New card and a signature resize test



I've just changed the numbers on the HTML code and it didn't make a difference to my oversized signature so I'm hoping if I repost and change the numbers at the same time it might just work...prepare for another giggle!
(please work) :o)

Yay! I did it (dancing round the room!)

New Sugar Nellie Melissa & new signature (yay!)

This is the gorgeous new digi stamp Melissa from Sugar Nellie, I adore this one she was gorgeous to colour.
I've used the Botanical pad paper for the background and used the LOTV swirls stamp here & there including around the image. Hope you like it.

Within a week!

Good morning all,
I'm really on the ball this morning, I've been up since 6am and saw my dear hubby off to work, then I started peeling onions! I know!...why would anyone want to do that so early in the morning, I hear you asking??? reason being I've got a chicken tikka on the go in the slow cooker and a cottage pie cooking on the hob and just a bolognese to finish off in a sec...am I good mum or what eh? lol (trying to stock the freezer up with homemade goodies)
Well I can't believe my luck, within a week I've gone from being a GDT member on 'Here come the boys' new challenge blog to a DT member! Yippy, how great is that! Now I'm blushing (so it's a good job you can't see me)because when I sent my first card for the challenge it was loved so much that Wendy(Woo) came back to me and asked me to be a DT member, how sweet of her Thanks Wendy, as you can imagine I'm a really happy bunny today and just a trifle nervous too lol.
Hope you all have a great day, I'm off to do a bit of crafting now after all that cooking, see you later, love & hugs Teresa xx

Tilda & her bunny

Well hello there my lovely blogging friends,
I’m feeling happy today, I’ve just been to town with my youngest son and even though I only came back with a water colour pad and some double sided tape, I’m happy because I spent some time with my lovely son Kieran, for a 17yr old he’s a joy to shop with, he bought himself some new clothes for his school holiday coming up soon.

Onto todays card~
I enjoyed making this one it’s Magnolia Tilda with her bunny aahhh! she‘s so sweet!
I’ve used some old papermania card that I had left over and some beautiful aqua paper which was a freebie from here ~
Tilda is coloured in copics, I’ve added a hellibore flower from Wild orchid crafts & some gorgeous shades of aqua roses from Michaels in America (Thanks to my daughter) 2 hatpins from the Ribbon Girl and I found these gorgeous feathers from a garden centre, which I wondered would they work on a card??? Now I’m wishing I’d bought more. The sentiment is a Magnolia one and the die cutting is Parisian Accents (my favourite dies) and I’ve also used stickles.
