Tilda Challenge

Finally for today, this is for the weekly Tilda challenge on DC. Had to use components beginning with T-I-L-D-A so here goes:

T - Turquoise, Thread, Titian Tresses(!), Thank You

I- Inked edges and Inked lace (to make it lilac)

L - Lilac, Lace

D - Die-cut flowers, rain Drops, Diamante

A- Floral Accent.

This wallet card is for another DC friend which I'm filling with Kerry Jo, Stamping Bella and some Tilda images. I used the Sultry range of papers from Basic Grey on this card - I love this range and the colours. Eloise Greengrass ( as the image is called - isn't the name great) is coloured with Prisma pencils.

Sunday 10th August

Spent the day making cards because I have to go back to work tomorrow after two weeks off! Two are for image swaps with two friends from DC and one was for the Tilda challenge on there.

Made this with a new stamp that I bought this week and coloured with watercolour pencils. Think the paper was a range from Chloe's Closet, bought as part of a big box at the Stitch and Craft Show at Olympia earlier this year. Love pink and brown together. Contains images for a friend on DC. And I've just discovered that I can put Cuttlebug embossing folders through my Quickcutz Revolution so I'm very happy! I have to pad it slightly with some cardboard but the embossing is perfect!

Card for my Bro- in - Law

Made this for my brother- in-law who lives in the Lake District and is in the process of renovating an old barn to make it into a family house. When we visited recently, he was busy building a dry-stone wall while the builders were busy on the inside of the barn! So sent this to him as a reminder of his hard work! (Much of the card is down to a lovely Do Crafts friend, Alexandra - she sent me Hamish in an image swap and I copied the wall from a card she had made - thanks Alex!!)

My First Time - August 7th 2008!

Wow, my very first post on my blog! It's so exciting. Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of the blogging world! Now I'm here, I'm lost for words so think I'll just show you a few of my recent cards to get the ball rolling.
