Tilda spreads Thanks

Yayayay!! It is Friday! So... what does everyone have planned for the weekend? I have my fingers crossed for a lot of craft time, yes, like most weekends, but also hoping for dry weather so we can get a lot more gardening done as well. We have had an unusually wet summer so the garden has just been alive with weeds. The joys of having a large garden I suppose! So with a little bit of luck we should get ahead of them this weekend.

On a bit more of a fun note, there are two big blog hops happening this weekend... so keep your eyes peeled... there are lots of prizes to be won!

This card I am sharing with you today is actually one I began for last weekend's Magnolia Down Under Challenge "Anything but a square" but it just wasn't working for me in time so I made a different card instead. I finally got it finished though this week and can show it to you now. I don't like unfinished cards sitting around on my desk :)  If you still want to enter the challenge, you have until 8am tomorrrow morning... so about 12 hours to go!

This is "Tilda Spreads Love" from the You are So Special Collection. Oh my goodness - there were so many "must have" stamps from that collection. I do think I went a little bit overboard, but oh well.. it is fun to spoil yourself sometimes, haha.

I used my Cricut and the SCAL software to cut out the hearts for the heart shaped easel card. The papers are BG Olivia and there is a fair amount of stickles and rhinestones added to the card as well.  The "Thanks a bunch" senitment on the tag is by Whiff of Joy from their "General Sayings" set - I love this set :)

I would love to enter my card in these challenges:

So I'll see you back here for lots of fun over the weekend! Thanks for dropping in :)
Hugs xx

  8. Hi Kylie!
    Your card is just adorable. Your coloring, of course, is spot on. I love how you used the super large rose too. I have them but always feel like they would take over the card. You proved me wrong! I'll definitely give them a shot.
