Say Hello to Rocking Tilda

Hi there friends and family... well, I think Spring has well and truly hidden itself away or is it that Summer has been so rude to push herself in front of the row ?!?!?!?!   It has been a scorching 32.5 degrees celsius in Cape Town today and my regular bloggy friends will know that Sharon is not a happy bunny right now...  If this is a taste of what Summer is going to be like, I'm looking for a hiding place until the end of March... preferably a cool place... Any offers?

Whilst skype-ing with a friend last night, I managed to colour and create this little Rocking Tilda.  Shows you what can be accomplished when you're having fun... uh, we finally said "goodnight" at 2 this morning... Now that's really late for me, but then I'd had a little snooze earlier in the afternoon.

OK, enough jabbering from my side, not sure if anyone really reads the posts (I know I do!)... here's my sweet little Rocking Tilda... ain't she a cutie ?

It's taking me forever to type up this post. I started around 5.45pm and then Kendall called me to watch a bit of the X-Factor on telly... Wow, those contestants are better than the kids that try out for Idols.  I read on the internet that ol' Lee DeWyze's recording company cancelled his contract... The poor SA kids that win are hardly ever heard of again... they just keep repeating their winning song over and over again, that it starts working on your nerves!  Where's Jason Hartman today and the girlie that was supposed to have won with him, can't even remember her name... just shows!  Enough chit chat... don't want to bore you all now ! ;)

Here's another angle of the same card.

Welcome to some new followers, always nice seeing new faces.  Am so pleased that you found something worthwhile on my blog to make you join... thank you kindly!

Well, that's it from me.  Happy crafting and thanks for popping by,  I really appreciate your visits and most of all, your comments.  Hugs Sharon x

It's just so hard for me to think of you going into summer - and we're heading to winter! Um....oh well.
LOVE this little Tilda and all the blue gingham. So very cute.
(I'm glad it was you up at 2:00 a.m. and not me! Yikes - but know that was fun)

LOVE your card my friend. Wow, 2am, that is a marathon Skype session, I have been going to bed early. I was lying reading a mag in bed on Saturday night, and my eyes kept closing, so I turned off the light at 8:30pm LOL! It was a gorgeous day here yesterday, sunny and bright, but not too hot yet. Hope you have a good week, the boys are back to school today :( so the rushing around begins, 4th term is always CRAZY!!! Sending love xx
