Magnolia Mania:)

Here is 'Tilda with Roses' - she arrived the other day from Bizzybecs so I just had to have a play...the sketch is from the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog that I discovered yesterday when I was out and about in blog world...and only the second time I've used my new 'Copics' pens:) I coloured in Tilda first then had to mix and match papers, ribbons, flowers etc to co-ordinate with her outfit and flowers?! So after a little bit of Cuttlebug embossing, friend stamp from Stampin' Up! and some extensive mix & match she is:)

Thank you tag:)

HELLLLLLOOOOOOO!! I'm finally back after...lets see...feels like forever!! I had a chance to organise and dust off the craft desk last weekend to make this little ole 'thank you' tag for my very generous friend and her husband for keeping an eye on our mini backyard farm of pets while we were away! They enjoyed the fresh eggs from the chooks, cuddles from the rabbit and mmm...lets see there were only 2 guinea pigs when we left and there are now 4?!? The kiddlywinks were just a little excited when we got home to the surprise of cute and cuddly babies! I had a little chance to play with my newly acquired 'copics' pens here on the 'Forest Friends' rabbit image from Stampin' Up! And an added bonus...I checked in over at Feline Playful for the latest in challenges and I'm entering the tag over at Dutch Dare Card Challenges...stay tuned for a little more fun with the latest crafty bits that have just somehow arrived onto my craft desk...hee hee:)
