MDUC # 141 - Sketch


I could get used to being off work and crafting - I have managed to blog every day this week.

I have had a lovely day today with my Mum and little Brother. We have been to see Battleship at the flics and it was a great film.

I decided to have a go at the MDUC sketch and here it is:

This is one of my treasured Magnolia's because she was one of my first oldies from the NEC a couple of years ago. She may not be everyones taste except mine and my Auntie Chanelle's but I LOVE her.

I decided to colour her on kraft card with my pencils instead of my markers and I am really pleased with how this has turned out. My colouring may not be brill but I still think it looks okay.

I am going off to link this one up to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge.

PS - I have no idea what has happened to my post layout and I will have to try and sort it out later.

Mini Tilda Card


Last night I made a card with my pride and joy at the minute, my mini Tilda and Romantic Window.

The papers I used were scraps from another project and I think they are Prima. I couloured the image with my Promarkers.

Excuse the big blob of glue under the Butterfly button. I think I got a bit carried away with the glue gun and didn't notice until this morning but never mind.

I have joined in the following challenges:-

Dragons Castle

For the first time in a little while I did lots of colouring and made a card just for fun yesterday. I thought I would have a play with my new magonolias that I haven't even inked up yet.

It took me an age to colour the castle, but I love the new Tilda that I bought yesterday to go with this.

My cute little pink dragon is also one of my new favourites because I think this is good for boy or girl. I decided to colour her pink so obviously this one is for a little girl.

I decided to make a gate fold design using my 8 x 8 cards and covered in brown card stock and blue crown Magnolia paper.

As I am on holiday from work I thought I would join in with a couple of challenges.

Totally Tilda - Challenge # 44 - "Happy Birthday"

Just Magnolia - Week 151 - Special Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes

I am off to colour more images because I want to try and cram as much crafting as I can into this week, but I am off to the pics tomorrow so that should be a nice day out.

Happy Easter & Candy Tree

Well boy am I glad to see the back of my Easter Boxes. I did my last order today and I can't tell you how good it felt!

I made my last one a little bit different, but I still like it

Both the images are borrowed from my Auntie Chanelle but when my Mum arrived home from work today she had a little Easter treat for me and it was this chick maggie and an old ice skating Tilda - love them.

I thought I would share a little pic of my Hubby's gift to me for Easter. It's a Cadburys Egg Candy Tree!!

I love it, but I just don't want to eat the eggs now!!!

I hope everyone has a lovely Easter and I will hopefully be able to blog more this week because I am on holiday. Lots of crafting and shopping is in order.

Get Well Soon

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying Good Friday. It's the first day of my long break so I am loving it. I am going to do lots of "me" crafting this week.

I haven't blogged or commented because I have had lots of Easter Box orders that upon reflection was a bit more than I could handle; however the pennies have been worth it.

My Uncle isn't well at the moment and here is a card that I have made for him...

A little fun and quirky, but I love it so I hope it made him smile.

This Sassy Nurse is from Bugaboo and I have had her a little while. I love my digi collection!

Right, I am off to ink up some new stamps that I just haven't had the chance to use yet and do a little bit of commenting.
