Cross Stitch Tilda and an Award

Good evening all... gosh, today was one of those hectic spring-cleaning days.  I thought I would be crafting, but noooo... it turned out to be a major spring-clean day in my home. Not that I was doing any of the work mind you, but supervising is just as exhausting you know...LOL!

But, I did promise that I would be making some cards, so come hell or high water, here's my newish little Cross Stitched Tilda again (love her!) and this time she's in blue... (here she is in pink). 

The paper is bits and pieces from current stash.  The sentiment is new from Merrypak. Tilda is coloured with Copics. The ribbon is also new from Creative Talent and the lace is also new from Paola. See... I'm using more of my flowers and I still have stacks left... LOL



Used some dimension glaze on her pocket and bows, thought you could pick it up on this pic, but doesn't seem so.

I like finishing the inside of the card as well... used some blue gingham paper and added a strip of white in the centre for the message.  It's plain, but effective, just finishes a card off nicely.

Thanks to Iulia for the Versatile Blogger Award, I am thrilled to receive it.  She is one of the lovely people I have met through the Magnolia-licious group.  If you haven't visited her blog yet, please do, her creations are stunning!


I need time to think about whom to share this with, so watch this space...  If I don't click Publish Post now, then it'll be Sunday... so here's a very hurried cheerio for now, hugs Sharon x
