"Rain or Shine"? A Perfect Day!

Well I was meant to be going to a fete today which was cancelled
this morning due to the rain!!! mmmmmmm since about 9 o'clock
a.m. there has been no rain and it's been quite a nice day; What
do those weather people know?? Ha! should have guessed as
my knees weren't aching!!Lol, anyhow I have had lots of fun
in my craft room, I sorted through my photos and deleted loads,
think I get a bit snap happy, one card I had taken 24 pictures of??
ha, just in case! well have made a few cards too and this will be my
third posting of the day!! wow, if only everyday was like this!!
So this little card is for the Just Magnolia challenge this week,
it's a fab sketch by the very talented Rachel! it was really easy
to work with, so for this card I have coloured my Tilda in
water colours and left them a bit more pastel-ly (is that a word)?
I have seen some really lovely cards about with that shabby chic
distressed look and I am quite liking that scene!
So, the papers are from K & Co, Madeline, painted Roses
and are really beautiful it seemed a shame to cover
them up, although this little paper place mat is soooo
pretty too! flowers, sequins and ribbon from stash

The sentiment and the brackets are both PM clear
stamps which I have stamped with StazOn Black
and Fuchsia Pink.

I have cut my little Tilda out and used foam pads to
give her a bit of a lift! Think that's it, TFL Sue xx
