Sunflower Tilda Again

Here she is.....the exact same Tilda! I colored two of them when I posted the original card and decided to make a card out of the "spare" Tilda. The bucket of flowers is a Judith stamp that's been in my stash for a long time. It finally got its chance to come out and play today. It's been so hot here and today we had a bit of drizzle. I needed these sunflowers to brighten up the day. tfl.......d

Just a few things we will be making at card class next week. The onesies are a
Sizzix Bigz die. The center card is an idea from Dawn It's the first time I have tried stamping white Staz On, on acetate. I love it, just have to keep the stamp from sliding around! Just a few simple samples.....tfl......d

Another Tilda!

I am loving playing with these Tilda's and Copics. Added a bit of Flower Soft, Paper Glaze and Stickles. It was fun using lilacs and purples. I rarely use those colors and it was a fun change. I need to get out of my pink and blue rut! tfl.....d

Leave a comment here and you may win the blog candy from Regina's site!

Regina, at the Cutting Cafe, is giving away the darling, Tiny Solid Dot Open Printable Stamp as Blog Candy. I am adding these goodies to the lucky winner. Just post a comment here and a winner will be announced on Thursday. I used the Tiny Solid Dot Open as a background on this card. At first, I colored random circles red, and then decided to make them pop more and added red stickles. I love this printable because you can add any color you want to the circles and make it match your project. Here is a link to the Printable that you can win by posting your comment

Now, hop on over to Nikki's blog for a chance to win the printable stamp that she used.
Good luck, and HAPPY HOPPING! tfl..................d

Sunflower Tilda

My first attempt at a Tilda with Copics. I can't beleive how many Copics it takes to make one little Tilda! I am really having fun learning how to use these markers. Stay tuned for some blog candy and a blog hop on Monday with the BBTB challenge......tfl...d

Turtles don't have hands!

I love this saying, and I love this turtle stamp, and even if turtles don't have hands, I still think this saying works with the turtle! I used my new Papertrey cardstock and patterned paper. I have tons of ribbon, honestly, I do, but, found a reason to justify all of the Papertrey ink and ribbon I have on my wish list. I wanted to ink the edges and didn't have an ink that matched and had to use white ribbon for the same reason. I guess I need to pay Papertrey a visit! In case the saying is too small to read when I post this card, it sais....
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it is your world for a moment. tfl.......d

Hippo Hippo Hooray

Fourth and final card for todays challenges. I found this cute little hippo stamp yesterday and wanted to try out my new Copics. I definitely need to learn how to use them, but, had to start somewhere, right? I love them already. tfl.......d

3rd Card of the Day

This is my 3rd card was challenge #10, to use a circle or an oval. I love this scalloped Bigz die. Added the Nestabilitie ovals and ta da....a quick and simple card!

Robyn's Mother's Day challenge

This is my take on Robyn's Mother's Day card challenge. My sweet Hazel loves purple, and this card is for her. I bought a few of the new QuicKutz embossing folders yesterday and decided to use this one for the challenge. I also used (for the first time ) Core'dinations Classic Sunshine cardstock and sanded over the embossing. Another simple card, that makes two for the day so far...........tfl....d

A card in under an hour?

Robyn at the Pink Stamper

is having challenges on her blog today for National Scrapbook day. Go check out her site, there are lots of fun things going on there! I challenged myself to make a card in an hour. Probably not a lofty goal for most, but, I am the SLOWEST stamper on the planet, so, it was quite a goal for me. I did challenge number 1.......Use pink and brown together. I guess I could also count this as challenge number 2 because I have never used my Cuttlebug to cut felt before, but, I will try to come up with something else for that challenge. Today on Lauren's site, she had a tutorial on cutting felt in your Cuttlebug, so, I gave it a whirl. It worked great! Here is the link to her site. I forgot to look at the clock when I started making the card, but, I think my hour was up, so, even though I thought of a few things I could add to the card, I stopped. tfl......d
