Trick or Treat - Totally Tilda DT Card

Hello peeps,
OMG last night I had the best nights sleep I have had in over 3 & a half weeks since I slipped a disc in my back, a whole 6 and a half lovely hours and I'm knackered now lol.
I was so annoyed with myself yesterday, I had the house to myself and intended making a card with one of the sweet new Christmas Tilda's but I just couldn't get comfy sat at my desk so I had to give up, but I did manage to visit loads of you instead so there's always a bright side. I still can't believe that in almost 20 years of nursing I never hurt my back like this, and long before the compulsory use of hoists two of us used to lift 20+ stone people in and out of beds, wheelchairs, baths etc, I reckon I must be either going soft in my old age or falling apart  lol.

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

Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - free digi downloads from HERE & HERE, thank you
Sentiments - from our lovely Lynne HERE who's sponsoring this challenge, thanks hun xx
Pin & Twirly thingies - homemade
Flowers - Prima & Wild Orchid

Halloween cards are one of my least favourite cards to make, only because I have no use for them as we don't send Halloween cards in the UK so they just end up being tossed in the bin which is a shame and a waste of time for me, of course I don't actually "toss them" in the bin if they have sweet Tilda on they are placed gently in the bin lol.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
 Fussy & Fancy - Halloween/Fall, Just Magnolia - anything goes, Simply Create - older than 6 months, Hanna & Friends - bingo (pearls, flowers & pins), Crafting For All Seasons - Fall flowers/ Pumpkin, Little Darlings - Fall/Halloween, The Paper Shelter - Halloween, Clear It Out - Halloween, Everybody Art - sketch, Papertake - anything goes, Tuesday Throwdown - Halloween, Magnolia Down Under - Halloween, ABC DT Challenge - pumpkins

A little reminder for you, there is one more week to enter our sketch challenge at
pop over and take a peek Nadell has made this lovely sketch to play with.


That's me done peep's, I am going to try and grab an hour in my craft room before hubby comes home from work.
Thanks for stopping by

  2. Hi Hopefully the full nights sleep will continue. I think it's our bodies way of telling us were doing too much ! I started walking home 4 miles every night lost weight and felt great then my back went !! I figure I can't be superwomen anymore and to take it easy lol !! Wow love your black doily and edging die\punch so cool with this Tilda !! I hate putting my cards in the bin lol I give them away to fundraisers etc. Hope you get a chance to colour these new Tildas ! Crafty Hugs Kitty ;0)

  11. Morning Mandy, Well, considering you don't care for doing this type of card, you made a fabulous job of it....I love it, please don't chuck in the bin, it seems such a shame....lol.....

    Glad you managed to get some sleep, nothing worse than back problems, it can drive you nuts, and your not getting soft in your old age, I think your a tough little cookie to put up with a slipped disc...it hurts...lol...take care.xx

  23. I HATE Halloween but like you make a couple of cards for challenges etc but never send them cos we don't here do we? I LOVE this one tho - she is so sweet. Think I will have to succumb and get a couple of these wee Tilda's to see how I get on with them. Hope your back gets better soon - know exactly what pain you are in and I am so glad I got mine fixed - gave me back my life tho it still hurts bad in the cold or the wet - shall I emigrate to the sunshine?

  53. Hi there, I just wanted to pop by and tell you about the Wild Rose Studio blog hop, you could win 7 of their stamps and three paper pads, all you have to do is make a christmas themed card, and you dont have to use a Wild Rose studio stamp or product. (Although we would love it if you did)And then comment, on all of the DT blogs. Come and join in the fun. Would love to see you there
