Papertake Weekly - Three of a kind!!


Yay! We made it through Monday!!   A quick note about last weeks big birthday blog hop at Papertake Weekly....A huge thank you to all who helped us celebrate our 3rd birthday! Dawny had gathered so many fabulous prizes, that each designer got to give away a prize! I had some people a little confused about how they were going to be entered when they had one number for their entry on my blog, and another number for their entry over on Papertake Weekly. Here is how it worked. If you linked your card to my blog (I had 63 links), you had your numbers for this blog. Then I added the links from the Papertake Weekly blog. So #1 on Papertake Weekly blog, was actually #64 for the drawing for the Simon Says Stamp gift certificate. So if you linked your card on both blogs, you actually got two chances at the prize. The winners are listed over at Papertake Weekly, so be sure to check it out! (other blogs handled their prizes in their own special way)

The challenge for this week is still keeping with our 3rd birthday theme, and we're asking for "three of a kind" on your project. For my card this week, I chose to use an adorable Magnolia stamp from Magnolia-licious, #311 Tilda with Flag from the Autumn 2010 collection. I just think she's cute as a button! And you can stamp or write anything on her flag that you want making her extremely versatile!  I love her, but I don't think I would want to be around when she takes off those leather shoes after not wearing any socks! Can you say P U!!!!!! Cardstock is Bazzill, papers are digital from Nitwits, ribbon is May Arts silk and buttons and charm are from stash.

Tilda's dress is paper pieced, and I added some shadows to it with Copics. I machine stitched the different layers, and that pretty much does it for this card.  Please be sure to hop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of my DT sisters fabulous creations, and check the list of winners to see if you were lucky! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
