Winter Tilda...

Oh boy, my friend and I did a road trip yesterday to West Palm Beach  to hit up one of my favorite places to go,  Everything Scrapbook and Stamps and  then to Ft. Lauderdale to visit Stamp Shak. We had such a great time. First, the ladies in  Everything scrapbook and stamps are awesome. Lisa and Rosemary were working and we really had a nice time chatting with them.  They had a wall full of Magnolias too!!  Decisions, decisions.....I held out, I only picked up 3 maggies from there.  However, I did make a rather large Just-Rite stamps dent! ouch!  Oh and paper...paper...paper! They carry the graphic 45 papers....luv em!  We actually left that store, went to the Stamp Shak (where I picked up 2 more maggies) nd then went BACK to Everything Scrapbook and Stamps....were I did more Just-Rite damage! We had a great time yesterday. We chatted the day away about stamping and our precious maggies! 

I have no earthly idea of what this Tilda is called, but for some reason I have always thought she was cute. I also liked the idea that I could use some of my flower soft! ;-) 




You can see the Flower Soft on the tree in this one quite well. I like the effect and how it turned out!

I colored _____? Tilda (call me lazy but I haven't went and sought out her name yet)  with Copic markers. The background is prisma color pencils. Flowers are from Wild Flower orchids. Paper is from my stash. The Sentiment is a Just Rite border and the center is from Close to my Heart. Worked perfectly together!

Challenges/sketches:


Thanks For Looking!

Beautiful Tracy! I love it! I can't believe you can walk into a store and buy Magnolias!!!! We would never have that here in Houston, stamps stores are pretty much nonexistent except Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
Anyhow, your card is perfecto!!!!
Hugs, Dena
