loved every step of it.

Now, I am so honored to be part of a International Design Team 
who has inspired us all with their talent!

My heartfelt THANKS to 


for making me part of the design team and letting me share my ideas.

To my friends and followers, your words of encouragement and your lovely comments has inspired me so much and for that, I thank you.

Being part of the Magnolia Sweden Family is a dream come true!!!
