Birthday Blues

Hi all,  A very Happy Easter Sunday to you all,  I hope you've all had a wonderful day with Friends and Family.

Our Sunday has been very quiet, just dear hubby and me. Awe!!! but we are taking our Grandchildren out tomorrow for lunch and then onto somewhere ( depending on the weather).

Anyway I wanted to show you another sweet Tilda card.  This stamp is from the Butterfly and Dreams collection and believe it or not it's her very first outing for me.  She hasn't been sitting unloved, I only just bought her in the sale at Crafts U Love. I used my copics to colour her and placed her on a Fleur de lis spellbinders square die. The little sentiment poking out the side is from Whimsy Stamps. A full list of ingredients is below this post.

Thanks for popping in to visit me, it's very much appreciated. Take care everyone and enjoy the rest of your long weekend.
