The Boo Crew - BnW Card

Happy (really early) Halloween...here comes "The Boo Crew"
This image is called "Fairy Play" from Belles 'n Whistles and isn't she so perfect for a Halloween card.
She has lots of shimmer on her dress, but the picture doesn't capture it so well.
These papers are so last year! lol But I love them and needed to play with them.
Hope you will like it!

Also, Belles 'n Whistles is having a new release blog hop with gorgeous samples from the DT.
You can read all about it here.

I Love You - Magnolia Card

Hello there, hope you had a great weekend.
My sister dropped in for a surprise visit this weekend, and it was exactly what I needed!
Although we didn't do much, it was good just to be around each other.
She did see all my craft supply and asked "Do you even know what you have in there?" My reply..."Of Course!!!" LOL

Here is a card I've been playing with for some time.
I made this "I Love You" card using little miss "Circus Tilda" from the new Magnolia Cozy Family Autumn Collection.
I just adore all the cute stamps from this collection,
She looks so sweet and darling to me,I had to but her in the classic pink, green and blue dress. :)

Woohoo! It's here! It's here! My first card as a DT member for Whiff of Joy Challenge!
The challenge runs every other Wednesday and make sure to use a WoJ image on your project.

WoJ Challenge is turning 2! So we are celebrating with a "Thank You" challenge this week.
The DT have made beautiful "Thank You" cards for Katharina, drop by the challenge blog and check them out.
Thanks Katharina for all the wonderful images you have available for us to play with!

My card for Katharina is "Sweet Thanks" and I have used Melinda with Cookies.
I attempted to bake some cookies to send along with this card, but found out quickly that I'm not a baker!
I'm getting her some store bought cookies, it tastes better and it's much more pleasant on the eyes. lol

Here is a sweet "Happy Birthday" card with Simsalabim Tilda.
Her magic wand has been replace with some Birthday balloons. Her dress has a layer of gorgeous lace with tiny pearls.
I picture her as the Birthday Girl or just a sweet friend showing up to the party.

There are a few places with lace on this card, her dress, the lace bow on the green flower, and the pink lace trim around the "Happy Birthday" red paper.
I'm entering this into Just Magnolia Challenge this week which calls for "Lace". I've also used the sketch from the last challenge, thanks for the great challenge!

Make A Wish - BnW Card

Today's card has this adorable image from Belles 'n Whistles called "Wishes". This is one of my all-time-favorite stamp.
She's so adorable on her tippy toes and who knows what she is wishing for.
If it was I, I would wish for never ending craft supply...heheee

I used lots of Flower Soft on the well and ground. I really love the product, brings that 3D effect to the image nicely.
The bow already looks beautiful on it's own, didn't need to add much, just a tiny pearl to make it a bit more elegant.
I also added a couple of gem drops on the side and I really like the look of it. Will be using this more often.

Cute as a Bug - Magnolia Card

Hi there! Hope you're having a great day!
Don't you think this little Tilda is "Cute as a Bug"? I sure think so.

In her hair, I've tied two tiny knots to make her a bit unique. Added a beautiful ladybug ribbon, and some flowers with dots to keep with the theme.
There are some Prima Swirl and pearl centers...love them!...and of course the flowers are also from Prima.
I was so happy to have found this paper stack from The Paper Studio. It's from the Autumn collection, but I think it's perfect for this card as well.

Flower Girl - Magnolia Card

Update 09-12-10: This card made the Top 3 at Totally Tilda!

Thank You So Much!
Another cute and adorable Tilda to play with. Yay!
I've added a veil and the bow to make her a bit more 3D. Her bouquet has a layer of glaze with some stickles for the added sparkle and shine.
I tried the crackle glass technique on the oval background, I'm not happy with the way it looks on this card. I need more practice!
I like this purple, green and a hint of pink color combo. Hope you like it!

Please join us with your card for this sketch, you have until the end of the month to play along.

This week the Belles 'n Whistles challenge is to make a school project.
My card doesn't look it at first, but look closely...lol...you will see big sister Belle is carrying a stack of books and little sister is holding a bouquet of flower for the teacher. Doesn't it look like they are heading to school together? Just like my sister and I when we were much much younger!

Please stop by the challenge blog and have some fun with us this month.
