Cowgirl Tilda.......

Good morning everyone!

Well I'm back from my hols and just about surfacing from the washing mountain..... feels like we never went away now, lol!

My new Magnolia stamps arrived from Nikki's store whilst I was away so I was very eager to get one of them inked up.... and here is the result, meet Cowgirl Tilda. I had a search through my papers and found these yummy Kay&Co ones which have lovely, rich colours. I added some Prima flowers and made the lassos with some twine in my stash.

I'm entering my card into the latest Totally Papercrafts Challenge where the theme is 'At The Movies'. The movie I've chosen is one of Doris Day's finest I think, Calamity Jane.

Before I start my huge pile of ironing (groan) I thought I'd leave you with a couple of pics of a friend we made whilst we were away..... meet Sam the Seagull.

Seems he wasn't too keen on hanging around once he knew I was photographing him, lol!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Love your cowgirl Tilda, great colours and amazing details. Haven't got my summer Mags yet - again - will it be a repeat of last year - no show. Sam probably flew off coz he could see you pinching feathers for your next card.

Fab card Tara, glad you had a lovely holiday!

Annika said...

I missed you, girl!!! AND your gorgeous creations. Funny thing with Magnolia collections is that yet another time I looked at the stamps and wasn't overly taken, then I see what you have done with it and whoa - SO like the stamps suddenly! lol
I finally put together another card with one of the Tildas you sent me, using it for a brand new challenge starting tomorrow (fab prize, btw so it would be well worth a card, lol). Couple of images you sent I totally ruined, of course! :D
Big hugs, hope you are now all fresh and perky!
