Dangling Tilda !!

I had a big surprise yesterday when the Summer kit from Magnolia dropped through my letterbox. I was surprised because yet again I left it until the last minute and ordered it with minutes to spare of the closing date ! The last time I did this I had to wait for ages for mine to arrive and it seemed that everyone else in the World had theirs but me !

You will be pleased to hear that you can now pre-order the new Bon Voyage Magnolia Collection from Simon Says Stamp !

Anyway, I had time to have a play this afternoon and so followed Bev's great sketch on Just Magnolia.

After a little blog hopping I am also going to enter these challenges :
Cutie Sunday - Sun, Beach and Ocean
Daring Cardmakers - We are sailing
Sir Stampalot - Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

The DP's are from Designs by Krista and are called "Classic"

Tilda has been coloured with ProMarkers

The sentiment is from a set by Woodware

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm sorry about the dark photo, its blown over all Novembery, so dark and throwing it down with rain. As long as its fine by the time I go on my camping holiday, I don't mind what it does between now and then !!!

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, as always, they mean so much.

Take care and hope to see you again soon.
