Fun Times


Well, it has been a few days since I last posted, but life has been busy. We finally got the yard in and it looks great. I took a class on quilling, so you get to see my first attempt to embellish a card with it. Not the greatest, but okay. The center should have been a little bigger I think.

Anyway, on to the card. This is an older Maggie called Tilda with a Swimsuit and the Bridge Deck from the Party and Vacation collection. But, I think she is so cute. She is colored iwith Copic Sketch markers (E00, E01, R20, YR12, YR14, B41, B45, Y23, Y32, W1, W3, and BG01). I used the Waterfall Stickles on the water and Stardust Stickles on her wings. The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is Making Memories' English Garden. The sun I quilled with yellow graduated quilling strips from Quilled Creations. The sentiment is from TLC Creations and is punched out with a punch from Stampin Up. The flower is from Martha Stewart Crafts and the ribbon is some I got from Hancock Fabric Store.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
