Here I Am Tilda


Here I am again!!
Two posts in two days!! I am doing well.. :D

I managed a little playtime yesterday and it was one of those times when I couldn't put it down until it was finished. 
Ive had this idea in my head as soon as I saw 'Here I am Tilda' masked with the window stamp from an earlier collection. This must be one of my most used Magnolia Stamps.
Both available at Sir Stampalot

I tried to create the Clematis flowers like in the picture above using the DooHickey Peony Die. I just love this flower when it is in full bloom.

 Again I used lots of DooHickeys
 and as always I coloured with Distress Re-Inkers
Papers are Maja Coffee In The Arbour
Other bits and pieces of lace are from the Ribbon Girl Shop

Thankyou so much for stopping by today.
I wish you an amazing week ahead :D
Hugs for now

A Summer Tag

Hello There
How are you?
 I hope you are managing to stay cool in this heat wave we are having!!! Phew! its a warm one for sure. But Im not complaining....not just yet anyhow!!

Today to share is a Summer inspired  Tag for the  new Magnolia Challenge over at the Ribbon Girls.

I was cooling down swimming in the Meditteranean!! (In my dreams..hey!! :D) and this was beneath me deep in the ocean..;D

I did really enjoy making this with Magnolia's DooHickey Summer kit Dies. Though Im not too sure they are still available as they were a limited edition :(..
Other DooHickeys I used were Peony,Rose Petal and Vintage Photo Frames

All Laces and embellies are from the amazing Ribbon Girls shop...I used
Oval Ivory Pearl Trim, Cheesecloth, 10mm Ivory Pearl Daisy Trim, Andrea Ivory Flower Fine Cluny Lace, Pearl Brad, Lily Flowers Large/Medium, Prima Treasures Oval Resin Frame, Green Seam Binding, Beaded Berries Ivory, Clear Dewdrops, Irridescent Hearts and Ships Wheel Charm

and I cant forget the Seahorses. I wanted a shiny, glistening effect so I used Aged Silver Frantage and while still hot sprinkled with Frantage Shaved Ice

Paper are the gorgeous Riddersholm Tailgate Marked.
I just LOVE Love LOVE these papers. They are great to work with Dies and water....

Hope you like it as much as I love making it
Hugs

The flower is made with my DooHickey Pointsettia Die.

Ey Up Tilda!

Hi There
Whoops I forgot to post this card here.
I really do need a catch up with my blogging. Its so neglected recently. But the weather is just too nice to be sat indoors!!

This card was from a couple of weeks ago when the Tour De France passed through where I live in Yorkshire.

So inspired by all the craziness surrounding me, I thought I may as well join in..Though Tilda isnt in the Tour De France...she's on the look out for David Beckham and Brad Pit who are very near by and were spotted in 'Betty's' ( A famous TeaRoom) near where I live..4 miles from my house!!!!! whoooaaaah!!!
Even Prince William and Kate passed through my village !!! :D

On the route there's banners and flags flying everywhere..

Anyway back to my card ...I painted with Distress ReInkers
Dies used are DooHickeys Slender Tress, Gate, Rose Leaf and Flag Banner.
Flowers I made with Marianne rolled Roses Die
Papers are Maja Coffee in the Harbour

I will pop back in next week with some more photos of when they cycle through...I will give you a wave on TV!!! ;D
Until then I wish you an amazing weekend
hugs

I Do

Hey! 
There's a new Colour Challenge over at the Ribbon Girls Challenge Blog today which is Ivory.
The timing was perfect for me as I had been commissioned to do a Wedding card this month. Not something I take on often, but I hate to say no!
I always feel under pressure when its a special card for someone else!!!
Anyway here it is and I really hope its what they wanted.  As usual I was scrambling around for letters..Why do you always run out of 'A's and 'S's. Arghhh panic stations or what!
Saying that I loved colouring these two :D 

Papers I used were Riddersholm Huntington Garden

and  Im LOVING the new Magnolia DooHickeys Vintage Square..soooo elegant.
Can you believe this Tilda and Edwin are 4 years old now. They are from the Wedding Collection 2010


Thankyou so much for taking your time to visit me

Big Hugs
