The Magnolia used on this Breast Cancer Card is ROSA Tilda med rosbukett Isn't she adorable? I plan to use her for regular cards as well. The little ribbon on her shirt is an optional stamp included with her. I stamped it out and glued it to the shirt.
The fabulous sentiment is from a set of stamps I won from Aud at My Little Corner. Aud actually sells and creates these wonderful stamps among others. Be sure to check her Wonderful blog to see her Gorgeous creations and her stamps!!
I used my wonderful nestabilites again...and the flower in the center of the sentiment is made of a type of hard plastic...very cute.

Every year we rent a cabin and all our kids come out at one time or another. This year we will all be together for most of the stay. It will be great!!

I was so inspired by all the Xmas cards for last weeks Cute Card Thursday..that I made this Xmas card for this weeks challenge.......which is to use brads, buttons and ribbon.
I was happy to use my basic grey figgy pudding paper here. Because it was so popular last year ...it was always on back order...so I received it rather late in the season....and hardly got to use it. I have to wonder what paper it will be this year that I will be drooling over.
For the layout of this card I used the SC180 sketch...what a great sketch to work with!!
The Snowlady and sentiment is set on foam dimensionals.
I used diamond glaze on the birds beak and the candy cane. Glitter for the base and stickles for everything else that sparkles.
The ribbon was something I never thought I would use...goes to show ..never say never..lol.
Image was colored with prismacolor pencils (OMS) and h20's. Details are white acrylic paint.
Paper - whisper white, always artichoke, michaels, basic grey
Ink - versafine black, bordering blue, creamy caramel
Accessories - ribbon, brads, buttons, stickles, glitter, diamond glaze, stitching, swiss dot cb folder, nesties, cord.
We have gotten a lot of rain this past few days. Everything is so beautifully green and fresh smelling. We've been very lucky no really severe storms although we have had warnings.
Have a Great Day Everyone!! Thanks for looking!!!
Deb at Stampin' on the Mountain (aka..Stampin' Granny....Gosh! don't ya' all just love that name?) has some Fabulous candy up for grabs!! All you have to do is make a white card. Deb has some Gorgeous examples on her blog for you to see...among other Fabulous creations!! You have to hurry though cause this Challenge is over on Sunday at 12:00 a.m.
Well...I did not find making an all white card as easy as I thought it would be...but I am happy with this card. So Thanks Deb!!..for a great challenge!!!
I used my nestabilites to make the scalloped frame. I use inked it with versamark...added SU heat n' stick powder....heated it up and then added Martha Stewart fine glitter. I then popped it up with foam dimensionals.
Tip!.....So I wouldn't muck up the front of the frame....I put a foam dimensional on the back before using versamark and then used a craft tweezers to hold onto the foam so I could add the powders and glitter.
So this pretty well wraps it up......white cs.....friend cuttlebug embossing folder...flowers, ribbon, glitter and a bit of stitching and distressing...(of course).
Do you ever wonder why I add distressing so much??..Well I do love the look...but...I swear I can't cut straight half the time...so the distressing takes the stress out of that problem somewhat....I also tend to glue my panels on crookedly very often too....again.....distressing helps with that as well. Me and my dirty little secrets...lol.
Have a Great Day Everyone!!! Thanks for looking!!!

I used the sketch from this last weeks Friday Sketchers. Kimmie at Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner supplied this Fabulous sketch! I also made this card to participate in the Tilda & Co challenge which is to use swirls on your creation this week.
Tilda and her Kitty are both from Magnolia. Tilda is called - VA08 Tilda med kvast and the Kitty is - SA07 Tildas Katt . You can click on their names to find these Cuties. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
I used prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's to color...and white acrylic paint for accents.
The Tilda base and Kitty are popped up with foam dimensionals. The bottom green layer has been embossed with the CB swirl folder, the corner is a CB die and the burgundy swirls are a Sizzix die.
The red netting trim is a goodie from Bernie at CraftyB...(thanks Bernie)

Ink - Versafine black, creamy caramel, barely banana

Tilda is popped up on dimensionals at the top of her. There is some glitter on the water here and there..but it doesn't show up. I added the yellow dots......thinking of the. "Itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" song......lol...in this case it being a 1 piece bathing suit.
I colored it all with prismacolor pencils and h20's.....yellow dots and white accents are acrylic paint. The background with the clouds was an idea I was inspired by with the card Inge sent me for my birthday....you can see this lovely card in this post.
Paper - whisper white, always artichoke
Ink - Bashful blue, creamy caramel
Accessories - label maker, cord, glitter

Bye for now....Be back soon!!
Sorry I am so long in posting. I've had a busy weekend.....company and our twin daughters birthday which we celebrated on Sat. We played games outside during the day and had a late campfire supper. We had a very nice time.
Other than that it has been gardening time!! The weather has been cooperating...so we have been very busy. I have a small vegetable garden...an oriental garden in the far back with our fire pit and many perennial gardens closer to the house. I am so lucky this year.....my hubby has really put in a lot more time than usual helping me with them...so it is all getting done a little quicker. Actually I mentioned closing down a few of the flower gardens.....(more time for stamping..lol) and that is when my DH decided to help....(works for me). Soon I will be back to stamping more.
I have some Gorgeous Birthday cards and a RAK to share with you!
