Tilda With Rose Lace Dress

Yeah! So happy Ive finally made a card!!! :D
I was beginning to think my mojo had gone far away on holiday somewhere without telling me.
A good sort out in my craft room usually does the trick. But now after making this card its like a bomb site again..((Eyes Roll))

Its the Ribbon Girls new colour challenge and we want to see Aqua on your fabulous cards and as always theres an amazing prize up for grabs.
I took my photos using my Mobile phone this time.Its supposed to be 13 million pixels where my usual camera is only 5 million. It also has fancy things you can do, so im still learning. 

Ive used one of the new Magnolia stamps Tilda With Rose Lace Dress now available to order from SirStampalot along with the whole collection

The flower is made with my DooHickey Pointsettia Die.
Other dies are Doohickeys Pinwheel, Scalloped Tag and the new shape die,
Papers are Magnolia

from the Ribbon Girls shop I used  Cheescloth, Wooden Heart Button, 12mm Amanda Ivory Scallop Flat Lace, Ivory Pearl string, Rose Bud Semi Open Pale Pink, Sparkle Rose Pink, 10mm Open Rose Pale Pink, Dusky Blue 30mm Wild Rose(Stained White) and Beaded White Gypsophalia

Until then peeps

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

The main flower I made using DooHickey Peony Die
also the DooHickey Butterfly.
and  DooHickey Rose Leaf and Scalloped Tag.
from the Ribbon Girls Shop I used Beaded Berries Ivory /Cream, Cheesecloth, Starburst Stamen White, Cherry Blossom White, Chrysanth Ivory Kort & Godt, Ivory 10mm Open Roses, 12mm Donna Ivory Fine Cotton Lace and Ivory Beaded Trim.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I Do

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
