Tilda in Summer Rain at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and RE-WINNER


Happy Friday everyone...they are all happy, aren't they!!! I hope you are ready for a magnificent weekend! We have had some terrific thunderstorms with wind and now I have a huge branch from a neighbors tree right through my perennial garden and I am NOT happy at all!!! Flat lavender is not a pretty sight!!! But I will not think of that right now!!!

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are being hosted by Michelle who has given us paper-piecing as our challenge this week. So come on over to the challenge blog and play along with us. There is a very nice prize from Dies to Die For and this just may be your lucky week!!! I look forward to seeing you there and we would love to see your paper-piecing projects.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base; all double matting is PTI Pure Poppy and Blueberry Sky; and the DP is all from the LANTIV-Life in the Country Collection by Maja Designs. The floral is a 12X12 pattern and the dots and stripes are from a 6X6 paper pad, which is a new venture for Maja...I love them all...Thanks so much, Gunilla!!! The background panels are machine stitched. The image I used is the darling little Tilda in Summer Rain from the Sweet Rainbow Collection over at Magnolia-licious. She as well as her MINI counterpart are both available right now!! She was colored with Copics but her dress, boots and umbrella are paper-pieced with dots. The rain drops are Prisma glitter, and the puddle is topped with Glossy Accents. She was cut out with triple Nesties. For the horizontal I used a lace and threaded it with PTI Blueberry Sky satin, tied into a double flat bow. The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: Poppy Stem Flowers, Aster Daisies and Heart and Pear Shaped Pins all resting on MS punched branches. I just love how those flowers match the DP...poppies and aster daisies!!!!For the corners I used a metal cornerpiece from my stash and Self-Adhesive Pearls.


On the first panel on the inside you can more clearly see the lace I used on the front--again, just a ribbon with double flat bow and an aster daisy. On the jotting panel I used a ribbon label threaded with the same ribbon and stamped with Wishing You Text, adding a double round Nestie with pearls.

I hope you like my little card and will decide to join with us over at
Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge. Please drop by and check out the lovely cards made by the DT showing their use of paper-piecing...they are beautiful!!!
