Sweet Tilda with Balloon (mini!)

Hello and Happy Friday!! One more day to work and next week off! Can't wait! I kept looking at this card and trying to decide what else it 'needed' and I finally decided on nothing! I think sometimes less is more. I wanted the focus on the image and on my spellbinder's label so I quit and took my photos! I hope you like what I've done. This is #294 TILDA WITH BALLOON in mini form. This is one of my favorite stamps from my favorite collection, You Are So Special. Diana has a new Store Credit program that you won't want to miss out on! Please remember that you have a few more days to get your entries in for the Magnolia-lcious Easter/Spring Extravaganza contest! And there's a category for Minis and a combo of mini and full size has been added! I have to track down my colors on this image, but will edit and add them when I do! Promise~!

In the meantime, for those who wondered the Sizzix embossing folder on the last two posts comes in a set of two and is called Country and Flowering Foliage Set. I got mine at Buffalo Stamps and stuff so I don't have an online source.


Well, I must get to work! Have a wonderful day!
