I love Tilda!

Hi everyone, well it's official, I actually DO love Tilda (how sad is that!) and I really think that this latest kit is the cutest yet! I know, I say this every time they bring out a new kit, but I just think this little Tilda cannot be bettered (until the next kit?)
My card is to fit 2 challenges, the first being The Pink Elephant which had this fabulous sketch, so had to join in. I think I've just about made it in time!
The second challenge is this week's Just Magnolia where they had a colour combo challenge of Grey and Pink with Black optional. I had this new Tilda that I was desperate to use and I thought she fitted the bill perfectly. Only problem was she had peaches and I needed them to be apples, so just pretend!

Card Details:
* Image - Magnolia 'Peachy Tilda'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Black and Grey papers - Papermania
* Pink papers - Raspberry Road digital downloads
* Everything else from my stash

My Mum bought me the new set of Promarkers for an early birthday present. Yes, all 56 of them!!!! (I got them from Joanna Sheen's shop as she was offering such a fantastic deal on them) They are fabulous and I'm having such fun with them at the moment, colouring is probably my favourite occupation anyway and with all these new colours I'm in 7th heaven.
I'm still busily making (even more) little gift bags and I think this may be set to continue after Christmas too as my lovely hubby has bought me a Scor-Pal for my birthday prezzie (yes, I KNOW I've had all my presents before the day, but what's a girl to do??!!) and I've seen some fabulous tutorials for lots of boxes and bags mmmm scrummy!

I'm obviously going through a really lucky phase at the moment, because on top of everything else I was lucky enough to win Bev's fabulous candy! It arrived this week and was even more gorgeous in the flesh (such fast delivery honey, thanks so much!)

Sorry this has been such a long post and I've sort of rambled on, it's 'cos I'm so excited!
Thanks for continuing to visit and for all your lovely comments and if I don't manage to post tomorrow I'll be back bright and early on Monday morning with the latest Sketch & Stash DT card.

Well, what wonderful pressies from your Mum and husband. It's a pity you live too far away or I'd come over and help do some colouring - one for you, two for me etc (only joking!!). Enjoy these pressies and also enjoy your blog candy. It gives such a lift when you are a winner. Can you do me a favour. I was going to do some blog candy for my birthday but it's too late so decided to do for my blogaversary. Can you tell me how I go about getting it to stay at the top of my threads on my blog - too technical for me!!! I haven't got any of the new Tildas but I do think they are gorgeous. Sending you some big hugs, Kym xxx

You lucky lucky lady. It looks like everything is going your way at the moment. Let's hope it continues. I also think the Tildas are getting better and better and this one's no exception. (Still wish they had a mouth though). I love what you've done with this one and who cares whether she's carrying apples or peaches? You've coloured it so beautifully.
