Chocolate Tilda


Woo hoo! I've managed to pre-post this while I still had internet connection. I started this card when I was back home. I finished the base of it (the layout, the cutting, the glueing, the punching, the flowers, etc.) before I left for vacation and took the card with me. All I had left to do was colour the Tilda image and cut her out and mount her on the card. I finally managed to do that...hurray! (LOL...it doesn't take much to make me happy.)

I made this card for the new challenge blog site Totally Tilda. This is for their first challenge and the theme is Chocolate Tilda. The thing is I don't know if I can link this posting to their website. Because the internet connection (not my own but the hotel's) is rather iffy with this little laptop, whenever I've tried to do it before with an earlier posting, I wasn't able to do it. But I've got a link on my side bar--look for it there!

Au revoir for now. I am having a wonderful vacation. For those of you who are on vacation too, I hope you are having a wonderful time also. Happy weekend to the rest of you. Enjoy! And thanks for dropping by. I appreciate your visit.

Stamps: Magnolia Happy Tilda from Raising the Ceiling Collection, the sentiment is computer generated.

Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities (not sure which label number), Martha Stewart daisy and leaf punches, McGill daisy and twig punches, EK Success retro flower punch small.
Embellishments: pearls (don't know which brand).

Elmit has a Toothache and I'm on vacation

Hello from Annecy, France!

Sorry, I meant to post something before I left as to the time I was leaving for my vacation, but time got away from me. We flew from home 6 days ago for Europe! Woo hoo...how cool is that! And we will be here for a month!!!

Internet connection is pretty iffy while we are roaming around Europe. At least in the places where we are staying. This is the first chance I have of posting something on my blog. Sorry for not e-mailing back to those of you who have e-mailed me--I'm not ignoring you!!! And I only have a tiny laptop with me and it keeps kicking me out!!! So frustrating!

For now, I don't have a new card to show you, but I have made this card for In2stamps before I left. This oh-so-adorable image from In2stamps is called Elmit has a Toothache.

I have used my Prismacolor pencils to colour this image.

And speaking of Prismacolors and because I knew I was going to miss doing my card making, I at least took some stamp images with me and some of my pencils (not all of them though, as I am trying to travel light--we're backpacking...yikes!). I can fill up my time during long train rides and during the evenings when we have nothing better to do. Doesn't that just shows you how obsessed I am?...LOL.

I must say bye for now before I get kicked out again. Tomorrow we are moving to a place where we won't have internet again and we'll be there for a week. Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate your visit.

Stamps: In2stamps Elmit Has a Toothache from the April Releases Collection.
Tools: EK Success border punch.
Embelishments: Making Memories brads, ribbon from my stash.

Summer Romance


Sorry, sorry, I've been neglecting my blog here. I'm getting ready for my vacation and there are just too many things to do and too little time left. LOL...same old same old complains, right? I've been getting things together for my trip and at the same time try to have a few cards done.

Here's one of them. For this card I have used this adorable image from In2stamps. This is called Tender Bear Kisses.

I have coloured this with my Prismacolor pencils. I'm sure enjoying exploring that medium.

I'm keeping this posting short. Enjoy your day. We're having a heat wave where I am--in fact the entire country is in a heat wave.....Yikes!!!

Stamps: In2stamps Tender Bear Kisses (available from In2stamps on-line store here), sentiment from Just Rite Friendship set. Designer Paper: Hot Off the Press Paper Pizzazz Joy's Vintage Papers, Chatterbox Pink to Heart and Scrapbook Walls Sky Cottage Plaid. Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Nine, Standard Circles Large and Small, Big Shot Machine, EK Success retro flower punches medium and small, star punch from Michaels $1.50 bin, Punch Bunch leaf punch.

Red, white and blue theme (with a twist)

Hee hee... I bet you thought you were going to see a patriotic card. Surprise!!!

Happy Canada Day to us Canucks. Hope you had a wonderful Canada Day yesterday.
And to our neighbours south of the border, Happy Independence Day! Hope you have good weather coming your way for your long weekend.

LOL, I took the red, white and blue theme and made a Christmas-in-July card instead.

I have made this card for the challenge at the Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash blog, celebrating the 2-year birthday of Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. The theme is Red/White/Blue.

There's also this sketch that I was supposed to use. I didn't have a picture of the sketch in front of me when I was putting the card together--I had the picture in my mind. So when I was finished and compared my card to the sketch...yikes, I had used an extra background paper!!! Maybe this will disqualify me?!?!
Oh well, thems the breaks. I want to share this card with you anyway.

I am also using this card as my entry to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge 14 - Christmas in July.

I have used this image of Cozy Tilda from Magnolia's So Jolly and Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009. I have again used my Prismacolor pencils to colour her. Lots of glitter that I have added to this card: Tilda's wings, white fur trim on her outfit and on the snowflakes.

Thank for dropping by. I appreciate your visit. Enjoy your weekend! woo hooo.....
