TOTALLY TILDA CHALLENGE #52 TILDA HAVING SUMMER FUN


 Good morning folks. My compter is back and hopefully there's not going to be any more problems. I had a new C drive but then I kept getting an error and it crashing. It's been on for a couple of hours now, so fingers crossed it stays that way. I have so missed everyone. I know I'm not brilliant at commenting but I have been checking you all out on my mobile phone - gosh, I wonder what my phone bill will be like? 
Well, we have another new challenge over at Totally Tilda - which is Summer Fun.
But before I get on to my cards details - one of our teamies is leaving us. The lovely Melly makes super cards and her colouring is wonderful. I feel like I havent got to know them all yet, as I'm still a newie, so it's sad for me that she is leaving. So good luck hun - I promise to stop by your blog and check in on your wonderful work. 
I have coloured Tilda with Daisy from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection with promarkers. 
Papers are " Garden Party " - Dovecraft
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Scrap-a-licious
Ribbon - LOTV
Well - that's it for today. Got lots to do and a roast to cook for the 5000.
 Nothing new there lol. I will try and be back later to catch up on blogs and leave some love.

For my card I used Magnolia's Water Lily Tilda and Ocean Background. It took me a long time to get the masking and back-ground to look right. Three attempts later - perfect. I placed tape over the water lilies that are around Tilda, inked the image, peeled off the tape and stamped. She's been coloured with Pro-markers.
The flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts and flowers I purchased from Hobby-Craft.
The star fish and shells are from Hobby-Craft too.
Papers are NEW ARRIVAL - Forever Friends - LUSH!
Magnolia DooHickey Cutting Die - Bloomy Tag.
Gems - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment - Docrafts - Papermania - Lucy Cromwell.
 Small Butterfly Punch - Tonic Studio.
 So come on Girls and Boys - let's see what you all come up with. We had a wonderful selection of creations from the last challenge. Can't wait to see your Sea-side cards.

Now I'm going to share with you, some pictures from my youngest Daughter's Prom night.
Megan most certainly had a ball and looked stunning ( Megan's in the lovely green dress ). When I walked in her friends house and saw all the girls dressed up - I just couldnt control the tears. Where, oh where as the time gone? It seems like only yesterday, they were are in Nursery school together and now they are young women. 
Some leaving school to work, other's carrying on to 6th form and College.
They are all look amazingly beautiful. 
How proud my baby as made me ( gosh, tears are flowing again ). I love her so much.

That's it from me today. Sunday roast to cook and washing to do. My middle Daughter Chloe came back from her holidays yesterday with a mountian of washing.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
