Another Christmas Magnolia Card!

Hello everyone! How is your weekend before Thanksgiving?! I hope you're getting time to stamp or do whatever you enjoy this time of year! I made this Magnolia easel card according to The Sweet Stop sketch this week. The challenge also includes decorating the inside of your card.

I've been working more on my coloring, and bought a few more E's--E02 and E04 to be exact. One of my blog friends suggested making more shadow under Tilda's hairline. It seems to work really well, once I got used to the darker look of it.

I tried another one of those hat pins. I'd like to try more--I saw one with a mini charm hanging from the top, cute! I will have to look for some charms small enough.

Here is the inside of my easel card. I had not made one for awhile--I really enjoy making them!

And a better view of the front. Thanks a bunch for looking and happy stampin' this weekend! Lisa :-)

My Pink and Yellow Magnolia!

Good morning! I have made a card for the NEW MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE BLOG! Their challenge this time is for Pink and Yellow. This is a birthday card for my DMIL. 

I've been working on my shading with my Copics. Using three together make a real difference. . .now to get three of every color. . . :-)

I also tried my hand at making one of those beaded stick pins. It was really fun, and I'll be trying more soon!

Thank you for looking at my card this morning! I really enjoyed the challenge--thanks for the inspiration, ladies! Happy stampin'! Lisa :-)

A Card with Lavender and Lace!

Hello everyone! This week at the Shabby Tea Room, they have a really special challenge--to use lavender and lace. They have a really beautiful photo as inspiration. I just got a new Tilda from Donalda (she's selling some of her stamps, see here) and I thought this Tilda would be perfect in a lavender dress and socks. And actually, it turned out to be a Christmas card! I really enjoyed making this card--thank you for the inspiration, Shabby Tea Room!

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! It was raining and cold this morning, but by about 2pm the sun came out. Just in time for me and my little boy to do a bit of shopping at Hobby Lobby! There were scads of people in there, but we had fun and we found some cute things, like the angel charm beside my bow. I also found the jewelry section, which has tons of charms, wow! I didn't even think to look there for them. I originally was looking for some beads to make those beaded stick pins so many people have on their cards. And of course, I had to wander, and I found the beads and all sorts of cool stuff in their jewelry section. 

Anyway enough gabbing! :-) Here are the challenges I'd like to enter with this card. Thanks for looking and happy stampin'! Lisa :-)

My Card for This Week's Catch the Bug Challenge!

Happy Fall Ya'll! Who doesn't need a "thank you for being a friend" card any time of the year? I really love this little boy with the flower from Bugaboo Stamps!

 There are so many fall challenges out there, and I really love making fall cards. Why do we skip to Christmas right after Halloween? My kids told me the other day that Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday--can you believe that?! Sooo, I thought I'd "do up" fall and Thanksgiving around my house for a little while longer!

 I hope you are having nice weather where you are--but if not, I hope you're getting to be in your craft room! Thank you for looking today, and I'll be back soon! Lisa :-)
