Tilda's Faithful Friend - Totally Tilda DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Yaaaayyyyy I've made it here!!!
We've had thunderstorms the past two nights and apart from me being a big baby and not liking it our Internet connection and satellite signal for the TV is playing up, fingers crossed it stays on long enough to at least let me finish my post. I kept trying to schedule my post yesterday in case the problem got any worse but lost connection so many times I had to give up in the end :(

Today is new challenge day at
and this fortnight our challenge is

As always please remember you MUST use a Tilda on your creation, it doesn't have to be a Magnolia cat or dog, and can even be a photo of your cat or dog.
I've been having a rummage around in my Magnolia stamp collection and have so many sweet Maggie's I'd forgotten I'd bought and have never even inked up including these two, so I think I'm going to have to be really organised and stamp them and store the stamped images in a book or folder so I can see exactly what I've got as I have a couple I've bought two of, duh, lol.

Ingredients -
Paper - stash
Flowers - Magnolia, Prima, The Works & Wild Orchid
Sparkle - crystal glamour dust & diamond stickles
Pearls - Blue Moon

The die cut I've used to make my card is a gift from our lovely Susie & can be bought from Susie's shop Die Cut Dreams when it reopens after Susie & her family have moved house.
The pin was a plain pin from Whiff Of Joy and I added some beads and a small blob of glossy accents to keep them in place, and the wired ribbon was from a craft show
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Fairy Fun Fridays - for the girls, Secret Crafter - dust off your stash (stamps), Just Magnolia - anything goes, Miami Doodles - lets get girly, Ink It Up - embellish it, Crazy 4 Challenges - flowers, 7 Kids College Fund - April showers bring May Flowers, Craft Us Crazy - mum / flowers, Papertake - anything goes, Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge, A Spoon Full Of Sugar - white + 1, Ladybug Crafts -                going dotty,  Oldie But A Goodie - say it with flowers


I am just finishing off the punch around the page tutorial and all being well with my Internet connection I will upload it tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by

Needless to say, I pulled it off, but I don't think I'll be doing it again anytime soon. hehe!!!
