An Adorable Wrapped Tilda at Friday Sketchers 78

Happy Friday, Everyone!!! I hope that each of you has had a wonderful week and are planning a very productive yet fun weekend! I have been away for several days and I am very happy to report that there has been some improvement in my Dad!! So my sincere thanks to each of you for your thoughts, best wishes, and prayers!

Today is Week 78 of Friday Sketchers and I am happy to tell you that I am hosting this week. So please come on over and join us by using my sketch and linking your card back to us with Mr Linky. I would just love to see your interpretation of the sketch!! You are welcome to turn the sketch any way you might wish and just have fun with it. Please remember to link back to Friday Sketchers in your posting in order to be eligible for the wonderful prize from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.

For my DT sample card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting is Dark Sage Prismatics and SU Real Red. The DP is from the new Magnolia "Under The Mistletoe Collection"--Lingonberry and Green Christmas Plaid (though I call them These papers are available for pre-order at Magnolia-licious as the Christmas-Winter Paper Pack. All panels are machine stitched after distressing the DP with white acrylic paint...I tried all kinds of white inks and they just did not work as well as the paint. Of course, this may just be my preference. This darling little Tilda is Wrapped Tilda from the new Christmas Collection this year over at Magnolia-licious. This collection is just gorgeous so you better hop over there and see for yourself!!!

Tilda was stamped twice, colored with Copics (see below), and cut out so that I could prop her up with dimensional tape. She also has a bit of Christmas Red Stickles on the big bow. I added a wide red satin picot ribbon, then dark olive satin ribbon, and topped them with a narrow red velvet ribbon. Finally I added red poinsettias which I covered with Shimmerz and placed red rhinestone poinsettias in the centers, a velvet bow with a silver stocking charm, and red dew drops to the corners.

On the inside of the card, the panels are also machine stitched. On the first panel I added smaller poinsettias also painted with Shimmerz and Gold Stickles centers and the same ribbons as the front. On the second panel I added ribbons and for the jotting panel I used the Christmas Lingonberry stamp from the Magnolia Christmas 2008collection and a small red velvet bow.

These are the Copics used for both Tilda and the Lingonberry.

For my fellow Maggie lovers, I would like to share with you that the DT of Magnolia-licious will be having a blog hop on Monday, November 16 so I hope you can drop by and see what we have done with some of our Maggie accessory stamps. You know how much I love to see you here!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my world today!! I appreciate each of you much more than I can ever tell you. I love to read what you have to say about my projects and hope you will return often. May you all have a delightful weekend and until the next time...bunches of Maggie hugs!!!!
