Tilda in Blue!


I have not posted a card in a few days due to a case of "beautiful weather" (pics below) what prompted me to do a card like this, perhaps the pics below, perhaps the fact that I am now officially addicted to Tilda (you were so right Trisha)!! 

Ms. Sugar at Die Cut Dreams is having a Tilda in Blue Challenge, so perhaps that was motivation in & of itself! I tried to make her look vintagy for the Just Magnolia Challenge, but me & vintage don't go well together! I done tried my best!!

I tea bagged my doily & some of the papers, I recycled the flowers from an arrangement I had sitting at home, I used a bit of blue raffia ribbon on the lower left corner, a sailors hook embellishement & seashell buttons from the dollar store, misc papers, stitching & a ribbon accent from SU Hodge Podge Hardware. The sentiment is a freebie from a challenge blog a while back!
I used the Friday Sketchers sketch.

Other Challenges-
The Crazy Challenge - birthdays- inside is a birthday sentiment
OSAAT- white, black & 1 other (blue)

As for the beautiful weather...........well we went & spent the day at my brother's cabin. Merik (pictured here) loved the fresh air & we put him in the water once.

Reade on the other hand......would NOT leave the water, he was hanging off me or my nephew, jumping off the dock, taken on a tube ride (last pic) with my nephews and Hannah & by the end of the day he wasn't taking NO help from NO ONE! Of course Hannah was her usual fishy self!

Tune in tomorrow when Fussy & Fancy Friday's goes LIVE on THURSDAY......why?
Come back & find out!
