For You

I made this Tilda card last night using the February Magnolia Sketch. I used "Pink Tilda with Rose." She and other Magnolia stamps can be ordered Here. My card is a bit smaller than what the sketch requires. To do the sketch so that you see all the layers, it would be better to do a 5"x 5" or larger card. I used a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" layout. I find it easier to mail the smaller cards, because I always have this size of envelope on hand. I used one of my favorite packs of CTMH paper called "More to Adore." I haven't used this paper in a while. Once I used it, I realized how much I really do love this paper. I love the colors in it...Chocolate, Blush and Hollyhock. Very Valentine like. You can order it Here. I used my Fiskars Border punch to creat the scalloped edge and some Bella dots on the Prima Flowers. And, speaking of Valentine's. Have a great Valentine's Day. What are your plans? Bill and I are going to take a ride out to the Ocean and have lunch at a restaurant over looking the water. I love the ocean even when it's stormy. It's one of my favorite places to be. I remember when I was in my 20's, whenever I had troubles in my mind I would drive out to the ocean and just sit on the sand and stare at the waves and let my worries escape me. Have a wonderful day no matter what you do.

Have a great time at the ocean! I'll be able to see the ocean at dinner too, but the Puget Sound isn't too fun to be close to, lol. I would love to have some warmer weather!

Your card is just precious! I will have to try to play!
