Butterflies and Tilda - a perfect combination!


Hope you all had good weekends and enjoyed the sun? Looks like it's going to get a bit colder over the next few days  :o(  But at least with it being a bit cooler it gives us a good excuse to stay in and make cards, lol!!

Me and Mum had a fab day on Saturday and met up with Lisa, Pami and Sarah. The LOTV Colouring Masterclass course was so much fun and a good excuse to play all day (and get away with it!) I learnt some top tips too and couldn't wait to start colouring when I got in, although by then my wrist was a bit sore!!  :o)  Hubby and I had a lovely anniversary meal Saturday night and a long drive home so I could sit in my new car lol!! Even though I haven't driven it yet, I am missing it!! I might have a little drive today though, we've both got the hairdressers later (I love going to the hairdressers!) and then we're popping up to Bluewater as we have a wedding this weekend and haven't got anything to wear yet! Hubby needs a new suit and, well it's just an excuse for us girls to get something new ay!!

So onto my card and this one I've made for my good friend and craft teacher Lisa Baker. I haven't gotten around to inking up some of my new Tilda's yet so thought I'd have a play with them! Gosh the pressure of making a card for your craft teacher, lol!! What do you think?

I seem to have loads of cards I need to make this week so should be back soon (if I get my butt into gear that is, lol!!)

Have a great day everyone and take care :o))

Lisa said...

Hi Cazza, Wow this is gorgeous! I love this sweet Tilda and stunning papers. I don't know how you could bring yourself to cut into all these gorgeous Magnolia papers ;-) Your colouring is wonderful (the pencils really add that extra something). I am sure the 'other' Lisa Baker is going to love it!

Yes it was a fab day on Saturday ... I kept thinking to myself on the way home what a lovely day it was (do you ever do that when you've had a good day or perhaps it's just me lol!).

Glad you enjoyed your anniversary dinner.
