Totally Tilda's Gone Totally White, & The Invites Are Finished Yaaaayyyyyyyyyy

Good morning peeps,
  I've gone an overslept which has thrown me right out thanks to a wakeful night & watching some really terrible cheesy Christmas films on TV. I dropped the remote control on the floor & Daisy Mae was snuggled into me fast asleep & I didn't have the heart to wake her so I could move & pick up the remote so I was stuck watching them, softy or what lol.

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

Please make sure you read the rules peeps, our Ms Sugar has been tough on us girls this time & my lovely teamies have really made some stunning cards but the ONLY colouring allowed is skin & hair, no shading whatsoever, no grounding your Tilda's & no shading around her, not even a tiny bit of green from your flower leaves is allowed.
Ingredients -
Image - Magnolia
Medium - Copics
Paper - Bazzil Basics
Pearls - Melissa Frances & Hero Arts
Sentiment - Magnolia
Pom Pom Trim - The Ribbon Girl
Tools - Docraft, Crafts-Too & Cuttlebug, Magnolia Doo Hickey Mistletoe & Hellebores, MS Aspen PATP for the snowflakes

I will admit I really struggled with this one even though I'm a big lover of  WOW cards, it just seemed soooooo wrong not to add a bit of shading to her dress folds, grounding her & shading around her but I overcome that by sparkling her dress & cutting her out. I quite like my card now as long as I don't look at the stick her star is on as that really bugs me lol.
I have a little pile of Tilda's with only her skin & hair coloured, I had to keep going until I found one I could cope with without shading & I do think the totally white looks really effective.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Midnight Madness - fab sketch #132, Come & Get It - Christmas, Let's Ink It Up - Christmas, 2 Sisters - punches &/or dies, Di's Digi Designs - all white, One Stop Craft - let it snow, Fairytale - Christmas, Jingle Belles - wrapping it up, Just Magnolia - anything goes opt sparkle, Miami Doodles - make it shine, Simply Create Two - Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - let it snow, Delightful Challenges - let it snow, Crafting For All Seasons - white on white, Crafts & Me - pearls & swirls,  Cards & More - snowflakes, Scrap Creations - Christmas, Ladybug Crafts Ink - white on white, Oldie But A Goodie - Christmas but no red or green


 And now the reason I have had so little time to blog as well as having hubby off work is I have been trying to get 25 invitations made for my great nephew Ollie's 1st birthday party, and at 9.35pm last night I stuck the very last star on and finished them yaaaaaayyyyyyy, I just had to sit & guard them all from a very inquisitive Daisy Mae until the Colall 3D glue on the stars had dried.
He is so scrummy, he's such a happy and chilled out little man just like his daddy my beautiful nephew Robert who I absolutely adore.
I started die cutting "PARTY" & remembered I hadn't asked Sammie what she wanted on the front of them so I also have a little tub of letters ready for later use, good job I checked lol.
And here they all are, 25 scrummy little smiling Ollie's, ahhhh. One thing making all of these reminded me was I hate mass production it reminded me of why I stepped down from the Crafters Companion DT, but every time I got fed up with them I just had to look at that little smiley face and melted.
Sammie & Ollie have been around this morning & collected them, I just need to do a little repair job on my Christmas tree now as Ollie loved it.  Sammie was so worried about the tree but I found it quite funny watching the angel on the top wobbling about, she's leaning so much now I don't know how she's stayed on there lol.
A little reminder the CHRISTMAS challenge at ADDICTED TO STAMPS has one more week to run

There is also one more day to enter my candy if anyone wants to and hasn't already.
Thanks for stopping by
