Pie Tilda

Hello friends

Yes, I know the weekend is almost upon us again and I've been rather quiet.  Being back at work there just seems to be no time to sit and craft, as I am absolutely exhausted in the evenings.  Also, my dear Mom is in the process of selling her house and will be moving into a stunning retirement home, which I can virtually see from my bedroom window.  As you can imagine, a LOT of organising for me to do, as she moves in on 1 May.  This is going to be a hectic month for me.  My sister and her hubby are arriving next weekend to assist with some packing, which will help.

I received this stunning new paper pad in the post today.  Me to You, Spring Chic, a 6x6 double-sided paper pack and I just had to use some of them.  Thanks to Merle, owner of a new store in SA which I've just discovered, The Scrap and Card Boutique, for her excellent service.

Now, you must agree, that is soooooo pretty!!!  I just have to get another one as it's double-sided and both sides of the papers are gorgeous.

This cute little Pie Tilda has been sitting on the fence for a few days now and she was actually coloured to match another set of papers, but when this paper pack arrived, I just knew she'd match it too. 

I am entering this card into the Magnolia Midweek Challenge.  They have a super colourful pic for you to use as inspiration.

Thanks so much for popping by.  If you're going away for the Easter weekend, drive safely!
