Tilda with Hawaii Flower "Crayola" card

Good morning everyone!! Well, my dad has been admitted to the hospital due to pneumonia. This is the 2nd time he got pneumonia within 3 months. Anyhow, although he still isn't discharged yet, he is much better now and maybe he might get to go back to his nursing home soon... phew!

I didn't really get too much time to make cards. Therefore, today I am sharing with you a card I made a while ago, but didn't get a chance to post it. I colored this card with Prismacolor Pencils and wrote down the number of the colors I used, but I couldn't find that piece of paper. I thought maybe I can just post this card and whenever I found the paper so I can list the colors on my post, but with no success. Sorry :o(

When I made this card, my original plan was to make a card with Mardi Gras colors. So I thought purple, green & bright yellow/gold would be my base colors. After I put the whole color combo together on my card, it turned out to be a "Crayola" commercial, lol. You can tell why just by looking at the card. I just couldn't stop laughing at this. Oh well, after all, it's a finished card and the most wonderful thing is... it's a Tilda card. This card is made with the Tilda with Hawaii Flower from Magnolia-licious.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Card Cupids - Ribbon
Make it Colorful Challenge #20 - purple & yellow
Just Magnolia Week 109 - Friends
Stamp with Fun Challenge #113 - In the Garden
Make It Monday #39 - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenge #8 - Stamp Something
CES Challenge #38 - Embossing
Divas by Design Challenge #2 - One for the girls
Truly Scrumptious Challenge #57 - Anything Goes

Here is my finished card

Good morning and happy weekend everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by and at the same time I am sad to say this is my last DT card post for PWCO. Yes, my term is ended this month. Although I really adore the PWCO stamps, but it's pretty hard for me to hold a family, a full time job and a few DT commitments all at the same time, so I decided to take a break on the new term and hopefully someday, I will be able to share more PWCO creations with you. In addition, I would like to thank the great PWCO fellow DT members for all the great inspirations. Also, thank you for the past months on being a great boss lady Peggy at PWCO and to congratulate her in advance for her upcoming wedding~

More Magnolia-licious Card Front Samples

Good morning everyone! Not long ago, I posted a couple card front samples for Diana of Magnolia-licious to take to the upcoming CHA. Well, today, I have more samples for you. Yes, I know the weather is warmer now, but you know sometimes, when you don't have something, you crave for it. Therefore, I made a winter card, lol. I love this Mini Singing Carol. I also using some punches and they included the Vintage Tag and the Leaf and Swirl Doohickey Die.
Here is the finished card front

Closer view of this image and the embossed vintage tag

Here is another card front to share with you with the Magnolia Mini stamps. I just love these two minis from Magnolia-licious because I think they are just such a perfect couple to use for a love theme card. The Kissing Edwin - Standing and the Shy Tilda are this perfect couple. When I planned this layout, I wanted to do some clouds, but then I wanted to make the clouds fluffy. I've used cotton and glitter before, and this one I wanted to try a different way. Since I got no idea, I just wandered around my house, when I passed by a pile of felt I bought for my daughter to play earlier, I thought "hey, maybe I can try felt this time." So, there! I used a cloud die cutter I got from my dearest blogging friend Maylee. I cut the felt with these cloud dies, then hand stitched around and stuff some left over felt inside to make it fluffy.

Here is a closer view on this card

Here is my last card front sample for this post. I picked these Chef Tilda & Chef Edwin for this sample. I colored these images a while ago, but they have been set aside for a while since I couldn't think of a layout idea. When I checked out the stash paper and saw this cupcake DP, so I decided to us it with these images.

Here is the finished card front sample
