Autumn Wishes

Well fall is definitely here in our area.  Took a trip yesterday and enjoyed some of the spectacular yellows, oranges and red leaves.  The temp was even in the 80's and the sun shining brightly, so was a perfect day for a drive.

I made this card with three of the stamps that Diana at Magnolia-licious has in her Special Bundle of Mini Halloween and Autumn images!!!  The 559 Fall Background, 468 Trees in a Row and 3086 Tilda in Autumn Leaves.  Some of my favorites!!!!  Check out the fantastic price and see what all you will get in this bundle HERE.  Or you can still get the stamps individually too!  I've also added the 742 Mini Autumn Wishes.

The binders are wonderful to keep all these mini stamps in.  So easy to page through and see what you have.  Another terrific deal on those HERE!
I've colored with the Promarkers and layered with Spellbinders dies and added EK punch borders.

Stay tuned because tomorrow the design team has some fantastic Halloween ideas for the October Challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites.  I've used three more of the stamps from the Special Bundle!

Thanks for stopping by and I truly enjoy your feedback!!!
Enjoy every day!

Let Us Give Thanks Mother to Be!

EDITED:  I've added yet another version...check it out below!

I knew when this challenge came up, I had to find a "different" one to alter to cover two events or occasions.  We have a 2 for 1 challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites where we are to take one image and create two different themes.  If you came from Suzanne's blog, you are on the right trail and I'm sure she has shown you something extra-special.  If you came on your own, you can go to Suzanne's or to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to get the list and all the details how you can join in too!

The Tilda #245 Mother to Be stamp was rather fun to change from an expectant Mother congratulations card to a Thanksgiving card with Tilda carrying a pumpkin.  Did it make you giggle?  The thought of other than carrying a baby came about when I first colored the Mother to Be with a green dress and I was thinking watermelon!!!  Or maybe it is just me!!!  :)
I've used the pretty #245 Mother to Be image and colored her with Promarkers.  The dotted paper is Doodlebug which I embossed with a Tim Holz embossing folder and then sanded the embossing.   The word stamp is Hero arts and these are punched out with circle punches.  I've added some Spellbinder corners with some EK Success punched flowers and leaves.  Tilda has some pearl accents made from the Viva Pearl Pen.
Then I colored her again with the Promarkers and added some striped leggings and a long sleeve shirt!  In this neck of the woods, in most cases a short sleeve dress wouldn't be warm enough at Thanksgiving time.  I've added an Imagination verse for the banner, EK border punch on the edges of the Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I've tapped Versamark on the embossed part to make it stand out better and added some EK and Punch Bunch punched leaves for a fall look.  The little tendrils on the pumpkin are just wire that has been wrapped around a skewer for shaping.

Be sure to check out the fantastic specials and new items that Diana has over at Magnolia-licious!  She has terrific prices and extra special things for us along with their awesome service!!!  Stock up on the cuties in the Halloween/Fall mini bundle HERE at a great price!!! 

You will enjoy the creativity of the rest of the team, so be sure to go to Mary Giemza's blog and see something very special.  She is so creative!!!   Hope you will join the challenge!

Had to try one more!
Tilda and Edwin are both good bowlers!!!!  I googled bowling pins and bowling score forms on the internet to come up with my background paper and the pins.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers and cut out and popped up with foam tape.

Would love to see what you can create, please join the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!  Diana has a Magnolia-licious Special Surprise for a lucky winner and you know she always gives wonderful prizes!!!
Enjoy every day!

Raspberry Floral Birthday Card

Just a quick posting of a birthday card I made using Spellbinder dies for the oval, flowers and leaves.  The butterflies are Cheery Lynn dies and the little flowers and ferns are punches.  Also used a couple Stampin' Up embossing folders!
Glad you could stop by!  Enjoy every day!

Tilda Wall Art

Wow, September already!!!  What happened to July let alone August!  Well that fun gal Cabio has come up with Anything But a Card for this month's challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!  So I decided I would make something to put on the wall.  Sorry, was hard to get a good picture but I think you'll get the idea!  I make cards and give them away, so this way I can keep these little cuties to enjoy myself!!!

I think Jam Tilda was one of my first Maggies and still a favorite!  Also used some of my very favorite DooHickey Dies too!  You can find lots of these goodies at Magnolia-licious or click on one of these links:
SO SPOOKY TILDA  (removed broom)
Tilda has been stamped on water color paper with Staz-On black ink and water colored with Distress Inks.  A white accent pen has been used and the background ovals are cut with a Sizzix die and Spellbinder die.  Another one of those things I've had for a while and decided it was about time to use!!!
Be sure to check out the specials Diana has going over at Magnolia-licious!  She has put together a wonderful bundle of Halloween/Autumn minis together at a great deal!!!  Perfect for us Fall season and also mini lovers!  If you haven't tried the minis, this is also a great way to get a nice selection to try out!!!  Also she offers store credit on your orders plus free shipping at $75.00 or more for US and $150 or more for Canada!!!
Hope you will join in on the challenge.  Might be a good time to get started on something for gifts!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!!!
