Prima Ballerina Tilda

Hello everyone how are you all? Have you packed your xmas decorations away? I did ours on the 28th, I needed the extra room for Payton's & Arjays toys lol. Hubster has got the outside lights to take down today though as we forgot about those lol.

Anyway I'm here today with a new stamp that hubster got me just before xmas. I love this Magnolia stamp & it will become another of my faves. I've got her coloured up twice actually as I loved her that much, 1 pink & the other lilac lol.
Isn't she soooooooo pretty. The papers are from my new stash off my santa hubby ;0) These are sooooooooo gorgeous, they are the new Pion Flower Frames, this one is 'Rosa 6x6'. I inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched them.
I've added a Melissa Frances 'Resin Corner' & 'Pearls' both were from MCH. The seam binding is a roll fom my stash & the button in the middle of my bow is also Melissa Frances 'Vintage Glass Button'.

I used 2 of the 6x6 squares to do inside, the top part will have a little verse on of some kind. Isnt that frame just gorgeous!!!

This gorgeous lace is called 'Madeleine' & is also from my new crimbo stash. The flowers are all from LLC & I added 'Stardust Stickles' to them. You can just about see the sparkle on them.

The stamp is 'Prima Ballerina' from the Little Circus Moscow collection. I coloured her with distress markers & added a bit of Shabby Pink Fran-Tage.

I've used Magnolia's Doo-Hickey 'Swirl''Butterfly' which I also covered in Pink Fran-Tage & MF Pearls. The frame around the image is the large Petra Oval by Marianne Design.

Well thats it for me, I've family coming for tea later so I'm slow cooking a joint of smells lush. 

Also my commenting will be slow at the moment & a bit sporadic, obviously my DT commenting has to be done. Do you remember hubster breaking his hand last year? Well its never healed properly, he has a big lump on it, in a lot of pain still & some of the swelling is still there..........he cant even wear his wedding ring. So he's in hospital tomorrow for an operation to try put it right which means he will be out of action for about a month. He's left handed & thats the hand he broke, I've brought him a pile of dvd's so help him not get bored lol. Obviously Natalie is a person job but I will have to do her on my own & look after hubster & usual stuff, we dont have carers or anything to help, Natalie is our daughter so its our job to care for her & be there for her. I will try to keep up as much as possible my lovelies.

Thank you soooooooo much for all your lovely comments they mean so so much to me.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah

Hi Vicky.
I saw your card after entering the Tilda's Town challenge and had to take a closer look. Our cards are stunning. Beautifully coloured and embellished. I have also become a grandma to a baby girl who was only 2lb 5oz when she was born. She did so well that she went home after only 5week in hospital. Isn't being a grandma just the best.
I am now a follower of yours so that I don't miss any of your gorgeous cards.
Hugs Sharon x
