Happy Today - FFFC #98


It's a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  This challenge is being hosted by the lovely Elin and her chosen theme is...'Punches and Dies'.  Allright!...this is one of favorite themes.  I'm an addict of dies and punches.  I think I've made the die-and-punch companies rich...hee hee. 
More details of the challenge and how to join in the fun can be found at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  And to inspire you even further to join the challenge, check out the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates.

I've created this shaped easel card as my DT card...

This adorable image I am featuring is
 - Sakura Tilda from Special Moments Collection 2013

The stamps for this adorable image and other Magnolia images--both full-size and mini stamps--are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
Magnolia-licious also carries those beautiful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and newly introduced to the store are the wonderful Wild Rose Studio stamps.

Hi Norma!
Gasp! WOW! Your easel card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the beautiful papers you chose to work with and all of those pretty dies!
Your flowers are so very pretty!
The big star though is Tilda! You have colored her so beautifully so that she pops right out of the card as she sits on the edge there!
I have been missing for a long while due to personal reasons and my own posts have been few and far between. It's good to be "back"!
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Sheryl
