Tilda's Sitting Pretty !!!

Hi Everyone

So, did you noticed that I'd not been around ?!!!!

We've been for a family holiday in London.  We were there for a week and we had a fabulous time.  We saw all the sights Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Downing Street, Tower Bridge etc.  We visited Kew Gardens, The Science Museum, The Royal Observatory at Greenwich and The British Museum.  We also had time for some serious shopping too - Harrods, Fortnum & Masons, Covent Garden and Hamleys to name a few.   We were all really exhausted when we arrived home on Friday - It's a good job I don't have to be back at work until Thursday - my poor feet are still recovering from all the walking LOL!!!!

Anyway, the boys have been out in the garden all afternoon, so I made myself busy and created this card.

I've done a bit of masking using two Magnolia Stamps, Noble Tilda and New Year's Glass and coloured the image using my Copic Markers.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue
Saturday Challenge - What Are Little Girls Made Of?
Totally Gorjuss - Aqua


Stamps: Noble  Tilda and New Year's Glass
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Tools: Nesties Labels Eight with Sizzix Big Shot
Embellishments: Flowers, Brads and Ribbon all from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.
