Tilda Is Anxiously Awaiting Her Valentine Mail!!



Happy Friday everyone!!!! I hope your week has been a fabulous one. Sorry I have been MIA but I have had a fried computer and just got it back today.

This is my DT Sample Card for Friday Sketchers this week and since I am hosting this week, I used MY sketch!! I hope you will hop over and let us see how you interpret my sketch!!

I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is Mulberry Red Hearts on White and a bit of shaped MM from last year's Valentine collection. I colored Sweetheart Tilda from Magnolia-licious with Copics, cut her out, and propped her right up on some heart/lace trim...I also added a couple of kinds of Valentines Day ribbons and made a red rose bouquet with mulberry roses and a piece of lace and tiny ribbon. To the bouquet I added a little Love Tag made with the new SU products, The front was finished with red heart buttons tied with white DMC.




Gosh!!! The mail arrived!! This is one of those little Target mailboxes that I decorated with papers, odds and ends of ribbon, and other embellies and used Dreamy Tilda on the side!! I filled it with special yummies and will send it to someone who leaves a comment below before January 17 at 8 AM EST!!

Please check out all the sample cards posted by the Design team, and hopefully you will play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog where you will find that Stamp and Create is sponsoring a very nice prize this week!
