Woo-hoo...I am a Guest DT at Top Tip Tuesday for a couple of their challenges. I am so jazzed about joining the ladies at Top Tip Tuesday because I think I am their very first Guest DT. I feel sooo... honored. I'd like to thank Leanne for giving me this opportunity.
For this week, the theme for their Challenge 37 is: More Than One Fold. I've made a front-panel side step card. I think this is my next favorite type of card, after the easel card.
I would like to use this card as my entry into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Challenge 12 - Lace
Magnolia Stamp Lover Challenge - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Challenge 72 - Let's get sentimental
Crafts and Me - Challenge 37 - Punch it out!
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 167 - Embellish it!

Just Magnolia hAnglar & sTanglar - Week 110 - Anything Goes with the option of adding Lace
Sundays With Chrissy - June challenge - Here comes the sun.
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 155 - Here comes Summer
This adorable Magnolia image that I have used for this card is of Running Tilda and she is from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.
I am still in my coloured pencil mode, so I have coloured this with my mixture of Prismacolour, Faber-Castell and Derwent pencils. Up to now, I have been experimenting using odourless solvent(or some people use mineral spirit or gamsol) with my coloured pencils, but this time I wanted to try the colourless blender pencil. I think I find this more to my liking. I will have to practice more to be sure...LOL.
If you're familiar with my work, you know that I luvvv... to decorate the inside of my cards (hee hee...when I have the time, that is). I've added another sentiment and another set of images here.
Both the sentiments on the front and in the inside of my card are computer generated. I've used a mini Magnolia stamp here called Mini Sitting Angel Tilda, also available from Magnolia-licious.
She's just so adorable that she's my favorite from the Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010, or rather the full-size version is...LOL.
That's it for me. Thanks so much for dropping by. I appreciate your visit. Have a wonderful week.
