A die cut Tilda from Jude

Hi , first I must say thanks to Jude over at crafts international, she very kindly sent me some fab images and this one was on a die cut which meant I could join in with the challenge over at Magnolia stamp lovers who have a challenge to use a die cut. I do have a big shot but so far the only dies I have are 2 small alphabets for doing scrapbook titles,so this arrived just at the right time, so thanks again so much.

Creative card crew have a going dotty challenge this time and my dotty paper must count for that. I am so trying to use colours from my nornm hence the pink and scraps from my scraps folder so this is really not my comfort zone , so hope I've done ok.

Just magnolia have a challenge this time to make an easel card and this card design is really growing on me though I still have problems working out where to position the stopper to form the easel, i seem to put it somewhere different every time.

The layout is from Totally papercrafts #8, and I love this sketch thanks Joanne, I think it could become a favourite for my little book of inspiration if thats ok, I thought it would be hard to do but I really love the results.

Finally and I'm not sure how far their boundary rules can be pushed but over at CRAFT they have a challenge to use a nursery rhyme as inspiration. Well to me my card reminds me of 2 of my sons favourites pat-a-cake pat -a-cake and hey diddle diddle , he use to giggle at the dish and spoon running away, probably as the actions mean you run your fingers up the childs arm and tickle. Hope it's not too far an imagination stretch, his other favourite was puff the magic dragon song, for some reason he would fall about laughing at it, but loved it so much he had a dragon birthday cake for his 3rd birthday for playgroup.
