Another Tilda . . . I'm having such fun!

Hello again!! I tell ya, I am having a blast making cards for fun!! This is another one that I just decided to make 'cuz I've been missing my sweet little Magnolia stamps!!
So . . . here's the deal . . . I couldn't figure out if this little Tilda has ears or not! It sorta looks a little like an ear . . . at least on her right side! Well . . . no matter . . . I just decided to give her TWO ears . . . what the heck! She'll thank me for it too if she ever has to wear glasses! LOL! Here's an extreme close-up of "Tilda with a Blue Blanket" (in this case, it would be an "aqua" blanket!) . . .

And a sort of "side view" . . .
Card Recipe:
Image stamped onto Cryogen cardstock
Very Vanilla & Pool Party cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: Webster's Pages
Pool Party seam binding: Stampin' Up
Lace & flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Romantic Rectangles & Lacy Square dies: Spellbinders
Corner die: Marianne's Designs
Inside tag & mini Tilda stamp: Magnolia
Pearls: My stash
Copics & Various colored pencils

A peek at the inside . . .
And, of course, being the creature of habit that I am . . .
 I thought I'd enter this card into a couple of challenges . . .  
Gotta run! My hubby thinks I need to get some exercise . . . so we're going for a walk! Fortunately the weather is quite nice today! hehe! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Thanks (in advance) for all your sweet comments! Hugs . . .

Aww!! How cute is Tilda, Don't know how she could manage without two ears Pat, after all you need one to hear what you want to, and one to turn off what you don't :O
Love your papers and detail. That Anja? corner is gorgeous.
Glad to be internet went down last week and I have been so lonesome :(
Huge Hugs Mau xx
Hope you enjoyed your walk, We go walking every day and love it :)

You've created a further gorgeous «just for fun card», Pat! I really like the layout and how you've colored this sweet Tilda. Love to read your funny post and it's so right to give her two ears, so she can hear our laughs and how much we like your card :o)

Loving your fun you have me in the mood to stop kniiting and make more cards..and I'm almost done with the shawl and the sweater... See what you did.. Ok off to the craft table your inspiration is just overwhelming.

Love every inch of this beauty, but I think she has two ears otherwise how did she hear us yapping the other
