In line with Kim's new doodle, we have set a mini challenge to use Wee Weezi the Friendly Welsh Dragon in an ATC.
I saved the image to my PC, and sized it to fit on an ATC in my graphic package, I then printed 3 copies onto some Anna Griffin paper that I had, I then decoupage Wee Weezi to make him stand out from the ATC.
I placed him onto some left over paper from Kay miller.
A ribbon along the one edge, some peel offs corners and borders to finish
On Tilda`S Sunday challenge , this week we had to use beads somewhere on our card .
I have chosen to add the beads to Tildas Dress, also to the center of the flowers.
The papers I have used are from Pinkpetticoats , also the flowers came from their big bloomer collection.
I ran some lilac paper through my cuttlebug ( I love this machine) I then glittered some of the paisley embossing and matted it onto some silver mirri card. I also added some pastel threads around the mat
I then arranged the flowers around the mat, and placed my stamped Tilda in position, she just had to have a flower of her own .
I finished with a sentiment from K and company bits box

This set is called hopes and dreams. I printed one of the papers onto my cardstock to make the base of the card, I then printed a two matching paper to make the mat and the ribbon strip, the topper also comes from this set.I then used a peel off and some blue gems to add the finishing touch

Well everyone has been changing their blogs, and giving them an update.
I have been a bit afraid to do this as last time I did I lost all my links and stuff, so I had to put it back the way it was ( thank goodness I had save the template).
This time everything was fine just had to jiggle my colums a bit.
As you can see I have decided to go nice and summery with a hint of lemon and an old parchment look.
I also think it shows the photos up better than the old blue that was there before.
I hope you like it, nothing like a bit if a spring clean and shake up, now for the house( anyone want to come do my house, ) I thought not
I used some of Kay Miller designs papers, this kit also had the little cute house and tree with it as well as some lovely backing papers.
I added both the house and tree to the background papers using my graphics programme, I also printed out a second house.
I then coloured a hanglar image using some water colours,then I decoupaged the second house and girl onto the front of the card.
I finished it off by adding the Just for you stamp at the bottom

(but if you are struggling with this then your magnolia image ( or 1 of if using more than 1 )may have 1 more colour of your choice.
Once again work must include a magnolia stamp, and could be anything as long as it is arty crafts.
I used some Two of the black and white designs from pink petticoats ( lola boudour).
I trimed the flower one and layered it over the dotty paper.
We were able to use one colour, so i used a reddy brown for tidas Hair, i also swept it lighty across the basket.
I then overlapped her onto some mat black card, and finished with a birthday banner
The paper came from digital scrapbooking place, the title came from Kay miller, I have just discovered Kay`s web sit she has some great kits to download. You will find her in my shopping links section.
The picture is my hubby in Tenerife, we went up to see mount teide, we had a great day and saw some stunning views.

We could also make a matching atc if we liked.I have not done an ATcC but might get one done later today.
This is my first card, I used papers from pink petticoats, and a lola image, I cut out a circle frame and put it through my cuttlebug, I then arranged lola inside.
I must admit to not liking the finished card.
This was my second go at the challenge, I took the first card apart and added the pieces to some pearlescent red card, a few gems were added to eacg corner and a happy birthday tag.
I am very happy with this one, I think the other was way to busy for my taste, but I am sure some of you will of liked the first better
I have used some William Morris papers, Stamped and coloured my tilda using marvey pens.
I then matted her onto some green mirri card, I had a large bag of paper flowers, so they just had to go as an extra on this card

I used some peach and white pearlescent card.
Made a peach bouquet from some paper flowers and added a nice orange feather.
The Image came from Joanna sheens fashion bouquet cd

Decoupage Tilda & Co
Now for this week..... I would love to see you decoupage with your magnolia stamps.
This could be as simple as having a Tilda or Edwin, that is holding something, you then stamp that image out twice, cut out the item he/she is holding and then layer it up with foam pads or silicone glue, to give a 3d effect
Or you could go totally wild and build up lot’s of layers.
Please remember your work could be a card, Layout(scrapbook page) Atc, Altered Item, anything you like! alsong as your work has Magnolia Stamp on there somewhere
Here is my first attempt at one of their challenges
I stamped tilda onto the same paper that I used for the backing, I also stamped 2 images onto some plain card, these I coloured using marvy pens, I trimmed out the dress from the first image , decoupaged it over one of the coloured images, I then cut the basket, head and hair from the second, then I finished it all off with some matching ribbon
This Photo shows the layers
I enjoyed this challenge, I love my tilda stamp and hope to join in again, I have put a link to tilda & Co on my challenge section

Im using the bookatrix again, also the seven sins, I just love all the images on these sheets.
I also treated myself to a cuttle bug this week, so i ran some of the pages through the birthday embossing folder, before adding the decoupage,
I also made a gold box for the card
