Princess Tilda

Here's a fun Princess Tilda. She's in her royal blue dress. I added a great sentiment today "One today is worth two tomorrows." I think many of us who have been through something like brain surgery, other life changing experience be them in our own life or with someone very close to use definitely get that.  You really come to a place where you can be very thankful for each day that you get.

Here's a fun question today...do you like Magnolia?   I clearly just LOVE them, I also love Gorjuss Girls and several other stamp lines that are well known as having their stamps done without a mouth on them or very little.  My husband however, will tell me, he doesn't like these images, he truly thinks they are very creepy without the mouth. What you do think?  big fan, not a fan or indifferent?

I look forward to hearing everyone's opinion on this.

As adorable as she is, I think I prefer for them to have at least the indication of a mouth. lol

Maybe it's because I never shut up?

they are a bit cute for me. So guess I'm not a fan of them.

I don't have any Magnolia stamps because I don't color well. But I do like them and enjoy seeing what others create with them.

Hi Holley
the card is super cute.
I like some of the images, but mostly I prefer faces with a mouth :D

Kaija said...

Oh Holley!
Just a splendid lovely card, I like the blue, secretes fits well and you have made the perfect card! In fact, just a long long time I made a Tilda card and I like indeed. They are a little bit funny with no mouth but otherwise pretty chubby :)
Hugs Kaija<3

The Magnolia image is cute, but I think I would at least like a tiny mouth on it.

Hi Holley she s adorable sorry haven t been around for a while xxx

grandmalee said...

I've always loved what you do with your Maggies, but I've never really caught the bug on them. You've introduced me to so many other stamps that are outside of what I thought I liked. I can't believe all of the Sweet Pea Stamps that I have thanks to your enabling. A lot of the dies that you use are also another item that I find myself buying as well as other embellishments. You have definately given me a reason to look into more storage options!

Glennis said...

Lovely card Holley, I don't have any Magnolia's - not sure whether I like them or not

Anonymous said...

I like them! But you could always buy stamps that would put a mouth on them for your hubby! lol

DJ said...

So cute!

so sweet - love magnolias

Lucie H said...

I love Tilda. Yours is so sweet.

cebelica said...

Lol, my sweetie would completely agree with your husband. He doesn't like Tilda either. I can't understand why not though. I think she's oh so cute! I like Magnolia images A LOT.
Your card is very beautiful. Tilda is adorable and I think the sentiment is great too.
Hugs! xx

Kathy said...

Cute card! I like many Maggies, but really prefer my people images to have mouths. I heard they don't have mouths because they started as angels who spoke to the heart. Now, though, they are definitely people. I added mouths to some of mine but then read on Mo Manning's site that adding a mouth is a violation of the copyright terms because it alters the image. I love the elf images from several years ago, but that series was not continued. (And they had mouths!)

Trish said...

Hi Holley,
Real cute card. I'm not a great lover of them, I'm on your Hubby's side! Lol.
Hugs,
Trish x

CraftyKay said...

So adorable!! I love, love Magnolias! : )

Fabulous creation Holley. I have mixed feelings on Magnola. Some I love others, not so much.

ionabunny said...

Great image and I love the sentiment. I quite like Magnolia. Got to admit I hadn't really noticed the absence of the mouth. I am really into the Julia Nutting Prima dolls and they don't have any features. Some people have commented that's they are spooky but I like them.

Cheryl said...

Now this is a sweet image! I either love Magnolis images or I don't care for them at all...all depends on the image.

rovianne said...

Love the card. I love Magnolia. Never really thought about the mouth missing. I just like the images a lot.

SHartl said...

Ha ha...for some reason I never even noticed the missing mouths on the Magnolia images...and I just love them!

Kate M said...

Fabulous princess Tilda, I must confess I do like images to have noses and mouths, so I don't own more than a couple Tilda stamps myself.
Great card.

Totally adorable :) xx

Vickie Kertz said...

So cute. Love the tilda images and have a few. I am not great at coloring them so am hesitant about using them.

