Memories

Stamps: Magnolia Sweden (Traveler Tilda and luggage), some DP, Prima flowers lace and big brads can be purchased here

Gosh ladies.. you are so nice to me!! 41!!! comments on my card yesterday??? I can not believe it!! This makes me really happy, that you liked the card. I was barely online the last couple of days, cause the boys have a bad summer cold. My little one takes this always a bit harder than my older son. I have had barely sleep cause they wake up at night and cry. Most of you know how this is.
This card is one of the 8 cards i sent to Sweden. I used a piece of scrap paper (the one with the little roses) I had from a previous card and two Designer Papers (the flower and the script DP) recieved from Magnolia. I had a bit trouble to pick up the wonderful greens from the paper with my Copics but I think it is fine. In the USA i have not found ANY source yet were i can buy such beautiful lace ribbons Magnolia sents me - so i keep every tiny little piece of snip of it :-) I think the solution to use two pieces and in the middle the flower is not too obvious? The circular "Memories" stamp was found at Michaels in a acryl "Travel"themed stamp set (set i think of 10 or so) on clearance for 4.99 :-) If you liked that "Berry" label i used on my "Berry Cute" card the other day, you should go and pick some up. Michaels has discontinued these cause now all the Halloween items are on the shelfes and i had to go to two other stores to find 2 more packages. :-) I used this "Traveler Tilda" set to make this "vintage" style card but she looks so cute in a more contemporary style too - I would like to show you this version tomorrow. I hope it is okay if i show two days in a row a card using the same image??

remember tomorrow i will also pick 5 winners for some Magnolia stamps, DP prima flowers ect.

Deine Karte ist entzückend. Die Tilda ist aber auch knuffelig, wie sie da so auf ihren Koffern hockt *schwärm*.

Oh Claudia I love this card!! The papers are gorgeous and tell me about it ~ I look for lace all the time and can't find any!!
You could show a card everyday of the week with the same image and it would be beautiful just the same!! (I hope your boys are feeling better!! ) :)Kathy

Die Karte ist wieder wundervoll geworden! Ich liebe dieses Motiv und kann gar nicht erwarten, es zu haben ;) Von mir aus kannst Du noch mehr Karten damit zeigen ;)

Deb said...

Absolutely beautiful, the papers are so pretty and I love the text behind Tilda. That lace is very pretty and I wouldn't have noticed until you pointed out the the gap, it looks great though.

Hope the boys are getting better and you manage to get some more sleep. My daughter has had this cold too and she has been up some nights, very tiring!

Cheryl Richter said...

Wow Claudia, this one is so lovely again! The colours are great and I love the ribbon you used!
Thansk also for your comment on my blog :)

Hugs Cheryl x

I love this card. What a great stamp but what Magnolia stamps aren`t. I love the lace and if you hadn`t told us no one would have know it was not complete. Looking forward to tomorrow`s version.

craftyb said...

Hey Claudia...this is so so pretty! I love "vintagy" looks...(don't think that is a proper word but you know what I mean!!!)

If its your blog you get to show us what you choose....I think I made 5 different cards with the same image...it was of course my FIRST Tilda stamp and I LOVED her so much! Haven't gotten back to her yet though...maybe cos I have so many others to play with!! bx

yvon said...

Again a beautiful card, i love the backgroundpapers and it just proves that you've got to keep every scrap of paper that you've got.
I hope that you will have a peaceful night.

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Oh another wonderful design! I love the postmark as well!! Fantastic job! So funny, as I was playing with these stamps yesterday too!! Heehee!
