Believe in Your Dreams

Woo Hoo! I made the cover on the latest PaperCraft Inspirations magazine!  This is not the actual card on the cover but one of the others on the feature.  I haven't received my copy yet, but I can't wait to look through it and see all the ideas!
 
This is Annabel Music to My Ears from Lili of the Valley.  All the Annabel little girls are so stinkin cute!!!!!
 

I made a card with a large tag on the inside. I colored her with my Inktense again and the papers are Maja Designs! I used the Vintage Labels - Just to Say on the outside and Quotables - Go For It on the inside.


As I was making the card, I was thinking of my son Wade whose band has been signed with a record label and they are about to release the album.  I have unsettling feelings about all of it even though I know it is his dream.  We will see how it all goes.  I just need him to concentrate on finishing college.

 
Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today! I truly appreciate all of you!
 
Big hugs and have a most wonderful day!

Pink Lemonade Tilda

 
Well, hello there! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
 
My new card is for the Magnolia-licious Challenge - Frilly, Lacy and Feminine! Go ahead and break out your lace and sparkly items for this one.
 
I used the Pink Lemonade Tilda from the Pink Lemonade collection.  I thought she was adorable!  I colored her with Intense Pencils as usual.
 

Here's a little close-up of Tilda.  I really like the yellow and pinkish color together so I had to use the new papers from Maja Designs that I got from Live and Love Crafts.  I have added all sorts of fun girly frilly items to my card like the pink seam binding and the sparkly button I got from The Ribbon Girl.  The die underneath the flowers is a Memory Box die called Fauntleroy Crest.  Magnolia-licious has tons of these pretty dies and she just added a bunch more!! Go check it out.



Check out the NEW stock of Memory Box, Marianne Design and Tattered Lace Dies carried in the store. Pre-order yours now; these have been reduced by 25%.

The theme for this new kit is OH LA-LA!
 
I hope you will join our challenge this time around.  Be sure to go see all the wonderful samples from my talented teammates!
 
Thanks again for stopping by!

With Love

Hello and happy Saturday!
 
I recently had a request for an anniversary card and she wanted me to use the super cute Messy Messages from LOTV. 
 

Embellishments were kept to a minimum since it was for a man. haha! No flowers, no sireee!

The image is colored with Inktense Pencils and the papers are Maja Designs.  I die cut my own heart from some scrap burlap.


The die cut "love" is from Simon Says and the little bow from Lil Inkers.

It's a fun fold huh?  I sure hope her hubby likes it!  I want to wish them both a very Happy Anniversary!!!!!!

 
Thanks for stopping by!

Just A Note

Hiya!  I'm back to share my latest card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge.  It's such an easy one this time - Anything Goes! You have no reason not to enter haha!



For my card I used papers from Magnolia and the stamps are Tilda With Summer Pants from the Pink Lemonade Collection and the Romantic Window.  I did stamp an old script stamp that I have all around the image.  I colored her with Inktense Pencils again.

We'd love to see you join our challenge!  Be sure to check out all the design team's inspiration.

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Sending Warm Hugs!

Well hello there!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  My family and I went canoing.  It was so nice to just be with each other down a quiet little creek and catch up. 

I have a another Christma card to share with you today featuring one of the newest releases from Lili of the Valley.  This little guys is called "Hats Off".  I totally love these new papers from LOTV as well called "Twas The Night", these are definitely my favorites because of the traditional colors.


I'll be back again tomorrow with a card for Magnolia-licious.  Thank you so much for coming by today! 

Hugs, Dena

Penguin Shaker Card

Hey y'all! It is definitely weird posting these wintery cards when it is so blasted hot outside haha!! Don't get me wrong, I prefer the heat over the freezing cold temps, but wowza, it's like a took a bath after walking Rambo around the block whew!

So let me show you this little sweetie called Snow Flurries from LOTV.  This is one of the latest releases.  I think these little penguins and the snowmen are just adorable and super quick to color......BONUS! haha!

I made a shaker card with some shakers I bought several years ago with my friend Andie at the NEC.  Can't believe I am finally using them geez!  I put seed beads and those Robin's Egg crystals on the inside to shake around.


I used one of the newest paper pads from Lili of the Valley called Festive Trimmings.  You can also see below one of the amazing dies from Magnolia-licious called Snowflake Sprig from the Memory Box dies. I'm thinking I will get a lot of use out of this die for all the winter stamps.
Do you just looooove that fluffy trim? My sweet friend sent it to me and I think it just screams winter, so had to use it. Thanks girl!

Hope you like my card.  I know my teammates have made some super fabulous cards with the new release, be sure to give their blogs a visit!!

Have a wonderful hump day!

Hugs, Dena
