Tilda thank you card

Hi peeps I've been disorganised since having the grandchildren .  Normally the craft items I use are in organised chaos in and around the dining room table, fridge, microwave etc I think you get the picture, I had to clear everything away  and now I can't find anything so I've spent most of the afternoon running up and down stairs trying to complete this card.  The good thing is I've probably lost a pound or two which would be nice.
I had intended using the sewing machine on this card but I didn't have the energy to carry the machine  down stairs so I drew the stitching instead.  I've used Basic Grey card stock.  Tilda is coloured with Pro Markers.  The flower I made yesterday with a few others using sheer fabrics and beads.  Ribbon completes the card.  I've used the sketch from this months CLP challenge

This is my entry into the following challenges

enjoyed reading your paragraph about creating this card! made me chuckle - I always think I should lose a couple pounds from running up and down but I guess I'm to used to it! lol So glad you linked to the first ATS Magnolia challenge with your Tilda card! She's a doll! Pretty colors and all!

Oh Wowza how beautiful. Tilda is coloured in beautifully. I love the flower you made it's gorgeous. The Sentiment letters are so pretty. I know how it is having to run after grand kids. I have 3 but I have their own scrap stuff TOTALLY seperate from mine. Heaven forbid if they got into my good papers or touched my beloved Prima's. LOL
Thank you for playing along with us in this months challenge at CLP. We hope to see you again next months.
