Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head - Totally Tilda DT

 Hello lovely peeps,
I am thrilled to say my craft room sort out is nearly complete, I just need to sort through my papers and it's all done. I can't wait to get in there & play now, typically I am working three long days now but at least now I won't actually mind so much if I have one of stints of insomnia lol.
I felt a little fragile yesterday, my baby boys band had a gig on Friday night with a Foo Fighters cover band & let's just say it was a brilliant night although perhaps a little too much Bacardi was consumed lol.

Today is new challenge day at 
& this fortnight our challenge is
but not Happy Birthday as let's face it that's way too easy.
 During my big craft room sort out I discovered a little Tilda who was a Special Edition stamp that I hadn't got around to using, shame on me as she's lovely.
As I was looking through my Tilda's I had various song ideas in my head & I choose an old song Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head which I love as it's a happy song.

Hopefully I've added the video correctly as it's got some lovely piccy's, if I have click it & have a sing along & it will be stuck in your head as well as mine lol.
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, dress - BV11, BV000, BV0000, boots - G46, G43, G40, umbrella - YG67, YG63, YG61 / E34, E31, E30 / C3, C1, C00
We have a DT Call over at Totally Tilda as the 6 month term for our fabby team is almost over :(
A big thank you to my lovely teamies for the past year together, we have had so many laughs along the way they are a truly amazing group of girls & friends that the term was extended to one year but it's time to give others the same opportunity to share their Tilda love with us :)
For more info please hop over and read the DT CALL POST.
As today is Fathers Day here in the UK I couldn't not mention the wonderful man who I am so proud to have as my dad.
 I'm getting tearful thinking about him no longer being here with us, as some of you will know some years are harder than others when you have lost someone you love so much. I'm always so thankful I had him here physically with me for 25 years & he will be in my heart forever, still sitting on his pedestal as that's were daddy's girls always sit their dad's.
 There's another fella in my life who is pretty special too, my children's dad, yes the poor long suffering hubs lol. He has given me two beautiful children and we have been together for so many happy years he literally is the other half of me.
Happy Father's Day babe xxx
