Gymnastic Tilda

Hi There again
A new Challenge has just begun at MDUC and we want you to make or alter a Giftbox. I decided to alter one which I have had knocking about for a while in my craftroom.
Still inspired by the opening ceremony of the Olympics, I thought I would go with a sporty theme too.

Ive used Gymnastic Tilda With Ribbon from the Winner Takes All Collection 2011. All these stamps are perfect for the Olympics. Ive painted using DI's.
Papers are Papermania which I had left from the Jubilee.

Dies are Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Doo-Hickey So Wrapped Lovely
Sizzix Die-Clock

Have a great weekend

Smiles Across The Miles

 Good Morning everyone
Today to share is a Stepper card Ive made for a sample card of gorgeous 'Hiking Edwin' from the NewAutumn Leaves Magnolia Collection.

I used my son Callum for my inspiration.
Last week he did his Silver Duke Of Edinburgh Award in The Lake District for 4 days.
Can you remember the weather!!!! I think he got more than drenched!
We have spent many a Summer Holiday in the lakes, but more gazing up at the hills rather than walking on them from Lake Windermere.
I even pinched a little piece of his map!!hee hee
Though how he carried a 17kg rucksack on his back for 4 days I havent a clue!!!

Stamps used are Hiking Edwin and Hiking Backround all available from Sir Stampalot

Ive coloured with DI's

Dies used are Tim's Sizzix Pine Tree (cut out 6 times!) and On TheEdge Fence
Doo Hickeys Cloud and Memory Box Puffy Clouds
and a few punch out leaves.

Other stamps were Whimsy Postcard and Postage Stamps.
Hope you like it

Thankyou for taking time to visit me
Bye for now

Baby Shower

There is a new challenge over at MDUC and a lovely surprise in store for our gorgeous DT Member Louise.

Louise is expecting her 2nd baby anytime now, so this weeks Challenges is 'Baby Shower'.
Weve had to be very secretive towards Louise this week with what tonights challenge really was, so she is going to get a lovely surprise:D

Ive made a Baby Bib instead of a card. Ive used Magnolia 'Baby Tingla' from an older collection(not sure which one). Coloured with Distress Inks.
Papers are Maja Vintage Summer

Mini Magnolia World

Im back again with a couple of the Mini Tilda's which were in our Members Kit. I have to say they are very challenging to paint as they are tiny compared to the original, but fun all the same.  

Ive used Mini Tilda with Daisy and Mushrooms, Mini Scooter Tilda and Mini Romantic Window.
I love Scooter Tilda and cant wait for the larger version.
All are painted with Distress Inks

This is how small they are compared to the larger Tilda.

Doo-Hickeys I used are the Fence and Wave Tag. 

Thankyou for taking time to visit me

Have a great Sunday
