Sweet Tilda in Pink and Purple

Hi all,
Just a quick post to share my latest creation. I chose to make another tealight box card as I hadn't made one for ages and I loved making this one.

I wanted to make this a little different from previous projects so I added an acetate dome over the front of the card to create a little depth. I have paper pieced Tilda's dress as I do think she looks good in polka dots!

I have to say it feels a little strange not distressing anything but I hope you like it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - #101 'Purple and Pink'
Paper Sundaes - #104 'Paper Piecing'
Crafty Catz - #117 'Things With Wings'
Charisma Cardz - #3 'Pretty in Pink'

Happy Crafting

Tilda Looks Lovely in Red

Good evening all,
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I had a fantastic week last week as I was lucky enough to be chosen for 2 Top 5 places for my last Tilda card, so I would like to say a huge thank you to both DT's.

I finally feel that I am getting my crafting mojo back and I am here again to share with you yet another Tilda card. I love this little cutie and she really reminds me of my little niece Alexandra. I have not had much luck using red so this was a little challenge for me, so I hope you like it. I have had these Magnolia papers for such a long time and thought it was about time I used them.

Sweet Tilda in Black and White

Good evening peeps!
Wow can you believe it 2 posts in 2 days. The reason being I should have been preparing for a workshop today but instead just got carried away playing with scrummy stuff in the shop oops! Looks like tomorrow could be a late one for me as the workshop is on Wednesday.

Anyway I just couldn't not enter the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under as I love colouring in Black and White so thats enough justification for me.
Ok so I used the beautiful 'Sweet Tilda' from Magnolia who is still one of my very favourite little cuties. As always I used my trusty Promarkers but this time limited myself to just the Cool Grey collection. The fab sketch came from Just Magnolia and was such a joy to use.
Everything was distressed with Pumice Stone and spritzed with Pearl Glimmer mist and edged with Stardust Stickles.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under - #129 'Black and White Image'
Just Magnolia - #139 Sketch
Passion for Promarkers - #131 'Inspired by a Song' (my song is 'Shades of Grey' by The Monkees)
I Love Promarkers - #99 'Cute and Cuddly'
Paper Sundaes - 2 Birthday ' Pick Your Favourite Past Paper Sundaes Challenge' (I have chosen the Magnolia challenge of Coarse!)
Charisma Cardz - #1 'Happy Birthday'

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting!

The Finished Article

Evening all,
Just a quick post tonight. I wanted to share with you the notebooks I made for my lovely friends this Christmas. As money seems to be a bit tight for everyone we decided to handmake our pressies for each other this year and had great fun in the process.

I made a simpler version of one of these notebooks a few months ago but these needed to be a bit special. I must add that I recieved 2 wonderful handmade gifts in return and feel this will become a Christmas tradition.
Hope to post again soon as I have quite a few new projects to share with you.

Happy Crafting
