Bicycle Mimi!

Hey gang!  We've been enjoying nice weather here for the past few days-haven't had to wear a jacket- I raked my front yard  and half of the back last night and can hardly move my arms today. Good thing I finished this card on Mon. night LOL! This super cute image is from Penny Black and her name is Mimi with bicycle or bicycle Mimi-I can't remember, but she's adorable and I think she fits perfectly with these Bo Bunny Vicki B papers! I love the colors in this collection!

So, I've been watching crocheting tutorials on You tube, as I've used my last crocheted flower on this card. To be honest, I think I can do it, but I'm scared to attempt it-anyone know where to buy little ones like this one and not on e-bay, 'cause they look huge there, as well as expensive.

I'm entering the following challenges with my card: Tuesday Throwdown (Use Eyelets or Brads), Anything Goes Challenge (pink and brown), Stamping Scrapping Central (Anything Goes), I Did It Creations! (1 image, 2 DPs and 3 embellies) I used ribbon, brads and flowers;  Hope u like! xox Trish:)

Happy Easter Tilda!

Hey all! yes, I'm posting another Tilda card-but this new Magnolia collection, Butterfly Dreams is just so cute, I can't help but want to show them off. 

My good friend Lori also posted a card earlier today with eggs in the perfect shade I could have and should have used, but what's eerie is that I cut the styrofoam eggs last night and took a break from completing it, because my lower back was aching so much! Turns out I have a kidney infection-not very wise of me to leave it so long!! It would have been cool had I finished it, because we are always using similar colors or the same image, and we would have posted similar cards on the same day! LOL!
 I bought these eggs last year at Dollarama thinking that one day I would use them and when I saw a challenge with 'egg" in it-I just knew!! Great minds think alike.
This image is Tilda with Rubber Boots and I added some liquid glass so they would gleam. A lot of you may think-yellow boots, but there's a story behind this. A few weeks ago, I took my daughter to go buy rubber boots. There were tons to choose from and so many cool styles, and what did she pick-the plain yellow ones!! My four year-old niece even tried to convince her with some pink ones-but she didn't bite! Her reason was that nobody would pick yellow ones, therefore nobody in her class would have the same ones. Well, low and behold, doesn't one of her classmates show up with the identical boots and in the same size!! She was appalled!
Well, she's still loving them and made sure that her name was written on both sides of the inside of the boot and under the heel!!
I'm entering the following challenges: Cupcake Challenge (Lots of Layers), Pile it On (Use a rubber stamp) Oohlala Creations (aqua and bling) I used stickles and pearls; Paper Sundaes (texture), Tiffany Doodles (use Turquoise) Creative Inspirations Paint (Eggs) Die Cut Dreams, Dream Valley Challenges, Stamp'N'Doodle, Magnolia Down Under, Scrappy Frogs, Magnolia Stamp Lovers, Craft Your Days Away, Shannon's Sentiments, Magnolia-Licious Highlites  (all Easter challenges), and then Stampacular Challenge (Use stamps-Magnolia), Sentimental Sundays (sentiment). Hope you like! xox Trish

Make Your Own DPs and Sketch

Hey all! Is it almost Friday yet? LOL-This week has seemed so long!! It was 1 C on Monday and it was -9C on Wed., but it felt much colder because of the wind!! It's a  little bit warmer today, but when will Spring be here???
To perk up my mood  I used this cute image of Tilda-so Spring-like with her rabbit in front of her!! I decided to enter Magnolia Down Under's Challenge and I made my own papers for this card-which was hard-because anyone who knows me, knows that I am the queen on Design Papers-love 'em, can't live without them.

So, I am going to show you what I did. For the background paper first paper, I used ink and sponged/rubbed  it on in a swirl motion and then stamped flowers on the paper. For the next paper-I stitched diagonally using different colors of thread and different stitching. It actually looks pretty cool.

I also followed Just Magnolia's Sketch and am entering this week's challenge if I'm not too late!!  I'm also entering the following challenges: Creative Inspirations (Easter), Creative Belli (Eggs/Bunnies),Stamping Royalty (Spring), For Fun Challenges (Use at least 3 of the colors:Blue, Pink Yellow, Green) and Freshly Brewed (Cute and Sweet)Hope u all like!xox Trish

Fairy Merry Christmas!

Hi gang! Happy Saturday! I am still at my sister's in the city, using her computer and I had to copy and paste my piccies, so they aren't the originals-they seem kind of blurry-maybe it's just me!!

I have a funny story to share with you. 2 nights ago, my sis, my son and I were going to shop and I found a green gumball on the passenger seat, so I popped it in my mouth before my sister sat down. It was hard, so I crunched down hard and this liquid squirted everywhere in my mouth and the taste was so awful that I opened my door and spat everything out onto the street! To my horror, I realized that it wasn't gum, but a paintball! I had yellow liquid all over my mouth and I ran out of the car and grabbed a handful of slushy snow on the curb and shoved it in my mouth to clean it out and spat like crazy the taste was so awful. I then ran back into her house and drenched my face in the sink!! I still have the acrid, sour taste in my mouth. They were laughing hysterically, but I was absolutely mortified!! It's funny now-but I thought I had perhaps poisoned myself at the time!! Oh, the humanity!!LOL

 This week's challenge at DCD's Christmas Challenge is to create a Fairy Merry Christmas card. We are sponsored by our lovely Prairie Fairy this week, so the winner will win 5 images of their choice!
The papers I chose are from the Jovial collection from Basic Grey. I wanted to use the other side of the paper with the poinsettias, but I liked this side better. Hope u like! xox Trisha
