The flowers are a mix of wild orchid crafts and dollar store.  Lots of pearls too of course. We have a wedding for our friends Lyle-Lynn and Norm coming up, can't wait! Hope they like the card.

Easter Treats....


Hi guys, time for another Magnolia Down Under challenge. This time it's a sketch. Don't you love sketches. I do!!!! Saves me  We also have the option of Easter Treats. I masked this sweet Tilda with her treats - a big egg full of Cadbury Chocolate Mini Eggs (hahahahaha at least that's what I want for Easter)...  I used some soft pastel Nursery papers and spring flowers and butterflies. I really wanted that pop of teal and I think it works okay.   Well I'm off to the city for more hockey.  We decided to sign our middle son up for Spring hockey (guess we didn't have enough of it all winter...hahahahaha).  Actually I can't wait to watch him play on a team with kids he's never met. Great to see how his skills match up.

Info: Paper: DCWV Nursery
Colouring: Copic Markers
Shading: Prisma Colour Pencils
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Doohickeys and Die cuts...

Hi all, hope you're having a great week. I have some Magnolia Inspiration for you. Over at Magnolia Down Under we have our new challenge - Doohickeys and Dies. So this means you can use only those, no images, but a sentiment is fine. I have to admit I don't have very many, you are seeing probably all of mine here -minus the butterfly. I came across a beautiful card by Karen Shady and took inspiration for my creation.  The top pic looks  a little wonky as the card was bending backwards. The sympathy stamp is from Whimsy Stamps. Hop over and check out the MDUC dt creations, wow!
