A Magnolia card finally........

Good Morning!
WOW I finally got to color up one of my Tilda's!!
It has been forever since I got to play with one of
these cuties!! I just couldn't resist this one any longer!

I have played along with the sketch over at the

Another image that reminds me of my oldest!
She always wants to wear the cotton outfits
with the matching shirts and pants!
(But I NEVER let her!! haha)
I was thinking of giving this to her for
her birthday this month but she really isn't
into girly and frilly and my hubby says I
have to stop pushing her into it!! LOL

Well in my defense ~ I grew up with 7 brothers
so when I had three girls I thought it was time
for a bit of girlyness in my house finally!!!

I have used some more Webster's Pages papers (LOVE these),
my image was colored in with distress inks and twinkling h20's,
Flowers are from Prima's shabby collection and I have
also went over the edges with Picket Fence crackle distress paint.

Well that is it! I am off to help the girls sell some
Girl Scout cookies! They are excited as they
already have earned a week-end of camping!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you
all have a lovely week-end!
