Hello Tilda

I made this Tilda card for KL Stampin n Scrappin. I also made this card for my SBS4 sister Deb. Her birthday isn't til June, but since she lives on the other side of the pond, it'll take a bit to get to her.

Paper: SU Raspberry Tart
Stamps: Magnolia, Sentiment is Amuse
Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Copics, Crystal Stickles, White Gel Pen, and Nestabilities


I went and got my nails done on Saturday for Catherine's wedding. I haven't had acrylics on since my own wedding last summer. In efforts to save money for the house, I gave up my nails. I use to get them done every 2 weeks. Obviously I couldn't give up rubbah or my primas, lol.

I forgot how much I love them though, sigh. Though I'm horrible. My favorite thing is to click my nails together. No lectures please. :) I may have to give up some rubbah so I can get a fill in a couple of weeks, lol.

Everyone have a great Monday!

  5. This is gorgeous! Love that Tilda, and those papers are fab! I'd love to have long nails (acrylic or real...I'm not fussy! LOL!) but being a pianist and piano teacher I can't! Oh, to be able to click and tap! LOL! Hugs, Sem x

  6. This card is so cute!! You just make those Tildas so adorable! I love that SU paper also. I've never bought SU, how does it compare to CTMH thickness?

    Also, where do you find all of your primas? I used to find some at our local Craft Warehouse, but for some reason she cut way back on the amount of flowers she carries. :(

  16. Oh Gorgeous! Love the image. THe sentiment is too cute. Looks like a good one to have in your stash.

    Tell DH that it's just too big of a pain to take the nails off, so you'll need to keep em on for a while. lol
