Tilda takes a vacation......

Hi!!

DON'T FORGET THE SALE AT *THE TOWN SCRAPPER* UNTIL FRIDAY JUNE 19TH
Give Phebe a call or email and let her know what you would like :o)

Well Tilda is real tired of the city in all this heat and decided that now is a great time for a vacation. She is going to take the bus into the country with the hope of cooling off and just do nothing for a couple of weeks!!! I would love to join her how about you?? The only trouble is the bus is taking forever to get here...........how long does she have to wait?????
The DP is American Crafts - The colour of Memories. Card stock is SU Summer Sun and Taken with Teal. I used parts of the Magnolia stamp - 'summer background'. The grassy hill I made myself. Other stamps are 'Traveller Tilda' and 'Magnolia Suitcases'. I coloured with Copics, and did a tiny bit of paper piecing on her blouse and purse.


Here she is waiting for the bus!!



Here is a closer look at tired and flustered Tilda with her pink cheeks:



Here you can see her sitting on one of her suitcases:


Here is the inside of the card:
Sure hope that bus comes soon. It is getting late and I don't want Tilda out in the dark.......
Hoping you all have a great week!
Love Candy

Tilda can take her trip down here to Florida! I am just miles away from the beach! She is going to have to take a faster mode of transportation to be able to enjoy herself faster!

What a cute card!
