My First Tilda - Totally Tilda DT

Good morning peeps,
I started to try and write my post yesterday and schedule it but I left it too late in the evening & was so zonked out on painkillers I kept nodding off and didn't have a clue what I was doing, I've just had to delete all the mumbo jumbo I'd written so maybe it was a good job I didn't schedue it lol.
Hubby is taking me out for lunch today, that man fears my cooking so much he'd rather pay to have a good meal than risk chewing my burnt offerings lol.

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

My lovely teamies have made such gorgeous inspiration for you to feast your eyes on, pop over and take a peek.
I've gone all out shabby chic & used so many different ingredients on my little wall hanging for my craft room so I am going to do my post a little different today and hope I haven't missed anything.
I've inked up some of my older Magnolia's to make my wall hanging, this was my very first Tilda and many, many, Tilda's later she is still one of my all time favourites :)

The Copic colours I've used are -
Tilda - skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, E93, hair - E44, E43, E41, top & bow - RV11, RV10, RV0000, C1, jeans - E74, E71, E70 / E43, E41 / R81 / E53, E51, E50 hat - E53, E51, E50.
Wrapped Violet - W6, W4, W2, W00, flower - R89, R85, R83, R81, RV00 / YG63, YG61, bow - RV63, RV52, RV00
Blueberry Label - C5, C3, C1, C00
Roses - R85, R83, R81, RV0000
The paper garland wrapped around the top is by Melissa Frances which I have had for ages and just not got around to using before, the flowers are a mix of Kort & Godt, Prima, Wild Orchid & Hooked On Crafts. I've added loads of crystal glamour dust to the flowers and a little on sweet Tilda too for some lovely sparkle.
The large brad is from Whiff Of Joy, the butterflies are Cheery Lynn dies, the chipboard leaves are from Make It Crafty, the lace is from Wild Orchid, the heart doily is by Royal Lace and the pearls are Melissa Frances.
The paper is from Magnolia's latest Turning Leaves Collection not that you can see much of it now it's be sprayed and covered with embellies :)
The large leaves are Bon Voyage foilage Doo Hickey and the sentiment is from Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow collection.
The twine on the So Wrapped Lovely Doo Hickey is from Hemptique, the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl & the little keys charm was from eBay.
I'm entering my wall hanging in the following challenges -
Make It Monday & Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes, Just Magnolia - bingo (middle row), Craft Your Days Away - doilies & lace, Di's Digis - pile on the flowers

I have a little appeal to share asking if anyone can please spare a handmade card or even two to send to a 13 year old young lady called Maddy who is going to be starting a 6 month course of chemotheraphy and will also be receiving a stem cell transplant from her 15 year old sister Melanie.
I think they are both are incredibly brave & will always remember how thrilled my Jodie was to receive handmade cards from Do Crafts friends when she was poorly and spent 5 months in & out of hospital, so I will be sending cards to both Maddy & Melanie.
 Please pop over to the
 and read Jason's post for the card drive
