Tilda Times Three

Good morning!!
I have fallen in love with Tilda, she is so fun to create with!
This card is for this weeks' Just Magnolia challenge to paper piece a Magnolia stamp! I combined several challenges, just because I wanted to try them out...the last two were to use distress ink for an antique look, and the layout was similar to the layout given a couple of weeks back.
Have you ever come to a dead end in a card when you realize that you don't have just the right shade of prima? That happened to me, then I remembered these beautiful fairy primas given to me by my good friend, Joanne, (JoJot) in Steamboat...and I have to say, they were a sigh of giddy relief. Thanks so much Joanne~
One thing about Tilda, she is never in a hurry. She just bides her time and goes around spreading sunshine everywhere!
Thanks for stopping by today, and Tilda has some iced tea on the porch if you have a minute...


  1. Tilda is looking fiiiiine in her paper pieced outfit. Funny, I was painting a Tilda this afternoon, to post later. Very cute Traci.
