Anything Goes @ Diva's

Good Morning everyone, it's not my teams week to play but as I have been playing with my Magnolia stamps for no other reason than I wanted to I thought I'd join in today with the DT makes at


for the fabulicious theme of

Anything Goes

Here is my card, I said I was going to make more cards I wanted to and not that I have to,
 so I hope you like it! This is one of my favourite Tilda's EVER!
This is the yummy Tilda that caused all the fuss last year when she was only available very very limited. EVERYONE wanted her and she became priceless on Ebay, luckily Magnolia re issued her and that's when I got mine. Yes this is the first time she has seen the back of an inkpad!
The papers are Bo Bunny Snowfall from last Christmas too, the flowers are a mix of WOC and the Ribbon Girl.
Pop over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the Diva's.
Thanks for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Gorgeous card Laurie :-) Tilda is lovely and the papers and details are fab :-)

I heard about a Tilda selling for a fortune on ebay, I didn't know which one it was so thanks for the background info :-) I bet whoever bought her on ebay was a bit miffed when she was re released :-)

thanks for joining us on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

A beautiful colour combo Laurie & a lovely image. Didn't know this was the stamp that everyone wanted - but I can see why they did, she's lovely. It's nice to make cards we want rather than ones we have to - we should do it more often! Hope you're having a good week, Jx

Kathleen said...

This is stunningly beautiful, love it all.
Nice to make one just because and not feel under presure that is why I prefer monthly challenges really as they give you more time to play.
Hope you are enjoying your more relaxing time of year.
