Accessorize This!!

Hello & Here's to Another Fabulous Week in November!!  And another busy week too, hee hee---but rarely is there a week that isn't busy for any of us, right?!  I worked the entire day yesterday to catch up on my to-do list and got 99% of my stuff done so that's a load off of my shoulders.  I missed going out on a 70 degree day yesterday, but I did have my windows open & enjoyed it that way!  It's not often we get 70 degree weather in mid-November, especially after all the rain & cold we got from Ida--it was fabulous to see the sun again!



NewsBitz:

-Pink Cat Studio is releasing some mini-stamp kits that are "Winter Lily Themed" today--they are fun & super cute!  Go HERE to see them all!

-Another Etsy Store Spotlight--Today it's New Hampshire Woods Creations!  Not only does she make fabulous birch bark products, dried flower arrangements & other goodies for your home but the Simmering Potpourri is OUT of THIS WORLD GOOD! It smells super yummy and I had to order some of her lil' birch bark basket ornaments filled with rose hips too!

-Read to the end of this post to see how to win some YUMMY BLOG CANDY from me :o)

-I will continue to keep this up everyday, but I am having a Holiday Crafter's Open House on Saturday, December 5th from noon til' 5 pm (come for an hour or three, but drop by if you can) I will have my 10 (yes 10 this year) Xmas trees up, house decorated, mulled cider brewing & lots of sweets to eat along with lots of fun chatting & meeting other crafters from this area!  Just email me if you'd like to come so I can send ya directions & have a head count! (I live in Leesburg, VA right off of Rte. 7 in the Lansdowne on the Potomac neighborhood) Make it a trip for ya too--the Leesburg Outlets are 5 mins away, Dulles Towne Center Mall 10 mins away, Tyson's Corner Mall 25 mins away!! (and a big Joann's & Michaels too)

******************************
"Accessories Make the Card" Blog Hop



So today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun & fabulous BLOG HOP for you today called "Accessories Make the Card"!  This means that we ONLY used Magnolia Accessory stamps on our projects--NO Tildas, Edwins, Lg. Animals or Snowmen on our cards!  It's a great opportunity to use your accessory stamps as the main image & see how creative you can get with them.  Make sure and finish the hop at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE to see how you can participate in the fun as well!

I chose to make 2 cards today, because after I made the first one & had such a good time--I decided to make a second, LOL!  I pulled out this fabulous "Watering Can" image to make a feminine card that can be used for a birthday, hello, thinking of you or thankyou!! (I couldn't find this on the Magnolia-licious site although it came from Diana, but I'm sure Diana can get it in if you ask nicely!)  I love this color combo together--so fresh & sunny!  The dp is by Stampin Up and the flowers are Prima--I added some pearls and some fabulous scroll punch-outs!  The border was done with a MS border punch and of course I added some stickles for sparkle (Copic colors used are E43,E42,E41,E40 and Y38,Y32 and G99,G94,G20)



After making a feminine card I decided to go ahead and forge thru making a masculine birthday card, which I hadn't done in AGES!  But I thought this image "Row of Trees" made a fabulous image for a guy card--simple & elegant.  I pulled out more SU dp in pinstripes and distressed it with my Tonic Distress Tool and then inked all the edges.  I kept the card simple since it's for a guy but used lots of texture like the CB embossing "argyle" folder and ragged twill ribbon!  Diamond glaze on the copic colored trees make them pop--sentiment is by PTI's "Everyday Classics"!  Perfect for any man in your life I think--whaddya think? This fun birthday card also qualifies for the "Just Us Girls" Challenge this week--dry embossing & a birthday theme-yay!!

Now if you came to my blog from Jacque then your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Kerry!!  And make sure to visit the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog as well when you're all finished up!

And if you leave a comment on this post, I'll be picking a random commenter that WILL WIN SOME Delish BLOG CANDY (a lil' this & that of my favorite things like charms, buttons, ribbons, paper & a stamp or two)!!  You have until Friday, Nov.20th to do so!! FUN, FUN all around!!

  29. A delightful pair, Suzanne and beautifully colored. The row of trees is gorgeous, simple and just perfect for that guy in your life. While the watering can is excellent for a gal - I can envision her kneeling in the garden with straw hat and gloves working away on her flowers. Beautiful set. Thanks for an oportunity to win some candy...

  150. Wow, so many comments. I just wanted to give you a huge THANKS! I have bought my first lot of copics and love them thanks to your suggestions for beginners. Needless to say I now need more. Thanks also for taking the time for your tutorials. This makes it so much easier to learn how to blend and which colours to use. Just love them. So...THANKS!!

  151. Oh goodness! I am always so tickled with your cards!!! Thank you for inspiring me.

  152. I'm in the same boat as Kylie. After watching your YouTube Copic videos I have become addicted! I started by ordering 32 markers and had to order 19 more the next week! I love them! It is going to take lots of practice to get anywhere near as talented as you but I'm going to give it my best shot!

    I look forward to getting ScrapBitz each day to see what wonderful creations are in it! I love the watering can stamp. The butterfly on the handle is adorable! The masculine card is very nice. I love the coloring on the row of trees.

    Thank you for sharing your amazing gift of crafting!

  153. Great masculine card idea with the trees. I always need new inspiration when it comes to guys who don't have sports, hunting, fishing, or any other easy hobby to stamp for. Who doesn't like trees? Thanks!

  154. Oooh oooh oooh - WHERE can I get that watering can image?>!>?! I LOVE it - am doing a bridal shower for my DD and the theme is "Garden party" and all the decorations are watering cans - this would be perfect for the invite - LOVE to know where it came from - meanwhile - GREAT job with both cards and the JUGS challenge! Thanks SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls. Hope to see you again on Saturday for our next challenge!

  157. Great idea of using those accessory stamps. They can stand alone and look great by themselves. Great job as usual with your cards and great inspiration.
