Sweet Tilda xxxx

Coloured with bad boys and Glamour Dust, just for a change lol xx
I thought she'd do nicely for Just Magnolia's challenge this week which is based on a gorgeous sketch by the one and only uber talented Bev

So this is my card.

I was going to do the image coming over the edge of the nesties thing which Rach did the most fabulous tutorial for, but I wanted her to have a bit of dimension away from the centre of the card, so I ended up cutting her out and attaching her with dimensional pads!!

Now I have to confess that the paper is from my mahoosive box of 12 x 12's which I buy in droves but hardly ever use cos I can't bring meself to put the scissors near them. I don't know what I think will happen if I do, but it's just one of my peculiarities - bless me, it is a shame!!!

However, I've obviously had a bash at this one before and have cut off who it is by etc etc, so no clues peeps sorry!! I quite like it even if it is a bit busier than the papers I usually use.

These fabulous blooms were part of my prize from the lovely Heidi from Simon Says Stamp. Bit of a hint here, whatever you do, don't miss PTW next week cos we have some rather good news!!!!

The charm is a pink piggy special which you can get from here if you fancy one :)

In celebration of my new MSBP, I did a triple, layer of them and then added some Glamour Dust to make it really pretty. The ribbon was from The Paper Mill Shop.

And that's it.

Please excuse the awful editing again. The pink looks a really funny colour here but IRL it is a really deep cerise pink and it's gorgeous. It looks a bit too red-ish here :(((

I'm off for a lie down now cos I have pigged out on a real treat tonight and I am stuffed!!! One of Richard's friends is into the hunting - shooting - fishing thing and he goes sea fishing a lot. He brought us 2 HUGE sea bass today so I cooked one and froze the other.

On my life, it was fabulous.

I did it with a bit of a Thai twist - lots of ginger and lime and garlic etc. It's a good job you cannot smell me cos I must pong a bit after all the garlic I used.

Have a fabbytastic weekend and hugs to all xxxxx

Dawny, this is lovely. Love what you've done with the punch and that dusty stuff is gorgeous. The ribbon looks perfect from where I'm sitting. I know what you mean about photos - I'm rubbish at them but can't see much wrong with yours. Off to buy a new camera!



What an adorable card Dawny, lovely image and gorgeous papers. Your super last night sounded wonderful and much healthier than my kebab! i have suffered all night from it with indigestion, that will teach me, my eyes were certainly bigger than my belly (or at least to begin with!!). Have a lovely day hunny hugs Linda x

All hail the MSP!!

Fabbo card Dawny. I don't think that shade of pink ever shows up properly on photos, I have never succeeded in my attempts!

I love the background paper, it may be busier than your usual but it doesn't detract from the image and although there's lots going on, it still looks really fresh and clean


Sharon Caudle said...

Jacee said...

Suzanne said...

This is gorgeous, Dawny. I know what you mean about the papers - my mum starts to sweat if she has to even THINK about using her 12x12's, lol! Once, she had 3 sheets of the same and when I wanted to borrow one she tried to talk me into using a different one, lol! Your charms are fantastic
