Tilda In A Dream.....

Good morning!

Firstly can I just say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered my candy so far..... your kind words about my weight loss journey are sooooo encouraging, it's like having daily therapy, lol! It seems I'm not the only one on this journey and i hope that my progress will inspire you too!!

Anyway, just a quick post today to show you the card I made for this week's Just Magnolia challenge....... Dawny P has given us a delish sketch to play with! I hope you can make out the elements of the sketch, as they seem to be a bit hidden since I added the embellies, but I promise you I did follow it, lol!

I used more papers from the new Basic Grey Pyrus range because I just love it! And an older Tilda too but one of my faves from Autumn last year. Add to the mix some Prima flowers, Sizzix swirls and a Tim Holtz ticket and that's just about it...... oh and not forgetting the lovely technique of edging everything with white acrylic paint which I learned from the uber talented Kathy!

I may be back later to add some challenge links which fit in with my card, but right now I'm off to work (double groan)..... when really I just want to get inky today!

Take care and thanks for your visit today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
