Stylish Tilda

Good Thursday everyone!! Oh geez.......Thursday......I forgot a recipe AGAIN this week! Oh well, you'd rather see a card, right??

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the wonderful ELAINE, who so very kindly sent me 4 Rachelle Anne Miller stamps after reading that I didn't own any. THEN she sent me 5......count 'em .....FIVE....brand new Magnolia stamps!!! To say she spoils me would be an understatement!! I finally got to use one of those adorable Magnolias she sent me!!





Here is Stylish Tilda. I'd say she's my favorite, but probably just for today :) Tomorrow it will be whichever one I ink up next, lol. I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, & added a bit of sparkle to her wings with my Copic clear glitter pen. The papers are Bazzill Bling Red Carpet (I think this is my most used color of Bling) & Emerald, & K&Co Margo. I bought 3 pads of the Margo when they were on sale a while back, & they're almost GONE!!! I just love the rich colors! The flowers are a Cuttlebug die, the leaves are a Martha punch & the little "friend" tag is from a *huge* container of tags I bought at Michael's about a year ago. I'd better slow down....I only have about 989 left in the container, lol. Seriously, I paid about $6 & got about 1000 tags, lol!




Here's a close up of Miss Tilda. I want a hat like hers :)

I did decorate the inside, but it turned out blurry & I was too lazy to retake the pic, lol. You'll just have to take my word for it.....it matches the front!

We had a great day yesterday celebrating Michael's birthday. I took them to see Harry Potter, which was very........lonnngggggg. Almost 3 hours! Yikes! Why didn't somebody tell me!?! My back was aching!! I always thought the theater seats were comfy....but I don't think I've ever sat in one for that long!! As I said I'm not much of a Harry fan.....I've seen enough bits & pieces of previous movies to know the main characters....& I did cry when ***** died. What??? There could be one or two people who haven't seen it yet!!!!!! I don't want to be the one who spoiled it (speaking of which....there was a trailer for the New Moon movie. Now, I'm about 1/3 of the way through the book. I'm reading another book at the same time, so it's taking me a while. TALK ABOUT A SPOILER!!!!!! In the trailer they showed something very significant about someone, & I HADN'T READ THAT PART YET!!!! Grrrrrrrrr.....guess that's what I get for being so slow!) Anyway, the movie was good, but very long. Michael got quite antsy toward the end. Heck, *I* got antsy toward the end, lol!! Anyway, we went shopping after, ate a bunch of greasy junk for dinner & had cake. A good day indeed. His birthday party with his friends isn't until next week Friday.....the celebration continues!!!!

I know I'm being long winded....but I also wanted to mention that I was recently asked to join an AMAZING group of paper craft sellers on Ebay! The name of the group is The Paper Hen House, or TPHH. You can see their auctions HERE (including mine now, too!!!). I'm sure you've seen those wonderful scrap layouts....with all the punches....& the tear bears....the ones that fetch big bucks. They do those!! I admire every one of these sellers, & I'm honored to be a part of their group!!!

Ok, that's enough yapping!!! If you are still reading...thank you!! LOL!! I appreciate each & every one of you!!!!

Hi Michelle,
Your colouring is fantastic, you certainly do the Tildas much more justice than I ever could.
Glad to hear that Michael enjoyed his birthday. Unfortunately, I can't sit still for long enough to watch the HP films, I get a numb bottom!
Have a good weekend
Lots of love
