Tilda with Corkscrews

Good morning, once again, I am late with my posting. But the good news is - we are almost ready to move into our new house and life will go back to normal - what ever that is. 






I've practiced a little with the Distress Inks. I ordered some Langton paper from Sir Stamp a Lot - and WOW - what a difference it makes. It can take a lot more punishment than other papers I've tried, and there is no pilling from over colouring in areas. I'm impressed!  I've inked "Tilda with Corkscrews" from the new collection and "Tilda's Castle" from the "Princeses and Princesses" collection of 2012.


I have also used some of the amazing new dies from the new collection - Peacock feathers and Lace Coaster. Amazing. The papers are also Magnolia. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl
I hope you get a chance to play along with the challenges. 

Until next weekend,

Captain Edwin for the birthday boy

It is Sketchy Challenges time again!
This fortnight we have a fantastic sketch by Colleen to play with.


My boys were invited to a friend's birthday party so I made a card for our birthday boy, Korbin using Captain Edwin from the Fairytale collection from back in 2010.


I have been inspired recently to have another try at Zoe's "lineless colouring" so have stamped Edwin with Memento in light blue before coloring with markers.


Colleen's sketch is a great versatile on to play with and we are sponsored generously by Whiff of Joy stamps so loads of incentive there to come and play along.  Hope to see you there!

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Sketch

Hey everyone, I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter. We're all recovering today from chocolate hang overs. he he he. Good thing it only happens once a year!


I made this card for Magnolia Down Under Challenges - a sketch using this cute stamp from the Christmas collection. She is such a cutie!


The challenge this week is a sketch by me. We would love see what you do with it. 


I love the new Magnolia Doo Hickey dies - this one is the new feathers one. So cute!

I have another card to share with you too for this weekend, so I will be back later.
