Hope you're all having a great weekend, I've never stopped. My club kit arrived on Thursday and I've only got round to inking one up today, mind you it was at 6.30am! I've managed to finish this card too between baking and egg giving. It's my nephews Christening tomorrow and I'm making a few quiches and a load of cupcakes. So I'm having a  quick sit down and a cuppa while I post this.

I live right on the coast and have spent numerous hours when I was little plodging, mainly in rock pools and the paddly pool on the beach so this one was definitely the first one I had to ink up. I'm not to great at colouring curls, but I'm quite happy with this one. I'm a bit happier with my clouds this time though.

The papers are Inkado. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the ruffle ribbon and top stitch thread are from the ribbon girl, I'm not sure where the lace if from. I've popped a few mini butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch on the flowers, just to tie in the paper and the butterflies around Tilda.

I'm entering this card into Just Magnolia where 'anything goes' this week. It's also going into the challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge where they want to see 'Things With Wings', there's plenty of butterflies on here, and the flowers are from WOC.  I'm also entering it into Fashionista, this is a new challenge site and for their first theme is 'Anything Goes For Girls', I think it's quite girlie.

Better get back into the kitchen, no doubt I'll have my 'helpers', or that should be 'spoon lickers', lol.
