Hi all, before I get onto my card I want to thank everyone for their lovely comments on my last post it was wonderful to read them and to repay your kindness I have visited and admired the beautiful work you have created, your creativity is certainly working for me as I have been inspired by you so much.
Once again I have been digging around in my boxes full of stamps, some recent but most of them are ages old, most remain uninked so I am trying to rectify that, lol.
My card features one of my older Tilda's and a more recent stamp of Edwin in Miami, I do not have many stamps of Edwin but I will try to get some of him for my stash.
I have used a white 6x6 scalloped card, the papers are Websters Pages, I have never used these before, I cut a circle with my XCut cutter then used a heart from a set of Ippity stamps that I bought a few years back.  I used SU Melon ink to stamp the hearts and to distress around the circle edge I then added gold Viva Decor to the little flower centres.  I coloured both Tilda and Edwin with Copics then cut them out, adhered them with silicone glue, I added some butterflies, flowers and little pearl circles filled with gold Viva Decor, finally I added a stamped sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Well that is it from me today, I will be back tomorrow with my DT project for The Paper Shelter.
I have been trying to keep up with Jess bringing the garden into the house, last night I had a worm and snail brought in and left on the floor in the living room, I get loads of leaves and stones also other things that I ain't got a clue what they are, lol.  
She has been in and out all morning but is now sitting by my side asleep, I think.  I am making a stew which she can smell so she makes sure that if I move she does as well.
Anyway I wish you all well.

Looks to me like Tilda is trying to woo Edwin!! He might have a flower for her but it looks to me like she is about to jump off the card to get to him. Great design - beautifully done.

Beautiful card Lorraine, I love the images you've used and how you've fussy cut them, it's all so pretty.
I am on a mission to ink up neglected stamps & keep saying I'm not buying any more until I've used at least half of my neglected one's, but that hasn't worked out to well thanks to Magnolia leading me astray with new releases lol.
Thanks for joining us at Totally Tilda
