Springy Tilda, Happy Anniversary and a Get Together!!


I needed to make something springy last night while the blizzard raged on around me!! I worked all day at the library yesterday and they REALLY should have closed it. We got hit by a MAJOR snowstorm and we got at least a foot of snow!! You should see it! It was very scary driving home and I was slip sliding all over the roads!

Anyway, when I got home I had to make something to remind me that spring IS on it's way! At least that's what they tell me!! I also made this card for Aud's challenge on her blog!! She wanted you to use something that is 'your favourite'! Well, you know that these Magnolia Tildas are my favourite, along with my Copic markers!! So here is my card for her challenge!!!

The base is a 5 and a half inch square of Certainly Celery and the patterned paper is from the DCWV Baby Girl Stack and is so beautiful and sparkly in real life! I stamped this new Tilda that I got from The Town Scrapper on Wausau bright white cardstock in Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured her in using coordinating Copic markers. I also stamped, coloured and cut out the Sun stamp to add. The ribbon is from the $ spot at Michael's and I just love the colour and design on it. I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey on So Saffron cs, attached it like a little tag and also added some Primas with glitter brads. I pop dotted the main image and added Stardust Stickles on her wings as the finishing touch!! I hope she brings a little sunshine into your day!!

I am off to a friend's house today to teach a class. We are making five projects and there will be about ten ladies there, so it should be a fun afternoon. Al is shoveling out the driveway as I type and there is a LOT of it!!

Today is my Mom and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary!!! Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!! We LOVE you!! I wish we could spend the day together but the weather is so unpredictable this time of year and we live an hour and a half apart. It's a good thing we didn't make plans because we would have had to cancel them anyway! So we'll wait until later in the spring and get together for a nice dinner then.

Also I wanted to let all the local ladies know that we are planning another get together in Petrolia to have a nice lunch at Actors and do a little shopping at The Town Scrapper. If you are available on Thursday, March 20th and would like to join us, please email me and I'll add you to the list. We'll probably make the lunch reservation for noon, have some great food and a nice chat and then head over to the store to pick up some new stamps and supplies!!! Be sure to let me know if you want to come so that I have a tally for the restaurant reservation. I'd love to see you there!!

Hey don't forget that you have until midnight tonight to get your entries in to win an adorable angel stamp! See the below post for details!! I will announce the winner tomorrow and I might have something else for you!! Heehee!

Hi Kim,
You can count on both my mom (lucky clucker) and I coming for lunch Thursday (the 20th). Can you request a high chair- the little guy has to tag along but he loves to stamp so he'll be good! :)
