Lost for words...

Hi everyone! Happy "Good Thursday" as I like to call it!  Even though Easter is a little later this year, it still jumped up and surprised me. I raced down to the supermarket this morning to find half the suburb had already beat me to it :)

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is.... No Text!! ohhh... I can see you all thinking easy peasy can't I? hahaha - well, I am sentimentally challenged - I don't use them if I can get away with it ;) So I thought it was going to be simple... but I tell you... the temptation to add a tag with a cute little sentiment to my project was very strong!
My project is a little bag. It has adorable Tilda on the front masked with the Tulip Walkway. I first one of these cute little bags at Rimna's Skafferi and I had to have a go myself. There is a tutorial, it can be found here with a really nice vintage example.

And when opened up this is the inside of the bag... The puppy is "Magnolia", obviously, by Magnolia Stamps, lol, who happens to be a real dog (Caviller King Charles Spaniel I think). I've coloured her to look like my dog, Tara who passed away last year :( 

I love that she is standing in the garden with a butterfly. I have a photo of my Tara standing in my parents garden when she was a puppy. So this stamp was one of those "had to haves".

Happy Easter to you all,

Kylie, Beautiful little Easter Bag, the images are so sweet and coloured perfectly as always and your flowers are super, I need to make some, these dies I had to have but have not used them as so many other goodies I buy, but you have inspired me once again, gorgeous girl. Your little Tara is adorable, what a wonderful photo. I hope the Easter Bunny is good to you and your boys. Happy Easter hugs Jodie from Oz
