Honey Tilda

I can't believe it's taken me nearly three weeks to finish off and post a card! I just haven't found the time what with running the household, managing the kids and now easter holidays! My 12 year is constantly bugging me to get off the computer so he can go on!I don't know how other crafters manage to roll of cards daily! I do admit that this has been a rather long break but I hope to catch up soon.....

This stamped and coloured in image of Honey Tilda has been sitting "patiently" on my desk wanting to be made into a card and the reason why it has taken so long is because I  don't own many yellow papers. I finally had to get some digi papers to be able to finish the card!

I made my own flowers for this card! Can you believe it? I watched some YouTube videos and hey presto - self-made paper roses distress inked with scattered straw ink! Are you impressed? I am :)

Aftrer all this waiting, I hope you like it!  I do :)
