Happy TGIFriday---yay, the weekend is here!! I am soooo ready for a peaceful weekend and no running around and no more Christmas decorations staring at me begging to be put away. They've been packed away for next year, thank goodness--big thanx to hubby for helping out! We're supposed to be getting a "wintry mix" here today but I don't believe the local weathermen anymore--they're always wrong lately, lol! Alrighty, onto my card for ya...
This lil' cutie is from Magnolia's new Valentine Collection that you can order at Magnolia-licious--her name is "Tilda w/ Tag" and she's perfect for ANY occasion!! I like to use non-traditional colors on holiday cards to mix it up sometimes---don't get me wrong, I love the reds & pinks too! The yummy dp in the large heart is from Laura Ashley that you can see here. The cs is all Coredinations and if you haven't checked out their yummy colors, you really should--lots of great colors that SU & PTI don't offer. Even better is that you make the "core color" come out--in this case I embossed my dark cs w/ my new CB hearts folder and then sanded lightly on top to bring out the white underneath--fun!
And yes, I realized after loading my pictures that a small pearl fell off the bottom corner--oopsies! (just ignore it pleez, lol) In the corners I again used one of my many Fiskars border punches to create the corner brackets---I love to have corner brackets and its easy-peasy to make your own!
Just a close-up to show you that I double stamped the tag & cut it out & popped it up so it would be 3-D! I also added a few (ok, alot) of stardust stickles to her dress & bow for lotsa sparkles. The sentiment that I fit onto the tag is from PTI's "Limitless Labels" which has lots of cute & small words that fit!
Don't forget to stop by our "Fans of Karen Lockhart" site on PaperCraft Planet to enter for our yummy webcandy-you have until tomorrow to do so. You can see/buy the entire new Lockhart Collection here & remember that Susana is offering a punch card system for Lockharts. If you buy 4 regular sized Lockharts you get an IB of your choice FREE, you do not have to buy them all at once either (punchcards are good forevah', lol)!!
PS--Check out Lim's great blog candy here---she's giving away a new Hanglar stamp & 100 Hanglar images which I've been dying to get my hands on. Whatcha' waiting for-go enter!!
See ya tomorrow,
