One for the Girls

Good morning everyone hope you are all fine and dandy!!

Today I have gone with a really girly card which of course involves lots of pink and glitter and, of course, Tilda:




I'm finding all my pictures lately are looking a bit washed out, IRL the image has a lot more depth of colour than you can see on this picture - honest!!  For the image I have used Tilda and cut and matted her using Spellbinders.  The card has been cut using a Go Kreate XXL.  I have coloured Tilda with my Prisma Pencils (there's a surprise lol).  The flowers and Crown Pin are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have added little butterflies which have been cut using a really old punch which I think is a Woodware one.  The heart is from a  Marianne die and has been slightly distressed with Shabby Shutters DI.  I have sponged some white acrylic on the cheesecloth behind the image.  The banner has been cut from a Dienamics die and I don't know who makes the sentiment it is an old wood mounted one but no name on it (probably from QVC years ago).  The papers are Wild Rose Studio "Candy floss" I have used two different ones but you can't really see that too well.  Stickles to the flowers and the border punch is Martha Stewart.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Spring is in the Air
Just Some Lines - Spring Cleaning (Items over 6 months - stamp, papers, flowers,butterfly punch, heart die)
Totally Gorjuss - Spring
Crafty Purple Frog - Pink and Girly
Do You Stack Up - Favourite Colour (Gotta be Pink!!)
Little Miss Muffet - Easel, Shaped or Step Card
Little Darlings - Colours of Spring
Papertake Weekly - For the Girls
Totally Stampalicious - A Bouquet of Flowers

Yesterday I showed you what Harry was up to in my craft room.  Well Louis, my third cat, decided to get in on the action:


He is one big mahoosive cat so when he sprawls out you have no chance!! But why do they always insist on  lying on your work??  He was a rescue cat and although he is a really big giant of a cat he is the most gentlest cat I have ever seen.  He never tries to scratch or bite you no matter what you do.  He never wanders away from the house and rarely even goes to the bottom of the garden only if one of  us is with him.  I have a third cat but she is the most nervous and neurotic cat, she was my first born and will be 16 this year but she is afraid of her own shadow and would never jump up on the worktop!
Hope you all enjoy your weekend whatever you are up to and hopefully we will all see a bit of sunshine.  Thanks so much for visiting I appreciate it and please leave a comment - take care xx

Hi Susan, Another beautiful card - I love the spring colours you have chosen for Tilda and you're colouring is fabby with those prismas and I love that card shape too :) Louis looks lovely and comfy on your worktop! We had a lovely white cat, Monty (sadly passed now) and he loved to plonk himself in places where we needed to go, they just "know" don't they?! Have a lovely weekend, Hugs, Teresa x

So pretty Susan, love the image and the gorgeous flowers, so springy...and a pretty colour combo....how does a cat or dog hair get inside a cellophane sealed bag??...does my Harry open the bags at night and slip one in??
I'm not sure, but it was not on the card when I put it in the bag, but a client came around to pick up her order, and what was in the bag, with a card...a great big black dog hair...NICE!!!lol..

Luv CHRISSYxx
