A cute little Tilda for a very warm Saturday...

Good morning, my crafty friends!

This is going to be a pretty quick post I think. I have a ton of things to do today and if I don't get an early start, I may not start at all! Our unseasonably hot weather is supposed to continue through at least the coming week (UGH!) so any outdoor activity is best done during the morning hours. To be honest, I'm really not in the mood to get out this early.

Anyway, this little cutie will hopefully warm your heart without making you break a sweat! Here is one of the adorable Tildas that my friend Tracy, of Tracy's Stamping Corner, stamped and sent to me a while back. I still have close to a dozen that I have not put onto cards yet. I guess I need to get busy again as I'm getting close to the end of the stack I made during my last crafting frenzy. I have an anniversary gift to make for some dear friends as well as that wedding album I keep mentioning. I finally got the photographs so I can actually start working on it. I have to have the anniversary gift finished in two weeks and I'm not sure yet how I want to do it.

Now, back to Tilda. I thought this was a particularly cute one and I used soft shade of lime green and medium pink as my palette because I wanted to use flowers!! Yes, I have finally made another card with the flowers piled on! I have missed them so. Here she is with her little gift package and party hat with streamers falling down around her. This image could be used for several different occasions, the most obvious of which is birthdays.

I hand wrote the greeting "Just 4 You" myself on pastel pink cardstock with a black .025 Copic Multiliner.  The medium pink card base is DCWV, mats are Recollections solid color cardstock in lime green and dp is from one of my favorite My Mind's Eye stacks, called Home Glitter Book. This little 6" x 6" stack has 54 sheets of the most amazing patterns I have seen in a single collection in quite a while and they are all glittered!  I have used these papers on several of my cards before. I used my Copics to color little Tilda. The little flowers are from Michael's.  The pearls are Recollections. I made the mats on the inside with one of Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page sets and the circles were cut using Cutter Bee's Circle Scissor.  The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkadoo.

I am entering this card in the following challenge:

Magnolia-licious June color challenge   

That's all for now, folks.  I hope your weekend is glorious and that you find something fun to do with your friends and families.  Until next time...

Happy crafting!
