TOMIC Get Inspired

Hi again,

I'm missing the kids loads, and there's times I'm just wandering waiting until 3, but saying that I'm enjoying having time to myself. I can still get a bit done when they're in but they're soon fighting when I leave the room, so I end up giving up as it's too stressful!

This card is for the TOMIC Get Inspired challenge, where there is also a photo for inspiration.

This is the first time I've coloured this Tilda in, and I'll be inking her up again, soon. I've carried the mistletoe from her hair through using a doohickey mistletoe border die. I thought the green layer I used looked too green, so I've calmed all of the edges down with White acrylic paint.

I've distressed the edges of Tilda with pumice stone ink, and then stamped gold Holly from stempelglede. The sentiment is from lili of the valley and I've made a tag using a sizzix die and jump rings. The White poinsettias are from wild orchid crafts and I've added a few stickles.

It was my daughters first full week at school last week, until 3 (as she's just started, in reception, as she was born after April the first 2 weeks she had to come home after dinner) and she was so proud of herself when she was awarded the star of the week award. Of course we were too. But then yesterday she was home poorly, and has kindly given me her bug-but I think I'm over the worst.

Such an eventful week and it's only Wednesday, lol.

Take care,
