Special Tilda

Hello dear friends !!!

I hope everyone here in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I cooked and ate to much lol But that is part of the holidays isn’t it ???

I got such a wonderful surprise in the mail this week. An early Christmas present from one of my dearest friends !!! Oh so many wonderful things but I have used a couple of them here on my card today. She got me some luscious papers of Maja Design. Oh how I wish we had these here in the states. I about cried when I cut into them. Then she got me this special Tilda isn’t she just gorgeous ??? Both of my items came from Crea Shop Duymelot in Holland.

Magnolia are donating 500 euros to the Swedish Cancer Fund, and for every one of these stamps sold 2 euros is donated to the Pink Ribbon Cancer Fund and so a very good way to raise funds and awareness. This charity is also very close to Astrid's heart (the owner of the Dutch shop) as she has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. So if you would like to get this adorable Tilda the place to get it is at Crea Shop Duymelot . And please keep Astrid in your prayers.

I have colored Tilda with my copic’s  and have added some Glamour Dust Glitter paint to the hearts.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Square doily from Cheery Lynn Designs 

Leaf and fence from Magnolia

Heart is from MS
