Hi all haven't been doing many challenges this week but I managed to do the ATC for this weeks Tilda & Friends and here she is. The theme is 'double take' and have used the 2 flowers which are a mixture of prima and silk flowers. I used a K & Co background added a ribbon which I criss crossed and of course Tilda coloured with promarkers. I hope to catch up on some more challenges this weekend so please don't leave me.......lol. Hugs Lorraine x

The base card is covered with a brown paper/material that has silver stars and thread running through it I have also added some ribbon but its fluffy and very soft like velvet entwined it with a string of beads. I have stamped a Wendy Rhodes Art Nouveau image onto blue card with Perfect Medium and covered with Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder ditto with the sentiment and added two blue and brown Prima Flowers.

Hi all I have been given this award by not one but two lovely fellow crafters Beryl and Sandie. I am always so grateful when I receive an award they mean so much to me. When I first started blogging and saw these awards I never thought that I would ever receive one but now I have a lovely collection and it makes me feel so proud to have them on my blog so thank you.
Now I know that I am supposed to nominate 10 other bloggers to pass this award onto but that is so difficult when I think your blogs are all so wonderful and inspirational so any of my followers are more than welcome to put this award on their blog.
These are 2 cards I have made for my Mum to give two of my brothers whose birthdays are in March. I thought you might like a look and it does make a change from challenge cards lol. I have used the Murray & Ethel stamps again, one of my brothers is a very keen golfer so of course used the golfing image, the papers are Raspberry Road Designs.
