New Tilda comes out to play

Wow can someone tell me where the days are going? One minute it is Monday and then with a blink of the eye the weekend is quickly approaching. I hope all my fellow Aussies had a fantastic Australia Day yesterday.

On Tuesday I went to Maxine's (Picture 2 Page in Lilydale) and she was super excited as she had just received her shipment of the new Magnolia's. Now of course me being me could not resist and had to buy one (only one how good am I!) and it was Magnolia holding Hearts. I am not sure what it is about this stamp that appealed to me so much but it was jumping straight out at me.

Anyhow today when I got home from shopping we still had no power (maintenance) so I decided to ink up my new Tilda believing that I would leave it at that. To my surprise my power came back on just after I had finished colouring her in so I thought why not make a card (the kids were outside playing nicely and for once it was peaceful!). After much procrastination this is what I came up with:

It is using the sketch from CLP Challenges this month combined with a few other challenges:

Copic Oz - LOVE
Magnolia Down Under - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (well the ribbon I actually pulled off a really old card as I knew it would match my papers perfectly! I also resisted the urge to cut up a fresh piece of paper and reused some Bo Bunny Paper I have had lying around for a while)
Stamp Something - Cute Somethings
Pile it on Challenges - Love is in the Air
Creatalicious Challenges - Ribbon with some LOVE!

I decided not to put too much embellishments on my card as I really liked the layout and did not want to hide it behind lots of flowers etc.

Well I better be off and start getting the kids organised for the evening and getting myself ready for work tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
