Bears & Tilda's - Addicted To Stamps & Totally Tilda DT's

Good morning peeps,
I had a lovely day pottering in the garden yesterday, it was beautiful, sunny & hot and so nice to be outside, well it was until I had hysterics as I felt something in my hair and it was a flipping spider & I'm not talking a tiddler here neither. As I knocked it out my hair it landed on my shoulder and ran! I wasn't sure where it was heading other than towards my neck but quick as a flash I'd whipped my top off & ran inside shrieking. My god didn't that hurt my shoulder but by then I was far more concerned about where that beast was & I was bent double in the kitchen, hair untied and was frantically running my hands through my hair making sure he hadn't gone back in among my curls. I never did find it so hopefully he is still somewhere in the garden, or better still moved next door to live with one of my neighbours lol.

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

The photos aren't the best as it was such a dreary day when I took these and I didn't get around to taking anymore before giving this little card to my mum for her 10th Wedding Anniversary.
Ingredients -
Image - Forever Friends
Medium -Copics
Bling - The Hobby House & The Ribbon Girl
Lace & Seam Binding - stash

The Copic colours I've used are -
bear - E55, E53, E51, R20 heart - RV00, RV000, RV0000

The sentiment is computer generated, I've used a new font which I downloaded free from Dafont.Com 
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes, Cute Card Thursday - a stitch in time, Crafting For All Seasons - stitching, Divas By Design - celebrate, Stampavie & More - animals, Everybody Art - anything goes, Craft Your Passion - emboss it, Make It Monday - anything goes

Next up I have a midway reminder that our 
challenge at
is running for one more week.
These little bookmarks are so quick and easy to make all you need is some extra large paperclips, nesties and of course a sweet Tilda or 3 :)
When I made these I realised that not only are they quick and easy peasy bookmarks but they could also be used as embellies on SMASH book pages :)
I'm entering my bookmarks in the following challenges -
Fairytale - anything metal, Frosted Designs - office supplies, Fussy & Fancy - back to school, Just Magnolia - pretty in pink, Tilda's Town - back to school, 4 Crafty Chicks - back to school, Crop Stop - back to school, Crazy Amigo - back to school, Lollipop Crafts - back to school.

That's it for me today peeps, thanks or stopping by
