Creative Craft Challenge - Pretty Blossoms


Hi girls. Thank you for visiting my little blog today. I am so pleased that you have found time to call in and I hope you like what you find here. I am afraid that I haven't been the best of bloggers of late. I have been attending numerous clinics and surgery visits and with my new found freedom with my portable oxygen concentrator I have been out a lot more. To be frank I have been a bit whacked - maybe overdone it a tad - so I have been taking it easy for a few days. I will be back commenting later today hopefully.
I am entering this card into the new Creative Craft Challenge where the theme was "Pretty Blossoms". The image is from Magnolia's "You are Special Collection" and is called "Tilda with a Small Gift". She is coloured using Copics with the exception of her dress which I have paper pieced. The papers are all from Nitwit Collections of digi papers and I used a turquoise card as a mount. The flowers are homemade and the ribbon is from my stash.
I hope you like it and if you have a minute I would love to read any comments you choose to leave.
Have a great start to the week and stay safe and healthy.

  7. Hi Fiona,
    Another fabulous card and an adorable Tilda. Love the colour combo and those sweet fabric roses. It is so easy to overdo when you are feeling better in yourself. Take it easy. Blogger has been playing up all weekend with error messages, frustrating.
    Weather here is sunny at the moment.

  22. Aw this is really gorgeous, I love Tilda's dress paper pieced it looks like a real summer's dress lol. Lovely colours and the flowers are very pretty.
    Glad you have been able to get out and about a bit more, it must feel like you have just been released from prison but you really must look after yourself so you don't get run down again. I'm sure William is putting his foot down when needed he is a very good nurse/doctor/househusband!!
    Take care.
