My Favorite Colours~

Hello Ladies, And a big hello to all my New Followers, it's lovely that you have joined me, thank you and hope you like the wee creations I come up with~

I had a bit of a spend the other day...I know I cannot afford it, but I just didn't care!! Well one of my "three" parcels (I know, I said THREE!) came and I had ordered this adorable Tilda. She is not every bodies cup of tea I am sure, but I just love her. She reminds me of a flight attendant (or trolley dolly to be un-pc!)

It's a bit weired because the thing I am most frightened of in the whole world (besides someone hurting my children!) Is FLYING!......Oh sorry...I think I just Fainted!!
I hate it so much it has ruined many a fabulous holiday. In fact I have almost stopped going anywhere I cannot drive or walk to. Two years ago I did the shortest journey possible (Amsterdam) I think I was in the air about 35 minutes in total, ~ and I made a right fuss, couldn't wait to get off. I was crying and could smell fuel and saw the overhead locker move....you name it I saw it, I never move either I cannot tell you what the loo looks like, never been in one!!!!!!

Anyway no more flying talk or I will have nightmares, mind you in my dreams I am always doing the FLYING. LOL

SO~ I was saying before I went off on one..Tilda, she's so sweet and I have Paper pieced her little suit, and wheelie case. I have used Pro-Markers on her hair and skin. I love my green as you know and I have teamed it with brown tonight. This green paper is Crate Paper and I love it, so bright and fresh against the brown. I have used an Inkadinkado sentiment, some Sweet Sassy American ribbon, and the lovely delicate punch is an Anna Griffin.

I am off out tomorrow night, it seems ages since Hubby and I last went for a drink. We are going to a favorite pub of ours about 15 minutes away and we go by train there and back, it's a lovely village old world pub with real ale. Tomorrow is Port and Cheese night, so should be really nice (it usually is). Not out late but it's an early start, and we eat curry there too, what more could you want...Well perhaps Johnny Depp to come in and sit by me!!

I love your trolley dolly and I think the whole card is totally delish. Great stuff. My Mum also has similar flight issues as you. She cut the circulation off in my hand one time we were flying together and my hand went a funny colour. Have a gorgeous weekend. xxx
Oh and thanks for playing at Sketch n Stash!!

LOL welcome to my world Debbie - I also hate flying with a vengence!!! I cry on take off, don't move whilst in flight, have only ever ventured into a toilet once and I hold onto the seats and brake with my feet on descent - I mean what use is that I have no control!! LOL. Fab card though and it is an adorable image. Have a great day and enjoy your night out with hubby too! Hugs, Claire x

Tine said...

Hi Debbie, & I like your Tilda and surely the colours you have chosen for her lovely paper pieced outfit makes her a 'trolley dolly' no longer? More of a passenger - can't think of an airline with a brown uniform. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers with this lovely card.

A fab card Debbie, I love her little outfit & you deserve a treat! I don't like to fly either ~ we mainly stay in the uk! Once I was sent home from work the day before we were due to fly as I was neither use nor ornament! I do hope to take Mac to Florida at some point ~ that should be fun NOT!!!
Thank you so much for your kind comment ~ I really appreciate it.
