Hi friends! We had an early visit from summer this weekend for two days with temperatures in the 80s. Today, however, is a raw, rainy and windy day with temperatures in the 40s! Our seasons are way off anymore!
Recently, I was one of the lucky winners in the Magnolia Sunbeam bloghop. My prize was a new Tilda stamp and a sweet umbrella die. I was absolutely thrilled and couldn't wait to use them. I have a couple of the Tilda stamps and dies but they are a bit difficult to find here in the States, so I was most happy to add these to my collection. I decided to make a Mother's Day card with my prizes.
The card shape was made with a Sizzix die. The papers are from Bo Bunny. I placed a Prima doily as well as a Wilton doily between the layers. The image was colored with Copics. I stamped a postal mark around Tilda and accented with Frantage. You can see the sweet umbrella next to Tilda. The large flower, branch and butterflies are from Magnolia. The other flowers are from my stash and accented with Stickles. The sentiment was stamped on a Papertrey Ink tiny tag.
The pink seam binding bow is attached to a removable tag also from Magnolia. I managed to incorporate all my Magnolia dies onto this one card!
Believe it or not, it took me several days to make this card! Of course, I only worked on it for an hour or two each time. I plan to give this card to my mother for Mother's Day.
I want to thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog and for your kind comments. I am noticing that comments to my blog are decreasing. I realize that it is time consuming to leave a message on blogs. I wonder if my posts are just not interesting. Well, we'll see what happens in the near future. Have a wonderful week ahead!
