This stamped is described on the Magnolia Stamp website as Tilda with a Cowberry Muffin. mmmmm...mmmmmm...mmmmmmmm! I love a good cowberry! huh? Until I just a few minutes ago I had no idea what a cowberry was. You can find out more about cowberries here. I just thought that it looked like a cute little cupcake! Anyhow........I thought Tilda would look cute in her Christmas apron. Of course I had to add some stickles to the cupcake frosting. But that is the only glitter on the whole card!

I know that I can't be the only one who buys paper, embellishments, punches, ribbons...whatever...never uses it...then a year later "rediscovers" it in her craft room...then gets the feeling that this item MUST be used on my next card! That's how it was tonight(last night/Wednesday night) with these holly leaves and berries. These were going on this card...somewhere, somehow! But I am not sure if Ireally like them on there. Does it look like a giant plant is growing from her head? I don't know...but I was determined to use them!

So this is card number 4 with this weeks sketch. For those of you just tuning in, I have been using the same sketch to post a new card each day this week. Tomorrow (Friday) is Bloggers Challenge day....ooooooh...I have to meet the challenge AND stick to this sketch. Will she do it? Can she meet the double challenge? Tune in Friday to find out!

Until then, Have a Triumphant Thursday!

Each card is so very different. If you didn't tell us they were the same design I don't know if I would have really noticed! Each one has been fantastic and using the different stamps has made it so much fun. You are doing GREAT. I LOVE them all.
