Tilda and Teddy

This was initially started before Christmas and was going to be for my daughter’s birthday card until she announced whilst home at Christmas that she didn’t like people stamps or Tilda …shock how you can not like such an adorable girl, so it was back to the drawing board and I have a new plan . Which I wont be able to show until after the event as she will see it. I’ve not had much crafting timeof late so made the most of some tim ei had last night and as Tilda wa sitting there ready and waiting she just had to be used, needing inspiration I decided to follow a sketch this time.The Addicted to Stamps sketch fitted the bill perfectly as it has lots of layers which I like so I went for it. I’m overall happy although I had die cut a very pretty border then realised after I had glued the lace on I hadn’t used it!... ughh less haste more speed a they say. A quick post as have work soon, I had planned to do this earlier this morning but that didn’t work out! Hope everyone has a fab week and you haven’t been too disrupted by the snow, hugs Andrea x
