Die Crazy! - Simon Says Stamp DT & Lingonberry Tilda

Hello lovely peeps!
My baby boy Gareth leaves for his holiday in Australia at 2am tomorrow morning so I am a sad muma as my baby will be away for almost 6 weeks & will be on the other side of the world at Christmas :(
For him it will be a wonderful holiday and a time to experience a very different Christmas than he has been used to, but I am going to miss him so much.

Little Miss Tilda has been absent from my blog for way too long so today as well as my DT card Tilda is back :)
 It's Wednesday which means ..........    

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing our lovely own brand
 exclusive products on our creations this week.

You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

Today's DT card features three different Simon Says Stamp dies, Holiday Frames, Eliza Snowflake & Village Dies & also the gorgeous Falling Snow stencil & one of my favourite card stocks, Simon's Woodgrain card stock.

I'm entering my card  in the following challenges -
 Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper - anything goes, The Sisters Of Craft - anything goes
 Here she is last, little Tilda is back :)

I hadn't even been aware of how long it's been since I coloured a sweet Tilda & creating this card made me realise how much I'd missed colouring this little cutie & this is Lingonberry Tilda.
It will definitely not be long before another sweet Tilda appears on my blog.
