Tilda with flower

Hi guys,
Well what a busy week and weekend I've had, Had Tegan from Monday to Thursday, Friday night she came back with her parents for our family hair cuts etc, then on Saturday I had her all day and all night till Sunday morning because her mum was on a hen do! PHEW!! I love her to bits but wouldn't like to be a full time parent now, lol
and guess what she's back today as her mums at work!

Am I a gluten for hard work! no don't answer that,
 the joys of her kisses, cuddles and hugs are well worth it!
well best got on with my card he he,

I've followed the sketch over at Midweek magnolias, loved it too, and used one of my favourite Tildas, she's coloured with distress re-inkers and the papers are by Pion and Magnolia,

Thought I'd have a change and use some ribbon in a different way,

The banner is by Magnolia too, the gorgeous small butterflies are by Tonic, pearls, cheesecloth and doily from stash,

Magnolia Mania ~ Birthday card
Simon Says Stamp ~ anything goes

Well it's been lovely here today though not as warm as last week, have you heard it gives snow? I mean what! we were in strappy tops last week boiling! lol

will catch you later,
enjoy your crafting!
