Tilda and Butterflies

Good Morning Peeps,

I should be on my way home now :o)

Today is Challenge Day at

Butterflies are the name of the day.
I have used #229
'Sitting Tilda with Butterfly'
'Once Upon A Time 2013 Addition'
An adorable set!!

I also have 'bought paper'
again today. It is from S.E.I
and is about 15 years old at least!!

My card stock is from SU.
I have used Pink Pirouette
and Chocolate Chip ( yum! )

I used a charm from my stash, as well as pearls.
The seam binding is from the Ribbon Girl.
The ribbon across the front is SU.
I used Doo Hickey Die
for the lace on the edge of the pink,
as well as the bugs ( butterflies for today )
Also a Spellbinders Die.
OH! and my brand new Corner Die
from Joy Craft - I LOVE IT!

This time I stamped Tilda
on my Cryogen White
and cut her out. I don't do that
very often as I am scared! LOL

Here she is close up:

Here is the inside:

Weather Ways

Good Morning Friends,

Hope only good things are happening
with you today.

You are not going to believe this,
I am going on holidays!!

Precious time with my Grandchildren
in Disneyland!!!!
Then spending time
with my dear Mom.

So right about now I should be
in the middle of DISNEYLAND :o)

Today is another wonderful Challenge
It is all about the weather in any
way you can think of.

I used a rather old image called:
Tilda with Umbrella from
Spring Butterfly Collection 2009!!!

For some reason I HAD to make
a card about rain.
I love the rain.
It puts me to sleep on winter nights.
I have wonderful cozy days sitting
in front of the fire with a 
hot chocolate,
and I love walking in the rain any 
time of year.

Besides which I had some
awesome 'bought design paper' to use LOL
Not digital for a change!

Here is my card:

Plain and simple today.

The paper is from
'My Minds Eye - quite contrary',
and it is years old!
My yellow and vanilla card
stock is from Bazzil.

I received the lovely charm as a 
gift when I ordered something
online :o)

The ribbon is from SU, as is my


I have coloured with my usual
Copics and I have used 
Crystal Lacquer for every rain drop
and over the puddle.

Here is a close-up of Tilda:

I doubt you can see the
lacquer on the rain drops.

Here are a couple more pictures:

This card is not a side opening one -
believe it or not this one opens 'up'.

The top inside looks like this:

The bottom like this:

The umbrella die is from
You can find it HERE
Can you see my 3 little rain drops?

You may have figured out by now that
I am on Team A for the Challenges.

beautiful work.*
