Lost for words...

Hi everyone! Happy "Good Thursday" as I like to call it!  Even though Easter is a little later this year, it still jumped up and surprised me. I raced down to the supermarket this morning to find half the suburb had already beat me to it :)

My project today is a bit of a special one. It is my first DT project for Cute Card Thursday! I was so surprised when Deb emailed me to see if I wanted to be a part of their team, but as much as I wanted to jump  up and down and say yes I had to have a bit of a think to see if I could devote the time to the Team. Recently I had left two DT's very special to me due to workload, so making a decision to join another was a bit tough :)  I am thrilled to be a part of the Cute Card Thursday family however, so it is definitely the right decision.

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is.... No Text!! ohhh... I can see you all thinking easy peasy can't I? hahaha - well, I am sentimentally challenged - I don't use them if I can get away with it ;) So I thought it was going to be simple... but I tell you... the temptation to add a tag with a cute little sentiment to my project was very strong! Restist the urge! It is worth it! As the prize this week up for grabs is from Pink Cat Studio - nice hey?

My project is a little bag. It has adorable Tilda on the front masked with the Tulip Walkway. I first one of these cute little bags at Rimna's Skafferi and I had to have a go myself. There is a tutorial, it can be found here with a really nice vintage example.

And when opened up this is the inside of the bag... The puppy is "Magnolia", obviously, by Magnolia Stamps, lol, who happens to be a real dog (Caviller King Charles Spaniel I think). I've coloured her to look like my dog, Tara who passed away last year :( 

I love that she is standing in the garden with a butterfly. I have a photo of my Tara standing in my parents garden when she was a puppy. So this stamp was one of those "had to haves".

 

The papers are MME Good Day Sunshine. All images are coloured with Copics.

If you would like details of the Magnolia stamps and dies used on my bag, please check out my Magnolia blog HERE.

Well, thanks so much for visiting me today! And sorry for the long post :)
Happy Easter to you all,
Hugs Kylie xx
