Sunny Days - Totally Tilda DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I was a good girl yesterday, well goodish! I decided to go to a different garden centre rather than my usual. I went to one without a craft shop to lure me into, but instead I spent a small fortune on some lovely plants and came home all inspired to do some gardening and spent ages out there pottering. My garden has been neglected a bit since I discovered this card making addiction, hubby hates gardening & Gareth & Jodie run a mile at the mention of helping me out there so I've a choice of doing it myself or just growing weeds lol.

Today I have a DT card to share, it's a mid challenge reminder that there is still time to enter the challenge at
which is
You don't have to use a Magnolia cat or dog for the challenge, any image or photo of a cat or dog with our sweet Tilda is fine.

Ingredients -
Images - all Magnolia
Medium - distressed inks
Papers - Love Letters, First Edition Papers
Flowers - Kort & Godt & Prima
Tools - MS punch around the page, Woodware mini butterfly punch, X-Cut butterfly punch

When I had a rummage through my stamps a couple of weeks ago I discovered this sweet Tilda, the picnic rug & the Spring background in among them, and none of them had so much as a whiff of an ink pad, the poor neglected souls lol.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Paper Sundaes - Birthdays, 2 Sisters - how does your garden grow, Magnolia Down Under - favourite things (Magnolias, PATP, flowers, sparkle), Dream Valley - old & new stash (new papers & dog stamp), Delightful Sketches - flowers, Stamp Something - anything goes, Top Tip Tuesday - floral frenzy, Crafty Ann's - birthday, Papertake - fancy a punch, Corrosive - birthdays

I'm off to force myself into my craft room as I've a DT card due in the DT blog today, sigh, it's a chore I know but I have to do it lol.
Thanks for stopping by
