Thanks' for dropping by today. I managed to finish colouring "Tilda with Heart Phone" and thought I would show you how it turned out. I love this latest collection from Magnolia.
The "World Wide Web" stamps are lovely and although
I only have three at the moment, I am sure to
 be adding to them.
 These are Magnolia papers that I have had for ages. I used  a set of Go Kreate dies to cut the shape, adding gesso round the edges. I decoupaged a little bird onto one of the tags, added  a string of pearls round the image and across the top layer, then pearl lace across the card finishing with
a shabby bark heart at the bottom.
 I used distress re-inkers to colour.
The notebook edge has been cut with a Joy Craft die, the bubbles with a Memory Box die and the tags on the right are Magnolia Doo Hickey. The leaves are Marianne and the flowers are from my stash.
I hope you like her. She coloured up first time and I can't wait to do it over again.
Sending Hugs

Magnolia ~ Loves Me Loves, Loves Me Not Tilda

Tildas' Town Challenge ~Use Your Stash
The clocks altered last night and we have a whole extra hour of crafting today, Yay! I had nearly finished colouring  my new "Tilda With Heart Phone" yesterday when the darkness took over ...

So, on to the new challenge at Tildas' Town.
This week it's Use Your Stash.
My stash is huge!

This card was made with Loves Me, Loves Me Not Tilda who is coloured with distress re-inkers and has been stitched and inked. The card is an easel and the tag opens to reveal a message.
The ribbon and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl, I always carry lots of them in my stash. And the dies too, They range from Marianne, Magnolia, Joy Craft and Go Kreate, but I have lots in my stash and use them all the time. Another thing I always have is Maja Paper. I adore the muted colours and the way they inter mix and match.
Tildas Town offer a $10 gift voucher from the Store as a random winner.

 A big, big thank you for leaving me comments. I love them. So, that's it for today. I'm off to finish my colouring.
Have a lovely week.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend. My card today uses AMY by Sylvia Zet. As usual she is coloured with distress inks.
These papers are the last of my Sofiero Limited collection from Maja, sob... I wish they would print more. I loved them SO much! All ribbon and embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl and the shaped card was made with  GoKreate dies and I have stitched the layers.

This is just a quick post for now. I will be back later in the week.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your comments, they mean a lot to me.

Thank you for popping by today. It's a Spring solstice this morning and I'm looking forward to sunny days ahead.
It's been so cold here in London this week!
 I was thinking of Spring when I made this card.
 I chose "Tilda in the Garden" from the Little London Collection. She has been coloured using distress re-inkers onto Langton watercolour paper.  The gorgeous raspberry Maja papers have been cut with GoKreate dies, inked and stitched. Other dies are Magnolia and Joy Craft.


 Glamour dust is visable onto her dungarees and she had to have a pink spade because... She is Tilda!

 The tag is held in an envelope, tucked inside so it can be easily removed for a message. The lace and ribbons can be found at the Ribbon Girl.

Thank you Stamp & Create for choosing this card in the best three top three of your challenge x
OK, so that's about it for now.
 I am eagerly awaiting the new All About Magnolia Challenge. I am tempted to enter the DT call.  I'm still thinking about it, but I don't know if my card making is good enough.... there are lots of big names entering.
The new Design Team are FANTASTIC crafters and because it is being run by the very talented Dee Dee, it has the potential to be  a very exciting challenge.
Have a lovely day

This weekend we celebrate Mothers Day here in the UK. My Mum passed away a few years ago, but Mothering Sunday is always filled with happy memories. So today I have made a card for all mums, everywhere.
The theme at TILDAS' TOWN for this week is
I chose one of my favourite stamps, Afternoon Tea Tilda,  for this card, and coloured her with distress inks and watercolour paper. The gorgeous papers are by Maja Design and all the edges are stitched and inked.
The large circle die is an old Marianne, the branch die is a Joy Craft and the card was cut using GoKreate dies.
 The lace and pearls are from Ribbon Girl and flowers from my stash.
I added a cute teacup and spoon charm for a finishing touch and a touch of glitter on Tilda's lace.
 So, Happy Mothering Sunday to all mums, wherever you are.
Know that you are loved.

The sun is shining and it is very warm for March. 
It i a real Spring day and this stamp reminds me of just that.
Tilda is off to an occasion I think, maybe a tea party or off to the races. Anyway, its somewhere she can show off her hat.
 I've used distress re-inkers to colour her onto watercolour paper and added stitching around her. The papers are also stitched with a frame of  Joy Craft Butterflies.
I added a Joy Craft branch die, large Marianne circle die and a Spellbinders rectangle die and made some open wing butterflies, glittered and beaded.
A gorgeous big bow holds a pearl and diamanté heart.
The Branch die, flowers and gorgeous lace.
So, I hope the sun continues to shine on you this week.
If not there are stamps waiting to be inked and cards just waiting for you to make......

Magnolia Summer Buzz Tilda

Tildas Town - Your Favorite Season…

Hooray! It's the first day of Spring and
this week at my favourite challenge blog, we would like you to show us what Your Favourite Season is. Mine is Spring... or Summer, when the birds are singing and I can feel the warm sunshine on my arms. Bliss!
My DT card shows Tilda picnicking. It is from the Pink Lemonade Collection - Summer Buzz Tilda.

 I used distress re-inkers on watercolour paper and the dies are all Magnolia except for the background which is Joy Craft. Flowers, lace and pearl stringing has been woven through the die cut. I've added a pearl stick pin to the flowers to give and a Doo Hickey bow to the corner.

The pretty papers are the latest Pion Design - all stitched and inked. I love these SO much!
 Tilda has Glamour Dust on her dress and the bees have glittery wings.
I hope to visit your blogs very soon, to see your wonderful creations.
As usual you have a chance to win a $10 gift voucher from the store as a random winner.
