M R Designs "Winter Frost"

Today's card brought to you by M R Designs!!  Well I made the card but I've used Michele's gorgeous papers new to the shop called "Winter Frost".  There are also some elements and insert pages available and they are GORGEOUS!  AND more winter papers in PINK!!  SERIOUSLY!!!  Love non-traditional colored winter cards!!

Aren't these tree's the freakin' cutest?!!  They are Magnolia doohickeys that I covered in gorgeous glitter!! 

You know, I thought taking a picture outside would be a good thing but ummm...obviously it was TOO cloudy.  Hey at least you can see my glitter on the flowers and below my image.  I used a huge array of suppliers on my flowers here including Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima!! 

My super fun to play with image is "Cocoa Wishes" from Tiddly Inks colored with Copics and listed below.

Have I mentioned that Michele is now also doing Facebook timeline covers?  for CHEAP!!  AND she does custom watermarks too!  Very talented lady!

I'm going to enter into the Tiddly Inks challenge:

More Amazing Chipboard

Hi there! I'm back today with some vintage chipboard!!  Ok, the chipboard itself isn't vintage but it sure looks great on a vintage card doesn't it?  Maybe shabby vintage?  LOL! 

The stamp set I've used is from Live and Love Crafts "Stempelglede - Postcard from Paris" and I've adorned it with my usual raft of flowers.  LOL! 

This honeycomb piece is one of my absolute favorites and so far I've managed to use 2 pieces from the 1 piece that's on the Southern Ridge Trading Company store and still have another piece left.  This piece is numbered PAT-274.

Here's another gorgeous flourish piece from SRTC COR-181.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your week.  I hope you manage to get in some crafty time this week.  It's soooo good for you!  hee hee

August Monthly Kit and Clowder Challenge

Welcome back to another challenge at Kit and Clowder and this month we are playing with 


We are being sponsored by The East Wind digi stamps who is giving away 3 free digi stamps as this month's prize.  Check them out!  This one I'm using is called ''Aurora - Spring Butterfly".  Pretty?  I think so!!!

I've used a few gorgeous pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard pieces.  The first one is the flowery frame (FRA-287) underneath my image layer.  I painted it white and then added shabby pink Frantage to it.  Of course I used my normal overabundance of extra's.  hee hee

Love these Prima bulbs!!  The bird (NAT-295) is another piece from SRTC and I painted this one with pink, painted some white Gesso on, which turned pink...LOL...then I added some Stardust stickles...which also turned pink.  LOL!  So fine whatever!  Still looks good.  hee hee
I used a number of resin stars just because I'm like that!!  So here's my close up of my coloring and this was my 4th attempt.  Practice practice practice!  It will be wonderful when one day I just grab an image and color it!!  Can't wait!  But it's coming.  hee hee

Come on over to the Kit and Clowder Facebook page as we are having all kinds of giveaways to celebrate 3000 members.  Freebies and tons of sales!

Enjoy your long weekend!
