Hello Ladies!
 I hope you are enjoying your weekend and have lots of crafting planned.
I had planned to post this yesterday, but somehow never managed to get around to it...I got carried away, reading everyone else's blogs.
This card was made using Wild Orchid Challenges'* Sketch.
This cute little girl was a free digi, that I can't seem to find the source for.  She is colored with Copics.  The Ticket is also a free digi.   The DP is from My Minds Eye.  The bow is regular ol' seam binding.
Other challenges;
The Shabby Tea Room #49 Keeping Warm *
The Pink Elephant Challenge Be my Valentine 2/21
Copic Creations Warm colors *
Ooh-la-la-CreationsFor Someone Special *
Totally Papercrafts Do It With Digis
Thank you so much for stopping by!

And I have fallen in love with Tilda!
There is something about Tilda that makes her so endearing.  

Maybe it's her "doll like" appearance.  I did LOVE dolls, while growing up...A doll was always top on my Christmas list.  Now that I think of it, Tilda Stamps were top on this years Christmas list also!
Here Tilda sits atop only a ribbon, signifying that she's ready to "FALL" in love.
I made this card for the

I've found that one of the really nice benefits of having a blog with the cards you make, is that it forces you to "rediscover" some of the stamps you may not have used for years.  That is the case with this cute little "Honey Bear" from Penny Black, and especially true with The Bow Stamp from Rubber Stampede.  The "Sweet" ticket is a digi.
The Challenges that fit this card are;
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Show Some Love*
Penny Black @ Allsorts Monthly Challenge: * Say it With Flowers
Paperplay Challenges: Stamp It Out*
Wild Orchid Challenge: #16 Love Is...("sweet")*
Paper Sundaes #54 Valentines*
Stamp Something; Feb. Digi Day (Sweet Ticket)*
Stampin For The Weekend; St. Valentines' Day*

There's nothing like "a touch of Spring" to cure the Winter Time Blues!
This little card says Spring to me.
This Digi girl is from one of my favorite Digital Stamp Companies,
Are you old enough to remember "Tiddly Winks"?
 ...A fun little game with little round chips.  In honor of  "Tiddly (w)Inks", I've make this card round.

I am sumitting this to the Tiddly Inks Blog Challenge
