A few years ago I was totally addicted to making ATC's.I attended a workshop every weekend where we would do all these techniques for some amazing backgrounds before we created our little mini works of art.
 I really loved the confined area you had to create with and so lately I have taken to creating on tags much for the same reason.
 This tag has a few embellies on it from Tim Holtz Spooky tree die( love it) Magnolia Houses,Cuttelbug sun die, Collections bird and mini keyhole tags, lace,stamped clock onto acetate and I have even started using again after sooooo long my Fastener -( found it hidden in one of my craft drawers)-thats the little gold staple thingy holding my ribbon on at the top.
The image is a Hanglar Stanglar, coloured using E04, E08, E09 and E50, E51 and E53.
I am going to enter my tag in the following challenges.....
Copic Creations- Warm colours

I was sooo very excited when my new Magnolia stamps from the latest collection " You Are So Special 2011"- arrived thru the mail from HERE at Bizzy Becs.
I have used the Balloon Backgound Stamp, Loving Border and of course this cutie called Tilda with Big Ribbon, isn't she sweet!!!!!
After a bit of playing this is the card I came up with. The present is an older Magnolia stamp that I just love and use often, I also stamped the balloons twice and then cut them out and then added dimensional magic over the top. The strings are red embroidery Cotton and I have used my Heart nesties behind it all.The paper is from the New Kaiser Collection but this only comes in 12 x 12 size plus   Red glitter cardstock for the  Cuttlebug hearts.The paper lace is German Scrap.
 I decided to stick with the usual Valentine colours of red and White/cream but add a touch of brown.
 Images coloured with Copics- R24-R29 with E37 for depth. E50-E55 for her dress. E44, 43 and E41 for her hair. Spica pens- Chocolate and Sand and Blender"0". Dimensional Magic and embroidery cotton for the balloons.

Hi Everyone,

I am a posting this a few hours early  but it's pretty close to the 5th of the Month, and we all know what that time is.
YES  it's time again for 
February's Challenge over at Bizzy Becs, HERE.
The challenge is a fabulous sketch for you to play along with and Bec has a fabulous prize on offer once again for one lucky winner.
I really enjoyed paying with this sketch so much so that I couldn't resist making 2 cards
.I have used Bizzy Becs - Blue Butterfly Image from the Sweet Love Collection, Key to my Heart!You can purchase this image HERE
My first card here was sorta based around the old "Gidget" movies  because this girl reminds me of her, OK....hands up if  anyone does remember those old movies!!!!
I remember that there was one called "Gidget goes Hawaiian".
I made the background thru my Adobe photoshop, a bit of twine, a palm tree and some flowers were used to complete the card.
 My second card uses the Bizzy Becs Digi  Ticket Sentiment and Bizzy Becs Music Sheet Downloads along with a Tim Holtz die, Magnolia Love words stamp and Stickles glitter.
Please POP on over to the blog and check out the other fabulous cards from the DT gals.
