Mmmmmm Chocolates - Totally Tilda DT Card

Good morning lovely peeps,
I was having a lovely blogging session last night until pins & needles got the better of me grrrrrr, so annoying. I wish I could just sit & do nothing sometimes but I get restless after about a minute & just have to do something, I annoy myself as I am such a fidget so I do kind of understand hubby's little rants of "for god sake woman sit down & sit still" lol. I cannot remember the last time I actually "watched" a film or even a whole TV programme! My eyes flick to the screen from time to time but I listen to the TV instead of watching it while colouring, blogging, making pins etc, & when I actually stop & think about it I am doing hubs a favour really by making cards as at least I sit still for a little while, nice female logic hey lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight we have an 

As always my lovely teamies have made such beautiful creations for your inspiration, hop over and take a peek :)
 Here is the scrummy picture for your inspiration, lovely isn't it?
 I am on a mission to ink up my previously unused Magnolia's & although I have used this adorable little Tilda once before I have never inked up the gorgeous Chocolate Heart Box.
Instead of my usual masking I have stamped sweet Tilda separately & fussy cut her out & added some depth by mounting her with silicon glue. Some people leave a white line around the images when they cut them out which I like on other people's cards but whenever I do it myself I'm never happy with it so it's very fussy cutting for a very fussy me lol.  
Supplies not linked - papers are Maja Design, Cats Life Press sentiment, Whiff Of Joy large brad, chipboard butterfly is from Make It Crafty, the pink ribbon & doily are from my stash.
 The Copic colours I've used are -
Tilda - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - C1, C00 /RV95, RV93, RV91 socks - C1, C0, C00, shoes - W4, W2, W0, wrapped heart - V93, V91, V000 / W2, W1, W00
Chocolate Heart Box - W4, W2, W1, W00 / V0000, RV93, RV91, chocolates - E59, E57, E55
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes, Inspire Me Friday - anything goes, Drunken Stampers - all that glitters, Sweet Stampin' - ribbon, Totally Gorjuss - flowers, Paper-crafting Journey - for a girl, The Paper Shelter - anything goes, The Sisterhood of Crafters - hearts, Creative Card Crew - girly, Papertake - tie up your loose ends, Top Tip Tuesday - layers, Simon Says Stamp & Show - what are you known for? (has to be Magnolia's, glitter & MS punched frames)
That's me done for today lovely peeps, thanks for stopping by :)

  8. Beautiful card... the detail is wonderful... I think the reason a lot of us craft is because we are fidgets that can't sit still... I am another one who mostly listens to telly rather than watch it... I get it from my mum, she is just the same... and yes she makes cards too...
