HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANYA!

Ok so I'm LATE but had no idea that I was so it was all good until a few minutes ago.  LOL!!  Ahhh they always say better late then never right?  So if you got here from Tara & friends you're heading in the right direction. 

Just wanting to wish you a very happy birthday Tanya!  I hope you have a wonderful day and get spoiled!!  You deserve it!!

Not much to say about this card but mostly cuz I want to hurry up and publish it.  LOL!!  However, if you do blow it up you can see the Stickles that I added to each layer to make it sparkle.  Well Tanya at least you'll get to see it IRL soon!!  Hugs!!


Now on to Cheri's most hilarious creation!!  Love that girls sense of humor OMG!!

I'm also entering this card into these challenges:

Wild Orchid Challenge - sketch with twist of birthday theme

Cupcake Craft Challenge - shabby/sparkle - I'm hoping if you click on the picture and enlarge it you can see all the Stickles I've added to each layer.  I distressed my layers first and then added the Stickles.  It looks really cool IRL.  Dang photo's!

Magnolia Mania #18 - Ribbon or lace and I've snuck in a bit of both!  What's a card without lace?!!

3D or Papertole

Today's post is super long and full of pictures but I'm sure you'll feel quite satisfied when you're done.  LOL!!  At Magnolia Down Under we want to see your 3D or papertole projects.  I didn't go crazy with this challenge and only added 2 butterflies that are 3D on to my tent card.


Here's a side view of my butterflies:


Part of the reason I took it easy on my challenge card was because I really wanted to showcase these gorgeous papers from Denise, a fellow MDUC member, who makes them herself!  These lovely papers are called The Couture Collection and can be found at Meg's Garden under a tab at the top called "What's New & Exciting".



Aren't they pretty?!  In real life they have a really pretty sheen to them.

Here are some more cards from fellow MDUC members who have used the papers.  Aren't they just gorgeous?  That outta feed your eyes for awhile.  LOL!!  If you click on each of the girl's names, it'll take you to the post showcasing the card with details.  



Please visit Denise's Passion for Papers to view more samples from the very creative paper maker herself!

CLP Sketch Challenge #38

Have you had your CLP Sketch this month?!!  It's like having your V8....ha ha ha!!  Cuz it's good for your health!!  So just "DO IT" for those of you who are familiar with the Nike commercials.  You think I'm watching too much tv??  LMAO!

ANYWAY, I am using a Magnolia image this month...ya, I know I shocked you didn't I?  2 of them in fact!!  Thank you Cheri!  Also, I'm just lovin' these word tiles.  I could just kick myself for not buying more.  Eventually you end up having to be very creative with your wording.  LOL! 


So on my last post I had mentioned that my mojo wasn't working.  I stand corrected.  It was working but it was a very looooong drawn out process - OH - MY - GAWD.  Took me over a stinkin' week to make that card....that's just not right.  But this one only took me a morning and even tho it doesn't quite feel like one of my cards, I don't mind how it turned out.  Something is wrong with me tho.  I'm just not into making cards and I hope that changes soon.  I miss it.  

Enough about my whining!  I really did enjoy this sketch but I always love Chelsea's sketches and here is yet another fabulous one.


I hope you get a chance to swing over to CLP Sketch Challenge blog and check out the amazing creations from the 1st of the month as well as this mid month reminder.  OH and this month CLP is being sponsored by The Beary Scrap and offering a $20 voucher for their online store.  Sweet or what?!!
