Good morning bloggers from a soggy Blackpool! Well the weekend has arrived but unfortunately it does not look like the rain will be shifting anytime soon. This is a shame because Emma and her friends are going to the Pleasure Beach today for her birthday party. I'm sure it won't dampen their fun but I feel sorry for her poor mum and dad! Max is coming to stay with us all day and staying the night so we will be nice and snug and dry with lots of games and frolics going on I'm sure!!
For today's card I guess you can tell by the title of my post, I have dusted off Tilda. I have coloured her with my Distress Markers following about three different tutorials on various blogs. I think this was my fourth attempt - you should have seen the others!!
I have used Wonderful Tilda. The papers are Raspberry Road from the Josephine collection - very pretty. I have used my Sophia's Heart die again from Cheery Lynn and also the butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die which I have used on pearlised card so they have a lovely sheen. The flower and leaves are a Marianne die and the banner heart die is Whiff of Joy. I have used another hand made crochet flower and a resin flower from My Crafty Heart (very reasonably priced). The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders. I have added some Stickles to the image and butterfly and the pearls are from my stash. The inside has been decorated to match and I have also added a birthday sentiment to the front but that was after I took the picture!!

Well I had to go see my dentist at 6:30 last night and I am now on antibiotics for a gum infection so hopefully they should start to work and I can get rid of this blasted painful mouth and jaw.
A big welcome to Nancy my newest follower! I will be back tomorrow hopefully, until then try and stay dry and take care xx
