Midsummer Tilda & Another Award


Hi girls. Thank you so much for calling in to see me. I hope your visit is worthwhile. I'm beginning to get back into the swing again although I am still taking a while to make a card but I am beginning to enjoy crafting again. We are getting well into summer now although you wouldn't think it to look at our garden - it's taking a long time to pick up after the winter we had. We lost a lot of herbatious stuff.
However with the season in mind, I have inked up Magnolia's Fairytale "Midsummer Tilda Dancing" and coloured her with my Polychromos pencils. The paper is "Pretty Please" from My Mind's Eye and I used Bazzil as a mounting and contrast. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the punched borders. The handmade flowers are a departure from my normal and are my first attempt at making flowers using the tutorial in the latest Mangnolia Ink magazine. The ribbon and bits and bobs are from my stash. I am not entering this into any challenges. At the minute I prefer just to do my own thing rather than worry about complying with the requirements of challenges. I hope you like it and would love to read any comments you might have time to leave.
Another Award
I got a email yesterday from Tracy over at Country Mouse to tell me that she left this award for me when I was in hospital. William didn't notice it ( I just can't get the staff these days - Lol) so I was totally unaware of it.
Although I already have this award it means a lot coming from Tracy so I am acknowledging it now. If you are one of my followers and would like this award please feel free to take it.
Well that is it for today. I hope everything you do is a success and that all goes well for you. Stay safe.
Hugs,

  21. Hi Fiona

    Now I don't know how it happened but I realised I missed some cards! They are all beautiful as always, hope you aren't overdoing it. I see Kathleen left a comment above she said she was from Kinross and you immediately came to mind and the shop you go to. Maybe you have both been in there at the same time! I am so pleased you are going to do WOYWW next week, I can't wait to see your creative area.
