Bluebirds of Happiness

Today is a card that I actually made for a cupcake inspiration challenge and forgot to upload it. Too late for the challenge, but love the fact that I used blue. Very rare for me to use and actually had to dig through a pile of papers to find cs. LOL
Combined Hanglar and Magnolia stamps for this scene. Looks like she is having a beautiful day with birds singing. Unfortunately not so for me, I'm going to be under the gun again for tornadoes. UGH! With all the death and destruction on tv, it makes me nervous. Please keep those affected in your prayers please.
Stamps - Girl with birdhouse (Hanglar) sign w/birds (Magnolia)
Paper - SU cs and MM pp
Ink - Copics and Memento
Misc. - ribbon, Q&Co. hinges, Kaiser bling, stickles

Flutterby Wednesday


Today was a short work day (yea) and decided to come home and play a few challenges. This is a sketch that is really great and they always seem to push me creatively. I flipped the sketch around to work with my image. I finished another challenge and will try to upload that soon.
Have a good day!

It feels like forever since I've made a card. Lately it's been looking at venues, flowers, dresses, favors, etc., etc., etc. Some days the thought of looking at one more thing makes me sick. Other days it's so much fun looking at weddings, ideas. Yesterday was an aha moment for the grooms cake (southern tradition) and everyone is on board! YEA!
Anyhoo...this Tilda was an exclusive to the Netherlands and Tilda is obviously excited about something. Again using my favorite Kaisercraft Tea at Elsie's paper.
Have a great week!
Stamps - Tilda (Magnolia)
Papers - Tea at Elsie's (Kaisercraft) CS (PTI)

Tilda at the Kentucky Derby


Who knew Tilda would walk the red carpet at the Kentucky Derby? LOL With all the fabulous hats (and some ugly ones) from the royal wedding and today at the Derby - Tilda had to make an appearance. How I wish I had the Magnolia horse to add to this card - but Tilda is still looking good standing by the fencing. The horses are truly magnificent to look at -so powerful and beautiful. I decided to dress my fence up with roses.
BTW - if you watch the pre-Derby show - Bobby Flay will feature someone from my town. Moonlight restaurant is known worldwide and will be on with him.
Hope your horse is a big winner today!!! Good Luck
Images - Tilda with straw hat (Magnolia)
Paper - SU cs
Ink - Memento and Copics
Misc. - WOC roses, Magnolia fence die, ribbon
