Are your ready for some FOOTBALL?

Hello stamping friends! Are you ready for the superbowl this weekend? My husband and kids are big fans of football, especially the Patriots who are playing this weekend.  So I made a fun card for them.


I used this adorable Cheerleader Tilda from Magnolia. I actually colored her quite some time ago and when I pulled her out I was happy to see she was colored in Patriots colors.  I also used Magnolia's Doohickey die - Starlight Lace and used the stars that were punched out from this die to embellish my card.

I hope you like my card today! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I think this Tilda is sooooo cute and I LOVE this new house background. So cozy! Here are the details:

TOMIC - Wild Tilda (grrr....)

Howdy friends! Our challenge this week at TOMIC is to use  monochromatic pinks on your card/project AND a bow.  I couldn't wait to make something with this cutie:



I made this valentine card using Wild Tilda. Isn't she adorable!? I made an easel card using my heart spellbinder dies. My sentiment is computer generated. I've gotten alot of use out of the pink fringe paper/ribbon that I used to trim my card (I got it from Love To Stamp). I also used the heart swirl doohickey die and my flowers are from WOC. Copic colors I used on this image are: E000, E00, R20, RV69, R85, R83, R81, RV10, RV000, E35, YR23, Y23, Y21, Y000.

This image would be fun to use on Halloween cards too. Love her! Well that's all for now. Have a great day.
