Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Be Mine

Hello, how are you keeping?

As it is the first day of the month I am here to show my DT contribution to the February Ladybug Crafts challenge where the theme is Be Mine.

A friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, decided to abandon papercraft for the joys of needlework (quizzical look and eyebrows raised!).  Her wonderful hubby bought her a sewing machine for her birthday and she has never looked back. This lead to her having a few bits of crafty stash that were now redundant and requiring a good home.  Step forward me with a needy look and outstretched hands (gimme, gimme!).  Needless to say the orphaned stash is orphaned no more. J

So here I am with my ‘first ever Tilda’ (I know, how shabby is that!) thanks to my unexpected and very generous inheritance! (Thank you; thank you; thank you!)



I coloured my ‘first ever Tilda’ with my Pro & Flexmarkers onto super smooth card.



I went a bit bold with my colour choice of deep pink with a touch of blue but I think it works.
All the dies and punches are from the Tonic Affections collection except the leaves which are from the Spellbinders Botanical Swirls & Accents and the Tattered Lace Ornate Leaves.  The fab papers are Bonnets & Bowties from LOTV as is the sentiment.  And yes those are skeleton leaves you can see. Well they were the right colour!

And that’s it. My first and defiantly not my last foray into the wonderful world of Tilda!

Now it’s your turn to get loved up!  Scoot over to the Ladybug Crafts challenge  to join in and check out the amazing DT inspiration.

See ya!

Scribbly hugs
Jane xx
