Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 86


Good Morning my lovelies.
It's December 1st today...how on Earth did that happen? I guess I need to start thinking about Christmas!

I'm here today with my creation for the new Totally Tilda challenge. The theme for the next fortnight is
'Anything But A Card' and I chose to dress up a box.



Show the way Tilda has been coloured with the usual DI markers.
I used MFT dies to make the tag and the pretty little paper bow.
A punched snowflake, a couple of Doodlebugs jewels, and a sparkly diamante embellie complete the tag.

The box with an acetate cover is pre-made from Stampin' Up and it's held closed with 25mm satin ribbon tied into a big, fat bow and finished with a Sparkly button.
The box is filled with lovely ribbons from The Ribbon Girl in shades of purple.

And the prize for one lucky winner is 2 Magnolia stamps.

Thanks for looking.
Love 'n' hugs

Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 85


Good Morning my lovelies.

I'm back today with my card for the new Totally Tilda challenge, and we have a fabulous theme for the next fortnight...Buttons and Bows.

I loved making this card...all Princess Pink, girly and glittery.


I have no idea what this Tilda is actually called (no name on the packaging again) but to me she is called Princess Tilda. As always, she's been coloured with DI markers.
The gorgeous papers are Maja Design Sofiero.
Joy! Crafts Butterfly Border.
Sentiment from PTI on La-La Land Stitched Tabs.
The bow was made from 25mm pale fuchsia sheer ribbon with a button stitched onto the centre.
A few pearls and some Prima enamel dots.

Please pop on over to the Totally Tilda blog and you can see the amazing cards made by all the other Tildarettes. 

I believe I can enter my card into the In The Pink challenge, where the theme is stitching, real or faux.

Thanks for looking.
Love 'n' hugs.

A Berry Merry Christmas

Good morning my lovelies.

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm getting in the spirit of the season...or rather I'm in panic mode as usual! It sure is true, the older I get and the quicker it seems to come around.
I think I've made 4 Christmas cards so far, I guess I'll be buying most of them again this year.

It's been another dark and wet day here and this was the best photo I could come up with, I just couldn't capture how sparkly it is in real life.


The gorgeous Berry is of course designed by Sylvia Zet and available to buy as a Digi or a Rubber stamp.
As usual she's coloured with DI's, mainly markers.
There's glossy accents on the berries to make them shine, and plenty of glamour dust on her ear muffs and boot tops.
The sentiment is from PTI.
The lush papers are again from Maria, a Christmas gift last year.
The bow is made from 15mm Satin Ribbon with a diamante snowflake in the middle, and there's die cut snowflakes on the edge.

Thanks for looking.
Love 'n' hugs

Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 84


Good Morning my lovelies.

Today we have a new challenge at Totally Tilda, and the theme for the next fortnight is
'Going Postal For Christmas'.
I never seem to get around to making many Christmas cards so this was a very welcome theme for me.
Just remember to use a post mark, postcard or postage stamp with a Christmas theme.




This little cutie is North Pole Tilda.
She's coloured with the usual DI markers, with lots of Glamour Dust on her gloves and hat, and 'Wink of Stella' pen on the little snowflakes around her...she's very twinkly in real life!
Papers are Pion Design 'Wintertime in Swedish Lapland'.
MFT Die-namics snowflake.
Ecru satin ribbon and a few pearls.
The circular post mark from Inkido was another gift from Maria last Christmas
