Dancin' Tilda . . . Just for FUN!

Happy Saturday, sweet friends! Well, tomorrow is Mother's Day here in my little corner of the world, so let me be the first to say "Happy Mother's Day" to you all! I'll be spending the day in my studio . . . wheet whoo! That's my favorite way to spend just about any day!! So, speaking of my studio . . . I've been busy cleaning and organizing . . . and it will be done soon. So, keep your eyes peeled for photos! Wait 'til you see my new Martha Stewart Craft Armoire! I am so spoiled, I know!

Oooops . . . I seem to have gotten off on a bit of a tangent . . . I nearly forgot the reason for today's post!! I have a new card to share with you! One I made just for fun!!!

This little darlin' is, of course, Tilda! I just love her curly, cropped hair! And I've always been a huge fan of the "brain squeezer" .. . . I wish they'd thought of these when my daughter was a baby (39 years ago)! I used to tape bows to her bald little head! hehehe! But, I digress . I decided to make a twisted easel card today! They are such fun to make . . . and to receive!

My Card "Recipe"
Very Vanilla Cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: Butterfly collection by Pink Paislee
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Martha Stewart punches
Large metal corner & flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Small metal corner: My friend Paola from South Africa (thanks girlfriend!)
Sentiment, pearls, cheesecloth, & feather: My stash
Very Vanilla Seam Binding: Stampin' Up
Frosted Lace Stickles

Here's a bit of an angled view . . .

I've decided to enter this cutie into the following challenges:
Magnolia-Licious: Pink, Green, & Ecru
CLP #47: Sketch
Bunny Zoe's Monthly Challenge #23: Ribbon or Twine (does seam binding count as ribbon?)
Simply Magnolia: A card but not a square (mine is a twisted easel . . . hope it counts!)
Totally Gorjuss #131: Pink & Green 

And that's it for me . . . just a quick little post! Thank you so much for stopping by . . . and for taking time to leave me such sweet comments. Hugs . . . .
