Dusting Off Tilda


A while ago I was so excited to get my very first Tilda stamp. I had been wanting her for so long. I barely got in the door before I was tearing open the envelope and racing down to my craftroom to ink her up.

Well, since then of course other things have come up, new images to play with etc etc and poor Tilda has been sitting there on my stamp shelf looking all forlorn wondering why I dont love her anymore............. Please tell me I'm not the only one guilty of this kind of neglectfulness.

I do of course, still love her that is. What is there not to love about the super sweet Tilda images after all.

I decided to show her a little love today and came up with this friendship card.

Tilda is coloured with Copics as are the flowers. I also gave the flowers a spritz of Glimmer Mist.

Papers are all from Stampin Up! (retired now I believe).

I am linking my card up with the following challenges:

I also want to remind you all that you still have a few days to link up your creations to my new weekly Linky Party "Make It Monday".

This is not a challenge, there is no theme to follow, simply link up your creation be it a card, scrapbook page or altered item, anything really. It doesn't even need to be a new creation. Want to revive and old post from way back? Then link it up so everyone can come on over and check it out.

You can submit as many creations as you like. It's all about sharing the creativity and inspiring others.

Just remember to Link back to the actual post not just your general blog link and also add a link back to here so others can join in the fun.

Click here to submit your creation.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

Oh poor Tilda, and she is such a cute one- aren't they all?
I am ashamed to admit how many un-inked or not very used stamps and supplies I own. My craft room is probably full of wailing.LOL
Love your coloring also of your cutie. So glad I popped in.
