Mildred the Mini Pig

Happy Friday Everyone!

Have a new card to share with you today.
It is a Guest Designer creation for Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.
The challenge theme for this fortnight is "Pamper Your Pets".

One of my co-worker has several pets: a cat, a dog, 3 goats and a mini pig.
The mini pig is the latest addition; she is smart and is super adorable!
I decided to make a card for Britt and her little piggy Millie.


I inked only one pig from the stamp for this occasion.
The image is water colored with Distress Ink pads
and embossed with vintage white frantage.


I have made the barn-shaped card base from scratch.

Become Your Best You

Hello Friends!
Hope you are all keeping well wherever you are.

A new card to share with you today. I've made it for a friend's birthday.


Over the years, I have bought many digi stamps and they just sat in my computer.
One of my goals this year is to re-discover them and use them for cards.

I have water colored this Saturated Canary digi with Distress Ink pads.

Sweet Tilda Baby Girl

Hello Everyone and Happy New Year!!!

It has been a while since I posted anything, although I am still actively crafting.
Hopefully I can get my own computer soon instead of using iPad
which is not user-friendly for writing up blog posts.

Anyway, today I have a baby card to share with you.
This sweet image is Sleeping Tilda Baby by Magnolia.
It is one of my favorite Magnolia stamp.


The image is stamped on Canson Mixed Media paper with Staz-On
Timber Brown ink. It was then water colored with
TH Distress Ink pads. I added sparkles on
the wings and frantaged around
the image for added texture.


Sentiment ~ Stampin'Up
Embellishments ~ The Ribbon Girl and my stash
Designer paper ~ Maja Design Vintage Baby Collection
Dies ~ Magnolia, Marianne Design, Memory Box, Frantic Stamper,
Spellbinders and Stampin'Up
