Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 78

Good Morning my lovelies :)

Today we have a new challenge at Totally Tilda and the theme for the next fortnight is 'Tilda's Wedding'.

As always, Tilda is coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers.
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring basics...still loving these papers and I've now started on pad No2.   A strip of lace (I wish I knew where this had come from, I could do with some more!)
Tilted banner die and stamps from Simon Says Stamp, a punched flower with some sparkle from The Handcrafted Card Company, a few pearls and some Doodlebug design bling (thank you honey).

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Sir Stampalot

And the prize is TWO Magnolia stamps.

You'll find a gorgeous array of cards over on the Totally Tilda blog from all the other lovely Tildarettes.

I've not been around much this last week (yet again!) which I can only apologise for.
My Mum suffered a stroke on Tuesday and was admitted to Hope Hospital.
Thankfully, due to the speedy actions of my Dad, the ambulance service and the fantastic treatment by the doctors and nurses, she is recovery very well.

Thanks for looking
