The Ribbon Girl ~ Magnolia Only Challenge.


And I'm back with my second post for today.

This time I have my GDT card for The Ribbon Girl Magnolia Only Challenge where the theme is
"Buttons and Bows".
For me this is a nice and easy challenge...I have a bit of a fetish for buttons and bows!



Ribbon Girl goodies used:


The image is Tilda With Daffodil Basket and as usual she's coloured with DI markers and re-inkers.
The papers are Pion Design Fairy Of Spring - I'm so sad that these have now been discontinued!

There is always a fabulous prize to be won, so head on over to The Ribbon Girl Blog and join in!

Thanks for looking.
Love 'n' hugs

Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 95


Good Morning my lovelies, I've got two cards to share with you today...yes two
First up, I've got a card for the new challenge at Totally Tilda where the theme for the next fortnight is

Tilda With Wings.


I do have a fairly large pile of Tilda stamps, but not many of them have wings, so I chose a stamp that was originally brought out as a Christmas image, but she doesn't look particularly Christmassy to me.
As usual, she's coloured with DI markers and re-inkers.
The papers are Pion Design Shoreline Treasures.
Sentiment from PTI.
A few pearls and a darling little cherub from The Ribbon Girl.

Happy Anniversary ♥


Twenty years ago today...It was a beautiful, dry and sunny day, and I was up in Scotland.
Just over the border from England, at Gretna Green.


The occasion was a wedding. A very small family affair of only 23 people, including the bride and groom, but I thought it was totally perfect.

20 years later and I still love the groom with all my


We've been so busy at work and with other stuff at home that I didn't have time to make anything more than a very CAS style of card.
But I made up for it by buying Phil a present I know he really, really wanted, an iMac (for processing his photos) and he bought me a bin. Now before you think that's a bit of a strange gift, I'd had it on my Pinterest wishlist for when my craft room is refurbished.


Cute or what? I absolutely love it!

And...since the boy went to Uni I've got no spare money anymore...he wants to eat meals, every day! And I'm sure there's some partying/drinking going on that I'm paying for.
So although I did go on the Internet and purchase Phil's gift, the money came out of his bank account.
Ooops! But I couldn't afford to buy the cable let alone the rest of it!

Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary honey xxxx

Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 94.

Good morning my lovelies.

Todays card is for the new challenge at Totally Tilda where the theme for the next fortnight is
"Over The Garden Fence". So we are asking that you use a fence die cut or stamp along with your chosen Tilda stamp.



I used a much older stamp for this challenge, Strawberry Yummy Tilda which has been coloured with the usual DI's. The papers are again from Pion Design, Vintage Garden Phlox.
The cute fence is La-la Land Crafts Heart Fence die, one of my Christmas gifts off a very dear friend.
15mm Ivory Satin ribbon with a little heart button.
A few pearls, some punched butterflies, and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.
