Happy Tuesday everyone! It is a SNOWY & COLD Tuesday here in Virginia. We are being hit with another cold blast this week and supposedly 8 inches of snow...can you tell I'm so thrilled. I told Winter I was breaking up with him but he didn't get the message ;) So it took a whole week for me to get over the flu...I am not wishing it on anyone that's for sure, so hope everyone is doing well. And my pipe mess is cleaned up but we still have to drywall the walls and paint and redo the carpet so that will take a few weekends to get it all done. No fun that's for sure...doing that work delays all the OTHER work I gotta do LOL..oy vey!

This card was made for the current Magnolia-licious Tuesday Challenge "Celebrations"...make a project for any celebration! So mine is for two things: 1) Birthdays and 2) Celebration of the Sun LOL...because I need sun and warmth in my life and Spring is still a bit away sadly.
This super cutie is from the Little Moscow Collection and she's "Matryoshka Tilda"...I just love her adorable self so much! I used new papers from Authentique "Beyoutiful"..I loved the fun patterns and cheery colors...so pretty! I used a lot of dies on this card..love me my dies..a mix of older Spellbinders and Memory Box dies. I distressed all the papers with my Zutter Distress machine and inked them in yellow ink. The sentiment is from PTI and the flowers from Lavish Laces Etsy shop. A few pearl swirls from Prima finish off the corners...I just snipped the pieces off that fit the best.
I colored this cutie "Matryoshka Tilda" with a mix of Copics & TouchTwin markers.
Then added some sparkle with Stickles...I also stamped around the edges with a small scrolly stamp from PTI in yellow ink.
That's all from me today...but stop by tomorrow because I have another
project up my sleeve :) Stay warm & Keep Crafty!
