Be happy every day

Hello! And a happy Monday to all.

I have my latest card here to show you--stating the obvious...LOL. This is a short post.





For the layout, I've used Moni's wonderful sketch that she has created for Stempeleinmaleins' Challenge No. 17.

I am also entering the following challenges with this card:

Passion for Promarkers - Week 101 (Congrats, ladies and Happy 2nd Anniversary!) - All the 2's. I have 2 images, 2 designer papers and 2 ribbons.

Papertake Weekly - Pale, Pretty Pastels

Stamp With Fun - Challenge 113 - In the Garden




This adorable image is of Happy Spring Tilda. She is from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. For the background, I have used an Alota image. I purchased both stamps from Magnolia-licious (although Diana doesn't carry this particular Alota stamp anymore).

That's it for now!

Thanks for dropping by. Appreciate your visit and all your wonderful comments very much. Have a wonderful and productive week!

hi Norma!
Whata little cutie this Tilda is. the first time I have seen her. I love the design of your card and your coloring is wonderful.
Thanks for giving the Promarkers that you used. I have just purchased some skin tone ones and have another order in for some more. I'm looking forward to learning how to use them.
Hopefully I will get as good as you.
