Tilda with a Rose

Hello Everyone~  as you all know I'm crazy about the Magnolia line.  This is a new little girl I received this past week from their "Pink Collection".  I had such fun creating this one.  I used the SU scallop to edge the base paper, which is a shimmery ivory paper.  I can't remember where I got this shimmer paper sorry.  The corner punch is a scallop 2 part punch by Paper Shapers.  I stamped her dress on shimmery pink paper, then cut and pasted it on top of the original image.  This is a fun way to add some dimension to your piece.  Her little wing is a shimmery piece of vellum.  I used watercolor pencils for the rest of her.  I also used a few buttons.  I just think she's precious....hope you do too!

Hey Bella It's Cold Outside!

I am sorry it's been so long since I've posted.  I had foot surgery to remove a heel spur (and phew what a doozie) and have been dealing with that the past few weeks.  I am healing well, but still have stitches and am not allowed to drive.  I'm hoping this changes next week!!!!!  Thanks for all my wonderful yahoo group friends who've sent me wonderful get well cards and emails!
So since it's getting chilly out I decided to play with this cute little Bella who's got to be freezing her patootie off in this outfit!  I found these gorgeous sparkly snowflakes at Michaels this week!  They are by Me and My BIG Ideas.  They were my initial inspiration.  I used the cuttlebug embossing folder for the snowflake background panel.  I used watercolor pencils for the Bella but added some white flocking on her coat and boot to add a touch of fluff:)  Hope you enjoy her and that you're dressed more warmly for these chilly days hehe.
