Lemons Anyone???

Good Morning, 

Good news my Mum is out of hospital & doing much better, she is in plaster & can't really do a lot but everything is healing well so she is on the right road.

As its Wednesday its time for another challenge over at Midweek Magnolia & the theme is 

Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image

I coloured up Lemon Tilda a little while ago & I thought it was about time I put her on a card. I used distressed markers to colour her up & have added some wink of stella pen for a little bit of sparkle.

The papers are from the Romance paper pad, i have distressed the edges using a Tim Holtz tool & tea dye distressed ink.

Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop over to the Midweek Magnolia blog & see what the rest of the DT have come up with.

Hope you have a super day

New Stash

Good Morning,

I am running a tad late again with my post but after my Mum having her fall yesterday everything has been a little hectic here. My Mum is doing ok but she has managed to break her wrist & shatter her elbow so she had to have an operation yesterday afternoon to put pins & a plate in her elbow, hopefully she will be coming home today so fingers crossed.

Right onto today's challenge at Midweek Magnolia the theme this fortnight is ... 

New Crafty Stash 

I have used Ice Tilda & have coloured her up with Prisma pencils, I have added some glamour dust around her skates & to her bobble on her hat.

My new stash is the papers, flowers & the little embellishments in the corners. This is the first time I have used Ice Tilda as well so technically she's new.

Ok now on to the winner of the blog hop candy & that person is .........

Well done Jackie if you can email me at with your address I will get your prize out to you.

Well thank you for stopping by & please pop over to the Midweek Magnolia Challenge & see all the gorgeousness from the rest of the DT.

Hope you have a lovely day

GDT at TioT

Good Morning,

I am a tad late with this post but as I was writing it this morning I had a call from my Mum who has managed to fall over in the icy conditions here & we thing she has broken her arm. My dad has whisked her off to the Hospital but as she was out walking my little dog I had to go & pick her up. Hopefully I should know more about how my Mum is later.

Right onto why I was writing, I have been asked to be a guest designer over at Try it on Tuesday & the theme for this Challenge is 


It could be a napkin, something you have made  with mop up tissues, stamping on tissue etc etc.....

I have stamped this vintage car stamp onto some Tissue Paper along with the sentiment & have added some more tissue behind the layers of paper for a bit more dimension. 

As this is a male card I do find ti quite hard to not over embellish as I do just love all the flowers & sparkle but sadly most men I know don't lol

Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop on over to the Try it on Tuesday Challenge & see all the DT's gorgeous work

Hope you have a lovely day
