Hi, hope your Tuesday went well.  Our kids (all of them, two teachers and two grandchildren) went off to their first day of school.  I called and talked to everyone, and apparently only the middle school for the first time Granddaughter had some locker opening problems and was late getting to a class because she got lost, was unhappy about the days events.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for her.  My grandson was excited to go back and likes his teacher, so he was happy.

Today's card is a Magnolia, Tilda. I made the card for the challenge at Magnolia Down Under(#62).  The challenge this week is Fur, Feathers or Fins.  I chose this adorable Tilda with Lamb, and I used flocking to make the little lamb more furry looking.  I colored with Copics.  The oval die cuts are Nellie Smellen.  Paper is Martha Stewart as well as the border punch.  Roses are from Michael's Reflection Collection.  The fence is also Magnolia (thanks Steph!).  The oval behind the fence, I brayered the grass and sky on glossy card stock.  Ribbon is also from Michael's.  Star Dust Stickles used on flowers and around the red panel.

I'm also entering this at Stamp Something, their challenge this week is stamp something "cute".
Also, A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge,(#120) Animal Crackers, use an animal.

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

Adorable card! Tilda is sooooo sweet!
This is the first time in 17 yrs that I didn't have anyone going to school. Kind of sad. :^( My daughter will be going to college in January though, so that will be a happy time.
