Tilda with flowers

Hi everyone! How's life treating you? Today is a beautiful day here, because finally we're feeling the autumn cool weather, now it's the time to wear sweaters, boots and sleeping in a little bit. Yesterday I finally manage to get some free time and make a card, just in time for a couple of challenges. I just realized that I haven't post any layouts in soo long! I have some nice pictures that I'd like to scrap, but I can't find the time to do one layout. I'm actually working on another project that it's pretty much consuming my time, besides work of course, so I hope that next week I can share it with you.
Anyways, today I want to share with you another Tilda card! I just can't get enough of this cute stamps, they're definitely one of my favorites. I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Thinking of you
- Magnolia Challenge - Sketch
- The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - 4 seasons - spring!
- Paper Cutz Challenge - hand stamped image or digital image

I used some Stamping Up! paper Cindy gave me, they are gorgeous! Thank you Cindy for the goodies you sent me. Here's another close up of the card, I really enjoy coloring Tilda, she looks so sweet holding that flower.

Well I want to share with you the goodies I received in the mail last week, I finally had a chance to get a nice picture and I'm really happy that I bought my first Magnolia Stamp! When I saw a card Mina created with this stamp at the Just Magnolia Challenge blog I fell in love with it, I just love figure skating and Tilda looks so cute skating with Edwin that I had to buy this stamp. I also got some Basic Grey paper, MS punches, two CC Designs stamps and black memento ink.

May you have a wonderful week and thank you for your lovely comments, I hope you liked today's card.
Happy crafting!

Xmas is near :)

Hello scrappers!! How's life doing? I'm in such a good mood today, which is weird because I'm don't really like mondays lol you know, mondays mean saying goodbye to weekends, saying goodbye to free time, saying goodbye to sleeping in and getting back to work. Smileys Anyways, I'm happy because I received some packages on the mail yesterday!! Yey!! A couple of days ago I won a bid at ebay of 3 Martha Stewart punches at a very good price! I was in a hurry this morning that I forgot to take pics of the new goodies I received but hopefully tomorrow I will have a card to share with you and share the pictures as well.
Since yesterday I was very happy to receive my MS punches I was inspired and I created a Magnolia card, I used a Tilda image that Linda gave me, thank you again Linda! If you  have a chance visit her blog she creates beautiful cards everyday. I'm actually entering this card to 4 challenges!

- Just Magnolia Challenge - monochrome
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge - all that sparkles
- Papertake Weely Challenge - spots n' stripes
- ABC Challenge -  G is for green
- Cupcake Craft Challenge - sketch (I missed this challenge, I forgot it was due today lol I thought it was tomorrow)

So here's the card:
 I really love this stamp! I think is perfect for xmas, what do you think? Here's a close up of the image, I added a glitter dust to her wings and the gifts.


I colored this image with prismacolors. I asked my brother (who is an artist) to let me use one of his blending stumps...

I've seen many times how he colors and uses this tool so I had an idea of how to color this image. I think I'm getting better at coloring, because in the past cards I really didn't put much effort on the coloring Smileys. I really recommend this tool, it makes your coloring look much better, so if you get a chance to buy this tool, don't think twice!
Well I need to get back to work, I hope you all have a wonderful day Smileys.
Happy scrapping!
