Two Fun Cards

Today is being hailed as one of the top 10 days of the year here in Connecticut, and I would have to concur! It is warm, sunny, but not too warm because of the light breeze wafting through through windows. I have 2 great cards to share with you. First, there is the beautiful tent card my daughter made for a friend as a graduation gift. It is based on the tutorial from the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog post titled "Punched Screen Card." I am so proud of the work she did, I had to share!
(If you are looking for my Magnolia card, scroll down a little.)

This beautiful butterfly with the Serenity Prayer
came from the rubber stamp show
we went to a couple of weeks ago. (Stamp Camp)
There are rhinestones, and pearls and dewdrops,
buttons, flowers and glitter.
The edges of all the punched pieces are
distressed with walnut ink.
we had great fun crafting together during her visit with us.
She is heading back to life in the convent on Sunday.

For my Maggie card, I have a sweet image that arrived from Susan at Killam Creative in her box of blog candy. I wanted to show off some of the goodies she included,
as well as to thank her again! THANKS SUSAN!

Here are the challenges I am entering:

Just Magnolia--sketch
Magnolia Down Under--swirly swirls
Magnolia BD Bash, week 4--bling
A Spoonful of Sugar--sunshine inspired

Susan gave me the lovely sunny yellow lace and flowers.
the sparkling stick pin, the little rhinestone flower centers and the purple flowers the rhinestones are decorating, in addition to this Tilda image!
She took the time to browse through my blog to find images I didn't seem to have...can you imagine how her thoughtfulness touched my heart?!

I colored Tilda with some Copics and some distress inks, and glitterated her with Stickles diamond dust--it gave a sun-shiny yellow glow to her halo, some of the yellow flowers and to the edges of the golden scalloped oval. Her socks and dress have Stardust Stickles.

I tried to give you a close up to see some of the
details a little better.
The sentiment came from a set by Stamp Camp.

Thanks for stopping by.
It means so much to read your comments.

Hi Pam...love the bling!! This is just a darling little Tilda...she looks so innocent, but underneath I think she's a little bit of a troublemaker!! Your coloring is lovely and your DPs and flowers are perfect! Pat Frank
