Hello Tilda~


Hi All~

I am back again, two posts in one day, Hubby will think I do nothing all day accept craft.
I do do other things, but what used to take me all day, now only takes me a few hours, I can wizz through housework like a mad woman on a mission! I do it but I do it QUICK!! Lol.

Isn't this Tilda image lovely?
I think it is a Christmas image, 'cos she has a sort of Christmas image on her socks, but I have not used her in that way, hope you like the way I have sat her on a box!
I have followed the sketch on Just Magnolia, this was lovely to do, I also entered a couple more challenges, and they are listed below.
I have used my sewing machine again on this card, I am really hooked on this now and it's so easy. I thought it was going to be more difficult than sewing material, but it is acually the same.
In the 80's I made soft funishings (as my job) from a spare bedroom, this was pre-children, and I did really well, so I have always been good at sewing, mind you don't know how straight this is!!

My papers are a mix, some are DCWV Linen closet, the gorgeous spotty aqua colour was free in a magazine and it's such nice quality for a freebie. Coloured with Pro-Markers, flower is Prima and Hello sentiment and ribbon are from my stash.

Just Magnolia--Sketch
Polycraft--Stitching
Totally Gorjuss--Aqua

Hi again Debbie, this is fabulous, you must have done that housework quick today as the 2 you have done today are beauties.
I just seem to get slower as I get older.
