Peachy Tilda!

Great to see you here my friends - I hope you are all well! I have managed to give my craft room a spring clean today - wow, it feels so good to see my desk again, LOL!! It's amazing how the sunshine and +temps lifts ones spirits!
I snuck down to my craft room after lunch and put together this cutie Peachy Tilda card. She's coloured with my copics and cut out. I've followed Sue's sketch which is this weeks challenge over at Totally Papercrafts. The dp is MME 'Bloom & Grow' and the lace is my super Dollar Store find! The roses are also from the Dollar Store and the cherry blossoms come from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from the Magnolia Winter kit. I sewed around the edges which have also been distressed. I sponged 'Tea Dye' distress ink on the nestie circle too. I will also enter this card into the Just Magnolia challenge this week for 'Birthdays'.
Thanks for popping by today - it really cheers me to know you've taken the time to come by, look and leave a comment!
We have a great looking forecast this week with temps rising to +5 and sunshine - maybe Spring is finally on its way! I miss the beautiful daffodils starting to bloom in the UK at this time - it's my wedding anniversary on Sunday and it always reminds me of the gorgeous daffodils that were in our photos! Have a wonderful afternoon and evening everyone!
