Hello all! I finally had time to make a card and post it to my blog. Any and all cards that have been made over the past three months have been for family birthdays, made on the spur of the moment and then given to the recipient.

Finally, also relates to the end of busy season where I work. Roughly two more weeks to go until the end of tax season for us accountants. I have been working 10 hour days on the short end and weekends also. No playtime, bummer!!

But, I have been checking out blogs, and following posts at my Yahoo group, Magnolia-licious, and think that all the members works are fabulous.

I also have been somewhat of a naughty girl, and did a little purchasing over the last three months, and I had to make a card with one of the Tilda Magnolia stamps that I got at Diana's store. I believe that the name of the stamp is "Hello! Tilda". I do not see it in the store at the current time, but Diana is fabulous with regards to orders, and I am sure if you ask, she can get it for you. I know it is close to Easter, but oh well, it is a spring card also.

I do have to admit that I totally cased the layout from Cheryl's blog, but I did make it into an easel card. Thank you Cheryl for being such an inspiration to me. I love visiting your blog.

The image was colored with my Copics, and then cut out with my new Nesties. All the punches used are Martha Stewart punches, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I do feel better now, knowing that I did get to use one of the Easter/Spring stamps that I ordered.

Any and all comments are appreciated!

She is so adorable, Deb, and you're absolutely right -- she can be for spring as well as Easter. No sense in them gathering dust to come out only once a year for a short time - lol. Love the whole layout and embellishments - wonderful coloring, as you always do!
Hugs, Lillian
