Flower Girl Tilda.....

Hi there, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I received my prize today from last weeks Saturday Surprise on Bev's blog which was Flower Girl Tilda, isn't she adorable. Thanks again Bev I've really enjoyed colouring her.
I decided to keep it very light colours and chose the DP from My Minds Eye Summer papers which are free with the August edition of Cardmaking and Papercrafts. The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. I used Oval Nesties and Martha Stewart Arch punch. The hat pins are home made and the rest is from my stash.
I'm off now to make a start on some more cards as I have loads of Anniversaries, Birthdays and Weddings coming up this month and next. Busy busy time and I'm still trying desperately to get the tiling finished in the bathroom, it's taking a lot longer than I thought. Hubby has done all the boxing in an false wall making. It's been one nightmare job as we pulled out the whole bathroom and have changed the layout a bit too. I have a picture of how it will look in my mind and that's the only thing that's keeping me going.......I've decided I'm getting too old for this DIY stuff...and the mess it
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my I think I'll go and have a glass of wine now. Happy crafting.
