Tilda and Teddy!!


There are so many blogs that I read and get inspiration from, but one of my favourites is My Time by Lauren Meader. She is a constant source of information and tips, as well as amazingly creative designs. I'm also fortunate to say that we are on the My Favorite Things Design Team together!!

Anyway, I was checking her stuff out over the weekend (I have NO idea how she accomplishes so much in a single day.....she must not sleep at all!!) and I discovered this sketch that she posted. I'm always looking for inspiration in the form of sketches, so I made this card using Tilda and Teddy by Magnolia the other night!! Of course, I purchased mine from the lovely Phebe at The Town Scrapper!! This was the first time she had seen ink and I had new dp to play with too!!

So I stamped her on this new paper that I found!! For all you Canadians, you can find it at Walmart in the office supplies section and it is called Wausaw Bright White cardstock. You get 100 sheets for about $6 and I tried it for the first time on the weekend and I LOVE IT!!! It is about half the weight of Papertrey's Stampers Select cardstock but I have found that I get NO lines with my Copic markers on it. With PT I do still get lines and I find that I have to go over the area twice with my marker to cover that up...but with this stuff, I don't!! I'm really liking it!!

Anyway, I coloured her in using my Copic markers and using my new Ginger Blossoms dp by SU as a guide for colours. I added some 'blush' to her cheeks with a q-tip and my Pretty in Pink craft ink and doodled around her frame. I added some Prima flowers with SU brads and some Michael's ribbon which just happens to match Groovy Guava! Then I stamped the sentiment by CC Designs and paper pierced a line at the bottom! Ain't she a doll?????

Well, I've got some great things planned for my Birthday/Blogaversary next week and I'm also hoping that I might hit 100,000 visitors in that time, so it should be a HUGE par-tay, wouldn't you think??? I'll tell you my plans.........tomorrow!!!
