Tilda with Parasol.....

Hi there folks!

Sorry I haven't been around so much this week but I've had a couple of really bad migraines ( I am a regualer sufferer unfortunately) and I always feel rough for a few days afterwards. Also, I have another house viewing tomorrow so you know what I'll be doing today, GROAN!!! Housework on my day off, should be banned, lol!!

Anyway, enough waffle me thinks and onto the card...... I guess you could say this is an easel/ pop up card and I made it last night. Well I see that Creative Inspirations have chosen pop up cards as their theme this week so that's where I'll enter it. I've used Papermania papers and Prima flowers, plus one of the gardenias from Papirloftet. Tilda with her parasol has been coloured with pencils and glittered but I don't think the sparkle is showing up too well on the photos.

I suppose I haven't gone overboard on the embellies here but I really wanted Tilda to shine..... she's so delish, probably one of my fave stamps!

I'm also entering my card here:

Creative Card Crew - Cute and Girlie

Daring Cardmakers - August Birthstone, Peridot

Magnolia Down Under - Easel Cards

One Stop - Summer Fun

Papertake Weekly - Something Old, Something New.....

Well that's all from me then...... TTFN!

Hugs Tara xx

Oh, I'm sorry to hear you haven't been feeling great!! I get migraines too and they drain the life out of me for days!!! and now they stopped selling Solpadeine over the counter here - booooo!!!
Your card is soooo pretty, you really rock them Tildas, girl! The way you make them glow and all the beautiful greenery on your cards - total feast for my eyes!
Are you planning to move a house? That's probably a headache in itself!
