Tilda: Calendar Girl #62 Totally Tilda

Morning all,
Hope you're all well this sunny Sunday morning, and what a lovely day to kick off the last
Totally Tilda challenge of 2012! This challenge will run for the next four weeks so you have until the 12th of January to upload for work.
This time we would love to see your
Tilda Calendar or Calendar page creations,
 and with so many inspirational ideas out there I'm sure you will be as spoilt for choice as I was.
I had intended to do a wall hanger this time as all my creations just lately have been Christmas cards and I was getting a bit fed up with doing them to be honest (and I didn't think I'd ever say that!) but as it took shape it turned into another step card so I'm hoping to make something fresh and inspirational for the new year. I do have plenty of ideas brewing and my fingers are already itchy so I could have a busy Christmas lol! Anyhoo, hope you like the step card albeit a bit plain.

I decided to put my calendar stub on a tag and make it a countdown to Christmas card, although the pictures were taken a couple of days ago so a few more days have been crossed off since.

Yippeeeeeee, it's the first December

Anyhoo, the theme we've given you this fortnight is
Sitting Tilda
so as long as we can see the delightful Tilda sitting on your creation somewhere prominent then you will be in with a chance of winning the fab prize or being picked to be the DT's top 3!

 I used Magnolia's Tilda on roof, Snowy Roof and Welcome to a sweet Christmas stamps, coloured with DI's and I don't think much escaped the stardust stickles on this one!

DooHickey's used: Magnolia stitched scalloped lace border, lacy flower and snowflake.
Sentiment stamp is a Whimsy mini postage stamp.

Totally Tilda MW#60 Christmas Recipe

Morning blogland,
I'm here to remind you all that there is just under a week for you to still enter our 
Christmas Recipe challenge (your creation must include 2 DP's, ribbon, pearls and a tremendous TILDA of course lol!)
 over at 
For this week's midway reminder I made an easel shaker card using silver and white snowflake embellies. The stardust stickles and silver gel pen were added liberally to create that extra sparkle and the tiny pearls were added to the acetate rather than the image underneath.

The main shape of the easel was created using a Go Kreate die, the shaker element shape is Spellbinders nestie Lacey Square, the two large snowflakes are a TH die and the papers are both Magnolia.

The sentiment panel is made from Spellbinders nestie labels two, sentiment and snowflakes are from the Girls Paperie Tinsel and Twig set.

As you know our fab sponsor this fortnight is the Ribbon Girl

offering this amazing prize

So, if you fancy winning some gorgeous stash or want the chance to be in the Totally Tilda DT Top 3 then get creating! 
Challenges I would love to enter:
Tilda's Town - Anything Goes
Marvelous Magnolia challenge - Non tradiional Christmas card colours
Bunny Zoe's - Winter

Thanks for popping by and visiting me, your comments make my day :) Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead

Fussy and Fancy DT Feeling Blue

Evening everyone,
the weekend's arrived at last, hooray! I'm a little bit late with my
DT post for this fortnight as this morning we started a brand new challenge for you - 
'Feeling Blue'
 and as the theme suggests we'd love to see your blue creations - easy right?

This card is quite small as it was made using Spellbinder nestie labels twenty two and the Magnolia Tilda with Holy baby is matted on Spellbinder nestie lacy circle. I didn't bother getting the sewing machine out and still like the faux stitching every now and again. I went a bit mad with the TH Stickles and the paper is Magnolia.
I decided to stick a Magnolia doohickey tag to the inside which peeks out of the top when closed and has a little bell attached.
We look forward to seeing all your beautiful blue creations and you never know you could be our next guest designer or hand picked to be one of our DT Top 3!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and for the lovely comments you leave, I will be back again on Sunday with another Tilda delight for Totally Tilda's next challenge.

Totally Tilda DT #59 Sketch

Happy Sunday morning everyone!
Today is the first
Totally Tilda
 challenge of November and this time we all have an amazing
 to follow.
It was great to see everybody's Fruity creations for our last challenge, the variety of colours and  fab designs were amazing. Obviously this sketch challenge gives plenty of scope and if you are anything like me will welcome the opportunity to get some of those Tilda Christmas cards completed!

The Magnolia doohickey flower I thought looked a bit like snowflakes so I left them quite plain, plus if I'd put any more on this card it would have completely obscured the sketch design - I'm sailing close to the wind as it is as I always get engrossed in my creating and was in danger of spoiling it by going OTT as ever!
I just had to use one of my new Tilda's - this one is Jingle Jangle Tilda, coloured in DI's, and overpainted with white acrylic for the falling snow. I had to add some ivory flower soft for the snow that Tilda's stood on to give more texture.

The hidden tag is another doohickey, I can't seem to do a card these days without a tag lol!

Anyhoo that's what I made using this fab sketch:

This time we are sponsored by the lovely Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts!

who has this wonderful prize to give away to our lucky winner

Challenges I would love to enter:
Marvelous Magnolias - Anything Goes
Magnolialicious Highlights - Something Hidden (tag)
Tilda's Town - Winter Weather

I hope you can join us this fortnight to show us what you can do with the sketch, we look forward to seeing your magnificent Tilda creations - check out my wonderful teamies awesome inspiration on the Totally Tilda challenge blog, you won't be disappointed!
I will be back next Sunday with more inspiration for Totally Tilda's sketch challenge, in the meantime have a great week :)

Midway Fruity design for Totally Tilda

Morning all,
We are half way through our fab
Tilda with Fruit 
challenge over at 
and so I'm here to show you what I've made for the week ahead - a criss-cross card, and although the paper is a little on the bright side for me, I'm still chuffed with the end result. As I didn't have any apple DP, this was the next best thing as it's still fruity and compliments the apple theme well. 
I've not put a sentiment on this one as it's not earmarked for anything in particular yet, but it's suitable for loads of different occasions, even as a Get Well card (an apple a day and all that....) 

I went with an apple core shaped tag, which I designed myself and if you squint it actually looks a bit like an apple core lol!

Magnolia apple Tilda (coloured as usual with TH DI's)
Magnolia doohickey's antique lace, flower
Spellbinder nesties lacy square, foliage, labels nine
SU stamp used on edge of nestie shape
WOC flower
Magnolia paper - vintage cherries

Thanks for visiting me today and for your lovely comments x
I hope to be visiting many of your blogs this coming week and I will be back next week with a new creation for the start of a whole new Totally Tilda challenge.
Just a quick reminder of what fantastic prize we have on offer from Sir Stampalot:

Tilda Sparkles

Shiny Tilda with candles

I hope you find time to join us this time at Totally Tilda as we can't wait to see what you create!
