Farewell Tilda......Farewell Summer!

Happy September 1st! I cannot believe how fast this year is going by! It's going to be Christmas before you know it! This month over at Magnolia-licious Highlights our theme is chosen by the one and only Becca Feeken and she has chosen our theme to be "Bon Voyage" So you need to use a stamp from the adorable Bon Voyage Collection, and you need to either make a suitcase or backpack. Suzanne Dean has a great tutorial for the suitcase and you can find the backpack tutorial over on splitcoast.

This card is also for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge, Our theme over on the RRR blog is Flowers. I used my white ruffled ribbon to go around my rosebuds, it adds so much more to the flower and gives it a great vintage feel. Dont ya think?

If you haven't seen the new Autumn 2010 Collection you must drop everything you are doing and hurry and pre-order every single darling stamp!!! You will LOVE these..
