Couldn't help myself xx

I couldn't do it again today just had to ink up a Tilda. She is a new buy and was shouting to be inked up for the "Tomic" challenge needed to be an egg and photo inspiration well guess what I missed it!!!! Just my luck oh well at least I have another Easter card to send.
Tilda with an Egg coloured in with pro marker also stamps my two co-ordinating birds to go with this fabby paper which is from Magnolia!!
The flowers are all from my stash and the lovely cream pom-pom ribbon was another lucky find a few weeks ago at the garden centre they had it in lots of colours and was only 2.99 for 3 meter's which I didn't think was bad because the pom poms are quite large!
A close up of my little birdie which I added glamour dust too.
Cut a small tag which I have stamped Easter on with a Magnolia Sentiment edged with distress ink and added the lovely acrylic flowers which I found on eBay.

A side view which shows the colours and the stickled edges along with the beautiful green butterfly border.

Went to the Doctor's yesterday and she has signed me off for another four weeks don't think the DH was all that pleased!  Need to motivate myself to do some ironing but just looking at the pile puts me off think I might just escape back to my craft room.

Hope you will be better soon !
Love your card, superb colors of spring, and Tilda is so cuuute ! So lovely details, love the little bird !
Take care my dear friend !

(I do not know the name of my green ribbon on my tissue box. It is a kind of ribbon that will serve the people to make curtain tiebacks I believe, impossible to find the right word hihi)

Angela said...

First thank you Chanelle for your sweet comments. Your Tilda card is gorgeous and I love all the added embellishments you have used. I hope you are doing well. I am starting to feel better, we have so much to do this time of the year.. Landscaping, Garden. painting the list just goes on and on. We have been working out side every night this week. Now all we have to is plant some monkey grass in the landscaping, and get our veggie plants in the garden. Hopefully in a month or 2 wee will have our carport closed in and have another bedroom for our kids. I need to get the 2 bedrooms.. the kids rooms.. painted a lighter color and they are all dark and I am so tired of looking at them.
I so appreciate all your sweet comments you have left me.
