I just recently received a wonderful parcel with the latest collection of "Year of the Animal" mini images. I have been having a blast coloring up a storm. I had a few projects worked up that only needed the images colored, attached and ready for blogging. So here is the first one.
Have you been to Magnolia-licious lately? OMG! There is a whole lot of wonderful there. New images regular sized and mini, new dies, new flowers and such a huge collection of everything you need for your paper crafting. Also, please check out Patty Jo's delicious blog. You know she is the Queen of Dies. Her Dr. Monday projects are always incredibly creative.
I only have a couple of pictures to show you this week, so without further ado, here ya go...
|This is A21 Tilda with Lace Pants. Such a sweetie!|
|This is just a quick peek at the inside of the card.|
Okay, now, I want to show you a little something else. I was recently asked if I could make something pretty for our Mission team to take to bless the 17+ ladies who work at an orphanage in Uganda. These sweet women are making huge sacrifices to care for the orphaned children. All of these women are native Ugandan women. So I got really busy and made up a gift bag for each one and three extra. In a previous post, I shared the mini Post it Note holders I had made. I popped each one into small draw-string bags. Then I made a bunch of Tic Tac Booklet Holders. So I really wanted to make something I could color on, and decided to make each lady a 3 x 3 Post it Note holder. So for the next few weeks I will be posting several of those at the end of each post. I hope you will enjoy what I've done.
|My first prototype. Here I have used #306 Mermaid Tilda. I also used the "out of the box" technique so she would fit beautifully on the front flap. The lace at the bottom is from my stash.|
|Prototype 2, I just had to add some flowers. Not at all practical to throw into your purse, but delightful to look at. I used #443 Bunny Prince Orjan. The lace here is also from my stash.|
|This is A2 Edwin with Tin Tin the Dog. Soooo cute!|
|Here we have A17 Flower Tilda with Bow Knot. I'm tellin' ya! These are just too stinkin' cute!|
