Totally Tilda Challenge Entry

Good Morning my lovely bloggy friends... it's Wednesday and that means it's midweek... Just a reminder that we have a new challenge on Friday over at Teddy Stampers... so there is still time to take part in the current challenge and on Friday if you come back for a visit, you'll get to see what the new challenge is all about.

Speaking of challenges... I am so loving playing with my Maggies right now and last night it was so hot, 37 degrees celsius, that I couldn't go to bed early so I made this sweet little card for the Totally Tilda Challenge, where the challenge is Fruity Tilda. You must use a fruit on your card, be it paper, an embellishment or Tilda holding a fruit.  I've used Cherry Tilda, she's holding cherries and my DP is beautiful cherry paper... hope you like it...

Is that paper divine or what?  I was wondering when I would get the opportunity to use it. Just love it, but unfortunately it's my one and only sheet....booohooooo!!!


I'm using more flowers, can you notice? LOL.... must start using them up so that I can purchase some more.  First time that I am showcasing the gorgeous heart ribbon... love it... my new heart-shaped pin... love that too... and my new Magnolia background image... so a whole lot of newbies from me....


As you can see, I have decorated the inside of the card as well, but using a contrasting DP and this time I've used a pink and white striped one.

And finally a close up of our little Tilda, coloured with Copics.  First time I've added some whites dots to those cheeks, but they didn't come out white enough... may have to get another gel pen.

Before I love and leave you, I am thrilled that my little Cross Stitched Tilda card won the February Home Page challenge over at the Magnolia Stamps Yahoo Group.  Thank you so much!

Thank you to the new faces I see amongst my Creative Friends... so nice of you to join... welcome!  I look forward to catching up with you soon.  And a HUGE thanks to everyone who visits and leaves a comment.  I appreciate it so much.

hugs Sharon x

Such a darling card, Sharon. Love that cherry DP......I'd cry too....lol. You've colored Tilda great. I use a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen for cheek dots. (sometimes I forget....like on my last card....lol). You can get them at Michael's but not sure where in SA. Hope that helps you.
