Name that Tune ...

I will give you a clue, what is Tilda doing?
Give up? well it is 'Jump' by the Pointer Sisters.
Did you get it?

Today over at Passion for Promarkers the new challenge is titled
'Name that Tune' and as soon as I saw Tilda HERE I just had to use her.

I have used papers, ribbon, lace, flowers
berries, bells, charm, pearls, buckle, sentiment is CG, all matting, layering, shapes
including the cloud are cut on the Silhouette.
Hand stitched, image coloured in Promarkers and clouds created with TH ink.

Our sponsors for this challenge are

so why not come and play along with us?

So here is my card for this challenge, I was sent the Hollypond Hill fishing stamp set
for this one.

I have used papers, ribbon, charms, button, brads & dew drops.
The matting & layering, cattails & clouds were all cut using my Silhouette.
The sentiment was also done on the Silhouette using a silver metallic pen.

Wish ....

I loved making this pink 'Fairy Tale' card for the new challenge at
all the layers have been cut out on my Silhouette and then hand stitched.
There is a great feature on the die cutter to offset or invert the image which
I did for the round scallop matting and used it as a template to stitch.
I have also used the colour pick feature to match up the bunting and stars!

I have used papers, lace die, ribbon, charm, flowers, sparkles,corners, pearls, gems
and of course cute Tilda which I have decoupaged.

This challenge is sponsored by 
who have a £ 10 voucher up for grabs this week.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -

Have a great Tuesday, love x

May All Your Wishes Come True ...

Today I wanted to share with you one of my new Tilda's, Indian Tilda in fact isn't she
just the cutest? I wanted some lovely rich colours for this one and got to colouring
her straight away.

I have used papers, postcard stamp & corner embellishment.  
The feathers, matting & layering, lace border,
oval and arrow were all produced on my lovely Silhouette.
Papers were printed onto Craftwork Cards pealised cardstock and Tilda
onto Elegance Satin which is great with alchol pens.
The sentiment was an old digi freebie and the buttons from my stash.
All completely hand stitched, coloured with Promarkers and finished off
with another one of my current fav products Frantage!

I seem to have so many cards to make right now that have deadlines
but I have more new Tilda's to play with :) x

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
Tilda Town - Celebration Birthdays (I Won Top 5)!

Enjoy your Special Day ...

Today is the start of another challenge over at
'A Little Bit Crafty' and it is titled 'Something Sweet'.
I had this gorgeous un-inked House Mouse stamp ready for this one, 
aren't those little rabbits the sweetest?

I have used papers, ribbon, pearls, bells & the sentiment
has been written on my Silhouette with a white pen.
Simple layout for this one but I wanted stripes to depict a deck chair,
The bells for the sound of the ice cream van too!
Small amount of hand stitching and coloured with my lovely Pro/Flexmarkers.
The ice cream has a little bit of sparkle also.

Our sponsors for this challenge are -
