Tilda In Lemon

This weeks challenge at Die Cut Dreams is "Tilda In Lemon", i'm not a big fan of Tilda but I quite like this image. It was a candy I received from Susie some time ago. I love yellow but don't often use it, but it reminds me of spring days, when all the daffodils are out, it's my favourite season, so maybe I should use it more. And if you want to see how many different kinds of creations you can get using the same colourway, just pop by and take a look.

This is also for the following challenges :-

1. Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine

2. Crafty Creations - challenge # 81 - Butterflies

3. Crafts And Me - challenge 11 - Petals And Pearls

4. Flutterby Wednesday - ~118 - 1 part sparkle, 2 parts papers, 3 parts gems

5. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 30 - Summer fun (I chose to do summer colour)

6. Let's Ink It Up - challenge # 1 - Anything goes with a twist of yellow


Stamps - Magnolia Tilda, Polkadoodles butterfly stamp,

Papers - Gingham freebie from Bev, Papermania capsule,

Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,

Tools - Nesties, cuttlebug, flower punches,

Embellishments - stickles, ribbon, gems, brads, pearl all from my stash

My lovely friend Fiona, has given me an award, she is so sweet and makes some of the most gorgeous creations. Thank you love.

Now you have to pass this onto 7 ladies, So this was perfect to give to these wonderful ladies, but let me tell you something about them first. We started off as a blog hop and it went so well, one of the ladies Brenda, who organised everything so well, turned us into a brilliant challenge blog. Every single lady is talented, kind and make a fabulous friend. I couldn't wish for a better team to be part of. Yes of course it's
Sir Stampalot:-

Thank you girls for giving me such a brilliant experience, and lots more fantastic challenges to come.

But I really must say I am on other DT 's too, and hold them in high regard aswell, All my design team buddies are great and each of the teams are wonderful, so are the challenge blogs, but the reason for choosing this team is that we were all here from the very start.

Thanks for popping by and having a peek at my blog

Happy crafting

Hi Tracy

I'll just say a huge, huge thank you for myself and all you talented DT lot. You are a real fun gang and I love working with you.

Spring is my favourite season as well Tracy and your Tilda card epitomises everything that's fresh and new at that time of year. Every year I marvel at the wonders of Nature and how everything pops up anew.
