Not altogether idle...

Hi all. It seems that I've been quiet for a few days, but really I've been at work behind the scenes. I was asked to make some more bookmarks and another Matchbox Mini Notepad as a special order, so that's kept me going. On top of that I have a nasty cold that laid me low for most of yesterday and today.

This will be just a short post and I'm not feeling very chatty.

Here are the note pads:

On this one I used #340 FAIRY DUST TILDA from the Fairytale Collection, at Magnolia-licious. She is still available, though I don't see a picture of her. I also used some dp from Magnolia called Peacock from the Bon Voyage Collection. She is colored with Copics and a bit of distress ink.

This is #3075 TILDA IN CHRISTMAS COAT from the Christmas 2010 Collection and I pared her with some Magnolia dp from the Vintage Christmas Collection. Tilda is currently not available in the full size but is available in the Mini. She is for sale in my ETSY shop and would make a great stocking stuffer for some lucky little girl!

Here are the three little bookmarks:

This is #149 SANTA HUG. He is colored with copics and distress inks and I added a bit of beaded trim around the edge to make him more festive. He is available only in the Mini size.

Here is #109 TILDA AND EDWIN SKATING from the New Years 2008 collection. After coloring them I ran them through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing folder so that it looks like snow coming down. I used waterfall Stickles for the ice. This image is available in both full size and Mini.

Lastly, here is#3071 SNOWY HUGS. This image is available only in the Mini size at Magnolia-licious.

That's all I have for today. I hope to be back soon with another creation for you to see.

Blessings and Hugs,
