 The lovely papers are Pion Design - looove them!

Watercan Tilda

I think I must have a favourite Tilda afterall!!! I did know she was my favourite from the Sweet Rainbows collection, but this little sweetie has been pulled out of her binder three times recently. I can't seem to get enough of her. 

The are two great new challenges up this weekend - The Sketchy Challenges has a fabby new sketch by my gorgeous friend Jane, and Magnolia Down Under Challenges has a colour recipe.... can you guess???

Red, Yellow and Purple. OMG. Yes. I initally thought HOW on EARTH am I going to do this?? But I went with a fairly white card and coloured little miss Tilda in the colours. You should check out what the MDUC girls did with the colours - wow oh wow - those girls know how to rock a colour challenge. I am even more stunned than I am usually with their amazing work. 

Well.. thats it from me today. I'm sorry I've been a bit quiet lately. Its just a bit nuts here. 
Hopefully things will ease up soon. 
I'll be back tomorrow with something else to share. Til then, have a great weekend,

Honeybee Tilda

Hi everyone! Thanks for dropping by to visit me today.

I have finally masked together two of the new stamps from Magnolia. I've had them sitting on my desk for about a month now and I felt like I was neglecting them. I just needed the time to sit down and give them the benefit of extra time to colour them. This is HoneyBee Tilda and Meadow Daisy, both from the Summer Memories 2012 collection. 

All of the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. 

The lacy edge is Berry lace doo hickey from Magnolia as well.

I hope this week has started well for you. 
Have a good one, 
Hugs xx

Tilda and Wiola

Happy Mothers Day everyone! I hope you had a great day :)
My hubby and little people let me have a sleep in this morning, wow, its been... a year since my last one haha. 

There is a new challenge up at Magnolia Down Under Challenges today. This week we have a great sketch from Lori and we also have an option - to use doilies and doo hickey dies. I didn't manage a doily, but I did use a doo hickey on my card. Along with a sweet MFT Eiffel Tower die. There is something about this week stamp, Tilda with Wiola, that says Paris to me :) 

The papers are MME "Lost and Found 2".  All of the pretty pink and white flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the lace, rhinestones and pretty corner. 

I hope you get to join us at MDUC this week.

Summer Flower Tilda

Happy Saturday to you all... well, at least I think it should be Saturday everywhere in the world by now?

My card today is for The Sketchy Challenges. This week Kathrin is hosting and she has created a brilliant sketch to follow. 

I inked up Summer Flower Tilda from the new Summer Memories collection for my card today. The gorgeous cream lace is also Magnolia. I just love the lace they send out and I save it until I have a card for someone special.  This card is actually for my Mum for Mother's Day (sorry Mum, I've not sent it yet!!).

Most of the gorgeous flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The papers are Prima Romantique (one of my favs). 
The sentiment is by Lily of the Valley. 

So yep, lots of Stickles again. I was really pleased how my card turned out, it was a bit touch and go there for a bit but of course, it was Kathrin's sketch, so it was always going to turn out well in the end!! haha :) 

Well, I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums around the world. 
See you soon,
Hugs x

Hi there everyone, gosh, has it been a whole week? 
Things here have been really busy, but I finally found some time to make a card for this week's TOMIC challenge. This week we're playing BINGO! Its a nice easy one to play along with. 

I found cute "Will You Be My Valentine Tilda" from the "You are So Sweet" Collection 2011.
The shaped card is cut on my Cricut. I've gone with the Yellow, Pearls, Shaped Card line.

The sentiment is a Kaisercraft rub on. All of the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. There are some of my absolute favourites on here... including the Chrysanthemums - wow! You'll be seeing these on my cards a lot until I run out haha.. 

I hope you get a chance to join in this week. 
The girls have made really beautiful cards as inspiration to share with you. 

Thats all from me, so enjoy the rest of the week,
