Tilda with Kitty - A card for 2 challenges!

Hello all!

I hope you're all enjoying glorious sunshine like we are today! I inked up this sweet Tilda with cat for the first time and coloured with my copics. She's a real sweetie and I love it more than I thought I would!!

I pulled out these papers which have been sitting unused for way too long. It's not my normal colour scheme but I like it. I've used the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious this week. With the paper full of flowers & leaves and adhering my own flower/leaf embellishment I will also enter this card into the Quixotic Challenge this week which is 'Leave it Out' - to use leaves on your card. Instead of adding a sentiment I decided to link up this charm instead which says 'love'. The ribbon is SU! chocolate chip taffeta (so lush)!! Pearls are from my stash. I also used the MS Topiary border punch for the two panels behind Tilda.

I'm not sure if I'll get back into my craft room today. I have my #2 son, Joel, home sick with a tummy bug. He started throwing up at 2.15am this morning and completely missed the bowl beside him, LOL! So, lots of laundry needs to get done as well as nursing and pampering my sick buddy. Yesterday it was my eldest son - they seem to be taking turns. Let's hope it stops at this one!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments - they're very much appreciated! Enjoy the rest of your day whatever you're doing and be sure to stay safe!
