Purple Butterfly Tilda

Good Afternoon

I made this card over the weekend with the intention of putting it on my blog on Tuesday.  But in between packing for the move, looking after the kids and people coming around to look at the house, I completely forgot that I even made this.  So here is my card.

I am sorry today seems to be one of those days where my photos are imported, but it is not the right way up and for the life of me I cannot fix it.  So my apologies. I think maybe it is time for a new camera.  I coloured Tilda with my copics and then added some glitter to her wings.

I love to colour her hair with the greys and black copics.  I really need to practise to get the blond colour combination right. 

The flowers I used was bought at a factory shop that specialises in making handmade paper, the use all the offcuts to make paper flowers like these.  They are pretty bland, so I had to put something else on them to make them standout.

I am very exited, I bought some new Magnolia stamps last week and they arrived in the post this morning, so I cannot wait to get home to ink some of them up.  I have decided that this afternoon, I will take a break from packing and colour one of my new Magnolia Stamps.

Have a great day and please feel free to leave me a comment, I always love to hear what you think.

Summer Card

Good Morning

I would like to apologise for not posting anything earlier. My cards have been finished since Sunday afternoon, but I just did not seem to have enough time. But here it is.

I wanted to participate in the new Magnolia-licious Challenge, but only after I put my card together did I realise that I was thinking "summer" instead of "spring".  So after all of that I will not be able to take part in the Magnolia-Licious Challenge, but still it was fun making the card.  The Summer sentiment stamp was a gift from a very good blogger friend, Thank You.  I used my copics to colour in my Tilda as usual and then I found this handmade paper that fitted perfectly.

Then I added some plain paper flowers as that is so fitting for "summer time".

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.  Here in South Africa we are in the middle of Summer and believe me when I say that I am enjoying it very much.  I do not really like the winter that much as our winters are not very cold, so we tend to dress very hot in the mornings and then during the day when the temperature warms, we feel as if we need to remove some clothes.  So I will be enjoying the rest of the Summer for as long as I can.

Have an awesome day.
