Tilda is seeing STARS!!!

Happy Tuesday, m'darlin blogging buddies!! Can you believe it? ! Just 12 days 'til Christmas...and I haven't even started shopping for my sweet hubby yet! I have, however, given him a long list of things that I absolutely need!!! hehehehe!! I know...I'm so bad! I'd better watch it...or I'll end up with nothing but a stocking full of COAL! Uh oh!! I need to get some shopping done...but first things first...

This month we're having just one challenge over at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! And...guess who's our hostess with the mostess? Miz Diana Crick...owner of Magnolia-licious! Whoohoo! And Diana has given us this fabulous Inspiration Photo...of STARS! 

Pretty cool, huh?! Oh...and the trick will be for you all to see how many stars you can get on your project! hehehe! Soooooo...I'm always up for a new challenge...tell me...how did I do?

Isn't this Tilda such a cutie? She's called "Volleyball Tilda" and is currently available at Magnolia-licious HERE. I stamped Tilda with Memento Rich Cocoa for a slightly softer look! Here's a side view...

I decided that I'd give this card to our almost-13-year-old granddaughter, Emma. She plays volleyball...and is soooooooo good at it!! She's my little Super Star!!
