Tilda card for Three Challenges

Afternoon All! Whats happened to the weather? Yesterday was beautiful. We had the Grand-Daughter for the day and she had a ball with the hose-pipe. She helped her Auntie wash the car, but I think Holly got washed more - she was squeaky clean. Now today is so cloudy and dull.
So I sat in my little craft room and made this card. One of my favourite Tilda's.
I am going to enter this card in to three challenges. I was going to enter in to another " Your favourite stamp ", but I can't find my link to the site. Computer messed up and I have lost my favourites.
Meljens Designs Challenge ~ I see Double.
Charisma Cards Challenges ~ Easel Card.
Wild Orchid Challenges ~ One for the Girls.
This is my second fav Tilda stamp. She just so adorable. Used my new magnolia papers. Love the peacock feathers. I use to have some peacock feathers but couldn't find them any where. I think its time I cleaned my craft room. So I used pro-markers to colour a white feather. Loved the effect. So now I have use for all my white feathers! Why didn't I think of that in the first place!

This is a close-up of Tilda stamp. The little cup is a digital stamp from my pccrafters collection of graphics. Just adjusted the size and coloured to match Tilda. Then sat her over the top with mounting pads.

"I see double" ~ used the stamp twice. This time cut with nestabilities. Mounted to keep easel card upright.
Well, I have loads to do, so best get it all done before someone moans at me.
Oh, whilst I think about it ~ some of you know that I have been a stay at home Mum for 21 years. I had my very first interview last week, which was very frightening to say the least.
AND................I got the job!! How good is that? It's only cleaning at a private school - Headmasters House. But I just can't wait. Got to the point where I was sick of seeing 4 walls every day. So now I will be out the house 5 days a week and the good thing is, its term time. So I am still home for when my youngest finishes school and off when she is. How good is that?
So I am going to say bye for now....and will catch you all later.
Happy Crafting.
Hugs Tammy
