Tilda Goes Shopping

Good evening folks ....

I've been a busy little card maker over the weekend and this is the first of 3 or 4 cards that I will post over the next day or so.

Isabella headed back to school today and Gray heads back to work tomorrow ....
Not to be a mean mummy/wife but ... yaaaay :D It will be so nice to have my days back and my own routine back.  Am I the only one who while their hubby is on holidays doesn't seem to get much done?!? I don't know if it's just being out of sorts, more work created having an extra body or two (in school hols) around, or the fact that when he is on holidays from work he thinks that it's a holiday from life in general?!?

Oh well .... Thank goodness for craft lol.

I coloured this gorgeous "Tilda Goes Shopping" stamp with my copics a while back when I first got my copics and she pretty much just sat around waiting for me to make a card for her ....

So ... here she is all ready to go ... Isn't it funny how when you really set your mind to something you actually manage to get it done?  I'm happy with how she turned out and I hope you like her as much as I liked finally getting her onto a card.
I cannot for the life of me get a photo uploaded that shows the stickles glitter that I put on the flowers, pearl swirl and Tilda's necklace so please believe me when I say that it is there and looks so goood .... I will continue to endeavour uploading the photos but for now blogger is being painful and not letting me do it!!

Happy "back to school" for us Aussie Mums and until next time
