Farewell to Alison


Just a short posting here to show you a card I made for my sister to give to a friend of hers, Alison, who was leaving town and moving back to the eastern part of the country.

I thought this sad but adorable Tilda image was just perfect for this goodbye card.  I've coloured her with my markers.  She was also cut out and then mounted on pieces of foam tape for a more 3D effect.

This image is called Farewell Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection 2010

The stamp for the full-size version is out of stock at Magnolia-licious, however the Mini Farewell Tilda is available HERE.

Other equally adorable Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey. and other crafting tools such as Flowers, Prima Chalk Edgers, etc.  Have a look!  The site is sporting a brand new look.

She is so sad waving goodbye with a tear in her eye but what a wonderful card. Love your design & beautiful shades of blue & always enjoy your sentiments. That font is great. I spend way too much time trying to find something like that but can't seem to find anything similar. Your work is always such perfection.
hugs, Janie
