Japanese Tilda - To Someone Special......

Good morning everyone!

I'm so enjoying the latest stamps from Magnolia, some of the Tildas from around the world are just too cute! I love the hairstyle on this Japanese Tilda with the little flowers by her ears, lol!

I have absolutely no idea where my paper is from I'm afraid..... just half a sheet lurking at the bottom of my stash which I thought looked quite fresh and pretty. I made the leaves myself and the flowers are Prima..... and the lovely trellis you see in the background was cut out for me by my dear friend Chris.

I've decided to enter a brand new challenge with this card...... Seven Kids College Fund have just started a fortnightly challenge and the first theme is pink and dots. You can find the details here. My card has plenty of pink on it and there are dots on the Prima flowers and also I've added liquid pearl dots to Tilda's dress. I must just mention that it's well woth an entry because they're giving away a $50 voucher as first prize!!!!! And you have the chance to be guest designer too and would be working amongst some uber talented ladies!! I'm also entering this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge where the theme is 'Whateva'.... in other words it's an open week. Me thinks they might get quite a few entires to this one, lol!!! Finally, I think I'll enter this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge as I just love their theme, Sing It Baby...... I've chosen 'Turning Japanese' which was a one-hit-wonder for The Vapors back in 1980...... you know it don't you? 'Turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so'...... showing my age now, lol!!!

Well I'm back to work today so I must finish getting ready now..... GROAN! I'm so not looking forward to going back but bills must be paid I guess!!

Have a great day and I'll catch you later.......

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Lovin your colouring as always and the image is cuuuutteeeee!!!
I know it's a bummer to go back to work. As a word of consolation though - you'd be just as busy at home. Experience talkin' here!! lol
My boy is poorly atm so my commenting is gonna be erratic. Sorry.
I might take you up on your offer about Magnolias, I like the whole new collection except the club kit. I know, I'm weird but really not into the whole sailor thing. Although Tilda on rope with a ship window would look cool. Do you have anything from a Fairy Tale collection, btw? Those were ADORABLE!!!
I don't know what to offer in return though :(
