Winnie Lighting the Way

Today I'm back to share a Polkadoodles image AND some gorgeous papers from Maja Design called "Christmas Season".  OH MY!!  It is STUNNING and there are still some 6" x 6" paper pads left in the store!!

I've colored up Polkadoodles "Winnie Lighting the Way" using my Copics and YES she is still in the store as well as some extremely popular restocks of the "Winnie Heavenly" line.

Here is a die cut from one of the older Doohickey kits - the stocking.  SO CUTE!  There are some Doohickey kits currently available for pre-order in the store so check those out.  😀

My usual fun bouquet!!!  

And another one.  Ever wonder what to do with chipboard?  There are some nice pieces in the store from Laserowe Love and Scrapiniec which I LOVE using to layer on my cards.  For both pieces showed here, I've colored each with some white paint first, then I used my glue pen and adhered some glitter to get a pretty sparkly look.   Very simple!!!


Don't forget about our monthly challenge of "Stars and/or Hearts" for this month.  I even managed to squeak in some stars with my border die.  hee hee!!!

I'm entering my card in Polkadoodles challenge:
"Anything Goes"

Thanks for coming by and if I don't get back again,

Polkadoodles "December Winnie"

Hello there!  I'm sorry but I just can't break away from these luscious Polkadoodles but I promise I'll soon be back with a Maggie card.  hee hee  Some of these images are quite large so you definitely get your money's worth!   They do take a bit to color up but I love's my escape!!!  😊

I'm so excited to have used Maja Design's latest collection "Christmas Season".  There are some 6" x 6" pads in the store and if you haven't had a chance to play with their papers yet, DO IT!!  They are made with a nice heavy weight and have such beautiful designs you can mix and match with no problem!!

I've colored up "December Winnie" using my Prisma colored pencil crayons.  You can see more of the selection of images in the store HERE and right now there are some popular ones on preorder, so if you missed any, check it out.  

I added a few wood hearts to fit in with the Magnolia-licious challenge for the month
See how easy that was to be able to enter?  hee hee

So many goodies in my bouquet here and the red berries were available in the store but check out the others as well.

Winnie Heavenly - Angelic

Back again to share this months Magnolia-licious challenge:

Pretty easy right?  Well I have all kinds of hearts everywhere and even a tin star!  I started with some gorgeous papers from Lemon Craft "Yuletide".  As you can see I've nestled my image in a few layers of Polkadoodles dies, which are currently on preorder so coming to the shop soon!

Again I've used my Prismacolor pencil crayons on kraft paper to color up this super cute image from Polkadoodles new Winnie Heavenly line called "Angelic".  They too are on preorder so make sure to get yours if you're still looking!!  

I've created this poinsettia using Whimy's "Lily Flower" die set.  Tricky hey?  LOL!  I didn't feel like buying a whole bunch of poinsettia dies so made this work instead.  I've also added some gorgeous stamens and adhered red glitter to all the edges.

My usual bouquet filled with another star, some miniature pin cones, Wild Orchid flowers and berries.

I hope you'll join in on our challenge this month!! 

I'd like to enter my card in the Polkadoodles challenge:

Polkadoodles Winnine Heavenly

This week I'm sharing one of the most recent images from the Polkadoodles "Winnie Heavenly" line.  I've used some gorgeous papers from LemonCraft and there is a 6-double sided Yuletide pack and a 12-double sided Yuletide pack and they have similar colors so I used one from each pack.  

I've also added some super cute metal corners that are available in the store.

I have just recently learned how to color using Prisma colored pencil crayons.  OH MY GOODNESS how did I not know about these sooner??!!  LOL!!  So this little Winnie is called "Wrap It up" and at the time of my post, they are on preorder but hopefully by now she will be back in the store.  

I used an older Magnolia wing set die to create this little piece.  I adhered double-sided tape to some vellum, stripped off the backing and then dipped them into some glitter.  Pretty huh?!!

As as usual I've added a flower bouquet and some extra's.  You can also find the rusty bells in the store.  LOVE THEM!!!

