Tilda Having Fun.....

Good morning folks and thanks so much for stopping by today!

I have been itching to ink up this sweet Tilda with her lovely parasol for a while now...... she's such a pretty thing! And I decided to make a circular card for a change as they're so easy to embellish and fill. The papers are Basic Grey Olivia and the swirls are from a Tim Holtz Bigz die. I cut some of the papers out to create the flowers and then added some Prima Hydrangeas to the mix.

Tilda has been coloured with Polychromatic pencils and then sparkled with Stickles and dotted with Liquid Pearls. I think there is something quintessentially English about this particular Tilda..... perhaps she is out for a stroll in the afternoon sun or maybe she is at a garden party hosted by the Queen...... lucky girlie, lol!

Well now I must leave you with that image of Tilda in your mind as I head off for work...... I'm really not in the mood today although I am glad it's Friday at least!!

Have a great start to your weekend and take care ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Hi Tara love this and you have described tilda perfectly. Hope the house viewing went well I sold mine 7 weeks ago but then it went quiet and could get in touch with buyers problem with financial adviser then they went on hols found a house but was told too hold off. Low and behold mine sold 2 days before i got word mine was all systems go. grrrrr nothing much about my area in my price bracket so may have to move further afield. Hope your goes smoothly stressful time.
