Hand Made Flower & Pin for Tilda

Good Evening my dears,  Well the Grandchildren have gone home!!!  they must have had jelly babies or something with additives at school today because they were super hyper!!  The twins were just full of mischief today and the 14yr old has hormonal problems, he is "in love" and doesn't quite know how to handle it!! I think i've given him some sound advice,  aren't Grandmothers wonderful people lol.

Anyway I started this card yesterday when I came across these lovely challenge blogs for the first time, so I thought I would create something for them and for the regular challenge blogs that I love to enter. 

I've used sweet Tilda in Rubber Boots from the Butterfly & Dreams collection, isn't she a doll.  My papers are basic grey but I cannot remember which pad they came from.  My full recipe is below this post.

I do have to tell you that I made the flower myself, I incorporated white netting fabric and interface fabric, used my Marianne D's dies and my doohickey lace doily flower die, there are 11 layers and I then distressed them all with TH tattered rose inks. popped on a jewelled brad from Do craft and there you have it, a very pretty flower with nice texture.  I also made the little hatpin from various beads I have in my stash.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit me, I really appreciate you taking the time, and I wish you all a lovely day/evening where ever you are.

I would like to enter the following challenge.

Suzi, your card is gorgeous. It so soft and colored beautifully. Your flower is gorgeous, especially with the ribbon and pin. So pretty.

DJ said...

Wonderful card. It is very "girly". I love the soft pink colors you chose. Your flower is so beautiful. On a side note I live with one of my daughters and her four children. The eight year old granddaughter has her own hormonal moments even at this age, my 7 yr old grandson is the picky eater so cooking dinner can be a real challenge like it was tonite and the 4 yr old special twin grandsons are a handful of energy and high spirits every day. It us never dull around here.

Ah, Suzi - this is lovely! I adore Tilda and your handmades. Thanks for the interfacing idea - I like the soft texture. I'm working on my own handmade embellishment for the challenge using crinoline. Fun uses for fabric store finds!

Thanks so much for making our Beary Sweet challenge part of your day. Being a fan of yours for quite a while, I'm happy to see you. :)
