Tilda with Rose - Friday Sketchers

For my card today I have used the gorgeous Tilda with Rose Magnolia image which was sent to me from Jakki - thank you! My friend Kelly currently has 10% off her Magnolia stamps in her store and also free shipping when buying these stamps in January! This offer only applies to my US and Canadian visitors as unfortunatley she cannot ship worldwide.

I have used the fabulous sketch designed by Heidi for Friday Sketchers. I so want to win the cute Alota stamp this week as I just adore the little girl with the sweet kitty. The papers I have used are Cloud 9 - Mint Swirl and Climbing Flowers which were sent to me from Agnes - thank you!. I just love the wire words and a great variety of these can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts. My image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend.

I would like to thank Kim for passing the above award to me a couple of days ago.

This will be my last post before Christmas and will be back posting again on January 1st when I will show a gorgeous set for the High Hopes Project of the Month. We are going away Friday for a long weekend and you may be thinking that i'm having a break from crafting but I will be working on lots of projects to show you at the beginning of January ;-)

I would like to Wish all my friends and visitors a....
