TILDA WITH A SMALL GIFT

Well, happy Saturday/Sunday fellow Maggie Lovers!  I'm back from vacation and must say I worked hard and played hard, and enjoyed every moment.  I got to go shopping with my friend Suzan and boy did we shop LOL!  A whole suitcase just for craft supplies!  I even won my first "Royal Flush" on a quarter slot machine woohoo!  Okay, enough rambling! I have another Maggie card to share from the "Your Are So Special 2011 Collection" and she is "Tilda With a Small Gift" which I will use for Valentine's Day.

My card is my usual 5.5" square from a burgundy colored Bazzill CS, the next two layers are also from Bazzill.  The DPs I used are (again) from Making Memories Je t'Adore line.  I totally fell in love with all the designs in this line.  The mat behind Tilda is also from MM Je t'Adore journaling book.  I just trimmed it down to fit.  I stamped Tilda with Memento tuxedo black on PTI CS, colored her with Copics, cut her out, and adhered her to the mat piece. I ran a piece of padded pink heart ribbon to cover the seam between the two DPs, then added some tiny cotton lace flowers with pearls on the heart.  My bow is made from May Arts pink wrinkled ribbon done on my Bow Easy, and a rhinestone heart added.  That's it!
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I really need to use up most of the DPs I bought so I'd better get going!  Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and finding some time to craft and post to share with us.  All I have learned about cardmaking DID NOT come from a text book, but from all you lovely ladies out there and for that, I thank you very much!  I truly appreciate your taking the time to stop by and thank you for that! 
Oh, if you want to know what colors I used for her dress, its R81, 83, 85, her shoes E33, 31, and her hair E35, 33, 51.  That's it!  I'm a simple person, uncomplicated, and even when cooking, looks for recipes with few ingredients LOL!

Maggie Hugs,
