Time to play!!!

I had a bit of time on my hands today TO PLAY, no dt work, just playing.....
When i went through my google reader first thing this morning i was inspired by the cards that Judy is making on her Blog for classes that they are doing in the area she lives in, now knowing that me being on the other side of the globe i will never have a chance to attend one of her classes i attempted to do what she has done.  I stamped onto kraft and then colored the image with prisma pencils, i thought it would be real difficult to color and not have the kraft paper show through, but was pleasantly surprised.
My second card, as we all know by now, when i have free time on my hands what i like to do is play with my newest Maggies.  I made an easel card with Brother and sister, added hearts cut with nesties and Marianne designs, the L"amour sentiment is a Su sentiment stamp, i added lots of bling by making flourishes with glue and then sticking down little rhinestones in different sizes and shapes.  I also added some stickles stardust to the pocket of Tilda's little dress and the lace under her dress.

For the isnide i made a little pocket to add a tag to, i then added another die cut heart and gathered some gingham ribbon around it to add a sentiment to.

I will be entering this card into the challenge on Magnolia stamp lovers
Papeertake weekly: 3 of a kind, i have three hearts, three ribbons, 3 blue and white roses, etc
have a great week bloggers

Your Maggie Easel card is just stunning. How every clever to add a little pocket and a tag! The hearts are fabulous, especially the gathered gingham ribbon! Fabulous work!
