Traveling Tilda Says hello!!!



Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I hope that everything is very well with each of you and hope you are enjoying your week!!! Gosh!! It's so great to be back!! I have so much paperwork to go through and there is still a long list but...will do the rest in a timely fashion--whatever that is!! haha I would like to thank all of you for all the many kindnesses you have extended to me!! HUGS!!!!!!!!!

I just couldn't get my Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge card done last Friday where Pops is the wonderful hostess and gave us the anything goes with the option of Coffee and Cream. I don't drink the stuff but I tried to use as much coffee and cream as I could on my card!! So if you haven't dropped over, there is still time!!! There is a very nice prize awaiting some lucky participant!!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Blissful Pad by Authentique, and all background panels are machine stitched.I used the darling little #377 Traveling Tilda from Magnolia-licious, stamped her twice, colored her with Copics, and propped up both images to give her alot of dimension. By the way, the new Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection is now available for pre-order and it won't be long before they are ready to be shipped out!! Yipppeee!!! The Little Tilda is sitting in a Marianne Designs diecut which is embossed and decorated with WOC Self Adhesive Pearls which come in the most gorgeous color combinations. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Small Curly Wild Rose, 1" Wild Roses, Daffodils, Tulips, and Aster Daisies. The front was finished with Decorative Metal Corners, and a double flat bow of 1" Organza Ribbon.


For the inside I used the same papers and elements...But a point I have to make is that I really didn't like the pink splotch on upper right on the gold gingham paper...but it a part of the distressing on the paper....sigh!

Thank you all so very much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon and more often!!! Please remember that this is October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month so you know what to do about that!!!!!!! If you don't, just ask me!!!! Soon you will see some PINK right here, so don't miss it!!! Sending big hugs your way!!!

G'day Jacque, it is because of you I placed a good sized order to Magnolia-licious for the first time. Looking forward to receiving it, but bad on the money side of things. Now I have seen your beautiful card with Traveling Tilda, I am going to put her on my wish list. I would be pleased if I could colour her in as half as good as you did. You really do a fantastic job with you cards. Keep well.

Oooohhhh, this is precious in so many ways! I think this is an adorable image! I love her little hat! And, that circle you have her sitting in is Fabulous!!! I love that you placed the pearls around that beautiful throne for her! And, those flowers...Jacque...I don't know if it comes so naturally to you because of your love of roses, but this collection of flowers is wonderfully fresh! I love the color story...and those tulips popped off of the card right at me...love tulips! And, I just like the unique combination of flowers you used! The sheer toasted almond colored ribbon is beautiful. And, I love the inside of the card...after all, there is that beautiful die cut circle and wonderful sheer ribbon again! This is a soft, incredible card, Jacque! I love it.

He IS Able!
