Ballerina Tilda

We have had some lovely sunshine this weekend, I went for a run yesterday morning around our local lakes and then in the afternoon we even managed a bbq, lets hope it continues into the week. 
I managed to make a card this morning, I fiddled around with it for ages, another cutie from the Tilda range, I love her hair.  I have used the gorgeous Chapter One Paper Pad by Kaisercraft, they are one of my favourite pads of all time, I think i'm going to buy another pad just incase I run out of this one, I also made a felt flower from the Tim Holtz spiral flower die and then added a matching self adhesive pearl in the middle, I added a little bit of white paint to the flowers to give a vintagey feel.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

MDUC - Sketch
Deep Ocean - Wonderful Women

Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes

Morning I forgot it was Wednesday today, the bank holiday threw me, I thought it was only Tuesday, I'm pleasantly surprised. I ran on Monday with the running club, went to Zumba yesterday and as I have sat down alot to day my legs are aching!! Maybe a little run will loosen them up :)

Over on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge Blog this week it is Anything Goes, I've coloured Tilda with Copics, love this one, although I say that about all of them.  Papers are Nature Garden - Prima

Roses, Cherry Blossom, Pearl Flourish, Heart Charm, Heart Pins, Classic Pearl Heart, Self Adhesive Pearls, Doily and Lace - Creative Treasures

LOTV - Anything Goes

It has been raining for the last couple of hours, I hope it clears up by 6.30 as I am off to the running club and the rain plays havoc with my hair lol.  I am so so bored with the rain now, please someone send us some sunshine, I will never moan again about being hot!!

Over on the Lili's Little Fairies Blog it is anything goes this week so I thought I would ink one of my new LOTV stamps up, love this one, such a sweetie

I have spritzed the flowers with mica mist to give them a bit of a shimmer.

Pearls, Pearls and more Pearls

Take a look at these scrummy pretties that I have added to the shop, there are lots of different colour ways in the pearls, you can find Pearls here , Pearl Hearts here and Roses here:

Have a fab bank holiday

The sun is shining

What a lovely start to the weekend, I'm not to sure how long it is going to last, let's hope it's a while. 
OH ran the marathon in 3hrs 38mins which was a fantastic time, to say it was wet and windy was an understatement!!
I have been running 3 times this week, I managed a 5k without stopping again and knocked 2 mins of my previous time so really happy about that.

I had a couple of new tilda's delivered this week and just had to ink this one up, I absolutely love her I think she has to be one of my all time favourites.

This isn't a colour combo I would normally use but I really like it, its a bit of a mix of old papers and Papermania Portobella Road. I have these Pearl Flourishes but cut the swirl away from the flower to give her a bit of sparkle I also glittered her wings.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Magnolia - Pearls & Swirls
Magnolia-licious - Summer - Blue, Orange & Yellow
Papertake - Anything Goes
Creatalicious - Butterflies & Flowers
