Happy New Year Everyone! I'm sure you all have your New Year's resolutions in line.  Mine is to take on less and craft more!   It suits me just fine.  Unfortunately, I may have to wait til 2012 to start working on that!  I've got a lot lined up this year!!!

I've got a new card to start off the year and this time I followed a recipe:

4 flowers
3 dp's
2 Magnolia images
1 ribbon

Oh what fun! I love the challenge of working within specific parameters. It makes it just a little more interesting. The Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog has the details of how you can join in on the fun. And, there will be a prize awarded to one lucky person. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Here's my card...


This little cutie pie is Mini Oops Tilda. Now, I don't use the word 'darling' very often, but...isn't she just??? I paired her with Mini Kitchen. When I saw that we were doing a project with a 'recipe', I just knew that I had to use something from the 'Yummy For Your Tummy' collection.

With a kitchen theme, I had no choice but to use dp's from BG's 'Nook and Pantry' collection. Cs is by both Bazzill and SU. The layout that I used is actually from last week's Friday Sketcher's challenge. I knew I wouldn't post in time for the challenge, but I liked the sketch so I decided to use it. The image and it's background were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I used a MS border punch for some added interest under one of the dp layers. All flowers were sent to me by my friend and DT sister, Mindy. Thank you Mindy!!! I LOVE THE POPPIES!!! They're one of my most favorite flowers ever!!! The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps. I grabbed the ribbon and brads from my stash. I hope it's ok that I added the brads. I know it's not part of the recipe but the corners were screaming for them! For some bling bling, I added stardust and cinnamon Stickles all over the place.

The images were colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's. Here are the details:

Copics: E000, 00, 02, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, R20, RV21, W00, 1, 3, 5

DI's: walnut stain, antique linen, vintage photo, scattered straw, barn door, peeled paint, black soot

Thank you all for stopping by. I truly hope you enjoyed your visit :-)
