1. I am germ-a-phobic! If somebody touches my food while I am eating, or drinks from my glass... MEAL OVER!
2. I am a diabetic, and take insulin 7 times a day.
3. I am petrified of mice! I literally jump onto a table and scream whenever I see one!
4. I am adicted to crisps! I need a fix regulary. At the moment, the flavour is sour cream and onion!!!
5. I stopped smoking three years ago. After 20 a day for 20 years, the time had finally come. I STILL have cravings!
6. I have four children, all boys and would love to have another one... but I am getting to old! LOL

This is the second one, although I think I have uploaded them in the wrong order! LOL. I have coloured her with distress inks, embossed and distressed a swiss dots card, placed that on a wallpaper sample. The flowers are made with nesties, and gold brads from stash. I made the little envelope and distressed that too, and the tag is a sizzix with gold band from my stash.
Thanks for looking (if anybody actually did) LOL. Get the feeling I am waffling to myself here!
Hallo all, I 've been busy! My OH is away for four days, so I have been making cards. I have loads of new Christmas stuff, but Have made no other normal cards for ages. So my goal is to get something other than Christmas done. I have been stocking up on my "male" cards as well, got five "George" cards in the box.
Here is my first Tilda for today. I have used Tilda with straw, but changed it to lavender. I have stamped onto normal card (I usually use watercolour paper) and then used Papermanias elegant paper. Under that is an old piece of velum that I stamped with some swirls in gold, not that you can see them. The pearls are from my stash. The flowers I have made using nesties and a punch, using the same backing paper for the pink. The centre pink flower is a prima. I have also used pink papermania gems in the flowers.

Today I have made a card for a friend, who is having a party next weekend, to celebrate her 40th and the fact that she has just graduated with a BSc. She is not a "girly" girl, so I chose these autumn colours. I am giving her a voucher for a hot stone massage, so I have made this as a pocket to put the voucher in. Cuttlekids alphabet, Tilda in a flurry, Tilda's horse, prima flowers and then I have punched out a mass of leaves from scraps of card. I have sprayed the whole card with Perfect pearls, so it is all shiny.
Thanks for looking!

I have posted another card, using the same Magnolia stamp, but as a Christmas card. I have made her dress from homemade paper and coloured the rest using watercolour pencils. Of course, Stickles for her wings and dabbed here there and everywhere. Both the dove and the "God Jul" stamp are from Magnolia. Although you cant see much of the backing paper it is from Papermania, and I have mounted Tilda onto cream card, distressed with Rangers. The pearls and hearts are from my stash.
I hope you like it.
Here's wishing you all a lovely weekend and take care

There is just no stopping me now!!! Can't really understand why I thought this was so difficult.
This is one of my favourite Tilda cards! I have mounted Anita's Christmas paper. inked the edges, on navy card then on a pale blue background. )I have coloured Tilda using distress inks and stickles for the sparkly bits. The snowballs, also a Magnolia stamp are applied with foam pads. The wording is in Swedish, computer generated,"Merry Christmas, an a happy new year"
