Tilda, Hearts and Flowers.

I got a chance to make a card last night when the kids went to bed so I decided to do a card for a challenge. I already had a Tilda coloured which I done the other night so I went to check out the Just Magnolia challenge which is hearts and flowers and it just so happens that Tilda has a heart on her dress...perfect! Then I saw the fab sketch at A Spoonfull Of Sugar which also has hearts in it so I combined them both :)

The papers I have used on this one are by We R Memory Keepers. The base one is all glittery but I covered most of it up and I used the other strip because it's a paper from the same collection and it has some blue in the pattern so though I would use that to tie in with the blue I coloured Tilda but I covered most of the blue up and the parts you can see looks a totally different colour here! pmsl, why do I even bother? I should just use plain paper lol. Oh well I know it's there even if nobody else does lol.
Moving swifty on, I coloured Tilda with Polychromos pencils and Sansodor. I thought I was getting a bit better with the pencils but now I'm not so sure lol. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I punched it out with SU! punches. The large heart is a really old stamp (1995 in fact!!) I bought it when I first started stamping from my local craft shop who used to have a second hand stamp box and I spotted this one in amongst a few House Mouse stamps (which obviously I had to buy too lol) and I thought it would come in handy for valentines day. It says on the side Darcie's Country Folk (whoever they are). I think it's quite pretty and it just goes to show that you don't need the newest stamps to make a card, she says as she pairs it with a Tilda lol, but she is not a new Tilda ;)
The other heart is just cut freehand from some paper scraps I had left over, the little roses are from my stash and the other ones and the tulle are both from Tabby crafts.

It's still snowing here so I'm not going anywhere! In fact I am going to sit stamp and then colour some of my new stamps that I got from Funky kits yesterday :) Think you will be seeing a lot of Sugar Nellie cards on my blog over the next few days lol.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please do leave me a comment if you have a min to let me know you have popped by. Then I can come visit you ;)
I must apologise for my lack of commenting this last few weeks, I been having trouble leaving comments and also uploading pictures on blogger over the last few weeks so I haven't been able to comment much, but I have been visiting and looking at all your fab creations :)
I think it's sorted itself out so I will have to do a mega blog hopping session to get around everyone today me thinks :)
