Teeny Tiny Tildas

I had a ball at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC last saturday, think my dad and niece enjoyed themselves too!  Although we practically walked our legs off, we picked up some great new stash.  I managed to get a couple of the nestabilities dies I wanted and a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders.  I also picked up a little 'bling' and some pretty ribbons.  Best of all, Magnolia had a stand there and were selling the mini magnolia stamps.  They are adorable and just so tiny and sweet.  As this weeks challenge on the Lets Get Stamping group over on Craftbubble is to make tags, these little sweeties were just perfect!  I photographed them in small batches as I thought it might be difficult to see the images if I put all of them into the picture, so here is the first set.  I coloured the images with ProMarkers (very carefully!) added some stickles and touches of Spica glitter pens.  All the base cards were cut out using various shapes of nestabilities dies and I used another of my NEC buys, the snowstorm Cuttlebug embossing folder.  It is difficult to gauge the size on this close-up piccie, with hindsight I think I should have place a 20p piece in the picture for perspective - next time I'll remember this.  Don't know if any of these fit the bill for Annie's K.I.S.S. Monday challenge, but I'll link them and Annie can decide if they do or not!  None of them have any 'shop bought' embelishments, although one has a small piece of ribbon on it.  I will post up the next batch of tags later.
Here's a picture of me and my dad with Jayne Hayward who is a pal of mine on Paper Craft Planet, we are standing in front of the Magnolia stand.  It was unfortunate (or fortunate!) that Magnolia would only accept cash as payment, so I had to put a few things back (gasp!) and could only get what I could for the cash I had on me.  Still, what I did get I am very happy with.
