Thinking of You

Oh my goodness... one last card before I retire for the evening (Sandra, don't faint...LOL)...  Gosh, once you're on a roll, you just need to flow with the tide.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I bought some new cardstock from The Scrapbook shop in my area and I just had to use them this evening.... Well, I actually started late afternoon and it's just gone 9.45pm!  Time goes so quickly when you're having fun, especially when you're also skyping with 2 lovely blogfriends.  Nice chatting with you again Sandra and Paola.

OK... I found a new Magnolia blog in blogland called Midweek Magnolias and it gives me the perfect opportunity of showing off my little Maggies.  Thought I'd take part in their challenge, which is a sketch.  Here it is...

And here is my little creation which I will be entering into their challenge.  Hope you like it!

The gorgeous image is Tilda with Wrapped Heart and there are so many online shops where she can be purchased from.  She's been coloured with Copics.  The plain cardstock was purchased from The Scrapbook.  The floral paper is from Prima.  The gingham paper and pearls are from Paola. 

Here is a side view so that you can get a peek of the inside, which I have also decorated.

[Edit] This card was made especially for Leah at the request of a dear blogfriend Jerusha Borden, whom I had the pleasure of meeting when she invited me to join the Teddy Stampers challenge blog as a DT member.  That was a few years ago and alot of the old DT members still keep in touch.

Thanks so much for popping by.  Your visits and comments make my day!

You certainly are on a roll my friend!! This one has to be one of my faves in the last few months. Your colouring is just fantastic, that image too cute for words, and I love that leaf with the flowers on top. How did you cut that leaf, its lovely?! Sorry I haven't contacted you, I have been battling terribly with a sore back and was in bed at like 8:00am last night. I am going to phone the doctor first thing on Monday! Enjoy your Sunday, nice to know we have a mid week break next week hey!

Gorgeous! I think your card is just so beautiful! I love your copic colouring, and I think you did an amazing job with the sketch. I love the lace banner, and is that a Rhonna Farrer swirl I spy on the inside?? I am so glad you found us at Midweek Magnolias and I hope we see you again for a new theme on Wednesday!
