Anchors Away Tilda

Well I treated myself to this new Doohickey die and I managed to find a bit of time to colour in this image although I have been suffering crafty drought! I couldn't seem to motivate myself to get inky or crafty, but I gathered these bits together and this is what I came up with. Hope you like her!

Late! Di's digi challenge.

Where are the weeks going? I am so sorry but I'm late posting up Di's digi challenge. Well I have a valid excuse because I had to go out early yesterday morning and work as  a garage girl asssistant and when I say " bleeding brakes" that was what I was doing! Anyway, this fortnight Di's challenge is " Animal friends". Do pop over to have a look at the other DT cards as they are stunning. Here's mine.

I am also entering this into the following challenges.
Stamp with fun - Favourite colours
Papertake weekly challenge- stitching
Pixie Cottage - green and gorgeous

Help for heroes

Some friends of my family are raising money for help the heroes by driving an old banger from Calais to Barcelona. If you are able to it would be great if a small donation could be made to help them on their way. I understand that the car has been donated and that a supermarket is meeting the cost of the fuel, so all of the money they raise will go directly to the charity. It's such a worthy cause and I'm sure they would be grateful for any money you could give.
Many thanks, Rosie

Totally Tilda challenge. Happy Birthday.

I'm entering this one into the Totally Tilda challenge which is Happy Birthday. She has been cloured with copics, promarkers and Prismacolour pencils. The papers are old Papermania Blueberry hill and the dew drops and  faux silk ribbon are from the ribbon girl. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft ( Thanks Diane, some are from you!) and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley one.

Sunshiney moments

Woke up rather late this morning, or should that be..woke up rather early and could not get back to sleep, then consequently slept in too late to post up the Sunday CMLI challenge. Sorry folks! Anyway, my challenge was going to be " Sunshiney moments" and I was finishing this Edwin card off using the new Magnolia stamp kit. I have a few more cards to finish off today as I had a bit of a colouring frenzy yesterday! Here he is anyway coloured with promarkers. The little shell things were from the Early Learning centre a couple of years ago and they had been sitting in my craft stash for yonks. I still have  af air few left as well!

This is Tilda with butterfly dress and as she is holding flowers I am entering her in to the Totally Tilda challenge. Flowers are from my dear friend Diane, as are the papers, and the Tilda stamp! Lace, ribbon and buttons are from my stash. Tilda has been coloured with promarkers and copics and the punched butterfly is a Martha Stewart delight. Hope you like her!
