Merci, Tilda!!!



I'm having a lot of fun playing with the new Tildas that I got from The Town Scrapper last week!! In fact, I'm colouring so much skintone with my Copic markers, that I've had to order reinkers already!! Yikes!

Today's card features Paris Tilda....isn't she cute?? And this is my attempt at a 'scene' card. I stamped the grass stamped twice, side by side and added a few clouds and a couple of dragonflies. I stamped Tilda on a separate piece of cardstock, then coloured everything in and cut Tilda out. I trimmed down the scenery piece and layered it on Soft Sky. The card base is a Pretty in Pink 6x6 square card layered with Soft Sky and I used a piece of Just Dreamy patterned paper by My Mind's Eye that I also got from The Town Scrapper (Do you think it just might be my favourite local stamp and scrap shop??). The scalloped piece at the top is a diecut strip that came in the collection package along with the scalloped circle piece at the bottom and I just stamped 'merci' on it from one of the SU Sell-a-bration sets. I added two glitter brads at the top, some yummy matching satin ribbon that I picked up at Target and pop dotted everything! Then I added Stardust Stickles to the clouds and the dragonflies' wings. Simple layout, but I don't think it needs anything more!



Well, today is technically supposed to be my day off but I am going in this afternoon to help with a special Open House. A lady that works with us is retiring today after 33 years and we are putting on a tea for her at the library. We'll have lots of setting up and cleaning up to do, but it will hopefully be a nice afternoon for her to say goodbye to all of her friends, coworkers, and patrons. I think I can take a few hours out of stampin' for that!! *wink*

Happy Stampin'!!
