Hopeful at Wild Orchid Challenge and WINNER!!



A very happy Monday to each of you! I hope that your week turns out to be very special. It is 90F (33C) here today and we are NOT accustomed to this kind of heat here in the mountains. Gosh, it is amazing but a good enough reason to skip my Vitamin D session out in the sun...hahaha Tomorrow we are supposed to have some much cooler weather so I am keeping my fingers crossed!

This fortnight over at the Wild Orchid Challenge our theme is PUNCH IT OUT--using dies and/or punches on our creations! As always, there is a very nice surprise from the lovely people at Wild Orchid Crafts so come on over and join in with us!! You will be in the draw for this marvelous surprise!!!

For my card I used the darling little Hopeful by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps. She was stamped on X-press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a couple of sparkly Self Adhesive Rhinestones for her necklace. The base of the card and the double matting is all Bazzill and the DP is from the MME Lime Twist-Life of the Party collection. The swirl is Memory Box. For the horizontal I used a wide grosgrain topped with a double flat bow made with 1" Organza Ribbon. The cornerpieces are from the Whimsy Corner Dies Set. All the flowers are from WOC: Curly Wild Rose, Lilies, and Tulips. I also added two Decorative Crown Pins and a lovely butterfly pin which was a specially made gift from my sweet friend Gunilla. The card was finished with Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften all of the corners.

I hope you like my creation and will decide to conme on over to Wild Orchid Challenge and PUNCH IT OUT with us!!!!

Tilda Winding Flowers at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and WINNER and SWEET STUFF!!!



Happy Friday everyone!!! Gosh, what a wonderful week this has been!! I am back into Tai Chi and my regular gym training and all is well. I have no pain or problems with my shoulder and I am so fortunate that no surgery is suggested for the moment....And YES, I am behaving!!!! hahah

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are being hosted by the very talented Mo who has given us the challenge of PURPLE and WHITE. Although my card has more colors I think it will show that you can also use other colors as long as the main colors are purple and white! There is a wonderful prize this week so I hope you will come on over and join in with us this week!!

For my card I used the very cute Tilda Winding Flowers from the New Summer Memories Collection available now at Magnolia-licious. Please have a peek at these cuties as well as all of the MINIS from the same collection. The image was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, using some Stickles for a bit of sparkle to the flowers. I want to apologize because, for whatever reason, my camera will just not picture the purples correctly...but I can assure you that the colors really do match...lolol. The base and all double matting of the card is Bazzill and the DP is from the Best Creations A Walk In The Garden Collection which was a gift from the sweet Suzan...Thank you so much, Sweetie...just love those sparkly papers!!! For the horizontal I used some Purple Organza Ribbon to anchor a sweet silver birdhouse charm to repeat the motif from the DP. The floral arrangement is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: Cherry Blossoms and Heather. To finish the front I used some Self-Adhesive Rhinestones to soften some corners.

WINNER of SWEET STUFF!!!



Thank you all for dropping by and trying for this SWEET STUFF but we must let Mr Random.org make the decision and the WINNER is.....

Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!



A very happy Monday to each of you! I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are beginning a splendid week!

And gosh I am enjoying the playtime after the past couple of weeks!! I start physical therapy on Wednesday and I am so happy that there is no more pain nor numbness...wooohooooooo!!

This fortnight the challenge is a real fun one.....ANYTHING GOES....so come on over and join in with us and I know you will be excited when you see the lovely prize which is always provided by the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts shop.

I made a Shabby Chic journal using the precious Rose Garden Tilda from the new Summer Memories Collection over at Magnolia-licious. This collection is also available as MINIS. The image was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Promarkers and Copics, adding some StarDust Stickles for a little sparkle.

The upper floral arrangement is resting on a MS doily and a Pink Crystal Heart Stem. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 3/8" Trellis Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Carnations, Aster Daisy, and Heather. To finish the journal I used a couple of the Self-Adhesive Pearls and gorgeous Silk Ribbon to tie the journal closed.

It just will not do what I tell it to!!! lol I will be going to the orthopedic surgeon on Thursday so maybe this is the answer...they still don't know what is causing the problem....rotator cuff??? nerve damage??? or OLD AGE (my guess)!!! hahahhaha

So this is as close as I have come to making a card this week...you can see that I have started but that's about as close as I could manage... and I am using that darling little Hopeful by the amazing Sylvia Zet for the latest collection at Whimsy Stamps. Isn't she a real little cutie!!!!
