Magnolia Pink Friday.......


Wow what a beautiful day to wake up to. Spring has definitely sprung it is glorious! I hope you are feeling spring where you are too.

I am totally in love with this sweet Tilda that I had to make another card with her.

I have stamped my Magnolia image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford watercolour paper. I have coloured her in with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with tattered rose. I have edged everything with vintage photo. The teeny butterflies are a punch. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. Claire my daughter bought me this gorgeous ribbon from Bombay Duck as she immediately thought of Magnolia when she saw it and I think she is so right. I love it.

I have received this award from the most lovely and talented Ingrid.

Ingrid  thank you, you are most kind in sending this my way.

Thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a most brilliant weekend! I will be teaching at Crafts U Love tomorrow. I am so looking forward to meeting everyone!

Simply beautiful Kim!!!, wonderful colours, beautiful Tilda and stunning details.
I just love this Tilda with her little broken antennae,I've coloured her several times, in different colours, perhaps it's time I used one for a card, but I just love colouring her.
