Hugs & Kisses Tilda

Good morning & Happy Saturday to all!! It is FREEZING here this morning...not even 60 degrees!! Brrrrr.....at this rate we'll have snow falling by the end of September!!

It seems like it takes me forever & a day to create a card lately. I have a long list of projects to work on & I have never been so putzy!! This week has been all about getting ready for school. The shopping, the Open House, all the forms to fill out, more shopping because we forgot something....it's pure chaos & school hasn't even started yet!! If this is a preview of the coming year, I'm in trouble!!



So today's card (which I started 3 days ago) is made with one of my very first Tildas. When I bought the Pumpkin Tilda that I used on THIS CARD, I also bought the 2 Cherry Tildas. And what luck that the Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad has some paper with cherries in it!! I used SU's Purely Pomegranate for the matte.....the flower is made up of the Cuttlebug scalloped circle dies, & the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels set. The little cherry charm is from Ebay.....had to buy those after I bought the Cherry Tildas, lol.




The usual close up :)




Here's a pic of the inside. I had been searching for the Sizzlits strawberry die, which has been discontinued. I found it on Ebay, & the same seller was selling this cherry die. Apparently I love fruit, lol, so I bought both of them. Added chalk ink for a bit of highlights....I think it's the perfect touch :)

You can find Cherry Tilda & the Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad at 7 Kids College Fund. You can also preorder the NEW Basic Grey papers! She has amazing prices & service!! I think I'll just take one of everything :)




And for those of you who so loved my picture of the walking stick the other day, here's another creature hanging on our patio door. I swear if it weren't for this door, we wouldn't see half the stuff we do!! This cicada has been hanging out for a few days. He's alive, I checked, lol. He just really wants to come into our house. He doesn't realize we have 2 big ole tabbies who would probably have him for a snack!





Hope you all have a great weekend!! Thanks for visiting, & don't forget to enter my blog candy above!!!

Love your Tilda cards. Isn't she just the sweetest! Your cicada picture reminded me of the other day - I was at the library and saw a sparrow catching a cicada to have as a snack. It looked sort of odd, since the bug was almost as big as the bird. :-)

Bring on the snow! :-)

Michelle,
I think your card is wonderful! Great choice of all of the paper. I love the charm - have to find these cuties and get them.....

I have never seen a cicada before! Read about them in books and never knew what they looked like. Yesterday I couldn't believe that 'stick' was something alive. You are giving me an education and many thanks for it!!!

Hugs, Candy

Karen Wilson said...

This card is adorable! I love it. Everything matches so well. Love the charm. TFS!

Isn't it the cicada's that make that long noise in the summer time? Is it as big as it looks there? I've never seen one. We've had some weird looking bugs around here lately as well. With this weird weather comes weird bugs! It's cold and damp here today too. :(

Lacey said...

Ok, before I can comment on the card, I have to ask...how big is that bug?! Holy moly! If that was on my screen, I would NEVER go near it!!!
Your card is beautiful. I really need of those papers.
Oh, I would say it gets better once school starts...but mine have been back for a week and I am already exhausted with the back and forth between 2 schools!!
