Terrific Tuesday.....


Nearly first day of Spring! So happy that the daylight is longer now:)
I hope you are all well and having a good start to your week!

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using  'Lovely Pop Tilda' from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection.
I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads.
The stickles I have added are Star Dust and also Clear Star Dust Sakura pen.
All of the Die Cuts are Magnolia Doohickeys.

Here you can see that I have made an easel card. So rubbish at photographing easel cards sorry.

I have masked Tilda onto a Magnolia background and they have been stamped out with Archival Coffee.

Before I go. As promised here are a couple of photo's of my new baby girl Lily. I am so very lucky to have her she is so very sweet and such a purr baby :)

Thank you so much for your visit with me.
I wish you a great rest of the week!

Today I would like to share with you a party invitation I made using Magnolia's soon to be released 'Little Princess Tilda' from the Princes and Princess 2012 collection!
I am so in love with this collection Pauline has done one fantastic job as usual!

I have stamped Tilda with Archival coffee and coloured her with distress inks.

I have added some stickles star dust and for the crown clear star dust sakura pen.

I have used Magnolia's Doohickeys swirl die and the large roses and flower berries plus silver tinsel are from Magnolia.
