So my sister Denise stopped by the other night to try out my newest Copic colours. She had just received her order in the mail from Magnolia so she had stamped one of her favorite images a few times and brought it with her. While she coloured one up, I played with my nieces and learned a great deal about twirling a batton... with your eyes closed... (very important not to be near any glass or crystal during this last part).

Denise only coloured one and after she & my nieces left I noticed I had a bunch of little Tilda just sitting on my craft desk without colour. Doing the "decent" thing (lol), I got out my Copics and brought one little Tilda to life. It's weird that I used purple, because I'm not a fan of purple. I did have a couple of sheets of this Wisteria so I thought I'd finally cut into it.

You'll see in this picture that Tilda's wings are bare of colour. When I gave her some glitter (because she can't fly without it), my camera sighed it's last breath & I can't take a replacement photo until I replace the batteries.

By the way, those beautiful pearls that my good friend Pauline sent me... I can't seem to do them justice at all. They are in a beautiful flourish pattern on the package and I'm all thumbs, glue and frustration when I go to put them in place. Anyone have any tricks for this?

Assessories: Want2Scrap adhesive pearls, flowers (also from Pauline!!) sheer ribbon, dew drops

I thought about those stamped images I left there after I got into the car and I wasnt going to drag everyone back up there to get them. (I have the STAMP! so I can make as many as I want! hehehehehehe!) besides I knew they would not go to waste since I left them in the middle of your craft desk! You sure made that little girl look so much more cuter than I did. And I really love that stamp! I need practice! You put together a beautiful card there Carla. AGAIN! You can borrow those Tildas whenever you want!
(as long as I can practice with your markers!)
