Mushrooms & Daisies

Hello again! I think by now, it's pretty obvious to you that I love the color blue! Here, I have Tilda with Mushrooms and Daisies from the Turning Leaves Collection colored in Distress Ink Reinkers and Distress Markers for the grass.  I love Tilda's hair and the daisies she has on her hand. I am working on the same image but I'm coloring it with Copics. 
I'm not quite done but I'll share it as soon as it's complete.

The lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the DP is Paper Loft.  The inside of the card has the same layout and I stamped a mini version. All the edges are stained with DI Walnut Stain and the base and second layer was sewn by machine.



I hope you like my card for today.  I'll be back on Friday for another Just Magnolia Challenge.

Enjoy your day!

Turning Leaves

Hello everybody! I hope y'all are enjoying the summer or whatever is left of it! 
 I'd like to share some photos of the new Magnolia Ink Magazine Turning Leaves.  I got this in the mail two days ago, and I've been doing my happy dance since then. My cheeks are hurting from having this smile (crazy grin LOL) on my face.

This is the first time for me to have my projects published as part of the design team! (I had 1 project published when I won one of the Magnolia Ink contests.) I'm so excited about this issue and it makes me really proud to be part of the team. I still consider myself as a newbie...not only with Magnolia, but also with crafting, stamping, card making, and coloring as a whole.  It was September last year when I tried  stamping and everything just went on from there. And I'm really really thankful!

Back to the magazine...
The card on the cover is made by Debbie Dolphins.
 On pages  30-31, you will find my Autumn Fun banner.
 My Autumn Wind Shaker card  is on page 40.


Thank you so much for following me and for visiting my blog, for your lovely comments  and words of encouragements.  You have been an inspiration to me from the day I started blogging.
And again, from the bottom of my heart

THANK YOU!

Tilda's Family 2

This is my 2nd Tilda's Family card. The first one I made can be found HERE. I used the same images but masked it on the opposite side. I colored this image over a month ago and I almost forget about it.  Good thing I had some new papers that matched the image.

This card is on it's way to California...to a good friend of mine 
who just gave birth to a healthy baby boy.


 In the inside of the card is a tag and at the back of the tag is where I wrote my message.



One more look...

Thanks for dropping by!

Hugs,
Mae