Stempelientje Stempy said...

I agree with you husband....but have to say I do like the items they have, like the benchesmbottkes, trees etc, But can't say I am a fan.
By your card the coloring iscfabulousc again and like the background shape die cut.

Linda Wickwire said...

Tilda is so cute! Is that boo boo on her knee? Love that.

Hugs,
Linda

Susan T. said...

Love the "preppy" look of the card - not crazy about the face having no mouth. I'd probably have to draw one in :).

Nancee Purdum said...

So pretty! Love the blue! Nancee :)

Lisa Lucchese said...

I love these girls too! So adorable! Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing.

Yes Holley, I can relate with all the health issues, and being happy to make it to see another day.
My husband when he was alive hated the children with no mouths. It doesn't bother me one way or another,
hugs,

It makes me laugh every time I hear someone say that these images creep them out. It never occurs to me that it is weird. I always find them adorable.

alethea said...

This is adorable!! I love maggie's I think they are just beautiful!! HUgsxx

Vallarie Clegg said...

wow prizes every day...you must have a great stash! Love your work!

Shelley said...

I love your card, even if I think the image is of a child with a horrifying birth defect. I seldom ever even open an email or finishing viewing a blog post with Tilda in the headline. Tildas are creepy and frightening IMO. Not real fond of other stamp images that are similar, but they are not as bad as Tilda. I never liked House Mouse images either, lol. Guess I'm just a sissy.

Betsy said...

Love your card! And I LOVE Tilda images!!!
Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Leanne said...

Aww! This is adorable.

Stacy H-W said...

I like them both. I LOVE your card and her beautiful blue dress! Well done!

Kim said...

I love the Tilda and Magnolia stamps. I also love La-La Land Crafts and Uptown Girls stamps. I love the saying on your card and the colors you used.

Nikki C said...

Your hair looks fantastic the way you've coloured her up I think magnolia stamps are cute with or without a mouth and I love their bg stamps too

Hi Holley, a beautiful card and such a cute image. Love the colours too.

Fabulous xx Jan

Carol said...

Very pretty card. love Magnolia stamps.

Pat said...

I love Magnolia and Gorjuss girls as well, and your card is absolutely adorable!

Anonymous said...

Love her Holly I would love to get that stamp I have a few of the digi ones but every time I print them off the granddaughters come along and put a face on her they don’t understand why such a pretty little girl has no face

Rhonda Miller said...

This is such a sweet card. I personally love the Magnolia stamps. I think they're cute with or without the mouth.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Super sweet card.

Carmen M. said...

She is adorable. Men just simply don't know art :) I enjoy both companies you mentioned as well.

Nicky Wilcox said...

O shes so cute wonderful card xxx

Christine said...

Very cute.

ShersL84bed said...

I think the Magnolia designs are darling, however I do prefer a mouth. Like your hubby I find it creepy, like they aren't able to express their opinion. So, I usually will draw in a small mouth when I use one of these. :) Your card is darling.

Cindy said...

Princess Tilda is so Stinkin ADORABLE!!!! I Luv, Luv, Luv All of these little girls! They are so cute that their mouth is not even noticeable to me. Honestly this is Unique and adds to their appearance. I particularly love this one as it so reminds me of me in many ways!!! Thanks for doing such a great job on this one.

Charlene Mitchell said...

Super cute card Holley and fabulous colouring! I'm with your husband, not so much that they're creepy but I don't like images without a mouth or when they're 'odd' looking!

postalorphan said...

Very cute card, although I'm not a big fan of Magnolia ... something about the shape of their heads. It's not the "no mouth" thing, 'cuz I love Gorjuss girls!

bissecat said...

Cute Tilda and so beautiful blue!!

Laura said...

I love Magnolia stamps and that is primarily what I use. I like the fact that they don't have a mouth because you can give them one in whatever expression you would like to

Phi said...

I love images without mouths. There's something sweet and innocent about it.

Judith Perry said...

I am not a fan of the Gorjuss Girls.
