Tilda Wants a Hug

Well, here's something that doesn't happen very often for me. In fact, I don't remember it ever happening so I had to take advantage. I made this card this weekend as a birthday card for one of my nieces, only to discover that it qualified (I hope) for several challenges. Now, I envy the ladies who find scads of challenges to enter. Me, I just don't have the patience to follow through on this project so today I'm taking advantage. I love this little gal 'cuz she just radiates love and good will and friendship. I cut the card from the Wild Card Cricut cart and the heart doily from the MS Elegant Cakes cart, corner embellishment by Sizzix, Prima flowers, paper-pieced pinafore and socks, and MS punched butterflies with rhinestone bling. I left the inside pretty simple so I could write a love note to a dear little girl when the time comes.That 2 inch doily is from Martha Stewart.  Have to say, this shade of turquoise is one of my favorites, which made this card a real pleasure to make.


Here are the three challenges I entered this week:
7KidsCollegeFund (Monochromatic) Pat, I hope I followed the instructions correctly this time :)
Simply Magnolia (Bows and Bling)

  2. Beautiful card Sue -- I am like you - I just create and really don't have the patience for challenges - If I happen to see one that I can enter then I do but I don't go looking and then fit my card to it. I just love being in my own world and doing my own thing! Your card is so sweet Sue and I too love the colors! I know, I know, I still owe you an e-mail. I stay forever behind!! Best of luck with your challenges!!!
