A FLOWER FOR YOU


Wow, I'm posting late.  Went out for a while today to run errands.  Hope everyone had a great Wednesday.  It is stinkin hot and humid today.  Supposed to get rain tomorrow, so maybe that will cool things down a little.

Today's card is a darling Tilda by Magnolia.  I have used papers from the Mirabelle stack by The Paper Studio.  The wonderful little flowers were a gift from my blogging friend Stephanne.  The lace running down the middle is by K & Company.  The leaves are a die cut by Sizzix.  I used a cuddlebug folder to emboss the mat behind Tilda.  Stickled the flowers with star dust.

I think I forgot to tell you all, but I purchased a Hot Shot Express, the electric one!!  I am loving it!

I'm entering this card into the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC59) and

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

That paper is majestical, the vintage side of me is forcing me to do some googling to check it out!! Gorgeous card Sue, she looks maggie-nificent in yellow and your flower looks fabulous!! I am with you on this one, rain please. Soooo gross and hot and sticky and ugh!!! However, I have some gorgeousness blooming in my yard, hydrangeas galore!!

Hi Sue-Well, isn't this Tilda just darling. I love how you did the leaves die cut for that element of the sketch. It adds so much to setting the scene for your cards...and talk about setting the scene...look at those gorgeous flowers. This is so sweet and endearing. Beautiful work! Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,

Hi Sue, my granddaughter and I have enjoyed looking at all of your beautiful cards -- this is certainly no exception. You have a great talent for putting together colors, patterns, and textures. My DGD (Shayna) is just six so I think you'll find her comment amusing -- she says it is a beautiful card -- but you forgot to draw in the mouth on the little girl. Have a great day!
