1st Sketch & Mingle Card

I am a new member of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group (my dear friend, Charlene, led the way.....thanks, Sis). This group is oozing with talent & so much inspiration. As part of that group I joined in the August Mingle. You make one card for one person during the month of August. Easy Peasy! So this is the card I made using my very first Tilda stamp "Tilda holding a single flower". She is available from Magnolia-licious. Diana has great customer service & is a delight.

Anywho.......on Magnolia-licious Highlites the amazingly talented Becca designed this sketch. So I decided to join in the fun there too for my very first time.

By the way.........another "first" for me was paper piecing Tilda's dress.

Thanks for looking & let me know what you think.

Cardbase: DCWV
Prima “Fancystix Flowers”
Copics: G000, RV10, RV11, RV13, R20, Y15, Y21, E000, E00, E02, E31, E33, E41, W0, W1, W7

Wow.....over 6,000 visitors!

OMGosh! I just realized that I have had over 6,000 visitors to my blog. Wow......that's amazing! When I started this blog back in December I had no clue what to do. But with the help of many hugsisters I took the plunge & have never regretted it.

The only regret I do have is that I don't post as much as I would like & don't craft as much either. I live in a house with 2 granddaughters (13 & 19), one daughter (41), one son (25), son's friend (24), my hubby & Golden Retriever. It's a full full house so there's a TON of distractions! But I'm not complaining...........I'm blessed!!!

Thank you to all of you who stop by & say HI and to all of my sweet sweet followers!

Happy Huggies to you all ~~~
