Two Summer Tildas

Did you wonder where I had got to, so sorry I have been MIA, but I just felt so tired yesterday that I ended up not even opening the blog, I answered a couple of e-mails and that was all I managed the whole day, but I feel much more refreshed today.

Well it looks as if the Sun is on its way at last so this week at Just Magnolia we thought we would celebrate with the theme of summer. Another great prize to give away this week and some fantastic Dt cards to give you inspiration so click Here and come and join us.

I think Tilda won the lottery last week and decided to spend a bit of her winnings on a luxury holiday, dosn't it look inviting. All the time I was making this card I was humming Cliff Richards "Summer Holiday" now I cannot get the blooming Tune out of my mind.

Really plain inside for this one.

Stamps - Magnolia, Stempleglede Retro Flower
Colouring Medium - Copics
Tools - Medium Retro Punch
Embellies - Ribbon from Bunny Zoes Shop

Lili of Valley are following the trend this week and the theme is Paper Piecing, the Dt have come up with some great cards to get you started so why not come and join us, It is not necessary to use LOTV projects so anyone is welcome.

I have used a Mary Fran download for Tildas dress and the last layer of her wings, and have used the same papers on the card. I love the combination of Pink and Chocolate.

Stamps - Tilda
Colouring Medium - Copics
Papers - Mary Fran Download
Tools Flower Punches and Circle Nesties
Emballies - Charms, Pearls, spacers from The Hobby House

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Hello, I love the two cards that you made, but I must confess that I have a slight preference for the second. I love the colors you chose for both. On the first, I particularly like the effect given by the sun and the second, I love the sweetness that surrounds it.
