Sketch Saturday #73

Hi everyone, well you had a day without Tilda yesterday, but she's back again today lol!
As soon as I saw this week's fabulous sketch for Sketch Saturday I knew it was the perfect opportunity to show off my latest (and sweetest) little girl. Absolutely too cute to spook!

Card Details:
* Image - Magnolia 'So Spooky Tilda'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania and glitter card
* Alphabet peel offs - Dawn Bibby
* Glitter - Stickles 'Black Diamond' & 'Frosted Lace'
* Everything else from my stash

I have been visiting my favourite blogs, as usual, but haven't had time to leave comments recently so I'm hoping to put this right and get some serious blog hopping done this weekend.
The plan then is to concentrate on getting some non-challenge cards done for the next few days, but you know the old saying 'the best laid plans...' so we'll see how things go. Who knows I may even be back with another Tilda card again lol!

Chrissie, what a lovely card. I didn't like Tilda in the beginning but she's grown on me more and more and I have a couple in my collection.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog and entering my blog candy. Your name will be added to the hat and I wish you all the best. I will be in touch again after the closing date if you are lucky enough to be my blog candy winner.

Best wishes

Kym xxx

I still only have the one Tilda in my collection chrissie but these later ones are lovely and you obviously enjoy using them. This card (as with it's predecessors)is just lovely although the comment about the alcohol pens has me a tad worried.........especially with what I'm asking of you soon!! LOL!
