Thinking of You

Hello - The start of a long weekend always makes me happy.  Here in Canada we are celebrating Thanksgiving on Monday and I am looking forward to 3 days off and being able to spend more time in my craft room creating.  I made this card a few days ago and I am not sure what it is but I wasn't happy about how it turned out and I put it in my "discarded" drawer - I have a drawer that is getting full of cards that are not up to "my" standards - it can be very frustrating sometimes having this type of personality - expecting so much of myself - I decided that this was probably the best of the worst (of the past few cards I made) so I decided to post this one.  I love this Tilda she is called "Tilda with Ugg shoes" and she is from the Australian collection.  I used paper that was in my paper stash drawer and added flowers, Marianne die but, Martha Stewart punch and Memory Box die.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs.  Thanks for taking time to visit my blog and if you are Canadian "Happy Turkey Weekend".

Star Student

Hello everyone - this card I made using the adorable Autumn Tilda with pencils.  I just love these new Autumn Magnolias - each one is just as cute as the other and that makes it so hard to choose which ones to buy as well.  I used an older 6 x 6 paper pad set from My Mind's Eye for some of the paper and to cut out the school and apple.  The sentiment is also from the same paper pack.  I colored Tilda with copic markers but did paper piece her dress.  I added some black gingham ribbon and a black Fiskars die for the border on the bottom.  Our warm summer like weather unfortunately ended yesterday with a big wind storm bringing in much cooler autumn weather - ugh!!  Oh well I guess we were very fortunate to have the warm weather as long as we did.  It is Thanksgiving weekend coming up here in Canada so I am really looking forward to a nice long weekend and of course more time in my craft room.  Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog.
