Magnolia ~ Loves Me Loves, Loves Me Not Tilda

Tildas' Town Challenge ~Use Your Stash
The clocks altered last night and we have a whole extra hour of crafting today, Yay! I had nearly finished colouring  my new "Tilda With Heart Phone" yesterday when the darkness took over ...

So, on to the new challenge at Tildas' Town.
This week it's Use Your Stash.
My stash is huge!

This card was made with Loves Me, Loves Me Not Tilda who is coloured with distress re-inkers and has been stitched and inked. The card is an easel and the tag opens to reveal a message.
The ribbon and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl, I always carry lots of them in my stash. And the dies too, They range from Marianne, Magnolia, Joy Craft and Go Kreate, but I have lots in my stash and use them all the time. Another thing I always have is Maja Paper. I adore the muted colours and the way they inter mix and match.
Tildas Town offer a $10 gift voucher from the Store as a random winner.

 A big, big thank you for leaving me comments. I love them. So, that's it for today. I'm off to finish my colouring.
Have a lovely week.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend. My card today uses AMY by Sylvia Zet. As usual she is coloured with distress inks.
These papers are the last of my Sofiero Limited collection from Maja, sob... I wish they would print more. I loved them SO much! All ribbon and embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl and the shaped card was made with  GoKreate dies and I have stitched the layers.

This is just a quick post for now. I will be back later in the week.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your comments, they mean a lot to me.

Thank you for popping by today. It's a Spring solstice this morning and I'm looking forward to sunny days ahead.
It's been so cold here in London this week!
 I was thinking of Spring when I made this card.
 I chose "Tilda in the Garden" from the Little London Collection. She has been coloured using distress re-inkers onto Langton watercolour paper.  The gorgeous raspberry Maja papers have been cut with GoKreate dies, inked and stitched. Other dies are Magnolia and Joy Craft.


 Glamour dust is visable onto her dungarees and she had to have a pink spade because... She is Tilda!

 The tag is held in an envelope, tucked inside so it can be easily removed for a message. The lace and ribbons can be found at the Ribbon Girl.

Thank you Stamp & Create for choosing this card in the best three top three of your challenge x
OK, so that's about it for now.
 I am eagerly awaiting the new All About Magnolia Challenge. I am tempted to enter the DT call.  I'm still thinking about it, but I don't know if my card making is good enough.... there are lots of big names entering.
The new Design Team are FANTASTIC crafters and because it is being run by the very talented Dee Dee, it has the potential to be  a very exciting challenge.
Have a lovely day

This weekend we celebrate Mothers Day here in the UK. My Mum passed away a few years ago, but Mothering Sunday is always filled with happy memories. So today I have made a card for all mums, everywhere.
The theme at TILDAS' TOWN for this week is
I chose one of my favourite stamps, Afternoon Tea Tilda,  for this card, and coloured her with distress inks and watercolour paper. The gorgeous papers are by Maja Design and all the edges are stitched and inked.
The large circle die is an old Marianne, the branch die is a Joy Craft and the card was cut using GoKreate dies.
 The lace and pearls are from Ribbon Girl and flowers from my stash.
I added a cute teacup and spoon charm for a finishing touch and a touch of glitter on Tilda's lace.
 So, Happy Mothering Sunday to all mums, wherever you are.
Know that you are loved.
