Princess Tilda plus Something More

Hi all today I have a couple of cards to show you that I have made for some challenges also a photo of Polo enjoying the sun on Tuesday.
My first card I made is for the following challenges:
For my card I have used one of my Tilda stamps, stamped and inked twice with Momento Tuxedo Ink, I coloured her with promarkers cut her out and 3'd her onto the first inked image, I used Viva Decor for the pearls on her tiara and around the image.  This is the first time I have used Viva Decor I have had it for ages, I love the effect and will definitely use it again.  The papers are Bearly Mine, Floral Breeze and Simply Dots, I used pink card to mount the papers on, I used my MS Doily border punch, my Fiskers Tag Punch and Corner rounder punch. I added a Memory Box Die Cut in the corner, cheesecloth also flowers, pink gems, hat pins and a white lace flower border.  I found some stamps that I used for the sentiment.

My second card is for the challenges at
I have been so inspired by the beautiful cards I have seen for this challenge that I just had to have ago, I used an A6 card base, the image is from Stamp Addicts Cube range, first I stamped the frame then the flower, I stamped the flower two more times cut them out, coloured them with promarkers then 3'd them, finally I added a stamped sentiment.

My final picture is of Polo, he is still having problems walking and is very unsteady on his feet, his spine is starting to curve but her still likes his daily walk around the block, it takes quite awhile but he loves it.  He will be 17yrs of age next month and I think he looks wonderful for his age. 

Well that's it from me on the posting front today but I will be seeing you all in awhile, I hope that you have enjoyed your visit, and like my pictures, I want to thank each and everyone for the lovely comments that you leave me.
Hugs to all.

Hi Lorraine, great cards, I'd forgotten I'd got those Stamp cubes, think I might have to blow the dust off after seeing your gorgeous card, Polo looks like he likes the sunshine, mine follow it round the garden, we have a lady in the village, her dog is 17 and she takes a baby buggy on there walk in case he decides he doesn't want to go any further.
Hugs DEbs
