Just Magnolia # 21 and Cute Card Thursday # 76....Tilda rides her bike to school!


Here is my card that I made for the Just Magnolia challenge with Mina's fabulous sketch and for the Cute Card Thursday challenge....Back to School!!

I had to ink up this sweet Tilda with her bicycle that I ordered from Simon Says Stamp...a really great on-line shop! The services is really fabulous and they shipped it so quickly too! Well, I stamped her on Neenah paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers. Since Tilda is heading to school she needed to bring her books and an apple for her teacher. I stamped the books and apple from the Magnolia desk stamp, coloured it in and cut it out. I cut a slit in the image where the basket is and tucked the books and the apple in the basket.

I cut a 6x6 carbase from light blue Bazzill Bling cardstock and used patterned paper by Flair Designs from the Fresh and Fabulous collection...I really love this paper...such pretty colours!
I printed, cut and inked the edges of one of the round labels from the Shabby Shop..this one is from the Child's Words collection! To finish it off I added some ribbon from Micheals, some Primas and a Melissa Frances rub-on....I have to tell you I had originally cut a rub-on that said I heart recess...well I lost it in my scrapbooking room...it's gotta be in there somewhere but I looked high and low for it...well I finally had to pick a different sentiment,smile.

Here is a close up of the books and apple tucked into the bike basket!
Well, there you have it...another card...this one was a lot of fun to make, well, except for loosing my rub-on...I'll probably find it stuck to my butt or something like that, SNORT!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hugs,

Love your card & the added apple & books in the basket.........really cute. I had to laugh at you losing your rub on. LOL Just a few minutes ago I was eating some Jr. Mints & I felt like I dropped one but couldn't find it anywhere. I just know I'll find it later in an unexpected place. LOL

Hey T, this is a really sweet card and the colours are perfect. I love how you modified Tilda to fit with the school theme!
Do you remember sending me that Momento Ink? Can you believe it's still going and yet it's all I ever use?!!! That's some going!
Now go check your butt for that rub-on girl, hee hee!
