Thank you topper and blog candy winner !

This little sugar nellie stamp is such a pretty little thing , i believe she is called "windswept". The papers on this topper ive had for ages , and it was by accident that i put them together , i was rummaging through some papers taking out the ones that called to me lol ... and these two fell ontop of each other and i thought - ohhhhh thats nice ! 
I had treated myself to some gorgeous prima flowers from charmed cards , the red bloom is the prima .
I had a fabulous secret santa parcel that had been organised in charmed forum and in it was a fabulous thank you stamp , which i love and have used on this topper and some flower soft which ive used on her basket ( thank you secret santa !)

My Friend flowery Tilda !

Are we all getting ready for the chill again ? im not !  i don't want it to come !!-  i've too much to do before Christmas ! I spent last night nursing a flu-ey daughter .... i got a phone call at " Mummmmmmy , im poorly can i come home , ive got flu, the one you had and was really poorly with  " was the desparate plea last night .... my answer ????????/

" You must be joking George , your not comming here sharing my bed and passing it  onto me again !"
I am not as mean as you think ... i did go down to her flat  at 11 , having been to the shop armed with food , tons of medicine , bottled water , and chocolate !  Propped her up with pillows , made her a drink , listen to her moan lol and took the dog out for a piddle and poo rofl , i then left there about 12.30 am went to the other daughters , sorted her out and her tree , stayed for super noodles and stayed with her a while - i got home at around .... which isnt unusal for me .
Why is it that they can't wait to leave home and then beg to come back ? lol

Any hows , lol, heres a topper that i've made .. 
I don't know the papers , but the little flowers on them are really pretty - i think the main one is one of minds eye .( it was a scrap piece)

Theres luxury german glass glitter on the bloom and the little diamonte ribbon slider i got 
from orchid crafts. Lace and brad is from charmed cards - love this lace , you can colour it 
with copics to match any colour.
The flourish is a Tim Holtz die.

The good thing is that it makes you stay inside - which means more crafting heheeeee !

Its been a long time since this stamp has been inked and i believe they are no longer available
at sugar might find the odd one on ebay mind..
I forgot how sweet this stamp was , and good really for any occasion too.
The papers are from the Tilda range , but there is a scrap piece ( the pink tiny flowered one) 
I've used a sizzix die for underneth one of the blooms and also a flower punch. Some of the blooms have 
twinklets on and the heart is distressed crackle painted.

Summery Tilda and some more Blog Candy !

There are some Tildas that are really addictive colour and i think  this Tilda with Peony is one of them ! - im sorry i know i did one a few days ago, but i could'nt resist her !
I got the most gorgeous prima flowers from charmed cards , karen has some yummy ones in and im tempted with all of them !
Heres a topper ive made...

I love photographing in the sun , it really shows up the little details ..
I've been a real sucker for prima butterflies lately ,  !
I've once again sprinkled twinkets on them .
The paper is one from my scrap drawer..and ive had the ribbon for ages and never been able to match it 
with any papers until now .. 

I've used tiny spacers in the centre of the blooms that i got from ebay .
And the charm underneth the ribbon is also from ebay - its a toggle clasp for bracelets 
,but i thought it would be pretty to use as a charm .

A Happy Birthday Tilda !

Well since the snow is on the ground it shows up the footprints that are appearing in my garden .... and i think i have a visiting fox ! Theres dog like prints leading from my back wall to my back door then to the shed ! I know they are classed as vermin - but the thought of it not finding food in snow got to me - so i left out some dog food and water .. i wont do it unless its thick snow - just couldnt sleep thinking its going hungry . They are beautiful animals and if we didnt have them - we would miss them. Theres something magical watching a fox

Well theres nothing to do apart from craft and catch up . So id like to share this topper ive made..
A Tilda Happy Birthday topper , ive use prima paper and one other - but it was in my scraps so i dont know which one it is ..
The hearts and tab are a sizzix die and ive adorned one of the hearts with the gorgeous German glass glitter , I gathered some lace on the hat pin .

I've used bobble trim at the top and found some old pearl brads that were just waiting to be used - i forgot how pretty they can be.
I've matted the  sentiment on a nestie and cut off the top and bottom ( it was round) works pretty well  i think.
Tilda is coloured with copics .
I'd like to enter this into these challenges

This topper is available on EBAY
