My green creation.

Hi everyone, hope you all had a fab weekend, be it celebrating St. Patrick's Day or enjoying Mother's Day with your family. I went to a craft fair on Sunday and bought some goodies then went for a meal with the family. I had a fab day. Even my crown falling out couldn't spoil it. Then back to earth on Monday with a frantic phone call at 7am from my daughter's  hysterical  boyfriend to say my daughter had had an accident and was bleeding badly then hung up!  Finally caught up with them in A&E and thank goodness she was fine, just needed a few stitches, A wardrobe mirror had fallen off and caught her hand. It was only when my hubby called back at her boyfriend's flat to collect her things did he see why her boyfriend was so upset, it sure had bled. Gonna call him Doc Martin from now on!!!

Onto my card. I have had this lovely Tilda for some time just waiting for St. Pat's day. I enjoyed making this card as green was my mum's favourite colour  and I know she would have loved it.


main image Tilda holding shamrocks(don't know her proper title ) coloured her with copics and promarkers, then added glitter.
White cardstock
Papers used were Docrafts Boofle Design Stax and Me to You Spring Chick which I distressed and stitched.
The tag is a Magnolia die, inked around the edges and stamped with Good Luck.
Flowers and leaves are Marianne Creatables and added Leaf pins
Lace and ribbon from stash
Pearls from Hobbyhouse
Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
