Summer .... I wish! - Addicted To Stamps DT Card & More CANDY :)


 Good morning peeps,
I don't know where the last few days have gone! Ali & I had a craft day on Thursday which was lovely, full of the usual waffle & gossip & I'm sure it was the first time we didn't end up yelling at each other, or did we, we do it so much I loose track lol.
I had the bright idea of "cataloguing" my Magnolia stamps by stamping them all twice (one for reference & one for masking) & storing the images in a folder according to type e.g standing Tilda's, sitting Tilda's, backgrounds etc to make it easy for me to see them as several times I have bought duplicates not realising I already have them, but I had a bit of a shock when I realised what a mammoth task that will be! Four hours in after lots of "aaaah she's pretty" and black hands from the ink I think I'm almost half way through stamping my standing Tilda's, and I think I may need to buy a bigger folder lol.

Today I have a card to share which is my 
DT card & this fortnight our challenge is

I am also blogging my card as a midway reminder for 
as there is one week left to play in our challenge
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Magnolia
Flowers - Magnolia & Wild Orchid
Seam Binding & Button - The Ribbon Girl
Sparkle - crystal glamour dust
Fancy Corner - e-crafts online
I wanted to give Tilda's skin a darker colour to make her look more authentic, & for those that want them here are the Copic colours -
skin - E15, E13, E11, E00, R85, R83, hair - C7, C5, C3, C0, Sari - RV63, RV00, RV000, RV0000, elephant - C3, C1, C00, C000, R85, R81, leaves - G94, G85, G91, butterflies - RV55, RV02, RV00, GOO, B52
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
TOMIC - Tina's sketch & fabric (cheesecloth)
Card Makin' Mamas - something old ( all stamps)

As I have been a terrible blogger while battling the side effects of my new painkillers & you have been so lovely leaving me encouraging comments I have a little thank you to share which is more mini candy, a brand new Belles & Whistles stamp
 Fairy Wishes
There is no need to advertise it peeps just leave me a comment to let me know you want to be entered in the draw and I will announce the winner in a few days.
I have changed my comments to the pop up box as some peeps said they are having problems with the embedded comments, trust me to be different I've had problems with pop up's lol.
I am off to put the heating back on, it's soooooooo cold here today.
Thanks for stopping by

  18. Wow - love you bright colors of blue and pink ! Have never seen those stamps before (it's been a while since I bought Magnolia, kind of trying to use the ones I have - while I still remember what I have... LOL). "Cataloguing" the stamps is always a good idea. I have but my mounted stamps on the wall on small shelves, but the unmounted is a different story. Having them mainly in black binders bought from Sunday Int (but I think they are no longer manufactured) and labeled outside, but...

    Would very much like to get a ticket in your lovely give-away. Thanks for the chance. (I have a candy too if you want to join)

    Have a nice Sunday !
    :-) Nina

    PS - about problems with comments. I had the same problem and changed the settings like you did. BUT I think the problem is/was related to Internet Explorer (IE), I changed to Google Chrome and have no problems now....

  61. Gorgeous card Mandy! Love the colors and the stunning details. I've been away a while myself so I'm not sure what the pain meds are for, but I hope they are helping. I'm on muscle relaxers myself and somedays it's all I can do to get out of bed, so I know how it goes. No need to enter me in the candy as I already have her, but I wanted to tell you how pretty I think your card it. Hope all is better soon!
