Banana Tilda

Today to share is another DT card on its way to Sweden and a little taste of Summer.
Summer?? What's that she says?(as the wind howls outside!!).
Weve also had 15cm of snow forecast today. So Im pretending Im on a warm sandy beach somewhere....if only.
 For my card Ive used another new Tilda from the Lovely Duo Collection, 'Banana Tilda Duo' and 'Aloha Palm Leaves, painted with Distress Reinkers
 The Palm Tree idea came from my crafty friend Jane, from a very clever card I remembered she made last Summer using the Fern DooHickey Die. I wasnt sure what she used for the trunk so I used Tim's Sizzix die rolled Pinecone and just snipped the little bits off and built them up.

I thought the little charm was perfect for this card too. You will find this at Live and Love Crafts
The gorgeous purple flowers are from the Ribbon Girl shop.

Ive used Go Kreate for the shape of the card and DooHickeys for the leaves, gate and tag.

Thankyou so much for stopping by .
I hope you have a great day. Im having a crafting one :D

A Recylcled Book

Today is the 2nd Magnolia DT Christmas Blog Hop.

The start of the hop is my other blog HERE

For my project I made something Ive had in mind for a while, using an old paperback book.
I kept seeing these on Pinterest and couldn't wait to give it a go. Very easy too.
For the cards Ive used Tilda With Apple Wreath and Tilda With Trumpet from Waiting For Christmas Collection coloured in Sepia using Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I found it quite therapeutic making this tree. It does advise to use a 200 page book. Here I used a 300 page, which took lots of folding, but the result was a very full tree.

Seam Binding, Rusty bells, Cheesecloth and the gorgeous Diamante Star are all from the Ribbon Girl Shop.
The wooden stars are from Live and Love Crafts

Thankyou so much for visiting me
Have a wonderful weekend
