You warm my heart!

Hello! After saying I would be posting the Magnolia-licious Sketch project today I wasn't so sure! But, it's still Monday here so I made it! Maybe you've already seen Suzanne's group post containing some fab cards by my fellow designers. Here's the LINK to her post for all the details.



Basically, that crazy Barb challenge us (and YOU!) to make a shaker card! I remember making shaker cards YEARS ago! You had to buy foam board to put between your acetate and card stock! I always got glue right on my acetate and that foam board was miserable to cut!
Well, now there are these cool little shaker pieces you can buy! They are three dimensional and self adhering! Oh, boy, was I glad! I bought 10 in a package at my LSS for a few dollars. I knew I wanted something small and the circles were sold out. Once I had them home I was glad to have the squares! I decided it would make the perfect ICE CUBE for Tilda to sit on! I also got some Martha Stewart Glitter 'chunks' to put in the shaker piece. Luckily for the ice idea I bought aqua! Serendipity!

I only wished I had used some glitter in the background. I did stamp it with snowflakes so it wouldn't be stark. My paper is from Fancy Pants-Arctic Chill by jackie eckles. Tilda is colored with the following copics.
E000, E11, E00, R30, BG10, BG72.
R81, R83 and R85 for the top, but there is also some R11 in her top to give it a little different shade. Browns are E31, 35, 25 and 29.
I have Stardust stickles here and there and spica pen on her bootlaces.
Tilda is called Cozy Tilda (#3020) in Diana's store. Cute, cute, cute!
Well, I hope you've enjoyed reading about my card and that you will consider making a shaker card of your own to enter!
I would like to send someone a few of these square shakers as well as a Tilda stamp and maybe a little paper! Please comment by Thursday evening, November 4 if you would like the chance to win. I will ship anywhere. You have all month on the challenge so you would get them in time to use!
Have a great evening and day tomorrow! Thanks for visiting!
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, tooo cute! I love how you have Tilda sitting on the ice cube, and the sentiment is so precious. Such lovely papers and colors. Looking carefully: Tilda would make a perfect Carnival Queen in Quebec, we have this big winter carnival with a big snowman as mascot called Bonhomme and all his princess, one of which becomes queen... Hugs. Danielle.

Beautiful card Cheryl. I love the idea of Tilda sitting on an ice cube. I don't think that it needs the glitter that you feel is missing. It is perfect as is.
