I have made the image resemble myself at a young age with my bright auburn coloured hair and im sure my mum will love it xx

I love my doggy.......

she never fails to make me smile - each and every day!! wish I could say that about the kids hehe..
She has a basket full of toys.. each lovingly named...  she takes her time each day pulling a pile of them out and studying them, a sniff here a lick there and them BAM..the choice made she will run madly round the house with the toy of the day..  for the last few days it has been a new toy 'Moggibone'. this toy is a large pink fluffy bone sent so kindly form my good friend Moggilee from Docrafts. But today her choice was 'Botox' a set of squeeky inflated furry lips.  i never fail to laugh when her head pops up and she has 'Botox' in her mouth as it makes her look sooooo funny... so thank you Kayla for todays lovely smile on both your face and mine!

The much loved 'Moggibone'
a most beautiful 'Botox' smile xxxxxxx

all my Tilda cards xxx

thought it would be good to stick all my Tilda card efforts together.... im only still learning the art of Tilderitis but im getting there slowly.... i gleam inspiration from the experts online especially my own lil' bud on Docrafts 'craftingallday' lovingly known as tilderesa to me...
sooo heres my efforts so far including the 'natalies card' ive already uploaded....
made for christmas 2010.. i love this little cook!!!
a touch of the oriental... thought the willow pattern plate went great with this x
lovely ballerina tilda x those of you who saw kayla on youtube will recognise this one......
wedding tilda... when i was 4 i was a bridesmaid in a canary yellow dress.. so this is a tribute to that memory lol of nearly 40 years ago hehe..
posh tilda hehe xx this one ended up altered to be a 50th birthday card and was well recieved x

cherry tilda - made for a ribbon hoop challenge and was sent to buddy marleen for her birthday

get well soon - just sat waiting for someone to be ill isnt that nice lol
another made for natalies birthday... so noooo peeking nat or else!!!!
ohhhhhhhh yum cake!!!! - this one was altered and given as a 21st card

my most recent one.,... hopefully im improving..again for natalies birthday x
i seem to have made more than i remember hehe.. im sure there will be more like them to follow

natalies birthday!!

making cards for young girls is such a blast! you can do just about anything cant you? for Natalies cards i decided to go all out with some tildas.. this way i get to make the cards - give the cards - but still keep the cards lol! after all they are tooo nice to give away...
for the one from me i used circus tilda on her horse (nat loves horses). all coloured with promarkers using burgundy, crimson and red for the dress. the trim and shoes were later touched with glitterglue to give it some bling! for the background i actually used christmas paper as it was the right shade of burgundy and gold. i punched matching cardstock using the xcut leafy lace punch for the outer layers. the flowers i love and have a boxfull of them - they are form the haberdashery dept in a department shop called Boyes and were £2 a bunch for about 10 heads. i have a few different colours and 2 sizes and they stick down great a they are made of foam rubber!! - gorgeous...

birthdays are coming!!!!!!!

had a lto of birthday cards to make this last week or so with my sons 18th approaching along with my youngest girls 15th shortly after..
for Daniels first card I made a large number 18 as the focal point using coredintaions cardstock that i ran through the printer. teamed up with matching papers. the numbers were embossed and distressed.

next from his sisters i used precut decoupage from 'Fizzy Moon celebrations'(trimcraft) teamed up with paper from dovecraft 'back to basics II' paperpack to create these...

lets hope he likes them!!
