Show the way Jolly Bullfinch

My poor markers are getting a bit of a work out right now - its that time of year when I love to colour - its almost Christmas time!

I was going through my stamps on the weekend and came across a few that I hadnt inked in a while. The new Magnolia club that arrived last week meant that I had a great masking opportunity at hand. 

The only stamp from the Winder Wonderland collection is the "Show the way sign", the rest are from much older collections. I love how you can collect stamps over the years and they all come together to make a scene :)

Its all coloured with Copics, some snow tex added with some stickles and doo hickeys and we're done. 
Thanks for stopping by! See you again on the weekend.

The day before Christmas

How cute is this little fella? I've seen him around Blogland a little bit already and he seems really popular. 
I do love an Edwin :) 

Lots of die cutting on this card. It was fun to make a smaller sized card than usual. I hope to get a few more Chrissy cards done in the next few weeks. 

Ahhh - Christmas - my favourite time of the year.... if you don't count Easter.. ;)

Afternoon Tea Tilda

Its MDUC time again and this week Ying gets to choose the theme! And its a good one too - Autumn Vintage. 

I inked up these cute stamps from the Little London collection for my card. The papers are old Teresa Collins (I think!).

This cute little Tilda is so sweet to colour - and I had to have the little Magnolia puppy too. Adorable. 

I hope to have some more craft time this week, I received the Christmas stamp club this week and they're calling me! 
Until later, have a great week!

Tripping Flower Tilda

Happy Sunday friends, 
Another new challenge at MDUC this week - Anything Goes

I've had this coloured on my desk for a little while now.... I wasn't happy with it. The colours were too pale for me I think? So I got out my RV markers and added some contrast. Much happier, but still not perfect. 

We'd love for you to join us at MDUC this week.
I'll be back a little later this week.
Hugs Kylie

Karate Tilda

Oh - hooray - it is the weekend finally!
Time to get the markers and stamps out! Its craft time, sigh - bliss. 

This card was a commission from someone at work. She is a martial arts instructor and requested a card for one of her students - a little girl turning 8 year old who has an orange belt - did I have the perfect stamp for this little missy!

This is Karate Tilda - I almost didnt believe that this stamp was two years out already. These last few years have just flown by. 

Had to add a "8" to the card :)

And a little doo hickey peacock watching miss Tilda do her martial arts. 
Some shabby pink frantage, lots of girly lace and flowers and we're done. 
I hope the recipient likes her special card. My work colleague was pleased so that was enough to make my day. 
I'll be back Sunday
Hugs xx

Alva mitten decoration

Good morning Friends, 
There is a new challenge over at MDUC this morning - this week we're looking for Christmas in October.
I saw on Facebook this morning that it is only 11 weeks to go! OMG. 

For my project, I've coloured little Alva from the Jingle Jangle collection and made a mitten shaped decoration.  She was just lovely to colour. 
All of the die cuts are by Doo Hickey dies. 

A little bit of distressing and some frantage to go with it.

I hope you have some fun planned this weekend. 
Until later,

Guard of the Castle

Hi there friends,
I received some happy mail this morning - perfect timing as its my day off work! So I actually managed to make a card, during the day time, on the same day the stamps arrived! I dont think I've done this since I went back to work over two years ago! It is a great feeling. 

This cute little Edwin is Guard of the Castle. He is from the Little London collection. I've masked him with Vintage phone booth, also from Little London.

The sentiment is NorthStar Stamps. I think it is so cute and perfect for this card. 

And a close up of our little guard. I am not happy with his hat... I hate colouring black! lol.

And here is my little crafting buddy for today. My youngest. He was pretty proud of his efforts. So cute!

I'll be back on the weekend,

Sakura Tilda

Good morning! Did you have a good week? Over here it is sunny and spring is certainly here. The paddocks are green and the birds are chirping.

There is a new challenge today at MDUC.  Today we're looking for a colour combination - it is Lori's choice - Blue, brown and white. 
I found some noodle boxes at my supermarket this week and thought I would decorate one. 
This is cute Sakura Tilda. She was lovely to colour. I adore her hair. 

I hope you get a chance to check out the challenge. There is loads of amazing inspiration there. 
Well, thats it from me!
I will see you later on in the week
Hugs Kylie
