Friends Always...

Hello Everyone!!!  I sure hope your weekend is going well so far.  I've been sooooooo busy getting the books ready for the accountant.  This is a very hectic time of year for us.  But things will slow down a bit for me once I ship everything off to the accountant.  You know, I studied finance in school because I couldn't stand accounting.  Now, it's the part of the business that I have to deal with.  Ugh!!!

Before we get down to play time, we have the winner of my MDUC Birthday Blog Candy!  The winner was chosen using Random.org and she is number 73, Marian from 'Only By His Grace Paper Crafting'!!!  Congratulations Marian!!!

Now, back to play time.  I made this card a short time ago for Magnolia Down Under Challenges and I'm so happy to be able to show it off.  The MDUC challenge this week is with this really great sketch and the DT has put together some really wonderful creations for you to see.  Make sure to head over there to check them out.  And...be sure to get to work on your own creations to enter into the challenge.  It's a really cool one!  I can't wait to see what you come up with : - )

I had a lot of fun with this sketch.  Here's what I came up with...

Tilda with Bow

I LOVE THIS IMAGE OF TILDA!!!  This is one of my absolute favorite Magnolia images.  Doesn't she look so sweet in the field with her tank top and jeans???  I added the field, but she still looks so comfy!  I get my Maggie's at Magnolia-licious.  They have the largest inventory in the USA and the service is impeccable.  You can find Tilda, #209 Standing with Hair Bow right HERE.  She's currently on re-order and will be back in stock soon.  She's a popular girl!  Feel free to stock up on the others as well!!!  Who can resist???  The Hoppy Easter/Spring collection just came out and the store is stocked!  I'll be working with them this next week and I can't wait to show you what I come up with.  Stay tuned!

The dp's are from My Mind's Eye and the cs is SU.  The white flowers are by Petaloo and I made the coordinating flowers with a paper punch, some Glimmer Mist and Mark Richards black gems.  The photo corners were cut with a Cuttlebug die.  I don't know the maker of the sentiment, but I love it.  I used Stickles here and there for a little something shiny.

I colored the image using watercolor with distress ink and Copic markers.  I added the field of flowers using both as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my creation.  Try to find some time to color!!!

Ciao for now,
