Magnolia Summer Buzz Tilda

Tildas Town - Your Favorite Season…

Hooray! It's the first day of Spring and
this week at my favourite challenge blog, we would like you to show us what Your Favourite Season is. Mine is Spring... or Summer, when the birds are singing and I can feel the warm sunshine on my arms. Bliss!
My DT card shows Tilda picnicking. It is from the Pink Lemonade Collection - Summer Buzz Tilda.

I used my distress re-inkers on watercolour paper and the dies are all Magnolia except for the background which is Joy Craft. Flowers, lace and pearl stringing has been woven through the die cut. I've added a pearl stick pin to the flowers to give height.
The pretty papers are the latest Pion Design - all stitched and inked. I love these SO much!
 Tilda has Glamour Dust on her dress and the bees have glittery wings.
I hope to visit your blogs very soon, to see your wonderful creations.
As usual you have a chance to win a $10 gift voucher from the store as a random winner.

 It's Christina here hoping you are all well.
 At the beginning of the year, I resolved to use all the  unused stamps and papers that are stashed away in my craft room.
So here is Christmas Kitchen Tilda, which I thought perfect for Mothers Day.
 I am totally in love with these  pretty Pion papers and can't believe I haven't used them before. I love pink and blue so I added a touch of pink to brighten the card up.

 Warning - loads of pictures.
All the dies are Magnolia. The birdcage was cut from the same paper and heat embossed  to give a glassy shine.
All the lace, ribbon, heart etc. are from the Ribbon Girl. Oh, how I love that diamanté heart, must buy more!
 Tilda was coloured with distress re- inkers onto watercolour paper and stitched to match the rest of the card.
With Glamour Dust on her apron.
 There is a hidden tag inside the easel fold for a greeting.
That touch of bling - the sparkly heart.

The birdcage- Blue pearls on lace .

That's all for now but I'm sure I will be back soon.
Hope you like the card.

Anything Goes with the option of 'Bling'

I have chosen Tilda with Big Rose from the Pink Lemonade collection and coloured her with distress re-inkers.
Of  course I added some bling!
 Pale pink pearl stringing is intertwined on Tildas' frame.
She has Glamour dust added to her lace and rose, also sprinkled on the edges of the leaves.

The papers are Maja design, distressed and stitched.
The die cuts are all made with Marianne dies. There is some very pretty lace somewhere, peeping out from the roses.

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.
This is a card made with "You'r a Star" from
 Lili of the Valley with sentiments from Lili of the Valley.
It is coloured with distress inks on watercolour paper with lots of Glamour dust and a little crown charm.
The papers are Maja Design, flowers and button from my stash and the flags were just cut out freehand.
 I've just noticed a hair on the card, courtesy of my Labradoodle who loses her coat constantly. Never believe anyone who tells you they don't moult, first generations often do. She loses hair all year round! Anyway, you can just see the charm in the corner and the Glamour Dust on the wings and wand.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card.
