Afternoon All
Just thought I'd drop by and show you a card I made for a friend of mine for her children to give to their Grandparents on their 50th Wedding Anniversary ... and it got me thinking "that's a good idea for a set of sentiments" LOL so I made a set of 6 sentiments of Special Anniversaries

This fab little image is from LOTV and I've coloured with Promarkers, the corners are by Marianne Design and are available at Crafts 4 You
The sentiment is, as said above, from a brand new set of 6 Special Anniversaries at CRAFTS 4 YOU
Hope you like it and I'll catch up with you soon :)

Shsssssh Baby Tilda is Sleeping

Afternoon All
Sorry I'm late in posting today ... been clothes shopping with my daughter .. had a lovely time and bought some lovely new clothes :)
Anyway ... just thought I'd let you know that you still have this week to enter over at TOTALLY TILDA where our theme this time is :
There are a few more examples the DT have come up so check them out if you are stuck what to do :)
Here's another idea I came up with ....
This is one of Susie's fabulous door hangers from DIE CUT DREAMS - it's shut for a bit while Susie moves house but will be open soon :) 
I've used sleeping Tilda and coloured her with promarkers - the sentiment is one of mine and was a freebie a while ago at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU in either blue or pink 
I made this as a present for my daughter's future brother and sister-in-law who have just had a gorgeous little baby girl called Ava-Grace :)
