Darling Tilda Waits on Her Valentines!!!
Happy Sunday everyone!!! I hope you are having a delightful weekend! I am crafting around waiting on the next snow and ice storm which I am hoping doesn't materialize...but I have gotten alot of things done this weekend just in case...sigh!!!
I don't usually post over the SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious but I wanted to let you know that the brand new You Are So Special Collection has arrived in the shop at Magnolia-licious and are flying out the door. So please jump over there and check out all of the little cuties!!!!
I have a little something different for you today which I think turned out kinda cute. I started with one of the dollar red mailboxes from Target or Michaels and decorated it for Valentine's Day to be filled with yummy chocolates or some festive Valentine embellishments. On the front side I used Leaning Tilda masked into the Romantic Window from the You Are So Special Collection at Magnolia-licious. The image was colored with Copics, adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles for the lace trim. To give the scene a bit of texture and dimension I added 10mm Open Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. To adhere the panel to the mailbox I used the amazingly wonderful 6"X6" Scor-Tape Sheets from Magnolia-licious. That stuff adheres when nothing else will!!!! For the roof shingles I overlapped rows of Puffy Red Hearts in Line--sometimes I wonder about my brain!!! hahahah I then bordered the image with ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon January RIBBON CLUB Assortment.
On the back of the mailbox I used Love Envelope and Tag With Heart both from the Love Collection 2009, colored them with Copics and added a touch of Stickles and a single heart from the line of hearts. This gives a nice spot for a sweet note to the Special Someone!! Finally I tied miscellaneous ribbons up the flag stick. I also left the little flag blank so that I can add the recipient's name.
If you have not thrown your name in for this week's wonderful surprise at SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious, please come on over and do so before Tuesday at midnight. You never know when it might just be your lucky week!! And with so many new choices over at Magnolia-licious, this week is even more special!!!
Thank you so much for dropping by and I would love to know what you think of my little mailbox! It is always such a joy to know that you have been by!!! Have a very special Sunday and until the next time, I send big hugs for you!!!
