I created a card for my Dad today! He bought a new semi-truck. He's a milk truck driver (he goes to the farms and picks up the milk and takes it to the plant where they make cheese and milk). Well after 12 years he finally got a new one....he so deserves it! I found a site on-line where you can order truck stamps, so I ordered my Peterbuilt stamp and today I made a card to match my Dad's new truck! Of course I was so excited about it, that I totally flaked and forgot to take a pic of it! When I talk to my mom, I will have her take some pics and email them to me so I can share it with all of you!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I have to get going and make my DT Entry for the WOJ Open Designer Call!

Today I am sharing a special gift basket that I have made for a very special person...I can't say who as this is still in the mail! I decorated a special Target gift basket with a bunch of fun items!
And here is the bath set that I have modified just a little bit...these colors were so much fun to work with! I used my SU hostess set to make these fun labels. I wish I had more time to decorate them even more....I guess that is what I get for procrastinating!
I also have some special Thank Yous to give! First is a package that I got from my Bella Sistah, Tiffaney! She was so much fun getting to know this past 3 months! She is a great friend, and I am happy to have another friend for life! I love how the package was about my favorite colors (pink and brown)! I got Tilda on Skates....how cool is that?! I can't wait to make a card with her! Thanks Tiff you are the greatest sistah!
And this last picture is the package I just received in the mail this week from Lisa. She was my Secret Angel from my Magnolialicious yahoo group! I got 2 Tildas in one week....how great is that?! I swear Lisa knew me to a "T" when she put this package together! I love it! Check out the super cute planner Lisa made with Tilda holding a rose...and that is the same Tilda that she sent me!

And here is the inside of the card! I used my Martha snowflake boarder punch, and the snowflakes are from the new SU dies! I just got them today and LOVE them!
I am overall happy with how this one turned out! Hope the DT loves it too....as the winner will get to be guest designer for 2 weeks at the WOJ Challenge Blog!

I see so many people playing along with the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenges so I decided to check it out! Oh my....I am hooked! I had so much fun playing this week! This week's challenge was called "Tie That Sketch" which was made by Donna. This sketch was so much fun to play with! I got to ink up my new Magnolia that I got from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap!
Here is my card that I made with the sketch! So what do you think? I think Tilda came out adorable and looks so nice and cozy all bundled up in her coat! Of course the sun wasn't out today so I had to try and take a picture with my Ott Light!
I invented my own bow for this card! hee hee! I was using some wire trimmings and it didn't want to tie every well so I did some "fancy twisting" (it really was just plain twisting...but fancy sounds so much more fun), and love how the look came out! Tilda is colored with my Copics and pop'd up with pop dots! The black background paper and white snowflake punched (Martha Stewart punch) paper are left overs from my wedding invitations, the other papers are DCWV...I love the All Dressed Up paper pack! White applique and holographic embossing powder is used on Tilda's hood! Ribbon, jingle bells, and snowflake are from my stash!
And then here is the inside of the card! I love decorating the insides on cards now! It just makes them look so much more pretty and polished!
Thanks for stopping by!

We made a twirly snowflake card! I love how you can wind up the snowflake so when the recipient receives the card and takes it out of the envelope the snowflake spins around and around and around.....!
Then we made this cute 3x3 Thanksgiving Day card! We used the scratch and sniff technique so our pumpkin pie really smells like pumpkin pie! YUM YUM!!!
Then we got to play with the Big Shot and made this cute ornament! I love all the sparkles on it! I think Dazzling Diamonds and I could be GREAT friends....as I always love bling and sparkles!
And finally is a total embossed card from head to toe and inside and out! I really like this stamp set....I might have to break down and buy it! hee hee! And we even got to play with hodge podge hardware! Woo-Hoo!
