Tilda with her kitty

Good Afternoon,

We had a strange first day of Spring yesterday with 6 inches of snow! Today, the snow is melting but it still feels like Winter! Just a perfect weekend to stay inside and stamp:-)

My card today is using a "new to me" Magnolia stamp. The name of the stamp is "Tilda with cat hanging in her arms" - That's a mouthful!! I'm wishing for some Spring Time weather so I've pulled out the Pastels this weekend. This card uses some Tea Party designer paper from my Stampin' Up stash as well as some Bashful Blue and White card stock.

The ribbon is some gorgeous 1 1/4" Pink Grosgrain SU! ribbon that I used for the first time. I have a bad habit of hoarding the "good stuff" and setting it aside for just the right project. Because of this, I end up with a lot of unopened packages just waiting to be used! But I'm changing my bad habits!!

I've actually opened the package and used the Light Pink Chandelier Glass Garland that arrived in my mailbox on Friday! I ordered a strand of this garland along with some Magnolia stamps over at the Magnolia-licious store. The glass beads were so beautiful that I simply couldn't put them in a drawer. I've tried to get a close up of the beads in the picture below!

Here is a list of the Copic colors:
RV0000, RV000, RV10, B0000, B21, E000, E00, E31, E33, E35, and E50.
I've used a little pink chalk for the blush on the cheeks of both Tilda and her cat.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I had to smile at your hoarding tendencies because I do the exact same thing! I will keep things forever, to the point that I forget I have them. Then again, perhaps mine relates to my shopping addiction more than not wanting to use the stuff! LOL. Gina L

Beautiful card. I love how you've colored Tilda, it's so soft. The beads are so much fun. I had a bit of a giggle about you not wanting to use the "good stuff", I can so relate to that. Thanks for sharing this lovely card!