There we go another share for the week!!  I hope you've enjoyed and been inspired with my Christmas card!  

Enjoy the rest of you week!

Polkadoodles - Winnie Decorating the Tree

Welcome back!!  Today I'm here to share a super cute image from Polkadoodles because as you may have noticed, Magnolia-licious is now carrying Polkadoodles products.  YAY!!!  What a great addition!!  I decided to make a shaped card and I've used paper from Polkadoodles "Heartfelt Christnas" 8 x 8 pack.  The papers are so nice and you get 5 sheets of 12 designs so now you don't have to hoard your stash.  LOL!!

This sweet little image is "Winnie Decorating the Tree" and I've used copics to color her up. 

I've layered this die cut from Rox Stamp and added some Stickles to make the hearts pop a bit.  The Laserowe Love chipboard stars were colored using copics first and then I added some gold Stickles to those as well.

This tree is a Polkadoodles die called "Layering Trees" and I've added some mini lights to top it off.  Too bad I couldn't add some LED lights to those!  I'd be all over that!  LOL!

And here is an up close pic just so you can see the cute little pom pom I added to the kitty's hat.  hee hee!!  

Lovely to have you back!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Magnolia-licious November Challenge

Welcome back for another Magnolia-licious Challenge.  This month the challenge will be:

Sparkles, Glitter or Bling!!  

Well of course I am going right to a Christmas card!!  It just seems appropriate for this challenge theme.  hee hee  I started with some gorgeous papers from Maja Design called "Joyous Winterdays".  As you can see I've added some pretty rusty bells around the card and used a bit of lace from a miscellaneous bag called Granny's Drawer.

I've used an image from the Polkadoodles newest release called "Winnie - Heavenly Snowman" and colored her up with my copics.  As I'm sure you're aware, the store is now carrying Polkadoodles stamps, dies and paper.  YAY!!!

Here I have a piece of chipboard from Laserowe Love "Round Frame w/Stars".  I colored it with my copics (C5) and then painted it with some Stella Wink to make it shimmer.

The snowflakes are from Scrapiniec and again I've painted these with Stella Wink as well.

And of course I couldn't leave off my bouquet of flowers!!

There we go for today!  Check out the other creations if you get a chance on the Magnolia-licious blog or FB group.  Also, if you'd like to share your Magnolia creations, you can now do so on the new Magnolia-licious Facebook group.  We would love to see you drop by.

Thanks for coming by!!

Wine Sprite

A birthday card I made for my MIL and yes, she's a white wine drinker!  I had to laugh when she asked me if this sprite was old enough to drink.  LOL!  I said they age well!!  Just like a fine wine really!  hee hee 

This is "Wine Sprite" from Aurora wings and I've colored her up with my copics.

Bugs Kisses and Halloween Wishes

Good day!!  I'm back again with another Halloween card using a new image still available in the Magnolia-licious store called "Little Owl and Tilda".  If you're fence sitting about this one, grab it while it lasts.  They are sooo stinkin cute!

I've layered this card up with Gummiapan's "Old Stars" die, which come in a pack of 3 sizes.  I've also used Polkdoodles "Fanciful Circles" behind my image and those come in an assortment of 6 dies.  If you are interested and can't find them on the website please contact Shawn at

I made a trio of Foamiran flowers using a Rosy Owl's "#4 Heart Flowers" (purple) and Whimsy's "#1 Peony Flower" die (blue Foamiran).  I've also used a variety of stamens from the store as well.

Here is an up-close pic of the purple flower using some 5mm purple micro bead stamens, black and white matte stamens.

Just for a little bit of fun I added an LED light under the "New Moon" image.  You push the snail in the corner and it just glows!  The snail and tree die are from Magnolia's Doohickey Kit #16.

I've colored this sweetie and background using my copics and included Batsy and Batsie in the scene, which are also available in the store.

Thank you so much for stopping by and

Magnolia Halloween

Good day and welcome to my new endevour!!  I may have mentioned this in a previous post but I have gone back to Magnolia-licious and am looking forward to making new cards to share and inspire you with.  One of many exciting things about Magnolia-licious is they are expanding to carry some new items and working towards becoming a one stop shop.  LOVE THAT!!  The latest to be added is the Polkadoodles line.  THEY ARE SO CUTE!!

