Tilda with Wrapped Heart

Morning blogworld.

I have some exciting news. Last night I was in the middle of writing this blog and cooking tea when my step daughter, our eldest,  came round to tell us she was expecting a baby. Well that was it, computer off, oven off and out to the pub for a few celebratory drinks and food with the parents to be and our middle daughter. Gosh in a few months time I will be grandma. It's only a name but grandma does tend to make you feel older!!! It came a bit sooner than planned because they aren't getting married in 2014. Guess they will have a tiny flower girl or page boy. Russ is feeling very proud understandably.
This is third time lucky as I was once again going to publish this post when my daughter phones me from A & E. She fell over on the way to work this morning and has cracked a bone in her hand so she will have to were a splint for two weeks. Luckily she works at the hospital so she didn't have far to go to x ray. Bless her cotton socks. I AM NOW GOING TO PRESS PUBLISH.

Any way on to today's post. This is the first time I have inked this little beauty and what a pleasure it was. I ordered 3 Tilda stamps from Simon Says after winning one of their challenges and I am chuffed to bits with her.

The card blank is from Craftwork Cards and the papers are from a cd which is available from Polka Doodles called Picknix. Tilda has been coloured with Pro Markers and Flexi Markers with a Faber Castell Polychromo pencil for the shadow round the image. Diamond Sparkles has been added to her dress and heart bow. 

The flowers, metal corner embellishment and the pink hat pins are from WOC and the pearl hat pin is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop as is the bow. These were from a blog hop win and the ribbon is gorgeous so will be definitely putting an order in for more. (I don't think I will ever be able to give up work)!!!

The poppy die and the butterfly are both by Memory box and are available from many on line stores.  The sentiment is from a collection by LOTV. I cannot remember where I got the punch butterfly, sorry.

I am entering this card into the following challenges. - Things with Wings - Pink, white/green - Favourite magnolia image - Bingo -die cut, free, doily - Anything goes/optional square card - Flutter - Anything goes

Thank you friends for your wonderful comments - they mean so much to me.
