Waiting Tilda at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and WINNER!!!!!


A magnificently happy Saturday to each of you!!! I hope you are into a splendid weekend!! It has been so gorgeous here that I could really get accustomed to winter being over----but I know that is not the case so I will save my cartwheels for a bit longer!!!

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are being sponsored by Crafts U Love which is providing a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant and the theme is LOVE YOU!!! It’s a bit late for Valentine's Day but your card does not have to be a Valentine's card--it could be marriage, anniversary, engagement, love for a friend/child/parent/pet or whatever the Love You theme inspires for you. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar or Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prize. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday, February 24.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is SU and PTI and all background panels are machine stitched. I used the very sweet Waiting Tilda, which is now available at Magnolia-licious, stamped her on XPress It Blending Card, colored her with Copics adding a touch of Stickles to the lace and Glossy Accents to her shoes, and cut her out with triple Nesties. The background doily is a diecut and for the horizontal I used PTI twill ribbon, adding a White Heart Shaped Bead to the double flat bow to top the 2 tiny SU tags. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts and resting on MS punched branches: Heather Stem Flowers (which I have shortened), 15mm Open Roses, and 25mm Open Rose all airbrushed with Copics for deeper color, and adding a wee heart bead for continuity. Finally the front was finished with Self-Adhesive Rhinestones which admittedly I always attach with Matte Accents no matter how adhesive they are.

NOTE!!! I am so sorry that I did not mention the name of the die company in my posting...I really try to tell you where EVERYTHING is from...I must have been half asleep when I wrote it...BUT anyway this die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and is called Italian Flourish Doily!


For the inside I have used the same papers and extras...on the first panel I used yet another diecut with ribbon and bow, heart bead, and dangling silver heart charm. On the jotting panel is another bow with simple heart bead.

I hope you like my little card and will decide to join in with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge. We would love for you to drop by for a visit to see the absolutely lovely DT Sample Cards this week!

WINNER of the Pink Basket SWEET STUFF!!!!
Thank you so very much for all of your sweet and kind comments and I want you to know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. But we have allowed Mr. Random.org to select the winner of the Pink Basket SWEET STUFF and the winner is.....

131. Marjolein soooooo is this basket going to the Netherlands??? Just a guess from what I can read!!!
Congratulations, Marjolein!! Please contact me before Monday, February 21 at 8 AM EST so that I can get your package to you right away!

NOTE: From so many email questions I would like to tell you that I have never sold any cards that I have made. If I don't have a particular reason or recipient for a card I have made, I typically send it to one of my FOLLOWERS who has made a special request for the card through email to me. I'm sure that many of the recipients of my cards will attest to that for you. So in the future if you have an affinity for one of my cards or a special request, all you need to do is send me an email or note it in the CBox and if it has not been requested then it will be on its way to you.

Thank you so much for coming by today and hope you will want to come back often! I have added the CBox to my right sidebar in case any of you have questions...I will check it often and try my best to respond to you right away! Gosh I hope it works for more than a mere TEST for me!!! Would one of you sweeties, try it and see if it works???? Thanks!! lol Remember tomorrow is the SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious which is a fun giveaway each week for some lucky visitor! And I am thinking that you will LOVE the prize that is being offered by Diana at Magnolia-licious!!! I can't wait to share it with you!!! And I am contemplating some Jacque SWEET STUFF for the first of the week!! Have a marvelous Saturday and a fun-filled weekend! Big hugs coming your way!!!

Hi Jacque~

I say do cart wheels when the time calls for it! We don't have to save them all up for one day...think how dizzy we would get! lol

This is a gorgeous card! Love is appropriate for any and every day! Tilda is adorable! I love that special doily you are using! It is amazing with all of those flowers!

I think any of your cards would be welcome on my "Wall of Inspiration" in my art room. Every card you make is really so beautiful, and must have so much of your time into each one! I don't know how you make as many cards as you do, as detailed and wonderful as you do...and post them for us to see! You are a wonderful artist!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
