Ive used Christmas Kitchen Tilda water coloured with Distress Re-Inkers
The papers are the gorgeous Pion Design Paris Flea Market

 Dies for the leaves and Butterfly are DooHickeys from the new DooHickey Club Kit.
Ive also added a little Frantage 'Shabby Blue' on the Butterfly

It was certainly a Challenge made in heaven for me.

Lucky Tilda

Ive another new Tilda for you today from the Lovely Duo Collection. She is 'Lucky Tilda'

Ive also treated myself to some new Spellbinder dies for a change, but not sure I'm into them or not just yet. They are Elegant Labels four, but Im sure they will grow on me. I already had Labels four, so at least they combine together perfectly.

Ive coloured Tilda with Distress Re-Inkers and pens.
Papers are Pion  Design 'Alma's Sewing Room' From Live and Love Crafts. I really adore the sultry Mauve's in this collection.

Lace and Flowers are also from LLC and the Pearl Trim from the Ribbon Girls

The Butterfly is from Magnolia and the flower I made using the Poinsettia die from the Christmas club Collection.
The Seam Binding was originally white but I dyed it using Distress Stain Mulled Lavender.

Thankyou so much for stopping by today.
Hugs to you

You Are My Valentine Tilda

Hello There
A couple of weeks ago I was asked by Sandy at LLC if I would stand in for my fellow Magnolia Teamie over at Live and Love Crafts DT Blog while she moved home.
Wow! What an honour! Of course I said yes, but at the same time Im shaking in my boots because all the DT girls are just amazing..
Scary... but at the same time exciting! Something what I really need at the moment to give my adrenaline a boost!:D
So I'm there for the next six weeks

Each week the girls follow a challenge theme and this week it is a Love Song or Movie.
I kind of had a choice of two themes in my head.
The song I have chosen is 'Cupid' by Sam Cooke.
Ive also been inspired by the movie 'Robin Hood Prince of Thieves' because the theme song by Bryan Adams 'Everything I do' was our wedding song and seeing as this weekend is my wedding Anniversay, I just couldn't choose between the two.

For my card Ive used the gorgeous Maja papers 'A Gift for You-Sent With Love'. Oh I just love anything with hearts on.

I have masked three Magnolia images and watercoloured with Distress Reinkers to give a Sepia, vintage effect and a little Aged Mahogany on the hearts.
I have made a shaker card, so have also punched out smaller hearts which you can see behind the acetate.

The Rolled Roses I made myself and the gorgeous bits and pieces Ive put below the post from the LLC shop.
I did actually manage to use them rather than collect and stroke all of Sandy's gorgeous goodies. 
I do have a tendency to collect all this yumminess instead of actually using it.

Ive used 'You Are My Valentine'  Tilda from Lovely Duo Collection Masked with 'I Love you' and 'Love' Text from earlier Collections.
For the Diecuts Ive used Doohickeys
Thankyou so much for stopping by today
I wish you a wonderful day ♥

Tilda With Coco-Nuts

Yayyyy its the weekend!!!!
 Today to share is  my latest card using Coco-Nuts Tilda from the latest Collection Lovely Duo
 Isn't she just adorable. I painted her with Distress Reinkers.
Above I have whitewashed one of the new Magnolia Fabric Butterflies. Originally it was quite a bright green, but I find if I water down  chalk paint, it makes an excellent white wash and is great for toning down bright colours to a more pastel tone.
I also did this on the flower below.
Papers are Maja Design and the gorgeous Lace is from LLC
Dies are all DooHickeys and Spellbinders.
Thankyou so much for stopping by today. I hope you like my card.
Have a wonderful day wherever you are
