Tilda Needs A New Home!

I'm so lucky to have good friends that share their things with me. Tilda and the window image came from a friend some time ago. I tried to get someone else to share a few of the Tilda images but it seems like no one had her that I asked over at SCS, so I did the next best thing. I made copies on my computer! I scanned her in and printed her out on card stock! A funny thing happened to the images. They got a tiny bit smaller when I printed them off! That was OK by me because sometimes the Magnolia images are a little "too" big. I like a nice large image to color, but sometimes they were a bit "too" big! I saw this lay out on a blog yesterday. Please don't ask where because it was one that I leaped from blog to blog and ran across. If the lay out is yours, I'm sorry I don't know your name, but thank you for such a great idea! I used some of my new Basic Grey papers and bit of green gingham that I've had in my stash for years! I wish I could get a really good picture of all the glittery goodness of this card, but you'll have to just take my word!
I think today is shower day. I've been so lazy for the last few days that I haven't even gotten dressed that today I have to make it a real part of my plan! I need to go to the store. I'm out of coffee and more importantly, I'm out of mailing envelopes to send out the few cards that I have sold in my ebay store! I keep trying to figure out what's wrong with my work. I really am at a loss as to why they aren't flying off the shelves. I've lowered the price of the cards and I'm having to make more and more just to make a small amount. I have dozens of cards listed in my store. Two weeks until Thanksgiving and not alot of money coming in. I hope this isn't a sign of the whole season. I know we're not going to be spending anything this year on gifts for the holidays, but I was hoping to be able to buy food at least! Are you worrying about how to pay for the holiday's this year? Have you planned on cutting back?
On a much brighter note, I spoke with Madelyn last night. She is so cute at 6. What a blessing Grandchildren are! She called to speak with Grandpa, but he was out at a meeting, so she was left with me. They are celebrating Veteran's Day at school today and she needed to know when Barry was in the Army and what branch. She sounded so sad when I told her he wasn't home, but I could help her instead. She really wanted to talk to Barry, but I had to do!
Well, I'm off to the shower and then so coffee somewhere. Have a fun day and Hurry back!
