My Dear Sister Girlfriends!

Charlene aka scrappygma (you can see the darling fall card she made on her blog) & Kathe aka Katz Designz & I (you know who I am...LOL) enjoyed some time together this past week. What a blast we had!!! Charlene came from Arizona & spent several days with me (I'm in southern California). Kathe joined us on the first 2 days....she just lives a hop, skip & a jump from me. We stamped & punched & used my new Nestabilities and had such a good time!!! Can't wait to do it again!

I just wanted to share my joy with you all! Wish we could have all been together! 'Course my house wouldn't hold all of you.......LOL.........but we could rent a huge hall or something. LOL

Tilda in her pink party dress

I sure hope you're not getting "too" tired of seeing this adorable little girl named Tilda. She can be found at Diana's shoppe HERE. She is such a sweet little girl. I think she loves living at my house with all of us girls. LOL (My hubby is the lone male in our household........even the dog is female.......too bad, so sad for him.....LOL)

I really do own other Tilda stamps but we have had a ton of girlie October birthdays so I've been having some fun spreading her little cheer around.

I made this card for my granddaughter's 14th birthday. I can't believe our baby is 14 now! My goodness they sure grow up fast. Her sister is already 19! Wow! Does that make me ancient? LOL (don't answer that.....teeheehee)

Side note: I always forget to add the white highlights to her cheeks. So please......just use your imagination! LOL always.........thanks for looking & for leaving your wonderful comments.

Purple Durple Tilda

This is another birthday card that I made for a dear friend using the Tilda holding balloons stamp found at Diana Crick's Magnolia store HERE. As you can tell.......these little girls have captured my heart. I get such a kick out of coloring her with my Copic markers.

Thanks for looking.

When you wish upon a star.............

What does that remind you of? Jiminy Cricket? Mickey Mouse? Donald Duck? Disneyland? ME? LOL got it..........I'm going to Disneyland!

***UPDATE***.........we had a BLAST at Disneyland yesterday! So much fun! We laughed & giggled & laughed & giggled some more! LOL And guess what? It barely sprinkled......but it's pouring today! Thank You, Lord!!!!

I've had a love affair with Disneyland since I was a young girl & saw it open for the first time (yes........I'm THAT old......LOL)! I grew up next door to Disneyland & remember seeing the fireworks every night in the summertime. Such good memories!

My BFF & I are going to the Happiest Place on Earth tomorrow to celebrate my birthday. It's supposed to RAIN (figures...........the ONE day of rain we get this year just HAS to fall on my birthday........LOL) but it won't dampen our spirits! We'll have a ball!


Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

Sharing a Flower Tut..........

While blog surfing today I stumbled across a flower tut & an amazingly talented flower maker........would that make her a florist or a flower designer.........hhhhhmmmmm........not sure what to call her but her flowers are amazing.

The flower tut is on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog HERE .

The oh so talented Michele has her own site.....My Little Space On The WWW. Scroll down to see her amazing floral creations. Just beautiful! I'm just going to HAVE to get one of those Sizzix Flower Layers dies. Oh more thing to add to my "MUST HAVE" list. LOL

Just wanted to share a wee bit of inspiration with you all.

This is my Mingle card that I made for my Magnolia-licious Yahoo group for September. The only requirement was to have a button on my project so I added these sweet little heart buttons. I'm getting it out a wee bit late due to our recent trip to New York & the horrible head cold I brought home with me. OY!

I'm entering this card in the Magnolia Down Under challenge #23 to use one or more Buttons along with a Magnolia image. I just love these sweet little girls named Tilda. She was colored with my Copic markers. I used Tilda holding a single flower found at Diana's shop here.

I just love using buttons on my cards. I believe the buttons are from the Jesse James collection found at Michael's.

Thanks for looking & I appreciate each & every comment.
