It's Saturday & Tilda is lookin good!

Wow this week has gone fast and I got only two cards made all week.
this one is a Magnolia that I colored with Copic's then cut out to mount on dimensionals. The background paper is a kleenex box and I love the print on it. All the other cardstock is SU with a small piece I ran through the Big Shot. My ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin and the brad is one of the new SU fabric colored brads (they are so pretty I just might have to break down and buy them). I usually do the DSP, button and ribbon sample packs that way I get to see everything new close up.
So I sure hope I get craftin time this weekend! You all have a great weekend and get crafting!
Personal Journey: This week has flown by! The windows were totally finished Monday I made a coursage & boutonniere , Tuesday I met Joanne, Wednesday I visited Mom, ran errands and helped Miss Lindsey design her own coursage & boutonniere in the evening. Thursday I didn't do much but laundry, cleaning and putting up some of the blinds that the guys took down while installing windows. They broke one set and the two in the kitchen I think have been there since inception, so I'm going to have to get some new ones this weekend and figure out how to put them up. Oh and I did my taxes finally! I owe for Federal and although I don't live in Arizona I still have to donate my money to them and file for it the following year. So I'll come out even with the board this year, although I don't understand why the little guys have to pay when all their lives they played by the rules and paid taxes and Mr. Corporation gets all the tax breaks. Hum something to ponder this weekend. Enjoy yourselves. Jeanine

Your card turned out cute and that is a great idea to use the kleenex box for the design paper. Love how you used the button with the sentiment.

Sounds like you were very busy all week. You got alot accomplished and sounds like you and your friend have hit it off good!
