I WISH outside looked like this...

Ever WISH you could be Tilda?
Think of the places she gets to go, hang out at, sit upon,
and the activities she is privileged to do throughout blog land.
As an illustrator I have been asking myself "W.C.T.G.?"
-Where Can Tilda Go???
And drawing the answers!
I thought she might like to go sip Lemonade- (color delegated)
on a cushioned swing at the end of wood slat porch.
It looks SO inviting (especially compared to the snow drifts surrounding my house at the moment that are taller than my children!)
Miss Michelle, owner of The Pixie Cottage, is taking orders
(below you'll find several NEW ARTishtic Scenery Stamps AND an opportunity to WIN one)
Available Now to PRE-Order:
Our Challenge for you is to create with this sketch
AND/OR use Buttons!

Link back your NEW Creation to The Pixie Cottage

for a chance to win Pixie Cottage Stamps!

I used both the sketch and buttons

and was inspired by this color photo from: Colour Create

to create this....

(my very first Tilda card)...

She is swinging into the following challenges as well:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers Glitter Tilda
Just Magnolia Dots And Spots—all the buttons and their holes!
Basic Grey Flower Power
Paper Take Weekly Anything + Flowers
Tuesday Throwdown Stitching
Fun at Fairy Knoll Flowers
Totally Gorjuss As You like it
Scrap Creations Friendship
Totally Stampalicious No Special reason

My take on replicating the floral print of the cushion with buttons...

So refreshing...

How many day's 'til summer?

I have been busy drawing very versatile stamps...
For all you fans of Tilda and other "people" stamps, you will find these stamps will work great for backgrounds. In addition, they are also detailed and nice enough to use as stand alone stamps for those of you who do not use "people" stamps.
The following stamps are red rubber cling foam-backed. They are available for pre-sale presently. Expected to ship towards the end of February. You will find that these stamps are very large, thus would work well on scrapbook pages .






Michelle asks, "How would you like a chance to win one of these stamps?
Leave me a comment and tell me which one you would pick, and copy and paste a the picture of it on your blog with a link back to this post.
We will announce two winners sometime soon after the end of February.
And be on the watch from some new digitals coming soon.

( we aim to serve!)
