Cookies Anyone???

Happy Valentine's Weekend Everyone!  Oh, I sure hope you're all having a great Valentine's weekend!  Ours started last night with a great family dinner at an italian restaurant.  My sweet little boy gave me a gift card for my birthday to take me out to dinner.  We had a wonderful time.  Then, I got to spend the entire day today in my craft room.  I wanted to make a special card for my sweet hubby.  Tomorrow, we may be spending Valentine's Day at my brother's house for a birthday party.  I say 'may' because I've heard through the grapevine that it may happen, but nothing has been decided for certain.  I guess we'll just wait and see.

Anyway, I decided to combine the task of making my Sweetie a card with the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge.  Diana Crick has challenged the DT to a Windshield Wiper Card with a Spring theme.  The challenge has been opened to all who would like to participate.  You have until February 28th at midnight EST.

I'm also entering this card into these challenges:

Just Magnolia - Love

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Love Is In the Air

Cute Card Thursday - In The Name Of Love!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Colour Combo

Lili of the Valley - Valentines

Double Dutch - Valentines

The Pink Elephant - Mushy Gushy Valentine

Tilda with Cookies

I was so excited to make one of these cards because I had never made one before.  It was actually very easy to make and I think they look fantastic.  You can find a tutorial HERE by Diane Zechman if you'd like to make one too.  I searched for dp's with a flavor of love and the colors of spring.  I settled on the Sugar Rush collection by BasicGrey.  They have all the colors of a spring flower garden.  The cs is by Stampin' Up, per usual.  The adorable red gingham ribbon was purchased by-the-yard from the craft store.  I wish I could tell you more about because it is so unique and you'll probably want to get some.  Sorry : (  The pink pearl in the center is from K&Company.  The pink floss is by Bazzill and the heart token is from Blue Moon.  I used clear gems and colored them with Copic R39.  The adorable little yellow rose is new from Prima and I colored the tips of the petals with Copic R37.  The chipboard hearts are from Maya Road and I covered them with Stickles.  The backgrounds for Tilda and the red heart were cut with Nestabilities.  The furry green fibers on the edge of the card are from BasicGrey.  Finally, for a little sparkle, I added Stickles around Tilda's background, to the cookies, Tilda's bow, shoes and wings.  I think that's it.  I hope I didn't forget anything : )

Here you can see the Copic markers used to color Tilda.  I darkened the shadowed areas with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink from Ranger.  I also used the Walnut Stain to age the edges of the dp's all around the card.

That's all I have for now.  I'll see you back later this week.  Try to find some time to color.  It's good for the soul.

Ciao for now,
