Easter is a comin' :)

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 8 comments
Hello friends! Thanks for visiting me today. I've got a Easter card to share with you all. I really like the way it came out. I think it's very simple and clean looking.. well for me anyways :) This Hoppy Easter Collection is one of my favorite Collections ever! I just love the images in them. I have a few more Easter cards in mind, I hope I have time to make them before Easter.

This card is for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. I've combined the two challenges, dont you love when that happens. Just Magnolia's challenge is BINGO so you have to choose 3 catagories in a row. I chose, Gems, Ribbon and Flowers. Fussy and Fancy's challenge is to use a feather or a zipper. I thought a feather would be cute since I've got little chicks on my card.

I hope you will join us in our challenges.

Don't forget about the Magnolia-licious Easter Extravaganza Contest!

Just Magnolia Challenge, Use your favorite Color Combo.. :)

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 10:36 AM 6 comments
I bet you dont have to scroll down to guess what color my card is! :) Pink of course! I had a lot of fun making this card cause I have such a great selection of pink stuff. I just love this Tilda holding Tulips, she's so cute and fun to color. I'll be honest her cheeks where a little difficult for me. I guess I'm just not used to the angle of these style Tildas. She's SUPER cute though. I love how you can see her eye lashes. I hope you can join us at Just Magnolia this week and show us your favorite color combos!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A New Challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 9:30 AM 5 comments
Hello friends. I wanted to start my post and say THANK YOU to those who went to the iCopic Grand Opening. It was a BLAST! I love teaching what I love to do! I met some wonderful ladies as well. I took just a few pictures and the store was also taking pictures. I will share soon as I get a chance.

I made this card for my dear friends. Sherri and Kenny, their Anniversary was yesterday. I've had so much going on I didn't start working on their card until yesterday. My oldest daughter had spent the night over Sherri's on Saturday so when she brought her home I let Sherri pick her ribbon, colors, flowers ect. Talk about a custom card! Then I made her watch me put it together lol!

This is also the card I've made for Wild Orchid Craft Challenge. Our theme is dieing to punch. So use dies or punches. I hope you will join us over at Wild Orchid!

Have a wonderful day!

Easter Card, Tilda with Rabbit.

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 4 comments
Hello Magnolia Friends! I have an Easter card for you today. I just LOVE this Tilda with Hanging Rabbit from the Butterfly Dreams Collection. I used my mini Spring Tree and instead of coloring the flowers I used my new Peony Flowersoft. It really gives it a Spring feel, doesn't it? Now I honeslty wasn't sure about the grass when I was doing it, I thought I messed up my picture and was going to have to cut Tilda out, but after adding all the different shades of greens I REALLY love the way this card came out.

This card is for the Just Magnolia challenge this week. Our challenge is a Sketch by Bev. It was such a fantastic sketch to work with, I hope you will be able to join us in the challenge this week.

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 5:55 PM 6 comments
Happy Friday my lovely blog readers! I have a card for you today, for Just Magnolia. Our theme this week is Anything Goes, optional glitter! Fun right?! I just LOVE the way my card came out. I masked the mini #468 trees in a row, behind this new #275 Tilda with Lace Jeans. She's SO CUTE!!!! I used my new 3 Bugs in a Rug paper, I love it! I had a hard time covering it up with layers or embellishments, so there's a lot of paper showing. Of Course I used my Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers too, You can't make a card without them.

Well I hope you have a fantabulous Friday!  :)
