Anything Goes

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are all having a great weekend! I just spent an amazing week with my wonderful friend Kelly. We had an awesome time crafting. Our friendship began with crafting and this was the first time we met in person. I have to say I felt like I've known her forever. We had lots of laughs and did lots of shopping.....

Are you ready for our Simply Magnolia "Anything Goes"? I made this Tussie Mussie for my DIL's baby shower. I used Pion Paper, paper banner, wooden chipboard, feathers, pins, tulle, resin frame, and cheese. I used the Magnolia Stork stamp and colored the image with Copic Markers. 

Enjoy your week!

Shabby Chic


Happy Easter,

Please join us at Simply Magnolia for our "Shabby Chic" challenge. Today I chose For You Tilda for my shabby chic card. The paper is from Lemon Craft. I colored my image with Copic Markers. The centers of the flowers were created with liquid pearls and I added Frantage to the background. The die cuts used were Joy Crafts Butterfly Border, Go Create Dies and Magnolia Doohickey Dragon fly. To complete my design I used ribbon, lace, pearl bling, and flowers. 

Don't miss out on my candy! See the details below.

Pink, Pearls, Ribbon and Candy

Hello Maggie Fans,

I can't believe March is over. Time just flies. In one month we are expecting the arrival of our first grandchild! No one know whether it is a girl or boy not even the parents themselves. So for her baby shower I decorated her table with both Pink and Blue.

Below is a photo of my DIL. Do you think it is a girl or boy?  I know let's have some fun. Her due date is May 1st. If you want to play along here is what you need to do:

1. Become a follower if you are not already (I would like to reach 250 followers. I hope you will play along)
2. Guess the due date
3. Guess the sex of the baby

Here is what the person who gets the due and sex of the baby correct. Now we may end up with the closet date. A $20.00 gift certificate to Magnolia Licious plus a special gift from me.

I created this Tussie Mussie using Pion Paper (my most favorite). The embellishments I added were pearl trim, pearl bling, flower trim, ribbon, tulle trim, resin and chipboard goodies. For Magnolia Stamps I chose Little Cute Tilda and Flower Basket. Tilda skin and hair were colored with Copic Markers and her outfit and ribbon I stamped on the DP.
