Thank you so much for the lovely emails I've had asking if I'm o.k, as you can see I am back on my poor neglected blog after being a poorly girl & thankfully feeling sooooooo much better, I'm just feeling a bit shaky from the steroids & wiped out but raring to catch up & get inking & colouring again :)
I have decided to take a month's break from my design teams work except for my weekly Simon Says Stamp DT to ease the pressure from all the DT commenting & deadlines for cards etc, and give myself a chance to recover properly & just do a bit of whatever I want to really, have a play at making those things I keep meaning to try but never seem to have enough time & more importantly catching up with you, my lovely blog visitors :)
Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is
I have at last got around to inking up one of my new Tilda's, OMG this collection is adorable & I've been so naughty & bought, ahem just a few lol.
Today's Tilda reminds me so much of my baby girl except for Jodie always carried her beloved "manky pillow" or anything silky she could get her hands on! I used to have to check what she had with her before we left the house as she was quite partial to anything silky feeling she could twiddle & a few times I'd strapped her in her pushchair blissfully ignorant that she was happily "twiddling" & displaying my undies to the world lol.
