Thinking of You this Christmas

The new Magnolia-licious Challenge blog is hosting their very first ever challenge which is 'Playful Pink & Happy Yellow'. I also chose to join in the fun at Magnolia-licious Highlites. The amazing Barb Hardeman challenged us to make a shaker card. Now I haven't made a shaker card in years so I had to dust the old cobwebs off of my brain first. LOL But I think it turned out cute. Tilda is thinking of you as she sits in front of a snowy country scene resting her arm on a candy cane. Doesn't she look dreamy? LOL

This is one of my most FAVorite Magnolia stamps called 'Longing Tilda' which you can find at Diana's Magnolia-licious store. I used my Copics to color her.

A cute Pirate for you!

This cute little Pirate is for my granddaughter Alexis (20) just because I love her so much & she 'gets' my cardmaking passion. She's an amazingly talented artist & can appreciate........even my feeble attempts at art. LOL She's so very sweet & loving. She loves pirates (& Johnny Depp of course) & her dream is to work for Disney some day. By the way......her FAVorite color is purple (with black at a close second).

Anywho..........this cutie patootie stamp is called Jolly Roger Tilda & I see that Diana has her in stock right now. You can pick her up at the Magnolia-Licious store.

I've colored her with Copics (numbers below). Can you see the moon shining over her shoulder? LOL I had so much fun making this card. This is the inside (before I wrote a personal message to my sweet Baby Girl). This Word Art is available at Create with TLC from a set called "Wishes". Paulette is so very generous with her beautiful Word Art & vintage graphics on her blog. If you haven't visited her blog yet.....then you just don't know what you're missing.
