Hawaiian Tilda

Hello everyone

Jack and I have just watched Usain Bolt smash the 200 metres world record. How fantastic is that guy? I love watching sports people. I can't believe how much effort they put in - they are absolutely amazing and they give me so much pleasure.

This card is for my sister, Susan, for her birthday on Saturday. I'm going to tell her to stay off my blog until I've given her the card but I don't know if she'll be able to do it. When we were young she was the one that was always up at 4.00 am on Christmas Eve to see if Santa had been. All the presents were opened and then we would get back to bed for a couple of hours until she was up again! Although she's quite patient now, I don't think she's ever really been able to contain her curiosity. She's planning a Bar-B-Que for her birthday. It will probably pour down but she's got a big gazebo thingie in the garden that we can all hide under so it will be fine.

I can enter this card for 7 challenges:
C.R.A.F.T: Summer theme
Cute Card Thursday: Lazy Days
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Blog: Blossoms (This is a brand new blog and the first ever challenge so check it out)
Lily of the Valley: Charms. It's the first time I've done this one.
A Spoonful of Sugar: Travel
Papertake Weekly: I've chosen Summer from their recent Seasons Challenge. You can choose anything you like from all their challenges ever because it's their birthday and they are celebrating so get yourself on over there. It's great.
Pink Elephant: Summer. It's my first time for this one as well.

I'm quite pleased with this one and I think Susan will like it. She loves hand-crafted cards and she's kept every card we've ever made her in a box.

This is my card:


My card recipe:
Image: Magnolia Hawaiian Tilda and Palm Tree
Coloured with Faber Castell Water Colour Pencils with Distress Inks for Tilda's face
DP's: Black Market Paper Society - Little Miss Smitten Lucky 'n Love
Coredinations Cardstock: Aqua and Cappucino
Flip Flop & Heart Charm, chain, brads, spacer and ribbon from stash
There's a little pin in the ribbon but I don't know if you can see it
Flowers: some punched from the same card and papers, some from stash

Hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by.