Anyway, on to my project and I chose to make a Halloween bag!!  I love making Halloween anything but "booooooooo" (no pun intended - 😋) that the season is so short.  LOL!

Years ago Magnolia came out with a Halloween line so I was happy to go back to using some oldie but goodie images.  That is one thing about Magnolia's.  They never go out of style!!!

If you already follow me, you had to know I'd get flowers on this baby somewhere.  hee hee  I've layered using a spider web die from Magnolia's Doohickey Volume 16 with glitter paper.  

I've colored "Witch Tilda" using my Copics (see list below) then fussy cut her and propped her with with dimensional foam dots.

Here is "Scarecrow Tilda" and I've added a Tim Holtz broom and some bones.  hee hee 

I've also used this awesome tree and ladder from the Magnolia Doohickey Volume 16 kit.  Notice the black stars?  Magnolia-licious has started to carry chipboard as well from Scrapiniec and LaserLove and that's what I've used here. I colored them black with my copics and then covered them with crackle.  Chipboard takes copics very well so you can match them to anything you have colored.  Clever huh?  I always like adding something overtop like my crackle, glossy accents or Stickles.  Just makes them pop!! 

There are some amazing new Halloween images from Magnolia and still in the Magnolia-licious shop.  THEY ARE ADORABLE!!  I had to have them all.  hee hee

I am adding my project to the following challenge:
Magnolia Forever - Fall/Halloween

Stamping Bella - Oddball Birthday Queen

A birthday card for my stepdaughter Sara!!  I had bought quite a bundle of Stamping Bella's Oddball images from the first collection and I really feel like they're very addicting.  Look out!  LOL!!  

I've used all kinds of pretties for this card and since it's not for a DT, I won't be saying much about the supplies.  If you're curious let me know but I haven't had a question, let alone a comment on my blog in some time.  I think they're a thing of the past but hey it's good for me because then I can reference my Copic colors.   😀😀😀

Oddball Birthday Queen 

Have a great week!

Stamping Bella - Autumn Loves Autumn

Good day!!  I thought I would share my latest using an older image I have from Stamping Bella called "Autumn Loves Autumn".  Over a year ago, there was a great sale going on with Stamping Bella so I bought a STACK of images then never got round to coloring them.  Since I've been on a bit of a hiatus, I'm finally getting a chance to color some of them up!!  AND I've even used this fall image IN FALL!!!  SHUT IT!!  IKR?!! hee hee

All my copic combo's are below and if you look closely you can even see that I've used some Nuevo drops on the mushroom and around my image.  

I just bought a new Doohickey kit from Magnolia-licious and I freakin' LOVE IT!!  (Well new to me anyway)  It has a tree and ladder in it!!  I think I squealed so loudly only dogs could hear me!   😂😂😂  I've paired the tree up with a die from Noor called "Autumn Leaves" and absolutely COVERED the card in leaves.  You notice something?  NO FLOWERS!  Lemme tell you, that was a challenge.  ha ha ha ha!!

I'm going to enter into Stamping Bella's challenge:


Have a great week y'all!!

Big Clock from the Tilda in Wonderland

Good day!!  I'm back teaming up with Magnolia-licious once again!!  It's been years but I'm still loving these little cuties!!  My first card is for the September challenge:


I've started with gorgeous papers from Maja Design called "Enjoying Outdoors", which Magnolia-licious happens to carry.

I've colored up "Big Clock" from the Tilda in Wonderland collection as well as an oldie but a goodie, "Autumn Tilda with Pencils" using my Copics.  I love it when I get a chance to use an image more than once!!  LOL!

Magnolia-licious is also carrying Foamiran, stamens, centers and dies to create your own flowers at home. 

And another pic:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I know it seems blogs are a thing of the past so nowadays I do this mostly for  myself.  I have a record of Copic colors to reference back to if I ever need them.  Kinda clever huh?  😂

Have a great week!
