Crafty Angels - Just Magnolia - Friday Sketchers - ABC

Happy Monday!! Well the kids are back in school after the mid-term, Halloween parties are over with and today I'm hoping for some sort of normality to return. Again, I have a long post today.. but I hope you will enjoy it :)

I have a couple of cards to share with you. The first is my DT challenge for Crafty Angels, which was a sketch by Kate. All the supplies used were from my DT kit. The papers are PIGGY Tales and the cardstock is Core'dinations. I just love the big Burst out Brads by Karen Foster. The ones I've used are Mirrors & Jewels. The tiny lavendar pearls are from Kaisercraft.

My Kitchen Tilda is from Magnolia's Yummy for your Tummy collection. I coloured her using copic markers. I distressed the edges of my cardtock with antique linen distress ink and I edged them with vintage photo.

Tools used: MS Zig-Zag border punch - curved rectangle, circle and scalloped circle  nestabilities - Cuttlebug - Script embossing folder. 


My second card is for Just Magnolia who asked for Monochrome, Friday Sketchers with sketch #76 and ABC Challenges with G is for Green (and my card is certainly green, lol)

I'm (im)patiently awaiting the Magnolia Winter kit so I've used Tilda with Tinsel from last year. I've coloured her using copic markers. I've edged all of my papers using vintage photo distress ink.

I added a little touch of stickles to the tinsel for some sparkle :)

Tools used: cuttlebug, snowflake embossing folder.

A little randomness...

On Saturday we went to my cousin's house for a Halloween Party. We all agreed to bring something homebaked and 'halloween-y'. This was my contribution..

These are just little vanilla cupcakes and I used  milk & white chocolate to make a spiderweb design on the top. I think I did OK with the challenge, and they certainly disappeared quickly!

You have been busy Sandie, your cakes look a treat and both cards are gorgeous. I've enjoyed a quiet day now the kids are back at school. Bit to much though, cant motivate to cook the dinner or anything LOL

Gorgeous cards Sandie, fabulous Kitchen Tilda, love the colours and papers and those brads are 'to die for'. Your JM card is stunning, love Tilda and your colours and colouring are fab. Lovely details especially the snowflake charm. I'm still impatiently waiting for my summer Magnolias - I think it's time I gave up and just hope my winter ones arrive lol.
hugs Heather xx
