On The Workbench

Hiya folks! I want to share what's going on 'round these parts lately. I have a Halloween shadow box house to finish up (see the arrow pointing to the woefully empty attic cubby) before it goes in the shop.


Plus, there's a table full of stick pins in various states. Love the new wee skulls! See the awesome large green skull? It was a gift from the teeny tiny skull supplier (er, the skulls are teeny tiny, not the supplier...) and I can't wait to pop it on a pin. It's greeeeeen!


Thanks muchly for your visit today. I hope you're having a beautiful day!

Cheers,
Susan

Tilda's Ice Cream Cone

Hiya folks! We've had gorgeous weather here on the East Coast that's been leaning a bit toward crisp fall temperatures. I'm not quite ready for the cold so I'm going to imagine hot sunshine for an excuse to enjoy a yummy ice cream cone with Tilda!


These vibrant colors are found on Bo Bunny's "Vicky B" collection. I love the brightness of orange, pink and lime!


This sweet Magnolia Tilda was colored with Prismacolor pencils and layered up for that 3D effect. The crochet flower -a gift from a dear friend- adds a great touch of texture. You can imagine the butterfly and ladybug charms coming to life and flitting around this lovely little garden!


An extension of the "garden" is found inside along with an area for a sweet sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a gorgeous day!

Cheers,
Susan

Sweet Anniversary Music Card

Hi folks! Today is our 16th wedding anniversary and I'm still deeply in love with The Man. Awww....

Instead of loading up even more sappy stuffs, I'll share this sweet little Tilda with you.

 
The paper is My Mind's Eye "Indie Chic: Citron" with Bazzill solids. This MME collection has one of my favorite color combinations of teal and coral. The music notes are washi tape glued to card stock and then rounded here and there to show movement.


Tilda was colored with Prismacolor pencils and layered for a 3D effect - even the wings are layered! I used another Willow Folk crochet flower (as on yesterday's card) but the cards were actually made weeks apart. :-)


The inside coordinates with the front - I just love love love this swirly floral paper!

Tonight were off to a lovely dinner and a little sweet music of our own. *blush* I hope everyone has a fantastic loving weekend!

Cheers,
Susan

Peeking into a Fairy Meadow

Hi folks! I have a new card to share today, made with what's possibly the last of my Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime collection.


 This little girl was lucky enough to be welcomed into the fairy meadow to play, but a fairy elder is keeping a close eye on the fun and games!


I used a Jolee's resin frame that I've planned on painting for ages, but this as-purchased color worked perfectly. The crochet flower is from my friend Nicole at Willow Folk. She has a great selection of colors and sizes in her shop!


Inside there's plenty of room for fairy sweet wishes!

Thanks for stopping in today.

Cheers,
Susan
