Iam very excited that Diana Crick from Magnolia-licous and Scor-Pal Products is sponsoring us this week over on the Friday Sketcher blog. With Magnolia stamps from the "Paper-Doll Collection" and some Basic Grey Magnets so you can dress your Tilda the way you like. Diana came up with this fun idea. How fun to craft a little take-along toy for a girl.

For the sketch for i created this week. I was very inspired to come up with a card / sketch to use with the stamps i got from Diana Crick ( Please feel free to add your focal point picture or your sentiment were ever you wish. We are curious what you will come up with, dont forget to link your card on the Friday Sketcher blog. If you are there.. dont forget to check out the other "Sassy Sketchers" creations for this week.

My friend Bernie left a comment on yestedays card about cutting out the cattails. :-) No, they are not THAT much fun to cut out but if you have the right tool it is possible with a decent amount of time and effort.
I was lucky that Michelle told me about it and actually sent me one of these wonderful knifes. I use it ALL the time! Michelle is not only DT member for stamp companies and challenge blogs! She is also in the Fiskars Nifty Fifty! If you do not have this tool.. you defenetly need it :-) I have seen at Target for about 6 Dollars.

Here is a pic the sketch:
I was yesterday awarded by wonderful ladies! Iam grateful that i have met all of you! Check out sweet Shawn's blog, Madge and also Lisa's blog and work! Thank you!
