Autumn Tilda

Happy Thursday-almost-Friday everyone!! Fall is here in Wisconsin -- I think I missed the colors changing on all the leaves when I blinked -- geez they were green, then I looked away for a sec & now they're all on the ground! My son has to leave the house at 6:30 in the morning to catch the bus & it is sooooo dark & soooooo cold -- downright creepy -- I do NOT enjoy sending my child off into the darkness every morning!

Anyway -- on to my card:



In keeping with the fall spirit, I used Standing Fall Tilda -- it will be a while before I am able to buy any of the FAB new Tildas so I'll have to make do with what I have. **gasp** -- did I really just say that?? I still buy all my Magnolias -- among other things -- at 7 Kids College Fund. I find Tab has the best prices & the best service. I colored Tilda with my Copic markers -- & used wayyy more Stickles than I meant to --see the seam binding? Well -- I didn't think about adding that until everything was all glued down -- so not only did I have to *thread* the seam binding through the raffia lace -- but as I was tying it & adjusting it, I felt wet on my finger. Yes, I applied the Stickles to her wings before I started playing with the seam binding -- & I forgot about it. Nothing like dragging my hand through wet Stickles once or 10 times. Let's just say Tilda has glitter in spots that no young girl should have glitter!




Here's a close up -- errant glitter pieces & all --

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Berry Sweet Challenge -- Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp -- Buttons

Papertake Weekly -- Anything Goes Optional Bling -- do Dew Drops count as bling?)


Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Mine will not be so great. I opened our pantry the other day & there was a bit of water on the floor -- looked up to find a big ole water spot on our ceiling. Our pantry happens to be under our bathroom so that is not good, & I have no idea how we will find where it's coming from. I'm thinking it might be a pipe -- but even if I call a plumber how are they going to know? Will they have to remove the wall? Ugh -- I smell lots of money going down the pipes -- literally :(
