My First Tilda Card!!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. We haven't really done too much...yesterday I got my hair cut & colored and Lance hung out with the kids. This morning we went up to visit Lance's Mom and Dad, came home for lunch, Landon went for a sleep, Kirsten and I raked up some of the dead grass hanging around out front and then we went for a walk to see the new baby calf born yesterday. He is a special little guy that's for sure...Kirsten has named him Wiggles Brownie...he has really crooked legs for some reason so he is super wiggly wobbly on his legs...and get this...he was born without a tail...WHAT!! How wild is that!! I am hoping to keep him as a "pet", we'll see what Lance thinks about that. So Woggles for the wobbly legs and he is a Red Angus calf, so that's close enough to bronw for her:-) After that we went for a walk down to the creek and Lance got a "big bike" for Kirsten out of the cabin, one with no training wheels. Both Lance and I have been running around the yard with her on her "big bike" and she is doing pretty good. The little monkey can feel as soon as you let go and then she's chicken, crazy girl...any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated!
As I mentioned before, I received my first order of Magnolia stamps last week!! I made a card with one of my Edwin's the other day, so I thought I would ink up Tilda this time. I also used the bench as well and this specific Tilda is Farmer Tilda. I used this sketch from Katharina's blog. Her sketch's are so wonderful, you can find them all here. I am having a hard time with my scalloped edges for some reason...I have the CTMH corner rounder (made by EK Success and has the guard like SU) , so I am not sure if maybe it is a wee bit different size than the SU ones or what the problem is, but I do have the SU slit punch, so I will try it with that next time. Now for some reason or another the bench looks really harsh in this picture, but it really isn't that bad IRL:-)
Thank so much for stopping by...I am really trying to post at least every second day if not every day, but sometimes it just doesn't work out:-) Anyway, thanks for stickin' with me and have a super Sunday!!
