Welcome Friends!

After discussing with Tilda and Friends we have decided to invite along some of the other characters you may have in your stamping box! We all love Tilda, but realise that sometimes it can be refreshing to use a different stamp now and then on our ATCs, so from now on please feel free to use other images that feature the cute round faces we have come to love. Suggestions would be the Scandinavian family of Hanglar and Stanglar that are soon to be available to us in the UK at Funky Kits or perhaps the Sugar Nellie Hamish and Maggie or Luca and Nellie. Or you could use one of the Cuddly Buddly people stamps (not the animals or bears though, unless that is the theme one week) or some of the cute people from Sprial Whisper, Precious Moments, or the Country Girls from Alota stamps. We do not want to see any Sarah Kay, Sweet Ebony or similar styles as although we love these images, they are more realistic in design and there are already several blogs featuring them. So please keep to the cute round faces and take your inspiration each week from the design team's creations.

Information for making ATCs is on the side bar and this week there is no set theme so please just have fun and make a cute ATC, then leave us a link so we can come and take a look. We are so pleased to have Andrea on the design team here with us, and as she is also a design team member for Magnolia Stamps, her ATC each week will feature a Magnolia image. The rest of the design team members will no doubt be showing you different stamped images from time to time and those that are on the design teams of different stamp manufacturers will be telling us a little about themselves, and the stamps they design with, in the coming weeks.

First of all, here's a little bit from Andrea:

Hi, I'm Andrea and those of you who know me , know that I am a bit of a Magnoliaholic and I am so lucky to be on the Magnolia DT. I love using Tildas and Edwins and all the accessories, they are just perfect for ATCs as well as cards. I find ATCs are ideal for making into quick cards and for using as toppers or for decorating little books etc.

I have made my ATC using the gorgeous new Cross Stitch Tilda and also a gatefold card using an identical ATC. I have a brand new Cross Stitch Tilda and some stamped images, ribbons and flowers to send to one randomly chosen winner so why not join in the fun and make some ATCs and remember you don't just have to use Magnolia images anymore, as Tilda would love to see some new friends. To be in with a chance of winning just leave us a link to your ATC.


And here are the ATCs the rest of the DT have made to share with you this week:

Annie Caz Caz has also made a card using her ATC this week.



Lynn has also made a Door Hanger using her ATC
