Funky festive Tilda!!!

Good afternoon peeps!!!
Its another grey, dreary and wet one here in Lincolnshire today so I have been busy making bits and bobs!! I am absolutely shattered as little mo has been rather poorly with his asthma this week so I am functioning in zombie mode!!!
I have been busy pootling along doing my christmas cards for the lovely girls at work though and this is one of 8 I made on tuesday and wednesday. I saw a card very similar to this one in clare's shop, Cloud Nine, over in horncastle and I just had to have a go at it.
I knew I had the most gorgeous and festive coloured red gingham paper on my Colour Me Happy cd from Funkyhand. There are a couple of shades of red gingham on the cd ( along with some other very gorgeous gingham colours of course!!) but this little red one I used can be found in the Blissful Baby section of the cd. I simply trimmed it down and inked up the edges with my red versacolour cube.
I decided I needed to add some yummilicious magnolia swirls around the edges of mine and used my fabby new lacey circle nesties for the sentiment.
Tilda is coloured with promarkers.
Hair- sandstone and tan.
Clothing- berry red, crimson and satin.
skin- vanilla and pastel pink ( boo hoo hoo though as my vanilla promarker has now runneth out...!)
and a tiny squidge of highlighting with my white gel pen.
A bit of lovely red satin ribbon and martha doily hearts to sit on and Tilda was festively happy!!!!!
Tonight I am hoping to get Mo to stay awake until 6pm, cross your fingers for me peeps!!!! he has managed to just about stay awake until 5:30pm 2 nights in a row so we are pushing for a bit more tonight!! lol!!!! ( bet he still gets up at 5am though!!!!!).
He is sat playing with his shlech knights and a cardboard box made into a fort at the moment!!!
Right off for a womble around blog land now. Enjoy the rest of your weekends peeps!!!
Hugs Lou xxxxxx
