Springy Tilda

1 Hi peeps and hope everyone is OK.

The cold wet weather seems to have beggared off and it’s another gorgeous Spring morning here today. Once again I think the card matches it cos these colours are really clean and fresh. Do ya think that if I use really warm colours, next time, we’ll have a heatwave?

Nah, me neither lol xxx

So over at the ever so fab Just Magnolia challenge blog this week, our theme is easel cards. I have to say that I LOVE these cards cos they always look like they are difficult and take ages but they’re so not. The only prob is that I really do struggle to take pics of them – I’m never sure which angle looks best!!

But nip over and have a look at what the DT have done – as you’d expect there is a feast of fabulousness there plus we have a great sponsor as well cos All That Scraps have donated a CC Designs Set of YOUR choice :)

So this is what I did and ‘scuse the wonky looking pic :(

I coloured Tilda with my fab PMs and added a teeny bit of bling. You can get shed loads of PMs from Tracy over at Dies To Die For as well as a whole heap of other fabulous goodies.

Now don’t faint but maybe, just maybe I am going to change what I colour with after speaking to Bev last night so watch this space!!!!

The papers are Nitwits – Hoppy Hearts – and I think they’re so pretty.


The lace and bloom are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I did the sentiment on the old PC which I have to say is being a tad silly again at the mo, so if you’ve been over to the Just Magnolia blog and didn't see this it’s cos I only just managed to get it uploaded and didn’t get it over to Bev in time.

Well it’s Friday and I think this last week seems to have gone really quickly. We are having Miss Kyla tonight so I can feel a baking sesh coming on lolxxx . I don’t know what she enjoys most, the baking or the eating the cakes bit after!!! Richard just hovers about waiting for any spare cake mix cos he likes it better than the actual cakes he says. It is a bit yummy but probably not that good for you sadly, but he doesn’t care!!!.

And I’m trying to sort out the details for getting over to Harrogate at some point but it is looking a bit unlikely at the mo. I will be gutted if I miss it as it is a really nice show so my trotters are firmly crossed!!!

So that’s me done today. Have a great Friday and see you Sunday if not tomorra and huggiest of hugs xxx
