Pink & Green

Happy Wednesday!

Time sure is flying. So excited to be on vacation next and my grandson is coming with his parents for his 1st Thanksgiving. He got his first haircut this past weekend from his great grandpa Bort who is a barber. What a great memory for Ezra and his grandpa.

Well now onto our challenge. The challenge this week at Midweek Magnolias is Pink & Green. Two of my favorite colors. I chose he love me, he loves me not Tilda. and this week no paper piecing, she was colored with comic markers. I used Go Create and Magnolia Doohickey dies to create my card. Then I add some flowers, lace, ribbon and a couple of misc. embellishments. The paper is from Lemon Craft.

I can't wait to see what you will create! Have a great week!

Christmas Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it is already November?  Well today Magnolia-Licious is celebrating our traditional Holiday Blog Hop with 2 chances to win a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-Licious. Instructions and details are at the end of the post.

If you arrived here from Julie's blog then your are on the right track. If you need to start at the beginning all you have to do is go back to the Magnolia-Licious Challenge Blog and the post line up is available there.

Here is my main photo of my project. When my parents were on vacation here in September my dad was intrigue with my project. Especially the roof. So I asked him if he wanted to help with the roof. We had such a great time until I ran out of the paper. But he made sure I had a pattern for the roof that was unfinished. We kept saying it was going to be covered with a tarp.....

I chose Prima Victorian paper to create my project. The magnolia images were colored with Copic Markers and paper pieced. I used the following images Pixie Tilda, Tilda with Mittens, Snowy Tilda, Tilda with Tag Gifts, Sitting Tilda and Jasper the cat. If you look at one of my closer photos of the cat he actually has a bell around his neck. I used a few die cuts Magnolia Doo Hickeys Slender firs and Marianne fence, birdhouse and bird die. I used the Tim Holtz washi tape to frame the windows and to cover the bottom portion of my project. Below are close ups of other sides of the house.
