Tilda Wearing A Head Wreath............


Good morning all my lovely friends, how are you all? I hope the weather is good where ever you are its absolutely glorious here again so hubby is mowing the front lawn bless him.
Took my step-mum to the vets this morning, well not her, her dog I mean!! She has a Dobermann he is the softest thing on 4 legs, he is gorgeous but he's getting old. Anyway she took him the vets & he has a heart murmer, his back legs are going & his kidneys are failing so unfortunately the dog has not come back it was best & kindest for him to be put sleep. He was nearly 16 years old he was the oldest the vet had seen in such a big dog........its so sad tho & we will miss him so much.... My step-mum is very upset, luckily she has 2 yorkies to keep her occupied a little.

Anyway now onto my card I actually made this last night & just put the flowers on this morn I've decided that I will do most of my posts in a morn cus then I get all the natural light which I love lol.
Well you read the title & yes I've done a magnolia card I have had this stamp since maybe last summer cant remember TBH lol however I found it yesterday & shamefully the packet was still sealed at the back oops.
So I thought I would colour her up............

Yep she is an oldie but a cutie still lol. I needed a fix with all my faffy things after the CAS card, wow I cant do many of them......they kill me....I had hair right down my back....I'm now BALD!!!!! lol.

Shabby chiccy kinda card. Wavy edges were done with me Crafters Companion 12x12 paper cutter.


Isn't she a doll lol & guess what I've even coloured her......oops soryy Painted her with Distress Inks....yeah get me lol........still need loooooaaaaads of practice tho, I really should start using them more!!

Took the piccy's on the little bench thats outside my ickle hobbit. The paper is a digital download from the Etsy store, I've distressed them & then inked them with Vintage Photo .
The vintage seam binding is 'Hug Snug' from the US & I've frayed the edges to coincide with the whole shabby look........I love this stuff!!!
The flowers & lace ar from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The stamp is of course 'Tilda Wearing Floral Head Wreath' from Sir Stamp A Lot, who might I add has a sale on loads of stuff so I'm away shopping in a min to buy some more bits for my candy & maybe a few things for moi lol.

Well thats it from me I would like to say hi & a big big welcome to my new followers big squishy hugs to you & thankyou for following me I'm truly honoured...
Also a big thankyou to all that gave me their opinions yesterday about my candy I soooooo appreciate it, I just hope you like what I will be offering.....
Well I'm off to make my man a cuppa then shopping. I'm not sure if this card fits any challenges as I really did do it just for fun.....make have a peekskie round in a bit.
Thank you for stopping by I will come see you all very soon I promise.
Toodles for now xoxoxoxo
