Tilda With Watering Can

Good evening,
I hope you are all enjoying the weekend,
Don't forget we change the clocks tonight.

I have my DT card for MDUC to share,

This week there is a fab sketch to follow
I love this pretty Tilda, and I had to laugh at the amount of dies I have used,
Janice & Louise from Sir Stampalot said they can't believe how many dies I use on one card
& I think at 15 this one may hold the record  ~ So far LOL

Here's the sketch
 I hope you can join us

LOTV Wedding & some news

Good evening, 
I hope you are all well and not got tooooo much snow.
Mac had bike-ability at school today and we had to walk home in a small blizzard.

I have a wedding card to share tonight using one of the recent LOTV releases.

I just love their Wedding Stamps

I have made this card for my nephew, who is "hopefully" getting married on Saturday.
The wedding should've been in May, but his  future wife is expecting twins in July, and as we speak she is in hospital having bed rest! So hopefully she will be given the thumbs up for the weekend.

Alongside the LOTV image, Over the threshold, I have used some gorgeous new Noor! dies
Although they are "plants" I thought they looked perfect for sprigs of foliage in my bouquet.
I also love the cute little bunting, and have just added a bit of frantage to the edges.

I also have some AWESOME news to share.
The lovely girls from MDUC have asked me......yes; I said me! to join their fab DT

Well I can't tell you how happy I am.

Thanks for looking, and for your continued support.
I will try and put a little candy together as a thank you,

Thanks for looking.

Easter Bunny

Happy Sunday,
Hope you are all good.

I know I've said it before, but I've really struggled with this card,
I'm not completely happy with the end product & I seem to be struggling with my mojo again.
I nearly didn't post this card !!!

I spent a good couple of hours colouring in Tilda with Rooster & ended up binning her. 

I think my card is a bit brighter than I'm used to, LOL
I'm going up to my craft room in a mo & having another go at that rooster, 
Wish me luck. LOL

Thanks for popping by.
