Heres some more pics of my Tilda card,taken in light from my bay window,shows the colour much better .
I really have fallen in love with these butterflies,I know I received them off one of you lovely ladies as a little present ,but I,m sorry I cant remember who. OAP moment ,lol.
They arrived as little pack of 12 foam feeling butterflies,I glued them on white card and added a bit of bling.got 10 more cards to do with them.






I like the simplicity of this card ,the image reminds me of Marilyn Monroe,lol.





This is ballet Tilda ,lots of extras and bling on this one




The bottom card has come out very blue,its quite pale really,I will post another pic later if we get some good light today.

A teenage card,love thus image,its another freebie printout,in ct I think I have printed the rest ,the background and the rose image are all freebies
In fact this card is very Monry saving expert.you can craft with little money,you just need a basic printer and your away.

A modern looking mothers day card I made last night.
This one is an easel card.
The backing is a Cath kidson free printout

I think this is quite retro looking with her 50s style dress.
I used to wear dresses like these when I was about 13 .,ooooooooh thats a long time ago,I can tell you.Was not allowed the high heels though,only 1 inch high ones.used to have a pony tail ,lol.

I liked the last Tilda card I made,so I made another similar one.
This one is an easel card for a change,will keep this for someone special as I like it
Tilds seems to be jumping out of this card
Should I outline her in black pen,do you think?
So she stands out more.
