Magnolia Vs Stampavie and Cute Card Thursday


Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge No 1

We have a sketch for the first challenge on Donnas new Blog, at Magnolia vs Stampavie. Hope all the regular Tilda & Co and Sarah Kay followers will join us on this new combined blog. The winners of the blog candy hunt have been posted on the blog so pop over HERE to check if you have been lucky and also to find details of this weeks challenge and the great examples from my fellow DT members. Donna has donated a fabulous prize this week a £20 voucher to spend in her great webstore Crafty Krafts so what are you waiting for



At last a card I am pleased with, I have had a really hetic and horrible time since Wednesday and have had to rush all my cards and projects since then, I am very unhappy with them and feel like taking them all off of the blog, I usually take a lot of time with my cards and like to have a perfect finish, and I know they havn't been up to standard so apologies.


Anyway back to this card, I have coloured the lovely Christmas Tilda with Copics, the backing papers are from the Making Memories Fa La La collection available from Crafts u Love, I have embossed the red card with the Snowflake Folder in the CB, The fancy red flowers are Prima and the poinsettias are from Poppicrafts. The little bead caps have Emerald Stickles added to the middle. Hope you like this one.




and now



Cheers - Cute Card Thursday and WOJ DT Card


The theme this week on Cute Card Thursday, is Cheers, I just love the challenges the girls at CCT come up with and try never to miss a week, Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see the great cards from the DT.




Don't you just love this Charlie 007 from Whiff of Joy, what a great mans card it makes and just right for this challenge. It is my eldest son Matthews birthday next week and as he thinks of himself as "a man about town" I thought this would make a perfect card for him.
Charlie has been coloured with distress inks. The layout is an adaptation of one of Katharinas sketches which just seems to fit this image perfectly, I cut the image, a grey and a black oval with Nesties and layered them up, I used a Stempleglede swirl stamp on the edges of the image oval. The papers are Bohemia and Scarlet Letter, I have not got a plain corner die (anyone with suggestions of where to get one please), so had to make this corner by eye. The sentiment which is also a WOJ stamp has been embossed with Silver Embossing powder and cut with Nesties. Buttons from Stash.



I would like to take this chance to thank all the wonderful people that leave such lovely comments on here, when things are not so good these comments really give me a lift and mean so much, love you all. I will REALLY try to cath up with you all today, thanks again for sticking with me

Jacqui, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself, both of these cards are absolutely stunning and I can't see any visible evidence that you have rushed them, they are fab and so are you :) Donna x

I love both these cards. Charlie looks very dapper in black and white. I adore the centres of the blooms that you've added to the Tilda card. What a lovely thought, to thank your blog commenters. You are so right; the comments keep us all going when we're not feeling so good about ourselves, life or our cards. Hope you're feeling good today.
