Cozy Tilda aka "Muffy"

Hello everyone!! Wow...Thursday already!! My kids have an early day tomorrow.....VERY early....11:35 release.....now what is the point? 3 hours....it takes us almost that much time to even get ready for school, lol! But they have off on Monday, so that will be a nice long weekend :)

Today I'm taking a wee break from all the High Hopes fun to show you a card I made with one of my new Magnolias....



She's called Cozy Tilda, but I like to call her "Muffy". You know, because she has a muff!! I received her in my last order from 7 Kids College Fund & couldn't wait to ink her up!! I used my Copics to color her....then used a Warm Gray Prisma pencil for a bit of shading. I added glitter to her hat & wings.....& Cotton Ball White Fun Flock to her muff. The papers are SU's Chocolate Chip & Cloud 9 Cocoa Mint, a 12x12 pack of paper I got at Joann for just $6 on sale!!! I didn't really need any more paper........but I just can't pass up a deal!! The "For You" sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, & itwas cut & matted with my Oval Nesties. Added a few punched flowers....some stitching....some Quickutz flourishes....& some crocheted lace. I must say Muffy looks quite adorable!!!




A few close ups of Muffy.....can ya see her fur? :)




This card is all finished on the inside so it's ready to go on Etsy!! You can see I made a matching envelo-box. I usually find that regular envelopes don't work with my big ole lumpy cards, so I often make a 1/4" thick envelo-box with my Enveloper. Greatest invention ever, & 7 Kids College Fund sells them RIGHT HERE!! A must have if you make bulky cards!




Speaking of 7 Kids & Magnolias......Tab has the new Raising the Ceiling collection available for preorder. I see a few I must have!! Also available for preorder is the next issue of Magnolia Ink. I missed out on the first issue....so I already preordered mine!!! Get yours while you can, or you'll be running around begging people to find you just one last issue that you can buy....please....I *must* have that Christmas issue......

*ahem*......so plan ahead!!!! Groveling is *not* pretty!!

Thanks for visiting & have a great night!!
