My very first Tilda!

I have fallen in love with these precious little stamps! I used my copics to color her in. I don't think I did too bad with her for my first attempt, huh? What do you think? What I'm disappointed in most with this card, is that I made the entire card in order to use some awesome cherry ribbon that my wonderful friend and adopted "sis", Teri, sent me! And then after getting the card together, the cherry ribbon with the cherry paper was just too busy. It broke my heart. Oh well....guess I just have to make another cherry card, huh? *smile*
I made the cherry background paper myself! The cherry stamp is by Stampendous called "little cherries", and then I colored them in with my copics. Can you tell I like cherries??? LOL!


The frame she's sitting on was cut with my Cricut Expression and the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I just printed the sentiment from MS Word on my computer. Used some white chalk ink around the scalloped frame and then stitched around the inside frame. The little scalloped heart is a punch by Martha Stewart, as is the border punch that I used up both sides.

Thanks so much for coming by to visit me, and I would love it if you would say hi when you're here! Your visits are very much appreciated by me! Have a wonderful Friday and I'll see you this weekend with more crafty things!! Please go by and check out Magnolia vs Stampavie! What a fun site and they have great challenges!! I've entered this one in the "show us your bows" challenge!! If you love the Magnolia or Stampavie images, go have yourself some fun!!!
