I decided to go with some paper piecing on my Tilda this week - I found one of my older Tildas.. just love her party dress with that full slip showing. I stamped her out three times. One on Papertrey Ink Natural paper, then once on a piece of bright white card stock, then a third time on the DCWV La Creme pattern paper. I cut out the dress and the hair band from the pattern, and the collar and the slip from the bright white. I colored everything else on the Natural paper with my Copics. Then I played paper dolls and dressed my Tilda with the "clothes" I had cut out.
For the card my base is Bazzil Dotted Swiss, the from the DCWV La Creme stack I pulled out three pattens and followed the sketch. OH and this paper... has flocked papers, so those flowers are fuzzy soft. I sewed down the pieces with my sewing machine and black thread. I used a mulberry rose, and Martha Steward frond punch for the flower on the corner.
I hope you will pop over and see the other DT cards from Just Magnolias and play along with us.
Sorry I am a bit out of sorts - I have been very worried and out with the donkeys most of the day. I need some prayers from you again. You really did help me with Rosie when she was sick. Now is scarier though. Cheyenne is VERY sick, and it has hit her suddenly. She is one of my new Mom's.. Sergio's Mom. She stopped eating and drinking - the vet has come out and we are giving her everything we can. She has pneumonia. Stress pneumonia is what Doc is calling it, from the birth, the heat and such dry conditions during her birthing. He doesn't give us really any hope of her surviving. I don't want to loose her, she has been a part of our family for over 6 years. And I don't want Sergio to loose his Mom... only a week old and she isn't producing enough milk for him - so we are trying to bottle feed him. He doesn't like it. So I am asking for you help... prayers - I am trying hard to believe we can save her and she will make it through this, despite the Doc saying her prognosis is grave. Thanks..
EDITED: I wrote my post in the middle of the night. Cheyenne passed away shortly after. Now we need your prayers that her baby will take to the bottle and I can keep him healthy and alive.
