Soft and pretty Tilda...

Morning everyone! I got up much later than I had anticipated...silly alarm didn't go off. Hate that! Anyway...I'm now and probably all day feeling behind. Anyway...I have a card for you...woot! On to it!

One brand of stamps that I absolutely love is Magnolia. Now...I don't use them a lot because I just don't color the images that well. I see so many cards that are just beautifully colored with sweet Tilda and adorable Edwin and I'm always disappointed with mine. This time I took the tutorial on how to color her face (from HERE), printed it out, and put it in my special page protector area...this way I can use it each time I color Tilda. This card is for the KL Stampin' and Scrappin June challenge on Papercraft Planet. Oh, did I mention I won last months challenge? Yep, I did but with a non Magnolia stamp...so glad she lets us do that if we don't have Magnolias that will work!

Anyway, this Tilda is called Flower Skipping Rope and is just completely adorable! The challenge is this sketch so why don't you join the KLSNS Papercraft Planet group and try the sketch? You could win a "surprise" stamp and a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey Lime Rickey!

And I'd like to share this weekend's Psalm of the day...
Lead me in a plain path. Psalm 27:11
Some days I'd just like life to be simple. (Isn't that the truth! And, just so you know...the little comments are not my words they are on the calendar too. )

Okay, so I have to get moving (literally because I need to go exercise). I hope you have a fantastic day! See you soon!

I think you did a great job on this Tilda. At least you have one...I don't own any of those cute Magnolia stamps. BTW...do a little exercise for me while you are at it...I'm getting flabby in my old age! ;)
