Better late than never

That seems to be my motto lately, lol! I hate being late ~~ I'm one of those who's always early. But with my cards ~ not so much. I received this adorable Magnolia image from Ila last week. She's so sweet, she sent me a whole envelope full of fun images ~~~ not just the cutie-pie girls, but also some accessories!! I can't wait to play with more of them!!

Knowing I wanted to play along with SCS's sketch challenge last week, I pulled this Tilda out, plus the papers I wanted to use. And there it sat. And sat. And sat. After it sits for so long I don't even want to do it anymore! But I was determined to get it done before the next challenge was posted. That would be today!! So, at 11:00 last night, I finished this card. I couldn't take a picture, though, until this morning, so you'll just have to take my word for it that I did in fact finish it BEFORE the next challenge was posted!!

I used a lot of paper from DCWV on this ~~ Pocket Full of Posies, the Fall matstack & the Brights matstack. I just love all those pads ~~ I love how everything coordinates & I love that many of the papers have glitter on them. Less work for me!! I found a sun in one of my Michael's clear dollar sets so I stamped it, colored it with Twinkling H2O's & cut it out. I think it's the perfect compliment to this beautiful little angel. I used a glue pen & Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings. I finished the card off with some pseudo Dew Drops. That's what I call the little drops from Michael's. How did I get them purple?? I used my 1/4" hole punch to punch out some of the purple cardstock I used as a matte & used Crystal Effects to glue it to the bottom of the bauble. Voila ~~ a matching pseudo Dew Drop!!

Here's a better picture of her beautiful, sparkly wings :)

My hubby is at the doctor right now for his follow up ~~ I'm pretty sure surgery is in his future. I hope they can schedule it quickly, because without it, he can't eat!! He can only survive for so long on chicken broth & ice cream!! Thanks for all of your continuing well wishes & support!
