Tilda's Birthday Wishes & Candy Time!

****** For My Candy Please Scroll Down! ******

Hello All and Happy TGIF! Today my post is a bit longer so please bear with me. I have different things I want to share with you all and one of them is a CANDY I have up for grabs! At the end of this posting you'll find the candy and how to participate. :-) I wanted to do this for quite some time and now finally I came a round and did it!

I also have a video to show. I was asked several times already from fellow stampers and followers of my blog if I could do coloring video's. Honestly I'm not so much of a video type and there are already hundred of Copic coloring video's out there. No need need to throw another one in there....I thought! But you kept asking and well what shall I say I gave in. It is really nothing special and there are way better learning video's out there but here it is my first coloring video! So please be easy on me I never did a coloring video before. This first video shows how I colored the skin of this little Love Cake Tilda. Over time I will make more videos on how I color hair, cloth, etc. I just need to practice a little more on how I can make these video's better. 


 Here is the card made with the cute 'Tilda with Love Cake':

I opted for bright pink and turquoise papers and used dark brown as a little contrast.

Closer look on Tilda

As most of the time the inside is decorated to match the outside of the card.

My artsy shot ;-)

This time I made the card box in matching bright pink.
This card has been sold, thanks so much!!!
