Something For You Tilda Vintage Xmas

I have been busy shopping for Christmas and I am DONE!
Back to card making
 Well at least enjoy the only granddaughter I have.

 I watercolored Tilda with Aged Mahogoney, Forest Moss, Old paper  and walnut.  The paper is Simple Stories "25 Days of Christmas"  I used a Spellbinders die "Fleur De Lis" behind Tilda from the same paper.  Then I sprayed the front of the card with Gold Glimmer Mist from "Tattered Angels"
 This is the Magnolia Doohickey Tag combined with Papertrey die from tiny tags.  I used the same paper as the card. One piece of DP for this 1 card, awesome.
 Here is a angel so that you can see the die and snowflake.
 The inside is from the DP and I added the snowflakes and the writing space shape from the Cricut cartridge "Art Philosophy" from Close to My Heart.
I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks for stopping by!!

Winter Tilda Birthday Card

Been busy with sick children and I had to move my craft room again. Our lives are always busy and we do not sit down much.   Then we added a puppy to the mix of animals we already have, he is a chewer so he is not allowed in my craft room.
My 3 year old thought he should help me with this card and there are a few mishaps and so after fixing them, this is my Winter Tilda.

 She is colored with Copics and I used Stampin Up paper and ribbon in Baja Breeze and Marina Mist.
 This is crepe paper from Melissa Frances swirled and then a star, snowflake and pearl are put on top of it.

 I have various paper flowers from Wild Orchid and Melissa Frances and Webster Pages Cameo pin. I also dotted liquid pearls in different places to accent.

The tag and writing shape is from my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

My 3 year old and his new Pug puppy Dozer.  He is named after Tractors that my son loves, he also named his sister-in-law Popper after a John Deere tractor. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is nice.

Glittering Tilda in Plum for Xmas

I am using a new Glittering Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection. She is so easy to color and to be creative with so I am having fun with her a bit.  I put the big Santa Hat on her from the same collection.  It is a big hat to fill.

I invested in more Copic markers and they are very saturated in ink so blending was interesting for me.  
skin: E0000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: E23, E33, E35, E53
Apron: W00, W1, W5
Tinsel: Y21
Dress: RV63, RV66, RV69
 The Big Santa Hat has Bakers Twine tied into a ribbon from Jillebean

The inside I wanted to look like a present and the middle is a snowflake made by my Cricut, (I bet you know the cartridge) LOL and then a swirl of Melissa Frances crepe paper garland.

I used the new swirl too-hickey and some snow as well as my favorite paper this year, Magnolia Sweet Dream Collection, PLUM.

I went to a moving sale and bought a industrial juicer and meat slicer for very little money, they were only used one time.  We made Apple, orange and lemon juice this morning.  I made apple cider with the apple juice and a little pulp. Then simmered it with Sonoma cider mullings.
Next is slicing beef for Beef Jerky.  I do not use pre-mixed jerky mix, I have my own recipes but to have thin sliced meat will be a lot better for dehydrating.
Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Crafting.
