Sweet Tilda Birthday Style

Happy Saturday Stampers,


I just wanted to thank you all for your congrats and sweet comments re my excitement of becoming a Magnolia DT. I received serveral hundred emails and have been trying to stop by your blogs to thank you.  

Wow, it has been almost a week since posting a project, I have had my sick Mum staying with me, anyways yes another Easel Card. I wanted it to be bright & springy, with so many of my blogging friends living in colder parts of the world, I know they are so looking forward to Spring. Here in Australia it has been so hot I am looking forward to Winter, anyways, this fits the following challenges 
Magnolia-licious March Home Page Challenge - Bright
Everybody Art Challenge - Easel Cards 
Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon-Tastic 
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Distress Inks or Pearls & Glitter
This is Sweet Tilda from Magnolia's - Raising the Ceiling and  Right Through my Heart Collection, Sweet Tilda a perfect name for her don't you think. Happy Birthday text by Hero Arts and sentiment is from Stamp It. I've coloured her with Copics, airbrushed the background with some buttery yellow to given her a little glow and added some stickles here and there to give her a little sparkle. The gorgeous papers are by Kaisercraft and of course my much loved flowers & silk bows are a must.

Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 35 - Easter - it is not my turn this week, but you must see what the Design Team have come up with. their creations are amazing. Simon Says is the sponsor this week, woohoo, you can win a $25 shopping voucher. Big news Magnolia Down Under Challenges has moved to Blogger here is the new link, please remember to add the new address to your favourites. You don't need Easter Stamps to enter, but please remember you must use a Magnolia Stamp even if it is only a sentiment stamp

If you are thinking of buying some Magnolia Stamps, don't put it off too long... Kellie at Magnolia Down Under Store has reopened and is having a sale, this includes the adorable new Hoppy Easter Collection, stop by and see all the goodies she now stocks including some delish flowers, but hurry the sale ends soon.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have time to fit in some stamping over the weekend and again thanks for all your wonderful comments and emails. Have a great weekend. Big hugs Jodie from Oz
