April 13, 2010 Firsts- Springtime Tilda
Hi everyone, happy Tuesday. It's nice and sunny here in MA. Took Curtiss golfing yesterday evening, first round of the season. It was nice to just take in the fresh air, and enjoy my son's company. I know it won't be long until it's "Uncool to hang out with mom. It took a little bit but here's my first card using a Magnolia stamp. I'm so excited! I think I will send her out to spread some cheer this weekend as it is supposed to rain.
I figured out how to use the Spellbinders dies in the Revolution machine as I have long been a QuicKutz and Cricuit girl. I just love the Nestabilities though. They are easy to organize and store. (Back to that organization thing again). I really need more hours in a day! "Just to play" of course. My goal with summer coming will be to complete one card and on scrapbook layout per week until school starts again in the fall. I know that without goals and timelines, I get very little done.
Another first about this card is that I actually broke down and used my bowdabra for the first time! I can't believe all the peripherals that have accumulated over the years! I don't think I would ever withstand a move with all this stuff! I guess it could be worse, it could be shoes :)
I lined the inside of the card with DP from Basic Grey from the Sugar rush collection. Everyone will soon see just how crazy I am for Basic Grey paper! The new Tim Holtz line is my runner up. Love it, love it, love it! Hope you have a wonderful start to your spring. With the flowers come the birds, butterflies and barbeques! Bring em' on ski season is over!
The Copic color combination used for the dress: B28, B26, B24, and B21. I also used RV17 for airbrushed edges, Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV21. Waterfall stickles, Prima flowers, The Robin's Nest Dots and Recollections Pearl stickers. Cardstock: Bazzill and DP: Basic Grey
