Another of my niece's has an October birthday. . .this time late in the month. Sara has bought her first home and has a lovely garden every year. My guess is she probably has some very large pumpkins in her garden right now. Last year she should have entered the Guiness Book of Records because I think she would have won for the strangest looking and strangest shaped pumpkin grown. She managed a hybrid between a green squash and a pumpkin somehow without even trying! With this in mind, I thought a visit from Ladybug Tilda would be just right. Tilda brings a large ladybug with her, which I have heard are good for gardens!
This card features a Magnolia stamp on its front and was one of the cards I made when I first started cardmaking back in 2010. I look back on it and think, "you know that wasn't too bad." I had never done any coloring before, and this class I took from my sister, Heidi Gonzales (My Lil' Scrap Corner) taught woodless-colored pencil coloring using mineral spirits to set the color. It was a fun way to color images for cards, but I have to say, I do prefer my Copic markers today! I hope Sara enjoys her Tilda with her Ladybug birthday card.
