Lilac & lace and a girl named Tilda!

Morning bloggers, happy Thursday!
Well  I'm ashamed to say the lure of the craft room
was too strong so I didn't get the ironing finished yesterday,
I finished this card instead he he!
The images have been cut out & coloured for far too long
and really needed to be made into something.....how
could I resist? All made (apart from the gems) using bits from 
my bit box as well! So now I really need to go finish
the ironing......hope you all have a lovely day, I'll maybe
see you tomorrow!
Hugs Jo x

One for the boys!

Morning friends, if all goes to plan it should be Wednesday
morning when you're reading this! Thought I'd schedule
this post so's I can get straight on with the ironing.......eeeek!
Feel free to come help......I'll put the coffee on!
A card for a male today using a fab digi from Kenny K,
 I coloured this ages ago using promarkers
then left it sat in a drawer for far too long! Papers are from
My Memories, scallop circle is cut using a Sizzix die and
the buttons are from my stash! No sentiment yet as I'm not
 sure when & who this card is going to! 
Rightio, that's me done for today, maybe see you
tomorrow........once the ironing's done I'm gonna go play!
 big hugs Jo x
