She sells sea shells!! - sea shell Tilda for Simply Magnolia

Good Afternoon!
Well it's that time of year again! Logan has left home to go to Cadet camp for 2 weeks! And Robert has gone offshore for a week or two so I am all on my lonesome!!! :( ........ Oh who am I kidding I am doing the happy dance in my undies!!!! I do get a little lonely, but wow do I love, watching what I want, eating what I want when I want, crafting and generally having a ball!! Well ok I do tend to try and do a bit of a spring? Summer cleaning done, Sorry Jenny I know I disappoint you!! Lol!! I may even get some real crafting done although Mojo has been missing so long I think I may have to list it as dead! really not sure what is going on with afore mentioned Mojo it just doesn't seem to be getting any better, I do think it is linked to my health though, with my Fibromyalgia I just don't seem to have any energy at the moment!
Today over at Simply Magnolia We have my favourite challenge!
Anything Goes!
I couldn't resist taking one of my new Tilda's out to play!
I have used Sea Shell Tilda from the Summer Breeze collection, she is coloured with my copics, I have stamped and cut out some shells also from the new collection and stamped the wee Motif at the top. The lace is from LLC and the ribbon, metal corner and pearls are from WOC. I have used some frantage to give the feeling of sand.
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Tilda's town - Summer scene
Magnolia down under - favourite things - Magnolia, maja papers, lace and frantage
bearly mine - anything goes
lovely Hanglar only - Bingo - sparkle ribbon flowers
Dream Valley - summer days
deep Ocean - Blue
Well that's me off, I skipped lunch, so think I will have an early dinner and watch some T.V.!!

sunshine and Summer Wedding Tilda

Good afternoon!
Well today it is overcast and a little foggy here in Dundee! But I am not going to complain we have had more sunshine so far this summer than the last 5 put together! :) and I guess fog is something you have to live with when you live on the coast!
This fortnight over A Basic Grey challenges we have a lovely challenge for you!
Don't forget to use a basic grey product!
It has to be said I am in my comfort zone when it comes to my lovely Maggies! I have used summer Wedding Tilda, and coloured her with my copics. I have stamped her with Grey flannel memento ink and in the pic her face looks a little washed out! It doesn't look so bad in real life, but I think I may have to darken her features in future! I have used "Sugared" paper from of course basic grey! This is one of my all time fav's! the banner is my lovely La La land Die and my fav joy crafts butterfly! the flowers are cosmo daisies from WOC the pearls, lace and ribbon are from my stash!

Tilda's town - anything goes
Lovely hanglar only - flower power
