Friendlier with Two




Hello. Hope your weekend is going well. Nice day here today, sun shining and no rain!


Today's card is my design team contribution to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The Challenge was a sketch by Shell Barnard. I bought the "kids" on bikes this past summer and never got to stamp them up yet. And when I went to make this tri-fold card I wanted to do some light colors after all those Halloween and fall cards I had been making. The cloud paper is also by Magnolia, and these papers are so nice, they have a lovely cottony feel to them. I colored and cut out Tilda and Edwin out for a ride on their bikes. Then I stamped the flower bush in the corner piece of white cardstock. I added the little birds. I then sponged ground and sky color in.

I popped Tilda up where I wanted her in the scene. The corner punch is Martha Stewart. The sentiment is My Sentiment Exactly.


The prize this week for the winner is a $ 10 gift voucher for Kellie's own Magnolia only, online store. There are links to the challenge site and Kellies store on the right, here on my blog.


Take a look at what my "mates" have come up with for this sketch, every card is so different and so beautiful, you'll be inspired! Then get to creating and enter your card on the challenge blog, you could win that shopping voucher.


Thanks for stopping by. Until later..........

Sue, I love it -- so glad you are on the DT! This is just the sweetest. You make these images so enticing that I've finally succumbed and sent away for my first Tilda and Edwin -- like I don't have other stamps that need inking.
