Autumn Tilda

Hello everyone,
Perhaps my card should've been winter Tilda, as it certainly feels that way!
I had a bitof a chance to play this afternoon,
 as Mac is going to a friend's for tea, so there is no afternoon school run!
I finally got round to inking up my Autumn Tilda ~ I've had for a few weeks, but not got round to using her.
xXx
It's my Mum's birthday tomorrow, so I've made it for her.
She's 82 bless her, she had me when she was 41, the age I am  now!
She does really well for her age,
 she has 6 children, 12 grand-children, 4 step grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren &
another great grandchild on the way,
She has a visit from at least one of the grandchildren every day & I think this has kept her "young"
she whizzes around the village on her bike, does most of her own decorating and all her own gardening.
I'm so proud of her & I really should tell her more!
xXx
Anyway on to my card
xXx

Cuttlebug Embssing Folder ~ Forest Branches

Catslife Press ~ Autumn Sentiment
Tim Holtz ~ Distress Inks

I would like to enter the following:
Truly Scrumptious ~ Sketch & Optional Easel Card (I have Rotated the Sketch)
Thanks For Looking

What a totally gorgeous card, and the little story about your super mym is really touching, she sounds so sweet and her age doesn't stop her obviously. Do you live near her?
I see my nana about three times a week, she lives with my mum (about 2 miles away), she is 94 on Christmas Day, we have the same Birthday. She is incredible for her age and is a sharp as a razor in the memory department.
Best Wishes to your mum. Debbiexx

Hi Fleur, thank you for following my blog I to have joined yours and what super cards you create. I'm haven't had the pleasure of meeting Lou yet as we met in blog land. There must be a good creative vibe in the Spalding area as all the cards that you girls make are stunning. I especially love this card that you have made, the leafs are so realistic.
Hugs

Your Mum will love the card Fleur.

I am so pleased I've seen it because you know me and Tildas and when I first saw this in the shope, what I said to Jancie was not repeatable.

I take it all back because what you have done with it proves me utterly wrong.
