Oops! Sorry Belated Birthday ...


Good morning,  I wanted to share with you the new kit available at 


just beautiful isn't it?  As you can see it is wedding themed but that doesn't have to be the case
as I have shown here.  Beautiful, beautiful papers, I love it.

Together with the new Pink Ribbon Tilda Collection now available at TILDA'S TOWN, with some of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer.  This one is called 'Speak No Evil' Tilda
and I have opted to have her forgetting a special birthday, oops!

I have used six different dies for this one, so here goes, lace, clock, bunting (from the Doohickey Club Vol 2), butterfly, post box & fence.  Also flowers, pearls, ribbon & doily.  Completely hand stitched (as always) and pretty pastels from the Promarker collection.
If you look carefully I have put a little envelope in the post box with the words 'Oops! Sorry'.

  'Christmas stash'.
Nice and easy this one using the Doohickey Vol 2 Club dies & super cute Tilda from the

Including the rocking horse, holly leaves, snowflake, mistletoe leaves & fern.
On the right here you can just about see the new Christmas tree die too.
Plenty of flowers, fir cones, GessoFrantage & sparkles.
