Tilda, Family and What’s New!

(E.T.A. 7:25 pm)  WE JUST HAD A SHORT, WILD, WINDY THUNDERSTORM!!!  GUESS WHAT?!  Then bright sunshine and a rainbow… I grabbed my camera and  took this out the window, so it’s not great but how COOL!

Tilda is bringing us a great reminder today, especially since it’s that time of year around here!  This cutie Tilda in Spring Rain is available HERE, part of the Chasing Butterflies Collection.  Colored with Distress Inks available HERE.  EK Success Medium Retro flower punch and leaf punch.  I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher instead of thread in the button holes (I did put them in by hand).  The cute saying is from an Inkadinkado clear stamp set called Friendly advice available HERE,  I still need to get this one HERE,  so cute!  Gingham and polka dot paper is by October Afternoon…scallop ledger paper is from Creative Imaginations.  I edged everything with Antique Linen Distress ink and the ink blending tool (link in sidebar).   Tilda and the sentiment are stamped with Versafine Onyz Black Ink available HERE.

Linking to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog today…the theme is polka dots!


I wanted to take a minute to tell you our oldest daughter (Heather) has set up a blog, Adoption Miracles,  for our middle daughter’s (Amanda) upcoming adopting two children from Bulgaria.  Right now she is giving away one of my cards!  Cool….  There is a link to Amanda’s blog and the heart warming saga of their adopting two children from Ukraine and now as the journey continues by adopting two more orphans from Bulgaria. Our youngest daughter Breanna and her DH are expecting their second child this month,  so it will be an exciting month here!  By the end of the year Tim and I will have 12 grandchildren!  They are all wonderful!!! As I’m sure all you grandparents out there feel the same way about yours!!!  ♥

  12. Pam, congrats on your growing family circle!
    Oooh, you make me want to bring out some of my old Tildas too. Love this image, haven’t used her much. Love your colouring in distress ink–decided not to go there, though. I’m experimenting with coloured pencils instead. I like the sentiment on your card.
