Sending you a Big Hug (card for Kate)!!...and.."the Little Stamp Shop"

I made this card for a little girl named Kate....who has a very serious brain tumour. You can read more about it right here Cards for Kate. I found out about this through the very talented Curt at Curt's World....you can see his Gorgeous card for her right here.

I recieved this Sweet little Magnolia from Heidi the owner of "the Little Stamp Shoppe" and it's called Tilda with Kitten..... part of the Magnolia Pet Collection. I also used the ML08 Swing from the Magnolia and Lilac Summer Collection 2008. The sentiment I've used is part of a stamp set I won over a year ago....and is created by Aud...(I love these stamps!!)

Be sure to check out "theLittle Stamp Shoppe" and "the little stamp shoppe blog". Heidi is expecting a new shipment of stamps any day...including more of the Fabulous Halloween stamps from last year. My time as Guest DT has come to an end... It's been fun!. You will still be hearing a Little Stamp Shoppe news from me here and there. It's a great place to shop and Heidi jsut keeps adding Fabulous new stock!!!

The Sketch I've used for this card is from the Sketch Challenge I am running on my Magnolia blog right now...You can read more about it here at Sweet Magnolias.

On to the card....I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda is raised on foam pop ups. I stamped and colored the little kitties head separately and used a pop up to attach it. The sentiment is popped up as well. I only used part of the Magnolia swing...and added little brads and bows to the top of the ropes.

Ink - memento, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - Georgia pacific, k&c wild raspberry, SU CS. Accessories -nesties, felt, flowers, button, embroidery floss, raffia lace, brads, stitching, glitter and shimmerz.

That's it for today....I'm hoping to get another card up soon...but we are going out of town for the weekend...so it's a little iffy. We've only been back from holidays for a weeek..and I have so many things on the burner right now....cards included...lol.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone!!...and Thank you so much for your Lovely comments!!
