Tilda Tues

Aploogies to you all for the abscence of Tilda last week.

I was up to my eyeballs in prepping for a weekend of classes and the time just ran away with me. I'm late again today and once more its down to class prep. I promise after today to get back on track.

Todays Tilda is by the very talented Kim over at magnolia Cards by Kim Piggot. She has some amazing images but I loved this one which oozes the summer feeling that has been with me all day here in Mablethorpe.

There is definitely something about the sun which lifts the mood and makes everything all right with the world. If only we could bottle it and take a little every morning!

Family Friday....

Or as it really shoud be called Family feud day!

The girls are all at each others throats over the bathroom again this morning. Its always nice to wake up to the sound of shouting!!!

Cailey (my youngest daughter) is off on a sleepover tonight followed by her first unaccompanied trip into town on sat!!! I'm a bag of nerves just thinking about it but you have to let them spread their wings sometime I guess.

Caitlin did really well in one of her pre GCSE tests yesterday. Chemistry is not the easiest subject but she was only 1 mark off an A grade. Well done you x

I promise to get a photo of them all to show you but it's like herding cats at the best of times let alone when they know it may go public!!!

Someone who's not shy when it comes to the lens is my gorgeous other half....

Need I say more???
 This was taken on a night out while he was working in the States. They were invited by some locals to come to a "Pimps and Ho's" Party. Never one to do the expected the Nutty one decided to go as a Ho. Work that handbag girlfriend lol.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Tilda Tues...

Morning all...

Boy am I in need of this little cutie this morning...
She was beautifully coloured by Patti Jo over at PJSDesigns and is just the thing to make you smile when feeling a little off colour.

I woke up feeling rough today with the dreaded "itchys" back. For those of you who don't know I have had unexplained hives for the last 2 yrs which are soooooo itchy I just want to peel my skin off . I had been on very strong meds until just recently when the consultant decided it was time to try a spell without them. All was going well untill the last couple of days but now they are back!

Arghhhhhh........ As much as I don't like injections  I just wish there was one to take the itchys away once and for all and I really wouldn't mind if Nurse Tilda was the one behind the needle. After all who can be scared with that little cutie helping you out.

Hope you are all well and this is the only nurse you see for a long while.

Tilda Tues...

Spring has sprung!

The daffodils are starting to show themselves in the front garden and when I got up this morning it was daylight outside. So much nicer to get up and see light instead of having to turn all the house lights on don't you think?

I found this lovely card over at Scrapping with Lisa and it just fits how I'm feeling today.

I hope you are all feeling a "spring in your step" today.

Family Friday

Here we are again and what a week for the Nutty family this week.
 The Nutty one celebrated his birthday on Tues with a fairly quiet day and then went off to lifeboat training in the eve. The girls and I rushed around while he was out and got a lovely dinner ready as well as blowing up balloons and covering the table with confettii.
When he came home we were all hiding in the kitchen in the dark with just the candles lit on his cake. He was a surprised bunny to say the least! Unfortunately I forgot to have the camera ready in all the rush so no pics, sorry.

I do have a couple of pics of his cards to show you. The first is from Caiden, very apt as we have nicknamed him monkey from day one.
 Look how well he colours in the lines. Not bad for almost 2 lol.

And this one is from me...
The idea came from a friend who sent me a link to a you tube video. I loved this little guy and couldn't resist. I think the Nutty one liked him too! I will post a link to the video just as soon as I can find it (brain like a sieve at the mo).

Finally I couldn't resist showing you a pic of the Nutty one with Caiden.
Yep, yet again the little monkey is up to tricks. this time he found it hysterical to be swung about in a hessian bag! The Nutty one found it just as funny too lol. When will these two ever grow up???

In love....

..... with my own creation that is.

Is it even allowed to be SO proud of something you have created that you can't stop looking at it???

Well I am and for probably the first time ever I can truely say I am 100% happy with my work.

Normally I am content with my work but there is usually a "next time I'll try this" floating around in my head, something which I know you fellow crafters will relate to.

But not today.....

Today is a "empty head - not going to change a thing" kind of day.

This tag was made for a couple of challenges. The first over at The Ribbon Girls Blog, a colour challenge to use brown, pink and cream. The second over at Just Magnolia to create a tag.
I had an idea in my head of how I wanted it to turn out which usually means that it will look nothing like my image but today both head and hands worked together and I got what I imagined.

Ok time to stop gushing and move on to the next challenge....... (maybe one more little peek lol)

Tilda Tues

Another Tuesday, Another Tilda....

This time its Dreamy Tilda and my favourite colour green! I really loved colouring this image and was very pleased with my blending especially on her top.

I'm getting the hang of colouring with Copics now and they really do help you achieve a beautiful image.

I had a blast in Italy and Jeannie very generously let me stamp up as many of her Magnolias as I wished so I have lots of colouring to keep me busy. That said it didn't stop me buying a few more this morning when I found a half price sale!!! Good job most were sold out or it could have been a very expensive morning lol.

I hope you are all having fun with your crafting.
