Sweet Little Kitchen Tilda

Hello again Crafting friends,
 how are you this morning?
Here as promised is the lovely Tilda back again, 
 I'm not going to say it, you know how much I like this one lol. 
I decided to make an easel card for a change, it's been a while since I made one.

I've used
Kitchen Tilda with wooden spoon and Tilda's shelf with cross stitch. 
both painted with distress reinkers.
Pion papers
sweet little apples from Live & Love crafts
Gorgeous gingham ribbon, natural hemp twine and cute little charm from The Ribbon Girl, the charm (on the tag) is called Daisy May and she's holding a box of apples, so cute! and there's four different ones to choose from.
Roses are WOC and pearls are Kort & Godt
and of course I always like to add a little wooden rolling pin with this Tilda
Well it's a dull and dismal day today so I'm spending the day crafting and blog hopping
Have a great day, see you later
