Tilda with Big Tulips

Hello friends.
Hope you are all having a good week. Russ has gone to the NEC this evening to take down the stands from an exhibition for his works so I am having a relaxing evening on my todd. I have made some soup with my new Soup maker (Tomato and Red Pepper) - delicious. Later on I am going to watch Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Has anybody watched it? All this will be washed down with a lovely bottle of red wine. I do know how to look after myself!!!
For my card today I have used Tilda with Big Tulips - this has to be one of my favourite stamps.
A full product listing with links to the supplier will be at the end of this post. If I have missed anything and you would like to know details, please just ask.

I am really not happy with my photos. I used to use PhotoScape but after having problems with 2 of my laptops (needing new hardrive) I am so reluctant to download it again in case it was this that caused the problems. I don't think for a minute it was but I daren't take any chances. Has anyone had any problems with Photoscape just to reassure me.

I have coloured her with my Distress markers my favourite colour Victorian Velvet.

The flowers are a mixture from Live and Love Crafts and WOC. The sparkly embellishment is from The Hobby House.

 I have added a love heart metal embellishment on the bottom right from Live and Love Crafts and added Frantage to it. Love these.

 The butterfly is from Joy Crafts - I have cut this and used just one of the butterflies on the right and one behind the flowers on the left.

Alexandra♥ said...

Hello Sharon! Another beauty from you! I love all the accents you've added to your card and how you colored the image!

I don't use Photoscapem so can't tell anything about it.

PS - You definitely know how to look after yourself and have fun :)

Really beautiful Sharon, I too love this stamp. I use Photoscape but not noticed any issues with it. X

brenda said...

I invested in one of those soup makers when I saw them in Lakeland back in the Autumn. I was sceptical at first as I really did't think the half hour cycle would produce anything worthwhile, but how wrong I was.

Leek and potato remains our favourite so far, but not really experiments that much as every time I ask hubby he asks for the same.

Enough about soup, your card is a delight and as always such perfection in the finishing details.

Hope you enjoyed your wine!

I use PhotoScape v3.6.3 for over a year now and I had any problem. But I have never installed the update, this stuff, I do not so trust! I prefer to have positive opinion, before use!
Hope it can help you!
