Vintage Christmas Tilda

Hello everyone, well its halfway through the week already and not long left of the kiddies summer holiday now the days seem to be going by so quickly. The weather has been plop we have not even managed to get down the beach once in this holiday and there's a little spot in the New Forest we like to go with a little stream for the kiddies to play in and for the past two Tuesdays (nanny's day off) we've planned to go with nanny for a picnic and each time its tipped down so we've ended up having the picnic indoors on a blanket in the lounge. The kiddies think its fun but its so annoying when you can't rely on having a warm sunny day in August!!! Right I promise no more moaning from me.

Today I have another Chrimbly card to show you and I've gone vintage again really enjoying this style at the mo. I was going to do another one draw box for the card to sit on again but I don't know what was the matter with me but everything kept going wrong so I gave up in disgust and just left it as an easel card. I've used one of my favourite Tilda Christmas stamps from last year which I got from Sir Stampalot and coloured her with my copics and you can't see it in the piccie but all her fur on her coat has been stickled. All the papers have been distressed, inked and then stickled too.

I've used papers from last year's My Minds Eye Signature Christmas stack, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, swirls were made using a small Sizzix die, sentiments are Inkadinkado and of course loadsa pearls. Last photo from a different angle.

I would like to enter my card into a few challenges :-
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Christmas in August
Craftalicious challenge - Pearls and Swirls

Friday Sketchers - great sketch

Craft your days away challenges - favourite things (My most favourite holiday time)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - theme of vintage

Right I'm off now my eldest has just locked the conservatory door and locked his little sister out in the back garden and she's wailing like a banshee so I'm off to sort them out - wish me luck!!!!
Take care.
