Tilda With Chick at Friday Sketchers 96 AND WINNER!!



A very Happy Friday to everyone! I hope your week has been a magnificent one and also hope that you are looking forward to a marvelous weekend. The weather here is beautiful and the flowers are starting to bloom....please tell me that SPRING has arrived!!!!

This week at Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the very talented Tanja who has given us a fun and challenging sketch. I hope that you will join with us this week so that we can see how you interpret this sketch. There is a lovely prize from Lacey at Stamp and Create so come on over!!

For my DT Sample card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Hippity Hoppity Collection by We R Memory Keepers. I machine stitched all background panels, added some lovely trim which was a gift from a super talented friend, Suzan, some bows and an Easter basket charm. I used Tilda with Newly Hatched Chicken from Magnolia-licious. Gosh, I just love every single stamp in this Hoppity Collection! They are all so cute and so many of them can be used for other seasons and occasions as well as for Easter. Tilda was stamped on Cryogen white, colored with Copics with a touch of Glossy Accents on the wee egg, cut out and propped up on stacked Nesties. I added turquoise calla lilies and pink roses to a couple of white satin leaves for the bottom flower treatment. To finish the front, I added turquoise pearls to soften the corners!

I hope you like my little creation and will want to try your hand at the sketch. Please visit the other DT members and check out their magnificent interpretations of Tanja's sketch:

Carole, Claudia, Inge, Jacqueline, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja

And now for the WINNER of the Flower Soft Sweet Stuff...

CONGRATULATIONS TO......Handmade by Vivi so it looks like this package is going way down south to BRAZIL!!!!! Vivi, please contact me before Tuesday, April 6 at Midnight DST so that I can get your package to you right away!!

My sincere thanks to each of you for dropping by to see what's happening in my little corner of the world. I appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for all of your support. Tomorrow I will post my Just Magnolia DT Sample Card and I bet there may be a surprise for you as well. Have a delightful evening and I hope to see you again real soon! Big hugs for all!!
