Hello Friends!

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.  Are you ready for a new week?  I am so ready!! I am also kind of excited and nervous.  In eleven days, I am going on vacation with my daughter and a group of students and parents from her school.  We are going to Europe!!  It's my daughter's first visit to Europe. Can you image how excited I am to share this experience with her?  I cannot describe how I feel.  I promise I'll take a lot of pictures and I will share them with you, yay!!

And now, back to crafting.  I created today's card for the new Midweek Magnolia's Challenge Blog.  I used the sweet Tilda with a straw hat image and I coloured it with Copics.  The papers are from First Edition Summer Breeze 6 x6 Pad. The ribbon and flower are from my stash.  See below the list of Copics I used:

Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20
Hair: E25, E27, E31, E41
Dress: R0000, R00, R20
Hat and Shoes: E41, E42, E43. E44
Flower:YR00, YR12, G94, YG61, YG63
I outlined the image with W3 for a vintage look.

And here is my card:
