Tilda The Angel - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Today is the day my baby girl goes back to college after a very long summer holiday, they broke up in early May so that's a 4 month holiday which I think is a ridiculously long break. Jode is going to be a nightmare getting up in the mornings, but at least her mobile phone bill should go back to normal, I can't believe she'd gone over her huge contract allowance and cost me a small fortune last month, mummy wasn't happy I can tell you, flipping kids lol.

Today is new challenge day at
and this week our challenge is

Oh yes I'm going to do it to you again like in my last post, I've picked a lovely song so are you ready to sing with me?

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we´re grey and old
´cos I´ve been told
that salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I’m lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I’m loving angels instead ............

My card is of course inspired by the scrummy Robbie Williams song

Ingredients -
Image - Sparkling Tilda, Magnolia, she's so cute & I love the mini Sparkling Tilda too
Medium - Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye
Pearls - Hero Arts
Sentiment - Magnolia
Large Brad - American Crafts
Rose - Prima
I have made a snowflake circle around the edge of the nestie by using the corner punch snowflake from the Aspen punch around the page and the MS Artic snowflake. All the snowflakes have been covered in lots of diamond stickles for that lovely sparkle.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a whopping $50 in store spending spree for the lucky winner.

Come on girls lets finish with the chorus -

And through it all
She offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call
She won't forsake me
I'm lovin' angels instead......

You'll be humming / singing it all day with any luck lol.
Before I go I want to say a huge thank you to our lovely Heidi & Steph for another very generous DT spend, woo hoo I'm off shopping.
