Blueberry Tilda

TGIF!!!! And what a day it was! I took off today to have some aloooooone time.....hubby is up north & with him working 2nd shift, I don't get the peace & quiet I used to after the kids got on the bus. So I had a list of things I wanted to do today.....but a higher power had different plans for me. I got a call from the school at 10 that Michael's ear was hurting. He's been congested & coughing for 3 weeks....at first I thought it was cold, then when it didn't go away I thought it was allergies & started giving him Claritin. But the school has a thingie that tests fluid levels in ears, & lo & behold, his were high . So off to the dr.....she said she thinks it's a sinus infection that's turning into an ear infection. Poor guy.....& bad mommy!! I definitely didn't win any awards today. But he was never sick sick.....never tired, never complained....he was just stuffy......sigh....hopefully he's on the mend now :)

Anyway.....in between all that I did manage to get a card done!!!! I've had Blueberry Tilda stamped for a week now, & finally got to do something with her!!



I colored her with Prismas & gamsol....& used the only papers I could find with even a hint of blueberry-y color in them......K&Company Madeline. The matte is SU's Purely Pomegranate, which I am almost out of :( The layout started out as the Just Magnolia sketch, but my main image was too big & I couldn't quite squeeze that 3rd panel in. I glitterized her apron & used my Martha doily lace punch on the borders. I also used it on my flower, a cute little concept I found on *someone's* blog.....can't remember whose....I apologize, I look at way too many blogs!! Added the Hero Arts sentiment, some ribbon & rhinestones & I think she is just sparkly beautiful!




Ready for my close up!!!


Remember, you can preorder the Magnolia Yummy For Your Tummy collection from 7 Kids College Fund HERE........it looks like she expects them to ship in late September/early October. That's coming up quick!! And.....she will also have the new Spooky collection....more info available on that this weekend!!!!

Well I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! It's supposed to be beautiful once again here.....& even though I *still* have a long list of things to do I'm going to spend as much time as I can outside!!! Before we know it, the snow will be flying!! Ugh!!!!
