Tilda is off on her Holls!

Hiya Girls,

Another mixed day weather wise here, in the morning it was raining and the afternoon was nice, really humid too, I had all the windows open and a fan on!

I had a phone call this afternoon telling me the S.E.I Wedding papers I ordered in April had finally arrived (good job I was not in a hurry for them!!!) The order had been put back twice and at one time I was told I could no longer expect them. Out of the blue the shop rang and said If I still wanted them, they were finally here....
So now that means I will be making 60 Wedding Invitations for the next few weeks. I have chosen quite a complicated flower folded shape for them, but it does look very different and gorgeous made with these stunning papers, I will show you them when I get a few done.

Before I go off to watch my favorite film of all time (which has just started) GLADIATOR........(Oh Russel Crowe in a skirt, what more could a woman want!!)

I will show you what I have been upto tonight....

I have made a Tilda card. Not used a Tilda for ages, so when I saw this nice sketch over at MSL I thought I would give it a go.
The papers are all from my stash of leftovers, punch is one I bought on QVC ages ago (don't know the make, but they are lilac coloured), flower punch is NS and pearls are Hobbyhouse. I have used more of my iridescent sticky back paper, this time in pink. All coloured with Copic markers.

Fab card Debbie, lovely colours. I've just finished making my Sister's invites, but only 35 - but that felt like 35 too many and after all of that she picked them up and I forgot to take a photo! DOH - so need to wait for mine to come through the post to photograph it! Just the Order of Services and Name Cards to go!!! Hugs, Claire x
