Forget me not Tilda

Wowee, first day of autumn over here in Australia. So what are we given? A beautiful 30 degree plus summer day. Summer has certainly arrived late here. Which is a little unfortunate as I do love autumn. 

I have coloured this adorable little "Forget me Nots Tilda" from the Special Moments 2013 collection for my card and added  lots of gorgeous things from The Ribbon Girl

I went a little overboard with the gorgeous Ribbon Girl goodies.

Tilda was coloured with Copics. The card base was cut using a Doo Hickey die and so was the layer that Tilda is stamped on. 

There are even flowers on that delicious lace

A bookmark for my son

Good morning friends 
I have a project here to share with you for MDUC today. There is a new challenge up and this fortnight we're looking for "Snips and snails and puppy dogs tails" - or if you prefer, one for the boys.

I am very excited that my eldest son has been showing interest in "chapter books". He is 6 and in the first grade at school. We've just begun "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and I couldn't be happier. 

To celebrate this milestone, I made him his first bookmark. 
This features an adorable older Edwin, "Heartbreaker Edwin" from the Right Through my Heart collection of 2010. He is sitting on "Books" from the Graduate collection of 2009.

The ribbons, string and button are all from Ribbon Girl.

I stamped the background with a Prima script stamp using "Old Paper" DI. The sentiment is Bildmalarna. 

It would be great for you to join us at MDUC this fortnight. 
Magnolia themselves are sponsoring the challenge so it would be a fantastic prize to win. 
hope to see you there!

Bonny Tilda

Hi all. Well I have my all time favourite Maggie on my card to share today and I have to share with you - the reaction from my little boys when they saw it was pretty funny, oh the giggling!! I suppose naked cherubs are pretty funny when you're six years old. 

This little cherub in particular reminds me of my eldest with the curls. haha. 

There is a new challenge at MDUC today - Valentines with a twist - No red!
Not so hard afterall. I have to confess, I did want to do no red and no pink but I wasn't allowed, hehe, apparently that is too hard. Pish!

This cute stamp is Bonny Tilda from With Love collection 2013.

All of the embellishments (except the mauve crystal stems) are from The Ribbon Girls.  
The mauve crystal stems and gorgeous papers are from Magnolia. The papers are actually Christmas papers but I thought they were kind of mixed purpose so used them anyway.

I've coloured Tilda with copics and inked the surround with DI Milled Lavender.
The sentiment is from he new collection, Lovely Duo.

It was fun to colour a little cherb for a change. Lots of chubby bits :) 

So there you have it, my non red or pink Valentines card.

And finally, a little update of my puppy Lolly :) 
She has grown a lo this week and settled into our family beautifully.

Until next time
Hugs Kylie x
