Just Magnolia and Stampin for the weekend



I have made this card for the challenge over at Just Magnolia which this week is a fabulous sketch by Rach. I was going through my box of Tilda's I don't really have that many but I was thinking how they have changed over the past couple of years, this is one of the first ones I ever bought....I think we are inclined to forget our older stamps with so many new one coming out on what seems like a daily basis.
These colours also fits in with the Dusk to Dawn theme on the new Stampin for the weekend challenge.

image coloured with promarker
papers SU sentiment from CWC, flowers and charms form stash

Hope you are all having a good weekend and thank you for looking Sue :o)

Lovely card Sue those flowers are glorious, and love the wee star charm you've added. Your tilda looks very pretty, great job on the coloring. Yes we do tend to forget our older stamps don't we. I know I sure do, so busy collecting them, we use them only once or twice and that's it, we keep moving on. Love the three pearls at the top of the card too.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge. Good luck and we
hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great weekend.

Hiya Sue,

Hope your keeping well. Funny you should say that but I too have been going through lots of my old stamps, been having a good sort out of my lil room and I really should start using more of my old Magnolia's and Sugar Nellies, they have been so neglected.

Thank you for taking part in our brand new challenge Sue, your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love those SU papers they are really pretty, al the embellishments you have chosen are beautiful Sue. I hope you'll be able to join in with many more of our weekly challenges. Take care luvly, enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck xx vicki xx

Gorgeous card Sue, I love the colour combo,I know what you mean about the older stamps, it is such a shame to only use them a couple of times and then they are put away and forgotten about :)

Wonderful card Suzanne! I agree our older stamps sometimes feel so left out - I have been trying to pull out at least one a week and dust it off and ink it up - Hope you have a great weekend and a perfect Birthday!
