Tilda Note Cards

I made a little set of watercolor notecards last week as a gift, but still had some cut and folded note cards sitting on my "studio" table. So while I was going through the images Claudia sent me and ooooing and awwwwwwing over them all and trying to decide which to work on first, I thought about making some note cards from them. I still had some designer paper left over from that same project so, waste not want not!!!

Here is the result of my spending most of my day with Tilda.

I decided to put a small square of white cardstock inside just so whoever gets these little cuties can actually write something in them and then I decided to fancy them up a little by adding lines and dots. Then I got really carried away and decided the do the same of the envelopes so that it all ties together. The little heart on a ribbon is my "signature" piece. I put this on every card somewhere, and usually sign my name.

The artists in the MAGNOLIA-licious yahoo group are just wonderful, I know I will grow more as I get better with the copics (I have ordered E000 and E0000 so my faces won't look so orange any more. Had a few problems with color running - especially the red and could not get it to clean up to my satistaction.

So if you have found me and wish to leave a comment, please feel free. It encourages me to do better each time.

Happy Memorial Day Tomorrow, Keep safe everyone...
