Yippee Skippee!

I have some exciting news to share! I just found out today that I've been selected to be on the Create with TLC's Design Team (DT). I am so very honored to be chosen. This is my very first time to be on a DT so I'm a little nervous but very excited about this new opportunity.

Paulette with Create with TLC is so giving with her free vintage graphics & sentiments. She has fun little games too. If you haven't visited her amazing are really missing out. You can also shop for graphics, digi stamps & more at her online store HERE.

My card features Paulette's cute "Sliders" charms. I reduced one for Tilda to wear on her necklace & added some Glossy Accents to give it a bit of a shine. The other Sliders are on the left side panel......"Live Fully" & "Smile Often" those are words to live by. You can purchase these "Sliders" & more at Create with TLC HERE.

"Waiting Tilda" is a cute little Magnolia stamp I used for this card. I don't see her in stock right now but you could let Diana at Magnolia-licious know & she'll do her best to find her for you.

I used Copic markers to color Tilda (W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, E000, E00, E21, R20, E31, E34, E35, E37). DP (decorative paper) is from K&Co. Black & Ivory and DCWV La Creme stack. I glittered her purse, shoes & shopping bags with Stardust Stickles. The silver buttons are from Jolee's boutique (don't you just love her cute little stickers) with a bit of tied black jute. The silver glitter dots are from Dress It Up and the black & gray ribbon is from my LSS (local scrapbook store).

Thanks so much for joining in my exciting news!

A hiking we will go........

I made this birthday card for my daughter (see her pic in the post below). She loves to hike in our local mountains. Last week she did her personal best of 15 miles........that's 3 times around The Loop. Wowsers! There's no way I could even do one mile. LOL

Anywho.......I searched for just the perfect image to color for her special card & found this beauty. She's called Download Diva & you can find her at KennyK's downloads.

I also needed some mountains, trees, a sun (cuz my Baby Girl is all about the sun) & a critter or I found these all in Mary Fran's Nit Wits collections. I used scalloped borders to make the 'mountains'. Aren't the raccoon & little owl just too stinkin' cute!

This card was sooo much fun to make. A bit different for me but a lot of fun!

I colored her with these Copics: E000, E30, E11, E93, E34, E37, R20, R22, R81, R83, R85, C0, C1, C3, C5, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, B91, B93 & B97.

I used Distress Ink 'Brushed Corduroy' and Stardust & Diamond Stickles for the bling, bling.........what girl doesn't love bling. hahaha

I'm entering these challenges:
Creative Card Crew: Anything Goes
The Pixie Cottage: Sparkle & Shine
Stamp Something: Use something digi (I used NitWits graphics)

As always........thanks so much for looking.

Such a worthy cause.....

There is a WONDERFUL CHARITY called the FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION. They build, operate and supply homes around the US for military families to stay in while their loved ones are in the hospital or in rehabilitation. We are so very privileged to have the military support that we have in this country. They SACRIFICE the most precious gift of their LIVES every single day to defend and protect us.

Go to Suzanne Dean's blog to join in the cause & find out how you can get involved & possibly win a FABulous gift.

I just realized that today is my BLOGOVERSARY! LOL Two years of blogging fun with over 15,000 visitors. Thank you all so much for joining in the journey with me.
