TILDA WITH LACE JEANS

Good evening fellow Magnolia-ites!  It's mid-week already!  Hope your week is going fine.  I started on this card about two weeks ago as soon as I got some new stamps from Diana's Magnolia-licious store (click on the store icon on my sidebar) but just didn't know what to do.  I started looking for some DPs and decided on using my new Imaginisce 6"x6" pad from the Garden Party and started coloring her to match the DPs.  I thought I'd try my first twisted easel card, then pondered "what could Tilda be looking down at?"  So I pulled out the little ladybug from an older collection that I just can't remember at the moment.  No matter how I tried to lay it all out, something wasn't right so I put all the pieces in a Ziplock for later.  I was going to recolor the ladybugs to pink, but never got around to it.  I don't know why I colored them brown/tan. They look like they just came from a mud bath LOL! Today I saw a fabby card by Sharon and she has the most adorable card and her ladybug is so cute you must go check it out.  I had a little "chat" with Sharon, and being the sweet gal that Sharon is, she encouraged me to give it a go.  So I thought, okay, what is, IS, then I can put this behind me and get started on my Easter cards.  I'll add another sentiment on the front before I send this out so I left a space in the upper left-hand corner.  So here is my version:
Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to stop by, and for all the encouraging comments you have left me.  The Magnolia-licious group is one of the most inter-active group I have belonged to, with so many wonderfully talented and creative people who always share their work and skills.  Anyone can learn anything there is to learn from cardmaking to 3-D projects, coloring, supplies, the list goes on.  I take my hat off to all of you and for the many friendships formed each day.  Have a beautiful day, each and every one of you, every single day!




Warm Maggie Hugs,

Cute as can be Cami!!! The bugs are perfect to go with this Tilda!!! Pretty papers and great job on your twisted easel card!!!

Janie Printz said...

Cami this card is incredible & I love your take on the "mud bath" ladybugs. They've probably just been hibernating & are ready to come out of hiding for spring. Your papers are wonderful as is the sweet little Tilda colored so perfectly. LOVE those little white dots on her cheeks. Must be made using the great little pen. Thanks to some wonderful lady, I think I have one & must try it.
Stunning card & must give this twisted easel a try. Great look but it still looks pretty complicated to me.
Hugs, Janie

I love your card, Cami! Just thought I've already commented on this one. I guess I just starred at it a couple of days ago and forgot to:)
I love these colors and the great idea of adding the ladybugs. I wanted to buy this one too but thought it was difficult to use it by herself and had to make up something to go with:)) You've solved this problem:))
Love your coloring and the lovely layout too!
Hugs, Iulia
