Magnolia Tilda "Lucky Me" Hand Made Card


Happy St. Patrick's Day Sweet Readers,

Are you wearing your green today? I love St. Patrick's Day! It is such a happy holiday! I'm getting ready to get my corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots all ready for cooking! LOL The best part of the meal is having the left over corned beef for yummy reuben sandwiches, LOL.

Today, I'm showcasing a card that isn't necessarily a St. Patrick's Day card. In my mind, it's an "I Love You" card. The colors didn't show well in the photo. I so need a new camera and have no clue what to get. My old camera is a Canon EOS Rebel. It stopped transferring the photos to my computer. It still takes photos, though. Anyway, I looked at Canon cameras, and there are so many that I didn't know what would be close to what I had. I live in a small city that has no camera shop, so I'm dead in the water at this point.

OK, back to the photo, LOL. My colors are a soft pink and green with brown accents. Here it is:



I tried to give my little Tilda reddish hair - I sort of did, LOL! The inside if finished on both sides with additional flowers, tags, ribbon, and die cuts.

Magnolia Lovely Rose Tilda Sending Hugs Card


Hello Sweet Readers,

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your visit means a lot! Thank you! I'm feeling very tender today. I'm always on the verge of tears. I think I'm just stressed over a lot of different things - family, government, responsibilities, life in general. Please send good thoughts my way!

I have a delightful card to share with you today. I hope you like it. I wanted something that was sort of vintage, but not quite. I think I got to that point, LOL. Here it is:



The card colors are cream and red with touches of green. I had the beautiful embossed background paper in my scrapbooking papers. It is so pretty. I finally got the rose colored nicely, LOL! My roses needed work - always!

There are two delightful elements - one solid and one that has the middles cut out. I thought they would look great as decorative stems. I got them from

Swedish House Crafts


They are Gummiapan Dies. Here are the names and links: Flower Allium (cut out centers) and Crassula (the one with the solid leaves). They just add dimension and extension that is so nice. Both dies come with a leaf die as well. I did use one leaf in the upper left corner of my card. The prices are sooooooo reasonable, too! Check them out!

Here is a shot of the interior panels:



You can see that I added the Gummiapan dies once again. Can you see the texture on the background paper? You likey?
