Just a few more card fronts....

In my little chips of time, I've done a few more card fronts for Diana. Believe me, my crafting time is more like Morse Code with dots and dashes. LOL! Such is life for me these days I guess.

The children are busy and active. Jordan will start up with swimming lessons again on Tuesday evening - something I had to drop while Bill was in the hospital and during his convalescence here at home. He goes for another follow up appointment and possibly get a walking cast put on. That will free him up from those blasted crutches...wooohooo!

So, in the dots and dashes of my days, I've managed to put a few more card fronts to send Diana for CHA coming up next month!

Here is what I've come up with....

This is #293 Tilda with a small gift Mini...

I used Magnolia Butterfly Collection dp with SU Taken with Teal and Bazzill white. Sentiment is from SU. All the flowers are from WOC, ribbon is from my stash. I didn't keep track of the copics I used to color her with. Butterflies are from various punches I have.

This next is also a birthday card front using #233 Congratulation Tilda Mini. The DP is from my stash, the card stock is from SU. Pearls and ribbon from my stash. Sentiment again is from SU. I used the Magnolia Vintage Lace die to an accent. Pearls are from my stash.

Oh I love how this one turned out! The dp is some digital I had on hand from Bearly Mine Designs. I did the window panel #532 Romantic Window and cut out all the small window pieces. I then attached some acetate behind it. Then I colored #293 Mini Tilda with Small gift and popped her panel up behind the window. I like the way she is peeking out through the window. I added the scalloped panel popped up also and then laid it all down on a white panel. The flowers are all from WOC. I put little #174 Edwin wants a hug in the corner and then used a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly that I won in their big give away.

This last piece is actually a belly band which I made to go around an envelope box which contained her birthday card. For this image I embossed the very pretty #609 Shooting Stars and then stamped #241 Dancing Party Tilda Mini - isn't she so cute! The sentiment is from SU, the pearls are from my stash.

I'm always so grateful that you take time out of your busy schedules to visit my blog. Hopefully one day soon, life will regain a normal routine and I'll have the time to visit your blogs and leave you some love.

  16. Beautiful card fronts! I think that the mini magnolias are just a much "work" as the large ones... if not more time consuming because you have to be so careful not to color outside the tiny areas. You do an amazing job!

    Hope your husband starts to feel better soon.
