Gone Fishing with Tilda at Totally Papercraft and Hobbystempels.

Oh.. I know... I'm late.... 
I hope you all forgive me... this past week I was a lot of time in the hospital for more tests again.
We hope that these will be the last ones and that I will get more results coming Tuesday.
So when I know more on Tuesday I will share with you what the future will bring for me... till then.. you just have to wait and wonder with me.

And since today is Friday there has to be a card here for the new challenge at Totally Papercraft Challenge blog! This weeks theme is stripes and dots... and there is another fabulous sponsor there!

So on the last moment I made a card with a Magnolia image. Now that is not a type of stamps that I use much. But this Tilda gone fishing has something great... she is cute and tough! And that is what I like about her! And then I got papers from for cards for their blog. And Oh boy... this green is way out of my comfort zone!! I tell you that... But I put on my brave shoes and start working with them..
Colored Tilda with my Derwent pencils... and here she is!

Tilda is Colored with: Derwent potloden
Nestabilities: Round and scalloped that were cut in two and glued wide.
Green flowers : From stash

Have fun with and a great weekend, and don't forget that we still have a great challenge HERE and HERE
With love

Take a Latte with me and Latte Monkey

When I first say the Monkey stamps I thought... what do I do with them..... 
Really... I wasn't so into coloring animals.... But the fun part of being in a DT is that you sometimes need to work outside your comfort zone...

So when Christine of C.C. Designs at All That Scraps send out these buch of brand new Digital Monkey Images... I told myself to grow up and put my heart in them....

And I have to say.... I'm hooked!!! Can you imagine... these little rascals are so much fun to work with! 
I started to color them and couldn't stop working with them! 
Now how about that....

Here is a card that I made with Latte Monkey... I have a very bad habbit... and that is drinking Latte Machiatto every day! So He and I.... we just found each other...
Want to give one of those cuties a try... you can find them HERE in the section June 2011

Now what do you think? Adorable huh!
I  colored him with my fabulous copic markers
