Pink & Lilac Tilda xxx

I'm not sure if I've ever used this stamp before to be honest!!
If I haven't, I can't for the life of me think why cos it's so pretty.

But I thought I'd use this Tilda for this weeks's Stamp With Fun challenge which is based on a lovely sketch by Tina.

So this is what I did with it.

It's probably a bit 'fussier' than I would normally do but it's OK and I think the papers are so beautiful.

Tilda has been coloured with my usual PMs and Glamour Dust combi.

Ooops I just noticed a stray bit of red backing tape from that 'once it's stuck it's stuck' tape. I didn't see it when I took the pics. Oh what a plonker!!!

More haste, less red tape Dawny P!!!

The new 'old fave' MSBP is starting to earn it's keep lol xxx
And I got those pretty little pearls from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port xxx
I thought I'd use up the last few blooms which were left over from Monday's card club. I am not 100% sure that they look right so I am going to take them off later and then decide!!! They are pretty though.


You can see the beautiful lilac gingham paper here. It's from the Nitwits Possibilities collection. Absolutely gorgeous!!



The floral paper is from the same collection as is the harlequin border which I resized. The big pearls are also from Creative Pastimes.

Now you see, this is why I don't think those flowers are right. They just look wrong here and I am convinced this card would look better without them.

They are coming off - my mind is made up.

Oh well, I don't suppose you can get it right every time can you !!

It is really muggy in here tonight and my arms keep sticking to the desk - very strange!!! So on that rather unsavoury note, I'm off to watch a few taped episodes of Dog The Bounty Hunter. You probably think I'm joking but sadly I'm not!! We love it in this house. My girls love Leland and in a rough and ready sort of way, Dog is OK as well. If you've never seen it, you are missing a treat. I'd recommed you watch it even it is only once. It does sort of grow on you!!!

But before I go, I'll leave you with a sneakie peekie cs Tomorrow is Willow Sketchie time.

And as you can see from this pic, I've been at the charms again.
See you manana lovelies xxx
