Good Morning ,Welcome to another Crafty boots challenge.
This fortnights theme  Bowtastic has been chosen by the lovely
Stephanie - Emma

For this card I used Whimsy wee stamp Sweet Blossom ,I think she is such a pretty
image and was a pleasure to colour. The papers are Nitwits, I used some seam
binding ribbon for my bow and spellbinder posy patch die for the flower, and
not forgetting copics and prisma pencils for colouring.
Sorry I haven't been bogging much but as much as I love to see the
sun I'm not a sun lover and it does funny things to me like making me want
to clean, sort cupboard out e.t.c lol,also I try to stay indoors as much as possible
as the sun don't like me either and I come out in itchy red blistery spots .Sorry
moan over now lol.
Hope you can join us in this fun challenge and do pop over to see what
fab creation the Dt ladies have come up with.

Ahoy Tilda

Good evening , I would like to share the notebook I altered.
I stared this yesterday morning around 10am and finished at 6pm only
stopping for lunch. I thought it wouldn't take long as I have done these before
how wrong was lol. First I couldn't get Tilda where I wanted her and 2 A4 card stock
later I was finally happy then I lost the binding and couldn't put it back together
I think it was doomed from the start.

                                                 Please click on picture as it's not so blurry

I have a new favourite die Cheery Lynn alphabet die . I ordered this on Friday
from Dies to die for and was so happy when it arrived yesterday morning :)
I wasn't to sure about this die when I placed me order as it wasn't the one I really
wanted , but I am so glad I did as I really LOVE it.
The image is Ahoy Tilda which is from the lovely people at The glitter pot, who
have a fab 25% sale on a lot of the new magnolia stamps, I do love this shop
such fab and very friendly service .It is coloured in using Copics  and Prismas
The dies used are Doohickey Tilda's lace, Doohickey Flag and cloud, and not
forgetting  Cheery Lynn alphabets. The papers are Raspberry road designs, buttons
charm and ribbon from me stash . I hope my boo boo don't show to much as
I stuck my inky finger on the image ,after hours of work I could have cried ,I tried
to wipe it but the card is marked ,so I hope it don't show to much.
Many thanks for popping by my blog .

Summer Flower Tilda

Good afternoon ,well our sunshine didn't last long here 1 day and then
back to rain , never mind perfect weather to stay indoor and do some crafting .
For this card I used one of the Magnolia summer memories stamps , I thought her
flower petal dress was so adorable. I tried to keep it bright and cheerful
to remind me of nice warm sunny days .

I pierced some of the layers and the cloud ( not sure if its just me ,but there is
something therapeutic about sitting there just poking holes ) some of the other
layers I machine stitched. Not sure about the double bow tho I sat there for nearly
an hour trying to do it and that's as good as I could get it :(
The image was coloured using Copics and Prisma pencils
