Love and kindness...


Howdy, howdy! I've been hard at work again making this card with Easter colors (to me anyway) and using some of my wonderful Magnolia DP, which I tend to hoard. I finally broke down and cut some up to use for the sketch this week on Friday Sketcher's Challenge. I really loved the examples used and hope you'll find this sketch gets your creative juices flowing!

Here is a picture of the sketch and their fabulous prize is from Whiff of Joy...




For my card this week I chose to use #3030 Tilda with Big Ribbon. She is adorable and a dream to color. You can find her here at Magnolia-licious and she is from the You're So Special collection. I actually colored her with the intentions of using an altogether different paper, but the purples didn't match the way I would have liked, so I used just the yellow with Elegant Eggplant CS from SU to complement it.

Here is my card...



A closer view of Tilda...




The top portion of the inside of my card...



Finally, here is the whole inside of my card...



Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Don't forget about Daylight savings beginning on Sunday in the wee small hours of the morning. It will be great to have longer days for playing outside with the kids, but, UGH, they'll be up earlier in the mornings too until we get the schedule realigned!

Hugs,
Barb
