Anything Goes


Are you having a great weekend? I am a little shopping, crafting and relaxing can't ask for more. Today I would like to share my "Anything Goes" DT card for Simply Magnolia.

I chose Strawberry Tilda. I paper pieced her dress, headband and basket. Her skin, hair, good and strawberries were colored with Copic Markers. The dog is Rufus and he was paper pieced too. The paper and the tag are from PRIMA. I embellished my card with a tulle bow, flowers, wooden bird, white doily and a little bling. I used Magnolia Doo Hickey die Paris Nights and the Lovely View die is from Little Darlings.

I hope I have inspired you to head to your craft space and create something amazing!

Flower Pot

Wow! Can you believe that it is already the middle of of January? I have to say I am enjoying the temperate weather in Northern Florida. Soon it will be spring and flowers will be blooming all around. For my Magnolia Forever DT challenge "Blue" I decided to create this flower pot with Tilda in the Garden. She is too adorable.

Here is how I created my project. I purchased the paper mache flower pot in Michaels. I sprayed the pot with Prima Bloom Spray. To create the butterfly and dragon fly sticks I used straws that I covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape and add a pearl to the top of each one. The inside of the pot was filled with these beautiful blue and white flowers. I used Magnolia large butterfly, butterfly and dragon fly doohickey dies. The other butterfly die is from Memory Box. I added trim, butterflies, seed packets and Tilda to the outside design of the flower pot.

I hope I inspired you today to create something.  Thanks for stopping by!
