Happy Friday! I am happy to tell you that the temperature has been steadily climbing and we should be at 22 C by Saturday. Crazy weather! Image going from snow to this in 4 days!
This week at Friday Sketchers, it was Claudia’s turn to provide us with a sketch and it is super fun to work with! Just to let you know that we are celebrating our 2nd Birthday over at Friday Sketchers and we will be having a special birthday blog bash next week…….complete with some surprises! I hope you will be able to join us!
Heidi received this in her Spring Kit and very kindly stamped this and a few others for me. I think her Fairytale order is in so you won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on this one! She will be sending the stamp my way too but sent me this in advance! She knows me all too well! Patience is something I struggle with……….especially when it comes to Magnolia stamps! I think this is probably now my favorite Tilda of all time and I loved coloring her up! Then sketch was just perfect to create an elegant card and really show-case this gorgeous image. I added some stickles around the edge of the cardstock, her head-piece and on the ground underneath and the sliders were some that I got from my friend Jacqueline’s store ->here<-

I also have my card for this week’s Wags ‘n Whiskers challenge to show you. It was my turn to pick a theme and I picked “April Showers bring May flowers”. So I want to see flowers on your project. I picked this theme a while ago and it is pretty ironic that in actual fact it snowed all over my beautiful tulips and daffodils earlier this week!
I used the super cute “Let’s Go Team” stamp from our last release. OMGosh she is a true fan, isn’t she? My middle son (who likes to peruse my projects everyday) really loves this one. I asked him what he liked. Perhaps my coloring? The clever use of flowers as her pom-poms? Maybe the bright paper? No, he told me she looks “crazy excited” and she must be cheering for our hockey team: The Montreal Canadians (who are playing brilliantly at the moment). I just laughed and told him she would make a good girlfriend for him since that is how he looks when he is watching a hockey game! He thought that was gross………….at the moment, girls in general are gross. Except me, but apparently I am not even a girl. I am his “mother”! Sorry, I am babbling, but that is the general level of conversation that I have most of the time.
