Joyful Tilda......


Before I talk about my card can I just say once again that your entries to my candy are brilliant, thank you! I am laughing so much at your comments because, just like me, you all have your yummy foods you miss!!! You've had me licking my lips and salivating a few times I can tell you, not so good for the willpower, lol! It's been lovely reading your shared experiences so please keep them coming..... thanks again!

So my festive Magnolia card shows one of the older Tilda as I'm having fun ploughing through my collection. The only thing I was thinking about this sweet little Tilda is that her knees must get a bit cold when it snows...... and it's pretty obvious who stole grandma's teacosy, lol!!

I've used gorgeous Memory Box Mistletoe papers and lots of Prima flowers on my card, plus a few punched snowflakes and some large pearls. Because I masked quite a few stamps for the image I tried to hold back from overcrowding my card because the stamps tell a nice story don't you think..... I so love the lampost!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

ABC - D For Distressing

Sir Stampalot - All Distressed

Quixotic - How Does Your Garden Grow? (Memory Box papers to qualify)

Enjoy your day and have fun ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
