Starting the New Year with the Mini Tildas

Hope everyone has a Happy & healthy New Year !!!
Just wanted to post a quick card I made awhile back to show the difference in the size of the regular & new little mini’s … 
I’ve used both the regular & mini Tilda as Christmas Angel stamp & the mini Star Tilda on these projects. Tomorrow I’ll take a couple more pictures of the little ones & post them on here …

P1010956

When I 1st got the mini’s, I opened the package & seriously was disappointed … They were MUCH smaller than I thought they’d be … But then I stamped one & couldn’t believe that there is every bit of detail in the mini’s as the larger stamps just a whole lot less to color … I colored one up & “fell in love” … They are ADORABLE in every way … They fit perfectly on the little Doohickey tags & the small nested shapes & make wonderful gift tags & small note cards. Now I can use all those spools of thin ribbon & small embellishments that seemed to tiny to put on larger cards…... They are small enough to be grouped together or used with other background stamps. You will be seeing these little cuties pop up on everything & Diana over at Magnolia-licious is the only place carrying them right now. She’s so sweet to talk to on the phone or by e-mail & one day I’d love to meet her in person.

I'm entering this just for fun in these challenges

Make it Monday


I’d like to take this time to thank my husband for his patience & support in always indulging me in this crazy addiction … He spends a lot of time home alone while I’m off working to support my “habit” & never complains… Also want to thank my daughters for always being there to help me with problems I had getting my blog started … Without them I’d never have been brave enough to give this a try. You always give me faith & confidence to be the best that I can be & gave me the courage to post my cards when I didn’t think they were good enough to share. I was blessed to have the best daughters ever  !!!
Last of all I wish to thank each & every one of my wonderful followers who make such lavish comments on things I do & make me glad I started my blog. I’ve met some of the most amazing ladies that I now call friends (you know who you are) & I appreciate all the kind words & help you’ve given me throughout these last 7 months. It’s nice to know you’re only a click away.
Happy New Year & may this year be even better than last …
Hugs, Janie

  10. Hi Janie,
    Happy New Year to you and all your family.
    These little Tildas look so cute next to the big ones. I've got some mini hanglars that came in a set with their bigger stamps.
    Isn't blogging a wonderful way to meet new people and make new friends? I know crafters from so many different countries, all brought together thru blogging.
    Thank you for the lovely comment you left me today, such a sweet comment and so kind of you.

    Take care
    Love Elaine xx
