New Tilda-Tastic Beginnings :)

Hi chickadees and I hope that everyone is managing to stay warm and dry in this snowy weather. Best stay in amd make lots of cards I reckon lol xxx

Well it's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Papertake Weekly challenge and this week it's all about New Beginnings. And we have a new sponsor as well, Tracey from the Stamping Boutique.

You can either make a card for a new event or you can use something new from your stash. I chose to use something new and this gorgeous Tilda was a prezzie from my lovely pal Marcea (thank you sweet girlie xxx)

I coloured Tilda with the usual PMs and this time there is a sprinkling of Glamour Dust, mainly on her frilly bits lol!!

Tracy at Dies To Die For has some gorgeous Magnolia products plus a fab range of Pro Markers as well :)

The pink stripey paper was another 'tidying up the craft room find' and once agaoin Ii have no clue where it came from or who it's by. It's quite pretty though, as is the Pink Petticoat Stripes paper which I used to make the black and white edging. Liz has a fab sale on at the mo - half price on selected downloads so check it out if you get a sec!!

The old faithful doily edge punch was given an airing as well.
You didn't think I'd forgotten about it did you!!!!!

And that gorge ribbon was from my lovely pal in the US.
It's still my fave!!!

I used a bit of Funky Fairy gingham paper as well.

And that's the old card done.

Poor Emma broke down this morning - or rather her car did!!! We're just about go out and try and sort it and we are hoping it's nothing more than a flat battery. Luckily it happened as she was dropping Kyla off at nursery and we were just down the road to go and collect her. So on that note, I'm off to get me wellies on and wade through the piddly half a centimetre of snow that we have here and see what we can do with it.

Have the fabbiest of days and see you soon if not sooner.

Hugs to all xxx

I love everything about this card Dawny. The image, the papers, the glitter and the ribbon - all just gorgeous.

You're so lucky that is all the snow you've got. Here, north of Aberdeen, it is the worst we have had for a few years!!
