Happy Mother’s Day!

April 28, 2010


Okay, I confess, I have ANOTHER new favorite Tilda!   This little cutie is from the Raising the Ceiling Collection ~ named Sweet Tilda!   Such a perfect name!    I thought she would work soooo well for a Mother’s Day card since she looks so “sweet” and innocent!   🙂    (As ALL kids do for Mother’s Day!) 



I was sooo excited to order some of the new DP from the Vintage Posey collection by Melissa Frances …   OMGoodness!  I love each and every piece!   (There are several PURPLE sheets in this latest collection and ~ being a purple-aholic, I was in heaven!)    This beautiful blue paper is called Trixie.  

I am always in awe of the other Magnolia DT members who have the perfect knack for adding gorgeous flower groupings to their cards.  For some reason, I can never seem get them to match up just right…. Well!   I was  ecstatic to find this flower “bunch” from prima!   The flower bouquet comes already put together – all set to add to your card!!   N0 need to sort through your collection to find the perfect matching flowers!   🙂   The bouquet is called Dawn Tres Jolie Mini Vines by Prima . . .   it even has glitter added!   (Yes, I do get way too excited about these things!)   😀



Thanks for stopping by today!   I appreciate it and YOU!

    I must agree with the other posters before me. This is a delightful card for any occassion. It is so clean and fresh looking. I also agree with you about getting those flowers placed so they look right. Thanks for showing us something new that we can use to solve that problem. Linda S. in NE

    I love your technique for colouring with Copics. Did you take

    those of us that are just beginners! LOL!!!!

    I love coloring this stamp. I have done it several times, but mine still don’t look like YOURS! I love to cool blue tone and yes those flowers are just the perfect touch. Don’t give me that bologna, you make each stamp pop with your talented style! You are at the top of the game and YOU do inspire me to be better!

    Well, I mentioned it earlier in the comments about arrangements of flowers. I myself am challenged, and went out and purchased the great Prisma Collection flower bunches. Just made a card using them.

    Thanks for sharing,
