Totally Tilda with hearts!

That's right you heard it here! The challenge this week over at Totally Tilda is to use hearts on your project. And we don't want one dinky little heart on the bottom corner hiding under your ribbon... we want to see lotsa hearts on there gang! Here is mine:
There is an embossed heart and two stitched hearts and of course I used my MS scalloped heart border punch! Oh yeah, Jemima Tilda is holding a heart too! Yes, that is what Trisha called her and I guess she does look like Aunt Jemima! Perfect in pink...I think!
The flowers are Wild Orchid, the leaves are my MS leaf punch. Tilda is colored with Copics and the papers are he he he he he.... K&Company!

The tag here is the one I made with my Cold Porcelain clay recipe. You can find the complete instructions on how to make your own at the Prairie Fairy Blog.

So head on over to Totally Tilda and get your entry in for the Tilda with Hearts challenge now!

I am entering my card over at Magnolia Down Under as the theme is wet or dry embossing. 

xoPickles!

Baby Baby with Totally Tilda!

Well it is a brand new challenge over at Totally Tilda and it is a good one! The theme this round is Baby cards! Suzie has some yummy valentine's themed prizes for you but I won't give it away you will have to head over to the blog yourself to find out what it is!!!

What you can see here however is my card!
My papers are......oh lets see, K&Company of course! The flowers, Wild Orchid, the sentiment SU, the butterfly courtesy of good ole Martha Stewart. 
I did a nice lace feature here and could not for the life of me find my embroidery floss. ALL I could find was candle wicking. The most hilarious part of this story is that it has LEAD CORE! Imagine...me giving someone a baby card with LEAD on it! Oh for shame! Well, it made the bow nice and easy to shape heheheheh!


and.....this cute little baby bottle was made by none other than me! I used the cold porcelain clay recipe which can be found at the Prairie Fairy Blog and I colored the clay with pink acrylic paint. I shaped it and used a crochet hook to imprint the lines on it. I then rubbed pink liquid pearls on it after it dried. Ta DA..cute pink baby bottle!

Well, I hope you like it and make sure you head over to TTC and get a baby card in there and to PFB to check out that clay recipe!

I am entering this over at Just Magnolia where the challenge is My favorite things, and well, I have lots of favorite things on here. My K&Company papers, my wild orchid flowers and my MS punches oh yeah and my new fave fun stuff, the porcelain clay. WAIT, it has a baby on it, everyone's favorite, well almost everyone! hahahhaha! At Wild Orchid it is a sketch for you to follow.

Totally Tilda Ribbons and Roses...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Can you believe another year just flew by! I think I am still in shock!

The first challenge of the year over a TOTALLY TILDA is...
RIBBONS AND ROSES.
The girls have really outdone themselves too so you really have to go and check out all their blogs!

Here is mine!
I am not sure why but I had a heck of a time to photograph this card. I used my fancy stitches on my pfaff! Lucky thing I have cards to sew... ROFL! The papers are from...you don't say...K&Company. I tell you they need to start giving me shares in the company!
I was so impressed with meself, ar be dar! I used a scalpel to cut around the rose image on the DP so I could tuck the paper piece with the ribbon on it underneath. Aren't I just a smart pickle!

The butterfly is a punch by MS, flowers are wild orchids. Tilda is colored with my prisma pencils and I glossed her hair up with liquid glass which is glorified crazy glue I think! hahahahhaha! The sentiment I made in photoshop. I couldn't pick between my close up shots so... what the heck, here are both!


Well, I hope you like it and I sure hope you head over to Totally Tilda and get an entry in for the Ribbons and Roses challenge! I am entering this over at  Just Magnolia where the challenge is anything goes!
