Tilda & Bunny Birthday Card

Happy Friday! I am writing my post tonight instead of tomorrow morning. I am getting up to watch the Royal Wedding in the morning and with the time difference between England and Canada….that means that if I don’t want to miss anything, I have to get up at 3am! Yikes! My hubbie thinks I am crazy but I can’t help it. Both my parents were from the UK and have instilled this love for all things Royal in me! In fact I have been talking about it and watching all the news that my middle son (total cutie) thought I was actually invited and going to the wedding!  LOL! I had to tell him that the Queen doesn’t actually know me.

Here is another sweet Magnolia card to share with you today. I think this is such a sweet image and it doesn’t have to be used only for Easter. The little birthday sentiment is not glued down. It can be slipped out and filled in for the special recipient.

Easter - Page 114

I used some Magnolia DP for this once. I believe it was from the Wedding Collection. The flowers were from my stash and the crochet ribbon and the wrinkled ivory ribbon are both available at Stamp & Create. I embossed the edges of the focal panel with some Whiff of Joy swirls and then sponged over it with Antique linen distress ink.

Here is another view:

I have entered it in the following challenges:

Wow! That must be a record for me!

So, I am off to bed to get some shut-eye! My hubbie wants to know if I am going to dress up! LOL! I happened to buy a few new outfits today…there was a big sale and I bought a couple of gorgeous silk tops (ruby red and cobalt blue), a floral sort of sheer top, a lovely lime green cardigan, black capris and grey pinstriped boot cut pants. I am so NOT a big shopper but today was just one of those days…probably wont’ go shopping until the fall now :)

Thanks for stopping by……giving the “Royal Wave”

Hugs Jeanette xxo

Oh Jeannette, I so enjoyed reading your post and I too was enjoying the Royal Wedding here in South Africa, but didn't have to get up an early as you, as we're only 1 hour ahead of the UK now. Wasn't it fabulous!!!! Your card is absolutely adorable, just love this little Tilda, which you've coloured in so beautifully. TFS, cheers for now, Sharon x
