Easter Tilda.....

Yeah I got a couple Easter Magnolias in the mail!! I really just love this Tilda ~ she is so cute! (well most are LOL). I have completed 2 challenges with this card. The pretty sketch is from Sketch Saturday and the challenge over at Basic Grey is "all round". They don't want to see any angles.
I have also used the table and flower stamp from Alota. I am really loving there stamps ~ now that I am not afraid to mask! (LOL) Tonight I have colored in 3 images!! Crazy for me but I have found a great way to make it more enjoyable. I steal my daughter's ipod when she goes to bed and I dance (well bob my head) while I color. It doesn't even seem like work to me! haha. Anyways I think it turned out pretty good. I just think I might change the big flower to a slightly smaller one. What do you think??
Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: distress ink, twinkling h20's
Accessories: pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts, flower ~ Prima, glitter on flower ~ MS, ribbon, twine and button ~ stash


Well I best get to sleep. I have a busy day tomorrow with Doctor's appts. and a run to the mall. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a great Monday. Great to hear that you ladies in the U.K are getting nice weather! We are supposed to by Weds. I hope they are right this time!

Ooo this is such a cute little scene Kathy. Glad to see you got some new Tildas (even if it wasn't the spring kit!) & your new found enjoyment of the colouring bit :D

Alota are fab for Tildas - got my eye on the furniture set but it'll have to wait what with being on a stash diet! I like that huge flower as it is. have a good day! xx

Fabulous card Kathy! Brilliant colouring and masking and such wonderful colours.
If you change the flower you'll probably end up changing it back (I do this all the time). I think it look fine as it is.
Thanks for joining in at BG.

Hi Kathy, I love your card, so pretty and your gorgeous Tilda is so beautifully coloured. All that masking too, lots of work but so worth all the effort for this stunning little scene. Beautiful papers and design, love that big flower, I think you should leave it! ROFL re ipod and bobbing to colour, I'll have to try that one tee hee! Weather here is still wonderful, hope you got some by now. Hugs, Chris
