Totally Tilda #8


Hi girls. Thank you for calling in to my wee blog. It is great to have you here. I hope you find something to bring a bit of joy.
What a weekend this has been. Not the best healthwise - I've struggled a bit and had to spend long periods in bed. To make things worst, as many of you will know, BT lost all internet services in large areas of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England on Friday evening and it took ages to restore full services. I wasn't reconnected until nearly 5pm on Saturday. So I couldn't blog hop or leave comments. I am trying to catch up.
I made this card and decided to enter it into the current Totally Tilda challenge which calls for "Pink and Pearls". The image is Magnolia's "Romantic Tilda with Parasol" coloured with a mixture of Polychromos Pencils and Copics. The paper is Craft House's "Romantic Dreams" and I have used Bazzil as a mount. The corner is cut with a Cuttlebug die and the flowers are from my stash of Wild Orchid flowers. I have used a Martha Stewart Heart Border punch and used the small heart cut outs as embellishments. Everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and would love to hear what you think of it if you have a minute to leave a comment letting me know your views. I love reading what you say. I hope you have a great start to your week and that above all you manage to stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,

  9. You're speeding up again! Sorry to hear you lost your connection, we rely so much on it these days. I love this card as always, the way you have coloured her dress matches the background watercolour effect beautifully.

  18. Hi Fiona, how you're feeling a wee bit better today. What a gorgeous card, lovely colours and that Tilda is really sweet.

    That internet problem was a real pest. I had a DT card made but couldn't post it on the DT blog. But worse, when I'd had some time the night before I had partly written a scheduled post for my own blog. I had visions of a post consisting of an opening paragraph and no card or info about it. Luckily when I switched on about 7am the next morning I had internet so I managed to post the card and finish the post before it was scheduled for 8am. That'll teach me that sometimes it's better to take a photo at night and post it. You can always try to get a better one the next day!

    Take care,

    Kat xx
