Just Because

Hello.

This is going to be a short posting. I have another shaped card to show you.




This Magnolia gal is called Running Tilda and she is from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. I've only used her on a card once before, I think, and I don't why because she's just adorable. Hmm...probably because there are sooo... many adorable Tildas...LOL.

Anyway, Magnolia-licious on-line store is the place to get anything and everything Magnolia. And that dear lady, Diana, provides the best service. Most of the Magnolia images are available both in the full-size and the mini versions. Check them out HERE.


I've made this an easel card--my favorite type.





Challenges that I am entering with this card:
ABC Challenges - Oct. 1 Challenge - A for Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes theme, with the option of adding something punched.
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #89 - Lots of layers.
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare Card - CCDC #133 - Special Folds
Allsorts - Week 123 - 5 flowers


Ummm.... What else to say here?
I did my colouring with my markers this time. I'm switching back and forth between colouring with my markers and colouring with my coloured pencils. I love both mediums. And sometimes I combined the two.


That's it for me for now. Thanks so very much for stopping by. Always glad to see you and appreciate you sweet comments--love reading them.

Have a wonderful day. Weekend coming up, woo-hoooo... Double woo-hoo for us Canucks as it's a long weekend for us. It's our Thanksgiving on Monday.

DP's: Recollections Batiked My Interest Mango, K&Company Teal Floral

Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eleven

Punches: Punch Bunch Daisy medium and small, EK Success Leaf, McGill Baby Blooms, Punch Punch Ash Leaf small.

Hello Norma, How precious! I love your shape cards, you come up with the most original designs, and you should inspire me... I will confess I am "scared" with shapes! your coloring of Tilda is fantastic,she looks alive. Your background is divine, ove all the clouds, and the little patches of grass. Your paper is soooooo beautiful, rich earthtones and lovely vintage look.
Have a lovely day, a restful weekend.
¸Hugs.

I love when you make shape cards, Norma. And this Tilda really is cute for so many occasions and beautifully colored. Again, love the sky background and your card is always beautifully decorated on the inside as well. Oh yeah, I love all the Tildas you added to your blog like Places to Shop, etc. So creative and it really keeps these images right up front! Clever idea!!!
