Quickie Pink Tag

Hello everyone, Hope you have a great week ahead!  Busy, Busy and fun preparing for Thanksgiving with my kids and hubby this week!  Once again I have to put my creativity addiction away for the week and get down to cooking and entertaining.  There is such a strong drive in me the past days to create cards, I am out of control! haha

Here is a quick tag I made

I used Webster's Pages from Christmas Story and the coordinating envelope to make the tag.

Tilda is colored in Distressed Inks and liquid pearls for the snow.  I also used the new Poinsettia stamp from Magnolia at the top. I love the way this one swirls.

I used LaLa Land poinsettia,  Memory Box star die and Magnolia doohickey snowflake dies to embellish this tag.  A bit of cheesecloth is behind my image and Webster's Pages ribbon finishes the bottom of the tag.

Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving and for my friends who do not celebrate, wishing you a wonderful day too!  Thank you for the sweet comments on my blog!
Hugs Kelly

My Besties Grandmother

As a grandmother of 3 darlings, my heart is full of love for them even though they are far away.  Us grandma's are softies and also barracuda's when we protect them.  We also have so much happiness and joy when we play with them because we simply send them home when they are done, well it really is because we are more relaxed and seasoned.
I want to pay a tribute to Grandmothers of all ages before the holidays as we make them more special and create great memories for our grandchildren.

I made a tag using a Sherri Baldy image that reminded me of my mom, always had her arms full when she came over for a visit.  Sherri herself just became a grandmother also, congrats!

On the right side I made a sentiment sign with Prima resin frame.  Sherri Baldy heart die is at the top of the frame

On the right side is a pocket so that you can insert a message.  I adorned the pocket with LaLa Land butterfly die and Sherri Baldy heart die  The edging is chunky glitter in Champagne

I used Copics to color the image

The bottom floral is Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and 3 sets of ribbons

Wishing all current and future Grandma's a lot of joy and happiness over the holidays playing with those kids, they keep you young ya know!

It's Cold Outside Tilda

My first Christmas card of the season using It's Cold Outside Tilda from Magnolia.  I broke open my Webster's Pages papers "Christmas Story" that I purchased last year. I am a paper person so my whole card evolves around showing off the papers.

Magnolia doohickey snowflakes, Christmas Lace and LaLa Land poinsettia's make up the dies I used on the front.

Tilda is colored in Distressed Inks and while she was still wet I did the Frantage Shabby White by Stampendous, it adhered to all the wet areas around her which was a happy surprise look.

Always Believe is part of the paper pack from Webster's Pages.

The Inside I made a pocket with the envelope from Webster's Pages and inserted my youngest childs school photograph, after they take it out I made a tag using Magnolia doohickey and 2 Magnolia stamps. 

Thank you for visiting me and taking the time to leave comments for me to enjoy.  I need to go back to the dungeon and do more accounting as our new accountant already sent me a reminder! lol

Have a awesome day!

Find Your Inner Artist

Using 1 sheet of Tilda paper, I was inspired to make this very girly canvas. Prima resin is especially girly so that settled the theme.

I used paper doilies in pink and white for 2 edges and some lace and pleated tulle

The corner is Chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company and I frantaged it in Shabby Pink

I used Tim Holtz Melange and pleated it to make my cone shape and for the inside of the frame.

I have a piece of wedding appliqué glued to the side thanks to my by Cathy-Lynn

Close up of the main focus and the words of inspiration.  Those are liquid pearls around the waist on the dress form.

The angles of dimension

I will probably give this one to the school to auction but it will be hard to let it go. lol

Thank you for your sweet comments and visiting my blog, I really appreciate it!
Hugs, Kelly
