Been school shoe shopping today, always a nightmare as darling daughter has very wide feet and no interest in shoes!!! My last comment before leaving home was put socks on and make sure theres no holes in them - so why was she revealing a good square inch of bare sole to everyone when trying shoes on!!! Kids - love em but couldn't eat a whole one! Did manage shoes, trainers and some new socks and didn't need a morgage to pay for them though.

Onto crafty things now, I made this card last night and left it overnight to be given some finishing touches.

Using my Tilda with butterfly stamp again, Tilda is coloured with watercolour pencils. Backing paper is from Bearly Mine, ribbon is from Hobbycraft, flowers from WOC, Hobby craft and my stash. Tag is a Doo Hickey die, butterfly and doiley from Joanna Sheen. Card is finished with pearls and lace from my stash.
This is the inside:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday - Magnolia-licious
Cupcake - lots of layers
Just Magnolia - Happy Birthday
Bearly Mine - Inside out

  9. Carol, what a gorgeous card you have made here. Tilda looks so at home. Oh shopping for the children - yuk!!! My youngest son needed some new trainers on Tuesday but thankfully I managed to get out of it. Both what designer stuff but we'll pay for the basic and they can pay the extra for a logo. Needless to say my son had spent the money on DVDs that were to go for the extra bit for trainers so had to have ones within our budget so it was a difficult shop for my husband!!! Take care, kym xxx
