Hope Your Day is Sweet!

Happy Friday.....again (2nd post for the day)! Hope everyone had a nice day today! I am wiped out from lack of sleep last night (Tim McGraw concert) and another full day today. I am attempting to watch Avatar again with my daughter, but doubt I will finish it tonight - too tired! This will be my 2nd attempt, but I just get too tired to finish it - LOL! Guess I am old!

I have a new Tilda card to share with you. I made this Mother's Day card for my MIL.
I used Jam Tilda and Tin Boxes (looks like it's out of stock at the moment) that I purchased from Magnolia-licious. I pulled out some Basic Grey Stella Ruby DP along with some Ruby Red and Soft Suede card stock. I created the sentiment myself on my pc. I used a doily from Michael's and airbrushed it with some YG93 and added some stitching around the card.
Here is a close-up of Ms. Tilda. I colored the tin boxes and then cut them out. They are layered on top of each other rather than next to each other like the original stamp. I added a generous amount of Liquid Glass to the glass front of heart cookie container. Tilda was colored with Copics as well, cut out and layered on top of the box.
Here is a side view - you can see the dimension and lastly, here are the copics I used.

Thanks for stopping by twice today! I am hoping to post another card this weekend, but we will see. I have 3 soccer games to go to tomorrow as well as celebrating my daughter's 14th She has her final lacrosse game on Sunday too. Soccer and lacrosse are finally winding down - one more week for soccer - and then I will have much more free time to create! :)

If I do not post again this weekend, I want to wish all of the Mom's out there a Happy Mother's Day!! ~Tori
