Tilda With Presents

Second post of the weekend I was going to do this last night but fell asleep!!! and I had to do the ironing today which took forever but better late than never! . .This is another more traditional style of card but I've used more greens thank reds this time. I love this Tilda stamp it’s one of my favourites, its called ‘Tilda with wedding presents’  but I think its perfect for Christmas or any gift type card and I really like the rich colours I have used on her., I am pleased with how it’s turned out. I've quite a stash of Christmas cards now and just need to decide who is getting what card now as I've nearly finished...I still have the boxes to make but have finally mastered this at last after a few disastrous wonky one!.. I'm not good a straight lines and measuring! I've also finished two other Christmas cards and made some simple gift tags, which  I'm really enjoying making as they are much easier than cards and not as much work. I think I will spend next week tag making and will keep you posted how I get on.
