Tilda in Blue

 Tilda is probably my most favourite stamp and blue is my favourite colour so when I saw the challenge over at Die Cut Dreams - Tilda in Blue, I had to enter.  I dug out some old SU DP that my friend Amanda gave me a while ago and teamed it with that lovely blue ribbon from Craft Brulee.  The white added to the freshness of the card I think.
 I stitched around the four square panels, two with zig-zag stitch and two with double rows of normal stitching.  I coloured her with Copic markers, added a white doily, charm, flowers and sparkly gems at the bottom.
I went to an Antique fair with my Mum today and then we went and had afternoon tea...you would not believe how hard it is in Tamworth to get a cafe open at 4pm that sells decent food and make a nice hot chocolate...something I have been struggling with since I have moved back.  The other thing I really miss from The Gold Coast is the Chinese massage shops in the shopping centres where you dont have to book an appointment, but can just rock up and get a massage straight away.  My back, neck and shoulders are giving me a hard time at the moment, and oh how I would love to just walk in and get a massage.  Here I need to ring up and make an appointment and wait until there is a vacancy.  Mum says thats the thing with my generation we want everything immediately.  I agree...but not all things, I love to look forward to a package coming in the mail, or an online order that I know will be making its way to me...but when I need a good hot chocolate or a massage - yes! I want it asap!!

Hope you have a great weekend : )
