sparkly tilda

Hey goodmorning all, it's not a bad day here at least it's not raining lol.
I just wanted to post some pictures of my latest christmas card, i'm not sure if it's very christmassy but hey we are crafters and can do pretty much what we want with a few stamps and embellishments.
I was going to enter this in the Magnolia Downunder challenge blog, you should go look it's a great blog.but it looks like i missed the deadline.. trust
I don't mind though as it gave me some inspiration to make this card, plus the theme was to make our own embellies so i made the roses on this card to be truthful i was quite chuffed with myself lol.
I coloured Tilda with my distress inks and some glittler glue.. i lurvvvvvvvvvv things that sparkle lol
and i used Eskimo kisses 12x12 papers i love the colours in theses papers.
Hope you like and thanks for looking.
Hugs Lindsey xx
PS is anyone else like me?..... I always have the best intention of making cards then i go blog hopping, and there are so many fantastic blogs in blog land that before i know it... ermmmmmmmmmmm half the day has gone so then i am crafting more at night time lol.

Hi all, hope everyone is having a good day and enjoying the weather..i am!
This is another card for the same site as the last, but i am ashamed to say, i still can't remember what it was called.
This is very similar to one i saw on there, oh i am so mad with myself for not remembering what it was called, i even saved it into my favorites but it doesn't seem to be there anymore for some unknown reason.
Thanks for looking

distressing madness

I have had my distressing head on..... I saw a very similar card to this... On a website i have now actually lost and forgot the name of but there were so many fabulous cards on it that i just got so much inspiration i just had some cards.
I am loving all the Ranger and Tim Holtz stuff i just can't get enough unfortuneatly i can't afford everything all at once, so i have to make for do with little and often for
I have not been a very good blogger these past few weeks.
It's because i have got myself some new little friends... my 2 chickens, awe they are so sweet , there names are Thelma and Louise.
I have always wanted to own chickens since i was little, and now nearly half a century later i HAVE THEM woo hooo!!!
I am loving having them in my garden, feeding them and chatting away to them when it's a nice day.
when ever they hear me go into my kitchen the come scurrying to the kitchen door to see if i have any titbits for them.
My 2 dogs are quite good with them too, which i am pleased about. i also get 2 fresh laid eggs everyday, they are much nicer and tastier then shop bought eggs.

Thinking of you

This is a card i have made for my aunty to give to her friend... Her friend is very poorly at the mo, and my aunt didn't want to send her a get well card.
I don't know what this type of card is called but i liked the style of it.
I made it with bright colours as i thought this would cheer the lady up.
I cut the card to size then using my distress inks i covered it all over with mustard seed ink... i then got one of my swirls and i had seen Sheena Douglas doing this earlier on i spritz my swirly stamp with water and stamped and blotted with a napkin.. i loved the effect so much.. i then used the stamp again with the yellow stamp and stamped some more, then i did the same with the green.. how nice does it look woo hoo. i used a few sugar nellie stamps for this card Aril showers stamp was coloured with pro-markers and paper piecing..i love doing that technique. I then made a heart and a butterflyfor inside and back of the card.. i hope i have followed the design right the way through.. Well aunty Linda i hope you like and i;ll get it to you very soon.
Thanks again for looking.. your comments are really apprieciated

An Easter treat

Happy Easter everyone.
i'm feeling the pinch right now.. in other words i am so skint lol.
I couldn't really afford any easter eggs this year, plus my brother and sister don't really like there children eating lots of chocolate.
But as the eggs were so cheap i couldn't not get a couple.
I wanted to make them a bit more special tho... I have used a Mo Manning digital image for my nephew.. coloured him with promarkers used some nice coloured card from my stash.. and even tho i say it myself i was really pleased with the out-come lol.
I used a gorjuss girl stamp for my niece i love these stamps they are so cute coloured again with promarkers. even tho i know that they will just rip them open.. haha after my hard work i don't mind.
Thanks for looking

Magnolia Heart

I recently got my first Magnolia magazine issue 2 i think. I was so impressed with it i just loved everything that was inside it.. all the inspirations and tips plus lovely pictures of many cards i just wanted to do everything that was in the
I got the inspiration to do this little heart bag/box i'm not really sure what to call it.I love all the Manolia stamps but as i have only just started collecting them.. i have a long way to go yet.. but i have just found a site that sells a lot of these stamps that i am itching to get more and more.. but bank balance just tells me i have to wait aweeeeeeeeee!!!.
I coloure my images with distress inks.. i think i am getting better but still have a long way to go yet.
I made a smaller heart and decided to triple emboss it.. to which i then put it into the freezer for a bit so it had that cracke effect.
I then added some prima flowers i have in my stash and paper roses.
I really do hope you like as i enjoyed making it very much.
Thanks for looking.

Friendship Tilda

Hi all
I made this card last night as i wasn't feeling too good and couldn't sleep.
She is one of my latest Magnolia stamps and i just thought she was so sweet.
I coloured her in with distress inks Papers are from stash and i made flowers up from the papers and used a couple of small brads for the flower centers. I honestly don't know why i used a white bow as it just doesn't seem right somehow.
I am going to try and link it up to the saturday sketch challenge but somehow i don't know if it will work.. lol

Hugs Lindsey x

lovely Tilda

Oh my i so love the Magnolia stamps.. Tilda is so so cute and all the different ones you can get.. i can't get over the fact that this time last year i hated all stamps i thought it was just so messy with the inks and always got blotches on everything lol. but now i love it.
I am slowly getting stamps of all kinds for my stash and distress inks.
Tilda is coloured in using the distress inks i am not very good right now with them but i am learning. i have also used my Martha Stewart heart border punch with paper fromthe Bloom and grow pad and honey and hugs are from stash and scolloped circle are nestabilitues.
