... I never really know - is it one and the same or are they both different?
Anyway, hello everyone and a happy Tuesday to you all. The countdown has begun - only two weeks and two days until the kiddies summer holidays and I can't wait (you can remind me of this on the fourth week into the hols when I'm pulling my hair out!!!). So we have a very busy couple of weeks coming up what with leavers assemblies and bbq's, discos, summer fairs and classroom meets where you get to go in and see all their lovely work. They always seem to cram it in last minute so I have so many dates running around my head I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going.
Okay, enough of my ramblings lets move on to my card. I thought I'd stamp up a Tilda and she's been coloured using a mixture of copics and promarkers. I thought I would do a 'shabby' card this time so I stamped her in Memento 'London fog'. I also followed the sketch over at CLP challenge but I've managed to cover up quite a lot of it with all the embellies but go check it out if you're like me and love a good sketch its certainly one of the places to head over to.

A bit of a side view up next where you can see that gorgeous daisy. The corner and frame with the sentiment I made myself out of Martha Stewart polymer clay and silicone moulds.
A closer look at Tilda and the Martha Stewart frame. I bought a kit a month or so back (I think it was the 'heirloom' kit) where I got a few silicone moulds and some clay and seriously its lovely to work with its so tactile you can't help but play. I've never used polymer clay before but I'm seriously thinking of getting a few more moulds just love it!.
