Sentimental Sundays & Stamptacular Sunday #72 & Totally Tilda #3


Hi girls, thanks for calling in to my blog today. I hope you like what you find. Hopefully you have something exciting lined up for the weekend. We are expecting our eldeast son and family to arrive tomorrow for a week's holiday so we are really looking forward to that. My daughter-in-law Sarah (Lil-paper-pixie) will no doubt be straight into my craft room so I'll have to do a quick stocktake Lol. It's also my youngest son's birthday on Sunday.
I made this card for entering into three challenges. Sentimental Sundays where the rquirement was ribbon or lace plus a sentiment, Stamptacular Sunday who wanted buttons and bows and Totally Tilda where the required element was stitching. I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Flowing Hair" and coloured her with my Copic Ciaos and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are SEI's Winter Song - Crystal Arabesque. The flowers are a mixture of handmade flowers and bought flowers and the sentiment is cut on my Cricut Expressions out of silver mirra board having merged the lettering using Cricut Design Studio.
I really hope you like this card enough to leave me a comment telling me what you think. I appreciate your time and thank you for your visit.
Today is the last day of Teri's Digi Freebie giveaway over at Delicious Doodles so get on over there to pick up today's goody by clicking on the advert in my sidebar.
Take care and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
