Tea anyone?

The "A Little Yummy for your Tummy" Collection from Magnolia is so, well, Yummy! I have been wanting to use this sweet Tilda, called "Jam Tilda" for awhile, but time to do it all just isn't there for me.

It took me three days of working here and there. I've been trying to get to bed earlier because I'm a little worn out, leaving me very few hours in which to craft. I have been waiting for an order of flowers and pins to arrive from the UK, but in the meantime I'm making do with what I can find here.

So here is the card I've been working on...



I made this Tilda panel using the "out of the frame" technique. You can see the tutorial here.

Here is a closer view of my Tilda...



Here is how I finished the inside of the card.



This is a short post, as I've been on the Web Cam with the girls mom this morning so she could see the babies. I even dressed one of them in her Halloween Costume which the mom had ordered and sent to them. I will have pictures of that sometime soon. Now the babies are intolerant of my computer time so I will just post...

Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to...

  7. Barb, Thanks for the link to the "Out of the Box" tutorial. It was great. This Tilda is a little darling with her long braids. I will need to check out "Yummy for your tummy". Your eye for color and execution of the Copics are an inspiration to be sure. God Bless!
