A work of heart !

Afternoon everyone... poor Suzie is having a stressful day today. The gardeners are here, trying to cut back the hedges from hell and she is not happy that they are strolling about her garden. She thinks she is a Rottweiler in a Westie body!!

I don't know what came over me with this card - I think I had a 'girly' moment !!

I've never really got the hang of distressing, but I am pleased with the way this turned out. I used Tim Holtz distress ink  on  the edges of my DP, around the stamp and on the little tags. I like the colour around Tilda, instead of it being just flat white, so I think I will be adding some inks to my list for Santa!
I cut Tilda out, coloured her with Copics and stickles glitter and paper-pieced her clothes.

Friday Sketchers - Aud's fabulous sketch (definitely a keeper this one!)
Allsorts - Bingo - A fun challenge from Mummylade, where you choose a row on the Bingo card.
I chose Lace, Flowers ( on my DP ) and Tags, but I admit, I was tempted to go for a Full**

Stamp - Magnolia, Tilda with Heart Package.     DP - Papermania, Regency.
Happy Birthday Stamp - Penny Black, Critter Party.       Stickles, Frosted Lace.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tattered Rose.   Heart Buttons, Lace, Mini Tags, Card Candy from my stash.
