Tilda-Tastic & Papers To Die For!!!


Hi peeps  and hope that everyone is well xxx

Guess who forgot to write a sentiment on the tag that Tilda is holding – doh!!!!!

Anyway, it’s Friday, the weekend is nearly here and it’s time for another fab challenge over at Just Magnolia.  This week there is a wonderful sketch by the very lovely Jay Jay …….

JayJay sketch week 41[1]

…………….. its this one and and it was a pleasure to work with it. 


And here’s what I did with it.

Now of course you’ll know that I coloured Miss Tilda with my old faithfuls and there is a teeny bit of the blingy stuff on here.

But what my crappo photography doesn’t really show is just how gorge those papers are. Those of you who know me will know that I am a real paper stroker and when these arrived at chez Piggy, I KNEW I just had to use them – like NOW. But I had a terrible job actually putting the scissors near them -  ohh it was tough. And it was a wonder they were useable at all after all the drooling I did over them – practically soggy they were lol!!

But I was brave and I did it!!!

They are the new My Mind’s Eye papers and they are from the Lush range. The damask one that I used here is actually flocked and is so strokeable, it really is.  I’d actually put it on my walls!!!! And it picks up the ink really nicely if you are distressing / inking up the edges.

I said they were ‘to die for’ and that is exactly where you can get your mitts on them peeps – from the fabby-tastic Tracy over at Dies To Die For. You can see them in their full glory here and you can also get a fine array of PMs there as well as gazillions of other yummy stuff as well.


Here’s where you get to see the dimension – and there is some here cos we don’t do flat as a rule lol xxx I’ve been at the Wild Orchid Crafts paper woses and the tulle again. And there’s another one of Martha’s finest on there as well. Ohh have you seen the new MS punches that are out?  Check those babies out here :)

So that‘s me done for today!!! If you get a sec, do nip over and see what the other Magnolia chicksters have done with Jay Jay’s sketch, and all of it just stunning. Have a fab day and a great weekend and don't forget Easties tonight – we’re gonna find out who killed Archie.

Dum dum dum dum dum.

My money is on either Jack Branning or Peggy ‘ger art of ma pub’ Mitchell. Or maybe it’s Phil and Peggy takes the rap for him. Or what about Sean Slater? Or Grant?

Dum dum dum dum dum.

If you think I’m sad, you should see Emma. Her office have a sweep going lol!!!

Tarra for now peeps xxxx
