Just sitting here thinking of you ....

Happy Monday everyone!
The quiet in my house is deafening - yes, you guessed it, my boys have gone back to school! I vowed to leave my housework until tomorrow so I could just sit back and enjoy my little guy and some peaceful crafting time today! And this I did.
My new Magnolia Fall kit arrived in the mail at the end of last week and I just adore the new Tilda and Edwin images. This I think has to be one of my new favourites! I don't usually colour in Tilda as a blonde but for some reason this image screamed 'blonde' at me!! I also pulled out my oranges which again is not a first colour choice but I loved the end result. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that some of my new copic colours are orange!!
So onto the card. I've used the fabulous sketch from Claudia this week over at Friday Sketchers. I pulled out my gorgeous MME papers which I painfully cut into, lol! I used the recipe over at the Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog - 1 flower, 2 ribbons, 3 brads and 4 papers. Tilda is sitting on my new nesties labels 8 which is very much like the SU! Top Note die cut.
Thanks for stopping over at my blog today and taking the time to look and leave a comment. As always, your comments are so much appreciated! I hope you all are having a wonderful day!
