Sketchy Colours + Just Magnolia
I'm having a big sulk today as my Tim Holtz TSV still hasn't arrived and I was looking forward to spending the day playing with it!! I decided to make a card instead and this is what I came up with. The colours are for this weeks Sketchy Colours challenge 'Red, Pink + Turquoise' and at Just Magnolia the challenge is to make a Birthday Card. I have used an older Tilda from Magnolia, Tilda In Spring Rain and Bo Bunny papers. I haven't used this colour combo before but I really like it and will definitely be using it again. Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks (I am loving the new colours) and I have added some flowers punched with the EK Success Retro Flower punches and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies.
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!Supplies

Yippee - Look What Arrived Today!
My 12 new Distress ink pads from LB Crafts were waiting for me when I got home this afternoon, the colours are gorgeous and I can't wait to have a play with them! Thanks Linda for the speedy delivery.

Magnolia DT, Cute Card Thursday 'Ribbon' and Simon Says Stamp
Here is another Magnolia DT card from the latest collection, 'Through My Heart' which I have made for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge of ribbon and the Simon Says Stamp challenge of 'Vintage with Flowers'. A little bit of a cheat I think but the raffia type stuff is called Abaca Ribbon, so I thought it would count!!!
I have stamped 'Ladybug Hearts' Tilda and coloured her with Distress Inks ( I can't wait for my new colours to arrive, hopefully very soon!!). The sentiment is the 'A Gift From The Heart' stamp and I just masked off the words A Gift. The labels have been cut with Nesties and the corners are from the Heritage cartridge for the Cricut. The flowers are from Magnolia and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I love this brown stripy paper which came in my DT kit but there is no name on it, I just wondered if anybody knows who the manufacturer is.
Have a fabby Thursday and don't forget you can pre order the Easter Collection stamps and papers from Sir Stampalot.Supplies

Magnolia DT + Cute Card Thursday 'Metal Mania'
This is another Magnolia DT card using stamps from the new Through My Heart Collection. The theme this week at Cute Card Thursday is Metal Mania and I have added 3 brads to my card. I have coloured the images with Distress Inks and added some Stickles for a bit of sparkle. I love this stripey paper but I'm not sure who makes it as it was in my DT package, as were the gorgeous flowers. I am also entering this card for the Quixotic Challenge, 'Something for Mum'.
Another quick post as I am so behind with things with the kiddies been at home.
Have a good Thursday!

Just Buggin 3D Challenge
This weeks challenge at Just Buggin is to make a 3D project, a bag or a box etc. I made a little heart bag cut with the Cricut for my hubby for Valentines Day and filled it with some truffles. The bag is cut with the Tags, Bags, Boxes + More, the hearts are Doodlecharm and the birds are from the Heritage cartridge. This was so quick to make and I have just added a touch of glitter to the birds, a red bow and a pearl heart. I Cuttlebugged the red heart, but you can't really see that on the photo!
I hope you have a fab Valentines Day and get some lovely pressies!Supplies

Valentine Tilda
Here is my card for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which is 'In The Name of Love. I have used a Magnolia image, Cupid Tilda, a tree which I cut with the Cricut Heritage cartridge and some mini hearts (also Cricut). The papers are Bo Bunny and Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks.
Another bad week of blogging and a lack of card making!!! I always seem to be so short of time these days, although I do have quite a good excuse I think this week as hubby and the kids have bought me a Gypsy for my birthday on Monday. I've been busy playing with that and think I am just about getting used to it.
Have a good Thursday and a fabby Valentines Day!!

Cute Card Thursday 'Spots and Dots'
This weeks theme at Cute Card Thursday is Spots and Dots. I have used Magnolia stamps from the 2008 School and Travel Collection and also Magnolia papers from the Yummy Tummy Collection. The train is cut with the Cricut and Bazzill Card.
I'm not sure about this card but I haven't felt like crafting as I have had a some sort of virus and have been feeling yukky most of the week. Luckily I'm starting to feel better now although I have passed it onto hubby!!
My new Magnolias from the Through my Heart collection arrived from Sir Stampalot yesterday, they are gorgeous especially Wilma the Dog and I can't wait to make a card using this image tonight.
Have a good Thursday!!Supplies
