Tulip Love Tilda

Hello all,

This is my last card in my "thinking of you series".  I'm planning on working on some spring birthday card's and scrapbook pages in the next week or so.   Are there any other scrapbookers out there? 

This stamp is from the last Magnolia release.  It is called Tulip Love.  I was organizing my embossing folders and thought she paired perfectly with this old folder.  I placed the paper so the flowers are actually depressed rather than raised on the card.  I thought it gave an interesting texture.   I made a video a while back showing how I color my Tilda stamps.  You can check that our here if interested.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, E21, R20

Mystery Flower

Hello friends,

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.  It was certainly surreal.  We usually spend Easter with extended family.  This was the first Easter we spent at home.   We did our best to make it special. We made a bunny cake, colored eggs, and had a visit from the Easter Bunny.   Hopefully this quarantine thing will not become a regular thing.  Nothing makes up for the missing time with family.  Sending big HUGS out to all those missing family.  You are not alone.

Today's is card #4 in my thinking of you series.  This stamp is from Flourish stamps.  I've had this stamp for years and it is only seeing ink now.   I'm really enjoying chipping aways at my unused pile.  I have no idea what kind of flower it is.  I just picked a favorite shade of pink and colored it up.  What do you think?  Anyone know what kind of flower it is?

Copics used:

Pink: R24, R22, R20, R00
Water: BG13, BG11, BG10

Life if Ruff... eat cake!

Happy Easter, 

This weekend is a bit tough for many of us.  We are used to spending this holiday weekend with family.   Sadly, we are unable to do so because of of quarantine.  We decided to do something different today to make the best of this unusual time.  We made a 3 layer bunny cake.  There are photos below if you are interested.  

I love this little puppy all curled up on his bed.  He has such a sweet little face.  I hope you enjoy him too!  The copic colors are listed below. 

Copics used:

Blue: B18, B16, B14, B12
Ears: R30, R00
Red: R37
Grey: N7, N5, N3, N1

Our cake:

We had a little extra batter so we made some cupcakes.

He may be stealing licks of icing off the cake.  Check out his face.
