Wishing You Sunny Days

Hello there, readers! :)

I am wishing you all sunny days!! We have had a pretty wet summer here in Pennsylvania, and now it is getting hot and muggy . . . ohh boy, but ya know before we know it the leaves will be changing and it will get cooler. So, I am not complaining really. When I saw this Tilda Animal Keeper stamp, I knew I just had to save one of them for myself!! This Tilda reminds me SO much of my mom when she is doing chores with her rake and bucket or water/feed. On second thought, maybe I should have stamped a few alpacas in the background to make her look more like Mom. :)

The card stock was run through the tiny mosaic folder to make it look more rugged and then layered on dp with vines and flowers from the Junebug collection. The tag is also from the Junebug "Do Me a Favor" kit. The image and layers were either trimmed to incorporate rounded corners or punched out with Label One dies to keep the same uniformity. Tilda was also colored with Copics, Sakura sparkly gel pen and a Signo white gel pen for highlights.

This Tilda card is on its way to my mom to send her a little happy mail. The sentiment says "Wishing you sunny days . . ." and the inside says "and smaller bean piles." LOL I think she will get a chuckle out of this, I know I did. I just hope she doesn't see this post before she gets it and spoils the fun.

Thanks for stopping by,
