Giant Pegs + Sketch Saturday 35
I have decorated these pegs for the craft shop but forgot to put them on my blog!! I am getting so forgetful. I have used Basic Grey papers to cover the pegs and just added a few extra embellishments. The pegs are about 6" high and would make a great alternative to a birthday card or for holding notes or just for keeping the washing on the line in very windy weather!!This is my card based on the sketch at Sketch Saturday. I have used another Tilda from the Love Collection 09, isn't she cute and coloured her using Prismacolours. The new Magnolia Collection will be available from Sir Stampalot later today.Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Alva, Love Collection 09 - Tilda + Sentiment, Bench + Heart from Previous Collections, Sugar Nellie - Sheriff

Cute Card Thursday 'Valentines' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday is Valentines. I have made my card using 3 stamps from the new Magnolia Love Collection 09, the Tilda and Edwin are 2 separate stamps and I think this Tilda will look lovely on her own. These are the cutest stamps, the faces are so sweet and I love this sentiment. I will be adding some cards made with more of the new stamps over the next few days.

Tilda + Friends 'No DP' Challenge
The challenge at Tilda and Friends this week is to use no DP on your ATC. I have used another of the older Tilda stamps which I have coloured with Pro Markers and added a swirl cut from a Cuttlebug Vintage Corner Die.
I have been a very bad blogger just recently (sorry!!) but I will catch up over the next couple of days.
I received my Magnolia DT package yesterday, the new stamps are gorgeous. I have used on my CCT DT card which I will post tomorrow, I can't wait to use the others, the giant cupcake is so cute.
This photo was taken in the Mini Photographic Studio the other night, I think it has turned out well, it definitely makes taking photos easier.

Cute Card Thursday 'Create A Scene' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to create a scene on your card. I have used one of the new Alva stamps and the toadstool from the Jingle Jangle Collection and other Magnolia stamps.
I took the photo last night using my new Mini Photo Studio, the colours are very good on the main image, it's just the stamped image on the base card which looks a bit pale I think I need to have a bit of a practice positioning the lights! I think it might be better with the white backdrop so I will have a try later when I've had my hair cut. It hasn't been done since July so it will be a shock going red and short again!!
This one is taken with a white backdrop, I think the one above is better. Will have to experiment with it I think!
Stamps: Magnolia - Sitting Alva, Toadstool, Edwin's House, Log, Ant, Toadstools, SU Sanded, Hero Arts - Sentiment

Tilda + Friends '1,2,3' Challenge
The challenge at Tilda + Friends this week is to use 1 button, 2 ribbons and 3 flowers on your ATC. I have cheated a little as I have counted the button on Edwin's trousers and the roses in the bouquet but I have added 2 ribbons to the bottom of the ATC! We are looking for a Guest Designer for February so why not pop over here and join in the fun making ATCs.
My mini photographic studio arrived yesterday (early birthday pressie) and whilst I was at work last night hubby was playing with it and the photos turned out really well, the colours looked fab. So I am hoping to make a card today so I can try it out myself!!

Papertakes Sketch 6
Finally I have got round to uploading my DT card for this weeks Papertakes challenge which is another fab sketch by Dawny.
I just can't get back onto card making at the moment. This isn't helped by the fact that hubby has decided to start painting our bedroom and all my craft goodies are in boxes all over the house!! I got a late Xmas pressie today a couple of the new Magnolia Elf stamps so hopefully this will get me crafting again!
