Sitting Tilda from the Magnolia Fall Kit - ABC Challenge 'D' is for.....































Hi folks!

It's been a few days - I'm really sorry but I have been uber busy at work and have been working on things which needed to be posted before being shown here. Hopefully everything I sent yesterday has now arrived so I'll start by showing you this card I made for Rowena to send with the blog candy she won. I couldn't resist inking up another Tilda from the Magnolia Autumn kit and also stamped out the floral arch twice to create a circle for her to sit in. It's no mean feet getting those two arches lined up you know and numerous bits of card ended up in the bin!!























I coloured the image with Polys and used some yummy embossed paper from one of the new LLB ranges. The leaves are from my trusty Sizzix die and the flowers are Prima Hydrangeas. The doily, ric rac and flat pearls are from my stash. I like the Summery feel of this card but I think things will be starting to turn much more Autumnal now as I'm about to dive into my new Basic Grey pads I received today from The Craft Emporium, YAY! Apologies for the bright colours in the piccie - I think I was a bit heavy handed with the colour boost option in my editing programme, lol!!

I'm entering my card into the fab ABC Challenge where this week we have 'D' is for die cuts........ my trusted Sizzix leaves fit this category very nicely!

I hope you've had a sunny day today, seems we're getting a bit of an Indian Summer at last - good news if you're like me and don't fancy putting your heating on yet ;o)

Take care and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs Tara xx

Tara I just love this card, so gorgeous I cannot quit looking at it!
But you know what I really admire when you show your cards? The fact that you set a stage for them. I am so impatient I have a hard time with that sort of thing.
Great job!
