tilda ATC

Here is my tilda and friends atc- challenge this week was spooky. So I colored tilda in halloween colors, and cut out web with my cricut-and embossed it silver. I also cut out a scary cat and bats and spooky. I used stickles to make my spooky stick out a little better. TFL

my new atc's

Please tell me what you think of my new atc's.
I have turned these three atc's in for a DT call. I know I don't have near the experience as most everybody out here-but I figure you for sure can't get it if you don't try for it-right?!!

1.-I made the first one with papers from the Urban Prairie paper pad made by Basic Grey- I used my water thread punch (although it is kind of covered by tilda) and used ribbon, brads and cut out little birdies on my cricut, also the scallop circle from cricut I downloaded from Okie!
2.- The second one I used some papers from Creative Memories for the background. I then made a little window with snowflakes and made little curtains and cut out and colored a little table I made my dh draw! : ) I added a little card to the top of the table as well, and am using that as my sentiment-Merry x-mas.
3.- More papers from the Urban Prairie paper pad for the background and then I cut out a cupcake that I embossed with my cuttlebug and colored it. I then added 'it's a party" and embossed that with silver and then colored around it to make it stick out more.
All three were colored with bic mark it's and sharpie's. Except for tildas face, hands etc.. which I am still having to color with my crayola twistable. (Can't wait to get that flesh tone copic-yeahh..)
All Tilda's came from Roses on Paper.
TFL-and love to hear what ya think!

New quest-anyone interested?

Ok has anyone ever watched biggest loser?

This pic is me (about 8/9 years ago). I have (like many people) not lost weight after my last baby was born. (I've actually gained : ( since she was born). I want to look like this again!! : )

I would love to lose 50lbs. before my middle daughter graduates in May 2009. So....

I was wondering if anyone out there would like to do a sort of bloggers biggest loser? I think I just need some inspiration, and thought that maybe this would do it. Anyone interested please let me know @

I have cuttlebugged the blue paper (urban prairie-basic grey)with sylized flowers, and the brown (jolie chocolat-s.e.i) with the swiss dots. Stampd with love and added a couple of flowers and a chocolate heart button. TFL!!

My 5 year old wants her card on here too! ; )

My little girl (5) wanted me to put her card on the computer too-she sees me put my cards on here, so she thought hers needed to be too... How could I say no to that?
So... this card is by my Emily, she colored tilda with leaves- with her crayons, she then added a pumpkin and leaves and mommy made the bats for her on the cricut. she is going to enter this in the crafty monkey challenge for kids under 16! This week their doing Holloween.

Tilda atc- and another award

Here is my Tilda ATC- It is supposed to be golden colors. I have stamped Tilda w/ pumpkin and also used the spooky fence stamp. I think I may have made her little cheeks a little too pink-but of course that was one of the last things I did-so I hope they are ok.

The background paper is from imaginisce-black glitter paper is from the glitter stack. I put the orange scallop through the cuttlebug , but you can't really tell. I am not sure of the company the image is from? Then I have added some stickles and flowers and some brads, along with some ribbon.

Challenge 40, Tabbed Sketch
Below you will see a sketch Please make your work using the Sketch as your guide,You can rotate the sketch & even resize the elements if you would like to,But do not move the elements around,As long as we can still see the original sketch layout and it can be easily recognised then that is fine!

a big thanks out to Holly

I have a penny black challenge card-thanks to Holly! (thank you for the image Holly!!!) Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to join in on this one!
I put some paper through my cuttlebug for the pumpkin embossed design, and added some crinkle paper-ribbon and buttons, and a couple of rub ons (oh..and colored with my "twistable"
crayola pencils) Soon I hope to get some Bic Marcs to try them out-and then hopefully then on to the copics!! HEHE : ) Sounds like a plan-huh? Smiles-and TFL!

OH Yah! I got it back!! YEAAHHH!

Ok- I figured out how to put the counter back on, and put the music on! I really like the Jesse Mccartney song and choose the kid rock song-cuz I am from Northern Michigan!!! : ) Hope you like one or the other or both!! : )


I somehow just deleted my counter-I am sooo bummed! I was trying to add music-and guess I had it wrong-but thought I was only deleting something to do with that-not my counter-ohh well- I guess I'll start over!! ARGHHH! : (

Cute tilda with broom

sarah kay card

I believe this image is called precious moments-and that it certainly is... This little country girl is adorable with her little chicks!
This is another new stamp from Roses on Paper that I couldn't wait to use!!
I used colored pencils- and realized after I colored the bow in her hair that the trendils were supposed to be her hair not ribbons in the bow!! OOPS! Too late to change that now-but I def. won't make that mistake again! TFL
