Thanksgiving Tilda and I am Tooting *heehee*

Stamps: #282 STANDING FALL TILDA; Sentiment by unknown. Papers: Debbie Mumm's Harvest and Holiday pad Other: Wooden buttons from Bunny Zoe's store; braided rope thing from LSS; Leaf from Michaels; Ivory Kaiser pearls; oval Nesties. Card Measures 6x6

Hello Stampin' Friends! Thanks for stopping by today. I know that I have neglected my blog this week. I apologize for my lack of sharing. We have all been sick in my house. ICK! It has been miserable here. Lot's of tears....and some are even from the kids! :)

I had made this card Monday night. I was just starting to feel sick. I nearly didn't finish it Monday, but I am glad that I did or it would still be sitting in my craft room unfinished. Anyhoooo, bcause I wasn't feeling I didn't keep track of the copics used. I think I may go back to my old way of photographing the Copics I used, as I am too forgetful this new way.

This card was made for this months Magnolia-Licious DT sketch. You can see the sketch and read the deets on you participating at the Magnolia-Licious Highlites Blog!
I LOVE this Fall Tilda! She was one of my first Tilda's. ( you can get yours at Magnolia-Licious!) I like to use her for Thankgiving cards. Those of us from Canada and the US have to get a little creative in implementing Magnolia Stamps into our Thanksgiving cards, as Magnolia doesn't do Thanksgiving. It's pretty easy to do with the right paper and embellies, almost any Tilda or Edwin will work!

Has everyone gotten their copy of Magnolia Ink Magazine yet?! It beautiful isn't it?! You can get a subscription for all of 2010 from Magnolia-Licious.

***TOOT! TOOT!*** Here is where I am tooting! ;) Tooting my own horn! Did you notice that my projects are on page 40? Yep, that card and candle are by me! I was so excited when Magnolia emailed me and told me that I won 2nd place in their challenge back in September. I have been not so patiently waiting for the magazine to come out. I have never been (or tried to be) published in a magazine before. My Orla thinks I am famous now! LOL! It's so wonderful to have an 8 year old around to think you're great! LOL!

Hopefully I will be feeling better next week and have more projects to share.

Have a Stupendous Weekend! And Stay Healthy!
