Here's One I Made Earlier!

I did tell you I would be back with a card :)

Thankfully I have a few cards that I'd made before I started with this neck/shoulder problem, and this one was for the recent birthday of the lovely and uber talented Mandy.

Because it was for Mandy then the image had to be a Tilda, and I really wanted to use a special one that I'd been searching for, with very many thanks to Kees and Astrid at Creashop Duymelot for getting this for're the best ♥

She's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers (made a bugger of her hair but by then I'd spent so long colouring the rest of her that I was running out of time to make another card)

I was desperate to use these gorgeous papers from the Maja Design Vintage Spring pad, I love lilac!
A Doo Hickey heart flourish, MFT butterflies, punched flowers and a sentiment from PTI.

Have a fun and fab day :)
Thanks for looking.


  1. Your card is amazing and you have coloured Tilda so awesome. I'm very in love with your colouring...

  2. She is gorgeous Elaine and her hair is to....I wonder what we see when viewing our own work sometimes, I was surprised when you said recently that you struggled with hair, I have always liked it...weird...anyways, it's a gorgeous card..and those papers are fab.xx

  3. It looks fine to me & I love the way you've coloured the flower-centre yellow which chimes in with your inking of the flourish edges. Absolutely gorgeous colour combination & I love the way you used the stripy pattern for the flower.
    Take care of yourself & I do hope you're soon very much more comfortable & on the road to recovery.
