Hello Friends! Thanks for coming by today!! I hope that you enjoyed last weeks 3 Clovers Thursday challenge. It was fun to see your creations! I do have to finish looking at all of them this weekend.
This weeks theme was a little harder for me. Nature...?....Nature...?...what am I going to do for a Nature themed card? Oh nuts, I just sold that Stampin' Up set with all the trees...of course NOW it would be handy! LOL! So, I thought for a few more minutes....but lets face it....when we have new stamps we are going to make those work for something! hahahaha! I must have 175-200 Stampin' Up stamps sets. (YIKES! I was a demonstrator for 6 years, until recently) . I probably could have looked at those sets and found something more suitable. But, admittedly, I wanted to use my my new Yummy for Your Tummy Magnolia Stamps! :) I mean, Tilda is picking peaches...which means she is outside and that is very in touch with nature!
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Tilda image! I just think she is SO sweet! I don't know if it's her dress or the little bandana around her head...or what...? I know, some people think they all look the same. (GASP!) But I think each one has their own little personality. I even did a close up of her....How cute is she?! (btw- All the Yummy for Your Tummy collection is available at Magnolia-licious. And the Christmas stamps have just been restocked too!(including Alva and Alf!) I just ordered some!)

Sometimes when making a card it takes on an unexpected path. You know what I mean? I always choose my paper BEFORE coloring my image. Then I color my image to coordinate with my paper. That way I know the finished image will coordinate with what I want/have. And of course if I have Peachy Tilda and have Magnolia paper with peaches on it, it is a given that I will use that....but I needed to bring other colors in and the green from the leaves just was a little harsh, I thought. After debating with myself...I decided to go with a peach and brown color combo. What do you think? Is is too DULL?

Well, I have been trying to avoid these absurd blogging hours...but here it is 3:30 in the morning again. :P So I am going to cut this post off here.

I do hope that you can share with us your spin on a NATURE themed card!

Have an Exquisite Thursday!
