Cute as a Button!

August 22, 2009



Helllo!   I’m not sure what the name of this little Tilda is … I think she is an older image that I’ve had in my stash for awhile from an image swap on SCS.   I wanted to use a Tilda with buttons to go with the sentiment.  

The sketch for my card is from the amazingly talented Rach for the  Just Magnolia  challenge.   This really was a fun layout … into my favs!    🙂






As soon as I saw this button at the store, I knew I had to have it for a Magnolia card!   The saying is perfect for her!    🙂




Just a quickie today …  I received some “happy mail” from Sweden today and have LOTS to do!!    Hope you’ll check back in the next few weeks for some sneak peeks.  




Thank you for visiting, I appreciate it.

    She’s so cute!!! I love how you colored her! I think this Tilda is called “stylish Tilda” maybe from a fall collection…??? In any case, I love your cards!!! :o) Angela

    You made the right choice of using this image for the cute button. The way you put the little buttons on Tilda’s top is clever idea. You did this card wonderfully!

    Button, button, who’s got the button? Great use of buttons! I believe she is Stylish Tilda #283. I just love her little hat.
