Tilda in the Garden at Friday Sketchers #137!!


Hello, everyone and a very happy Friday evening to you!! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend! Today was my first day OUT!!! Yipppppeeeee...I went to see my Mom who is in a Life Care Center and enjoyed those hugs!! Gosh, it was great just seeing anyone!!! If I ever see one more snowflake it will be way too many!!

This week at Friday Sketchers #137 we are being hosted by Janneke of the Netherlands who has provided a very fun sketch for us to use. I hope you will pop over and join with us so we can see your interpretation of the sketch. A very nice prize is being given by our week's sponsor, Tickled Pink Stamps.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and the DP is a special gift to me from the very talented and sweet Gunilla of Sweden. It is Mina Vänner Paula 5,7,8 by Maja Design. I just love these papers!!! All major panels were machine stitched. For the horizontal I used 7/8" Old Willow Organza with a double flat bow. The little darling Tilda in the Garden from the new You Are So Special Collection which are right now on pre-order at Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a touch of Stickles for the trim and flowers and Spica Gold for the shoe buckles, and cut out with Nesties....Have you noticed how many times little Tilda gets her shoes on the wrong feet....tooooo cute!!!! The floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts using Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers. To finish the front I added a copper Special Day tag, a Melissa Frances ornament, and parts of a pearl flourish.

Edited to ADD: Oh my goodness, I had 2 emails already asking me about the lace which I forgot to mention...sigh...Sorry!!! That is hand-crocheted lace made by my grandmother about 50-60 years ago and was on an old tablecloth which was no longer useable...so no better place to use it than on one of my cards!!! Right??? Thanks to those who asked me!!!!

The inside is very simple with the addition of complete pearl flourishes on each panel and knotted organza ribbon...


I hope you decide to join us over at Friday Sketchers this week! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Bea, Bev Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja

Thank you so very much for coming by to see what's happening in my world and I hope you will come back often. I am making every attempt to visit each of you also...and what a pleasure that has been!!!! Tomorrow I have the RRR Challenge where I will be using another LOTV stamp and I am so excited to show it to you in the morning. There may be a wee surprise for you as well... Also on Sunday don't forget the SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious where there will be yet another delightful surprise for you--Just click on the icon on my side bar!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs for you!!!

Another home run Jacque. My 20 year old daughter could never get her shoes on the right feet and she has long wavy hair (which she straightens) and her favorite color is green! This card is luscious!!!
Hugs,

Dear Jacque~

What an elegant card you have yet again created. I love the color of the light sage and the ivory. So rich, yet soft. I love how simply, yet in a big way did the inside panels. Sometimes, a flourish and a bit of ribbon is enough, especially when on such luscious paper!

As for this sweet girl-no, I never noticed her backwards shoes! She is so sweetly colored in a matching dress with the design paper. I love the flowers on the page. I really am curious about the piece on the upper right corner. I have not seen anything like it, and would like to know more about it sometime. I wonder if she knows that she is surrounded by flowers and ribbon and swirls of pearls and such. I wonder what would change on her if she did know just how sweetly she is treated!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Christine - Cndn Stamper said...

Your card is so gorgeous. Love the lace but I admit, while I can't think of a better use for the lace if the tablecloth is truly unusable, I don't think I'd be able to cut it myself. (Of course hiding it in the closet is even worse!)

You work wonders with the Magnolia stamps! I have just come back from a shopping spree! Our local craft store has just had a used stamp sale and I was able to get my Tilda's at half price! So very excited to try them out!

Gina L said...

Wow, I am jealous of that lace. I scour antique stores and flea markets for old lace like that, and here you found some on an old tablecloth your gramma made. What a talented lady she must have been! I guess it runs in the family!

Jacque, I hold you completely responsible for my ever growing love of Tilda!!!!!!! I wasn't keen on her for a long time, but have grown to love her & will be buying more & swopping with friends. Just bought Tilda goes shopping & the Boutique stamp, which I am going to play with shortly. So when hubby looks at the bank balance, I can blame you...ok????? lol xxxx
