Hi there!

All of my boys are out fixing the garden. Cutting down trees and cutting grass while I am here by the computer. I start to cry when the grass gets a cut. Oh no! It's not by choise, I'm allergic to it. But at least I get some computer time because of it. :)

I started this card well the image colouring for last weeks challenge at PFP but got sick and never finished more than this "Lady Tilda". How ever the theme this week at PFP is "Pink Birthday" so I'm happy to use her for this week instead. The sketch comes from Just Magnolia and it's really nice and easy to work with. We all love those don't we? The sentiment stamp is from LOTV. DP are from the Tilda range Flowergarden of Panduro. I just couldn't help myself but had to put a tiny bit of green in to the card, to catch the colour of the rose leaves Tilda has in her hand. Also a tiny piece of pearl string and some dew drops from Bunny Zoe.

The ribbon is bought at Wild Orchid Crafts in white. Always buy in white and the colour the ribbon in with my promarkers to get a good match to the rest of the card.

I see that Tilda looks a little pale on the picture here. I probably did something to the poor thing when I edited the photo. IRL the colours are much closer, and not so much shadows around Tilda either. The light is really strange outside today. Sun, rain, wind, cloudy... a real fall day. I really need to learn how to take good pictures of my cards.

My flower kind of got showered in glitter glue with a little help of one of my sons, Willy. He was only helping and managed to get a half bottle of glitter out on the flowers before I could say stop. Well he is proud of his work and why not go a little crazy with the glitter every now and then? I do have removed quite a bit of it. Does that show? :)

After that I gave him a couple of card bases and a ton with stickers to play with. He has done a few creations by now and says we have to go and get some more stickers as he needs to finish his cards. Then he added maybe some glitter too?

Have a good eve!

Cute story about the grass Marie, I am allergic too and DH is gone until the 18th so I had to cut it the other day. I think it's the first time in 16 years and boy oh boy I was on the allergic medicine! Your card is so pretty, I love this little Tilda and she's glowing in pink!
