Merry Christmas

Hello Friday! We are ready for the weekend!
 My card today features a stamp from the Little Christmas Collection and I love this because it's an image with a sentiment! I colored Tilda with Copics and I cut her out. I also used the poinsettia and vintage tag DooHickey.  The snowflakes are from Lifestyle Crafts and the twigs/branch is from Marianne Designs. The berries, I made by myself using red and white stamens painted with Glossy Accents and dipped in extra fine glitter.
A closer look at Tilda.

The pearl brad is from Michael's.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like my card for you today!
Have a safe weekend!

Tilda with 2 Gifts

Hello Friends. It's Friday once again and I know everyone is excited about the weekend. Today, I'm a bit sad because one of our favorite challenge blogs is closed.  I've been part of Just Magnolia for a few months and I really enjoyed working with the girls especially with Bev, owner of JM.

Anyway, I don't want the week to end, or the weekend to start without me sharing a card to you guys. Here, I have Tilda with 2 Gifts which is part of the Christmas Story Collection 2012. I decided not to make a Christmas card with this image but instead a card that can be given for a birthday or any other occasion. 

I colored Tilda with Distress Ink Reinkers and some Magnolia papers to match the colors.  The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the laces, ribbon, doily...are from my stash.

 Here's a closer look at Tilda

I hope you like my creation for today.
Thank you for visiting my blog and my main blog.  I really appreciate your comments and knowing that you took time to drop by.

Have a great weekend every one!

I am Thankful

Hi friends! Today I have a card that I made for the TT Challenge with the theme: I am Thankful.
 Well, God has given me a million things that I am so thankful for and one blog post is not enough. So I will narrow it down to stamping. Early this year I had oral surgery, (the first of several). My whole face was swollen beyond recognition, from my forehead to my neck.  It lasted for 4 weeks and started to shrink during the 5th week. Right before the 8th week, I had to undergo another one.  And the swelling started all over again! Facing the mirror was depressing, talking was such a task and eating was so difficult. And I don't even want to talk about the pain. Urgh! 

Aside from the support from my family (especially my DH), stamping and coloring made me feel so much better. Every time, the pain kicks in, it would remind me of how hideous and swollen I looked the last time I accidentally faced the mirror. Believe me, I took showers in the dark, brushed my teeth bending over the tub, just to avoid looking at the mirror. :(  And during those days, I would just go to my desk and stamp and it helped me alot. 

Around this time last year, was when I started stamping and coloring.  I came across some card photos online and those photos inspired me so much to stamp.  I saved the photos on my iPad and made them my screen saver. Some times I would just scroll over the photos and stare and admire the creativity of the person who made them. And those card were made by PAM, our team leader and coordinator at Tilda's Town. She has been an inspiration to me and she always will. And I thank her for that. :)

Back to my card! I colored Tilda with Copics and I chose circular dies to make this card. THe beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the DP is from Magnolia, the butterfly is from Michael's and the sentiment is handwritten by me.

Have a great weekend!
