I hope everyone is having a great day! It is unseasonably warm here; 60 degrees. I will take it. The blue birds were here the other day. Poor things are all confused!
I decided I would enter my December calendar page in the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge.
I used *Magnolia SNOOWIE WITH STAR Rubber Stamp So Snowy 2009. Such an adorable stamp. The paper is from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection. The image was colored with Copics and I cut corresponding paper for the hat, gloves, scarf and star. On the lantern I used a gold spica pen and yellow and silver glitter pens too. To finish the page I used some floss and a Mulberry Paper Flower. I did my all time favorite I used Gathered Twigs distress ink on the edges of the calendar and page.
Thank you for stopping by!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I went craft shopping yesterday. I got one cute Magnolia who I am hoping to create something festive with this week. Plus I got a few of the Memory Box die cuts. I haven't used them yet; I had to finish another project before I open them. Otherwise the other project would not get finished.
Here are four more pages from the 2012 Magnolia calendar. July is the icecream cone with the cute mini Tilda, August is the adorable dog and doghouse, September - one of my favorites Sunflower Tilda, lastly October Tilda with a pumpkin.
Two more months to go. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good day today. Here are two more calendar pages. March and June. For the March page I used the Tilda Stamp from the Love Collection 2009 and the beach fence. I added a couple of butterflies and some bling.
For the June page I found from Mayan Road these adorable chip board teapots, cups, etc. So I covered them with paper and inked up the edges. I couldn't resist using Lazy Day Summer Tilda resting on the tea party pieces. Lastly, I used a sentiment "You're my Cup of Tea".
The calendar is finished; I will post more later. Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.....

The April calendar page features Tilda with Boots. I used the corresponding paper for her dress, bow and boots. I added liquid glass to the boots to give them a shiny appearance. I cut the fence from brown paper, added some brown flower soft and some bling.
The May calendar page is my favorite thus far. Well Dressed Tilda is just too darn sweet. Her dress was cut from corresponding paper. She has a beautiful pearl necklace to finish the look. I cut the flower from different matching paper and popped each layer. Lastly, the beautiful pearl bling was added to compliment Well Dress Tilda.
Monday, I will post March and June. Let me know if you have a favorite. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me comments!!!! It is very much appreciated.

I hope everyone is having a good week! We are having exceptionally nice mild weather. I just hope it lasts.
Below is the January and February calendar pages. The chipboard esmbellishments are from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle Collection. I colored the images with Copics. On the mini Tilda I stamped the paper and cut out her dress. For Tilda with the big ribbon I stamped her bow and socks then cut them out. The button is from Mayan Road with a ribbon made from floss.
Stayed tune for March and April!

It has been awhile since I last posted. This is a sneak preview of my 2012 Vintage Magnolia calendar. Below is the cover. I used Bo Bunny the Gabrielle Collection with a matching chipboard embellishment. I spritz'd the flowers with Creme de Chocolate glimmer mist. I inked the edges with gathered twigs distress ink and colored Lazy Day Summer Tilda with Copic Markers. The lace was added to finish the vintage look.
Stayed tuned for January & February later this week. Thanks for stopping by!

It's been awhile since I posted. I have busy working on my recipe cards for the recipe swap. Yeah! They are finished.
My sister turns fifty on Sunday; here is her birthday card I created. I used Bo-Bunny paper stamped the dress and bow cut them out and attached. I colored her skin, hair, hat and boots with Copic markers. To make her a fashionista liquid glass was used to give her stylin' yellow boots. I used my cricut to cut out the 50 using Basic Grey "Out of Print paper. I stamped the background. For the finishing touch I added a flower and ribbon.
The inside of the card is very simple. I repeated the 50 theme inside the card. I used Sparkling Tilda which I colored with Copics and added some white glitter to her wings.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
