Time for a Christmas hop.....

Well i'm pretty sure this is the first Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop that I have joined in with this year...sad I know but my Maggies have unfortunately taken a bit of a back seat of late with all my DT work i have been doing and family time has taken a bit of a premium too.
Anywho with the arrival of my Fall kit and the yummy new Christmas MAggies in my hands I just had to join in this time.  I actually think this is the first one back after a summer hiatus anyways.

So if you have found your way here from Glendas blog you are on the right track!

i have used Ribbon Tilda, snowflake stamp (which is a bit hard to see) and title stamp from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. I have kept my card really simple as I learnt from last year the bulky ones cost a fortune to post!!  LOL 

Tilda is coloured with copics.
the paper is My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas 6x6 pad.

Next on the hop is Monique's blog.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the hop!!

A stitch here and there...

Well when I had the day off unexpectedly the other day i actually managed to get some crafting stuff done...yay!!  Felt so good.
Here is one of the things I managed to get done...a card for the Saturated Canary Challenge which this time round is asking for stitching.  Now my stitching is faux stitching as the sewing machine is in the other room and yada yada yada I couldnt be bothered going to get it lol....but its stitching none the less.

Yes the theme this week is ..umm...Masculine...lol.  In typical Tickled Pink style...lol

I made this card for my hubby's bday.  His bday was actually last week but as he has been away working he wasnt home so he is now  :)  Gave me a bit more time to get a card made as well because..umm..dont tell him..but i forgot...whoops!!!  Not his bday just to make the card!!   LOL

I do find it so hard not to prettify a males card...do you??

Anyways I hope you come join us this week!

Its a girly pearly type of thing..

happening over at Bizzy Bec's Blog Challenge this month.
Yes we want to see girls and pearls on your creations!!!   So easy peasy with all the wonderful girly images out there and pearls...well who doesnt have the biggest stash of pearls somewhere ...lol

I have used one of the wonderful new images from CC designs Laugh Lines which are available in Bizzy Bec's shop Here.  And the really cool thing is that they currently have 30% off!!  Yes a massive 30%...OMG!!!   My pearls even though tiny are actually liquid pearls.  Only because it was a challenge to myself to use them.  never had much luck with them before but think I have now mastered the art...lol

Image was coloured using Copics,
and I have used 2 Magnolia doohickey dies and some cream tasseled ribbon all available from bizzy Bec's wonderful shop.

its a snow WHITE kind of day....

Ok so blogger isnt playing nice yet again....not sure why I keep staying with them other than the fact that I'm too lazy to change to something else....lol.  One day they play nice the next they dont....Grrr!!!  Lead you into a false sense of security then WHAM pull the rug out from under your feet yet again.

o well soldier on and just grin and bear it hey!!!

Yes its me back with another Tickled Pink Stamp Challenge!!   It felt so weird not doing a creation for last week but because it was the 'newbies' first time I thought I would let them have their time in the sun..but man o man it sure did feel weird!!
But this week I am back with us..umm....established team...lol  (not calling us Oldies I feel Old enough..lol).   and we have a fabulous challenge for you this week.


yep those cards where everything is white although you are allowed to colour the image!  Yay!!
I love this theme as the creations always look so clean and fresh and timeless.  Such an elegance to them.

i have used a WOJ border die, a TH embossing folder, white lace and a MTF flower die.
Pretty simple.

So now its your turn to jump on in and show us what you can do with this fabbo theme.

O and dont forget we are now using random.org to pick the winner...yay!!!!

And remember Tickled Pink Images only!!!!
