A Maggie Challenge

I was so excited when I participated in a Kit Swap through the Magnolia Group and received this little cutie…I can Fly Tilda from Karyn Nale. (Thanks so much Karyn for the kit!)   It is one image that I do not own so I had lots of fun coloring her up.  In the kit from Karyn came the papers that I used as well, except for the desert Sand and Colonial White cardstock.  I also added the crochet flower and the little flower bud. 

I am also participating in the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS Pink and Yellow CHALLENGE.  You can see that here   I have never participated in a challenge before so this was extra fun. The only stipulation was that I had to use pink and yellow. So here is my card.

Copics used are:
Skin: E000, E00, E02
Clothes: Y23, Y21, R83, R81
Hair: E57, E55, E53, E51
Shoes: E35, E33, E31, W4, W2

All Through the House...

 This is a really cute board book that I made.  I actually made it to do a class but I have been having some medical problems this fall so I think I will just post it as artwork and I will fill it up with pictures that I take this Christmas season.
One thing I would like to point out is the board book itself.  These are really easy to decorate for any occasion. You can find them here on my website.  They are a very sturdy book. The pages are strong and I don't think you can bend them if you want to.  Great for long time keeping.  I think the next one I decorate will be for my new baby granddaughter we are expecting in February.  I cannot wait! 

The supply List is really short for this book and all supplies are from Close To My Heart.

Take Time to Smell the Flowers

 It is time for another edition of Maggie Mondays. 
I really liked the way this little cutie turned out.  Her hair was a little tricky to get the right shadows in it but I am really happy with the coloring on her.  I also colored her to match the Caboodle papers from Close To My Heart.  That is a great thing about the copic markers; you can match them to almost any papers.  I also used my R22 Copic to color the white pearls to match.  And I used my newest punch from Martha Stewart…the linked trim.  When I seen this one in the store I immediately knew I was going to weave a strip  paper through it. 
Here is the inside of the card.

Ta Da!

Are you like me and cannot remember when things in your life happens, or when you bought some things?  Other than when we built our house I cannot remember when other things happen.  So I decided to make an album of when things happen in my life.  This is one of those layouts.  When we purchased our penning of the greatest things we ever acquired!  It helps in keeping my family safe when they are working with cattle.  I always worry about them when they are out doing that sort of stuff. 
I took the layout from our new how to book, Magic.

Born to Shop!

 Welcome to Maggie Monday!  This Monday I have made an easel card.  These are quite fun to make and they sit nice on the shelve for display.  I used the Tilda Goes shopping stamp from Magnolia.  I also used LOTS of pearls on this card. 
Here is a close up of the bottom half of the card.  It says "little moments make life great".  I also used my Copic Air Brush system.  I have had this for ages and only used it a few times, so I thought I would use it on here to give the half circles some color.
