Midweek Magnolias - Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Wednesday, Friends! We have a new challenge ready for you at Midweek Magnolias and this time our theme is...

Thanksgiving or Giving Thanks!

If you join in with the theme and follow our ROOLZ, you could have a chance to win a Mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden.


I decided to make a Thanksgiving card that features “Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms” from the 2012 Turning Leaves collection. She is colored in Copics with a machine stitched edge around her frame. The card shape is a Go Kreate XXL die. I cut two sizes and then used the inside of the die to cut my designer paper.


I added some Tilda Tags, lace, jute twine and mesh with distressing and stitching to create a vintage design.


Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

Cathy, Your card really does inspires me, you did a fantastic job with the background colors. Love all the views!!!! Not sure if I missed it but love to know what kind of white pen, ink you used? Love the shape of the card. You did a lot of work on this one with these extra touches, love the beads, sewing,charms... The more I look I see more and more of your details, this is so stunning. I think I have lost the last month of my life. I do hope things have been fine with you. Being in Austin Texas for 3 weeks and them coming home and getting pneumonia and being laid up with that for another month. I was keeping all the posting and was becoming overwhelmed with all the beautiful posting and I was in no way going to get through them. So I decided to start fresh.
Hugs, Pat
