Its time for some Bingo at Magnolia Down Under Challenges

Morning everyone I hope this post finds you well.

This week at MDUC we have a Bingo board for you to play along with.

I have chosen lace-dies/punches-ribbon for my combination and used my new Tilda. Not the best colouring but off colour this week.  Normally I would go back and try again but I just did not have the energy.

Be sure to pop by MDUC as there are some gorgeous creations and of course to check out the BINGO board. being shared. I think I say that every fortnight but it is so true!

Anyhow I am off now.

Thanks for dropping by, until next time xoxo

Monochromatic Month at Mad for Markers Challenges

*For my Tickled Pink Blog Hop post please see below*

Good morning everyone I hope this post finds you well. 

We have just come off a long weekend here in Melbourne this weekend so in my mind I still feel like its Monday! We had a mixed weekend filled with shopping for things for our renovations, sleepovers, play dates and sadly the passing of our beloved dog Wellington. We inherited Wellie from my parents after he kept walking up to the main street in Sassafras and sitting on the deck on one of the cafes. The owners did not mind they even feed him baguettes and had his own water bowl but someone did and they used to take him into the pound all the time. Mum and Dad have a reasonable size property and it was not fenced and they thought it was to cruel to keep him chained up all day long so that is how we ended up with him.

I will be the first to admit that he drove me absolutely crazy as he hated people walking at a height above where he is and unfortunately that is how the walking path is situated at our house so that meant he barked quite a bit. As he got older (he was 15 years old) he was deaf and losing his eyesight. In having said that though my children adored him. They have always known as a family to have Wellie and now he is gone they are struggling. So a rather sad end to the weekend.

Anyhow on to the this months challenge at Mad for Makers. We want to see your monochromatic creations.

I was a tad put off by this challenge so chickened out and went with the greys option...Maybe for my next sample I will try something a little more challenging!!

No card for me today just a colouring sample. Time does not seem to be on my side at the moment.
Be sure to pop by each day to get your daily inspiration fix!

For all those copic needs you can pop into Mad for Markers store. Sammi also has a great range of stamps on offer too.

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time

So did you enjoy the Tickled Pink Previews this week. I just adore this new release loving the diversity of the images. Kellie aka the boss was also very excited about this release and as such decided we should do a blog hop, something she has not done for a while, to showcase these cuties and to give you all some more chances to win!

It's Magnolia Down Under Challenges 3rd Birthday

 I am excited to bring you this post today as it is in celebration of the 3rd Birthday of Magnolia Down Under Challenges. I have been with the DT for just under a year now and I can say that this group of ladies are some of the nicest I have come across. I love checking in with the ladies, we talk about so much more than just carding.

Anyhow to celebrate the 3rd Birthday there is also a new look on the Blog. There are also some new blinkies so make sure you pop by to check out the look and update your blinkie.

Of course being a birthday celebration our theme this week is Birthday and everyone has joined in. So lots of eye candy for you to have a look at starting here with mine

I got these gorgeous papers the other week from my Local store and they are by Websters. They are so pretty and I think perfect for the Magnolia's. As there is a lot of work going on with the layers and paper I decided to keep my embellishments simple and understated as I did not want to hide them.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and I really do you hop over to MDUC to see the new look and the other ladies creations.

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time

Previewing Spanish Lolita Willow

As promised I am back today with another card for the current preview for Tickled Pink Stamps with my Spanish Lolita Willow card. I just adored her dress and loved getting stuck into the colouring of it. Still a little practice needed but hey we can't all be perfect!!!

A fairly simple card...I did not end up liking my liquid pearls on the black scallops but that was my last thing I did onthe card so it was too late to change it!!!!! So just had to go with it.

Oh boy this release is so much fun!

As I mentioned yesterday be sure to stop by TPS to check out the other cards and to find out how you can win her for yourself.

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time xoxoxox

Previewing Lil French Lolita Lilith

Hands up who is loving this new release at Tickled Pink Stamps! ME!!!!!! Did you see Aussie Kellita yesterday?

Today I get to share with you Lil French Lolita Lilith. As soon as I saw her I could not wait to colour her up. I had "It wasn't me" in my head when I was making the card but how do you put that into a sentiment. I decided to be a bit boring and use the greeting "Happy Birthday to you" but did it in french. Anyhow that is enough waffling here is my card:

See told you there is something about this Lilith that makes you think ooo I have to have her!!

Now be sure to pop by the Tickled Pink Blog and check out the other amazing cards and to find out how you could win this little cutie.

I will be back tomorrow with another preview for this release then back on the 11th for a blog hop. Hope to see you then

Anyhow thanks for stopping by today, until next time
