Magnolia Down Under Challenge #14 - Moving to the Country

This week's challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is "Moving to the Country". My card isn't so much about moving there as being there. The lovely relaxed lifestyle, the pets and the wild birds! I also think this Tilda with her patched jeans and big spotty bow looks like a country girl - so natural and unaffected!

I found the swing seat stamp at the recent papercrafting show I was at - it came from HeavenScent Crafts and is perfect for Tilda to sit on. I love looking for companion stamps for my Magnolia's - have a couple more to show you in the coming weeks! Bec over at Bizzy Bec's has also gotten into the Tilda furniture mode and has designed some pieces she'll be releasing soon - check her blog out here for some sneak peeks!

And of course you have to go over to MDUC and see what the rest of the DT have done - before trying it out yourself!

LURVE the feel of this card Debbie. I purchased this very stamp last week and coloured her for the first time. She is so beautiful and has a feeling of whimsy abt her. I love the fact that u can change her 'mood' simply by her colour. May have to check out the chair too....LOL
