Tilda and Bloom

Here's another card made with that fence from the Bloom lite cartridge. This time, I used it as a perch for Tilda, who was coloured with copics then cut out. The fence was cut at 3" and shadowed in taupe. Papers are by My Minds Eye.

I cheated and gave her a nose! some of the Tilda images are just too much for me with no nose or mouth. I heard that the concept is that they are all angels, and angels speak with their hearts not their mouths. Seems a bit far fetched to me, but there you go, mine has at least got a nose.
I am so busy here, trying to pack a quart into a pint pot............one suitcase has already made the journey up to the supermarket to be weighed, luckily it came in at a few pounds under - I soon fixed that by stuffing more craft stuff down the sides of the case
I was doing a last minute shop, one place I was in was quite quiet, and I had a little chat to the checkout person. She was asking about my accent/where I lived/how long I was here for..........the usual questions. I said I would be back in the UK on the 1st July. 'oh good' she said brightly 'you'll be back for the 4th then'. Well, yes, but we won't be celebrating a whole lot over there!

Your Tilda is just darling!! I love that you gave her a nose!! I think sometimes we open mouth, words come out and don't even pass through our brains!! :)

Another great card, Enfys. Have you really been over here for your usual 3 months???? Can't believe we're going to lose you back to England. Thank heaven for the internet ~ we won't be deprived! Safe flight and hurry back.

Love this little Tilda, En! Thanks for the inspiration on the Bloom cart. I have it but not opened it yet. Now that I've seen how cut it can be, I'll open and start to play.

I don't envy you the packing and sorting but I know you'll be glad to get back home and see the family. We will miss your coffee shop visits and the local lunatics that manage to find you. Your posts always bring a smile. hugs, eileen

Such a cute card! I love the concept about the noses and mouths, however, I think Tilda's nose is just the cutest little nose and makes her look just too sweet!

Jessica said...

Lovely card, and I agree with the face business. I think I'm going to get some face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps to give Tilde the missing face parts. Is that against a rule somewhere?
Shopping for more stuff???? Oh I guess you are taking some goodies back to friends in the UK. I'll bet you've learned how to pack a bag perfectly! I would never have thought to take a bag to the grocery store to have it weighed! Very good idea!
Travel with care. Hugs, Jess

Many people here never leave the USA. That was so funny. I guess we haven't done a very good job teaching US History. Too funny.
Love the card. My husband says the same thing about the Tilda images. I think that is us cute you adding the nose. I am trying to decide what Cricut Lite I want to get next. I think I would use bloom. I love the fence.

Hi Enfys, yes my hubby doesnt like the magnolia stamps as they dont have any mouths or noses, he says they dont look right.
Fabulous card and very cleverly created with that gate. Take care with love and hugs Shirleyxxx

I just don't understand how you manage to find ALL the lunatics and crazies... and the scary part... on a REGULAR basis... Here's hoping your days back home can be just as interesting! (for you AND for us) (-:

Love your card. I will miss your posts while you are in moving transition.

pcrusberg said...

Really cute card! I agree with you on the Tilda's though. Wasn't there a Twilight Zone or something where everyone was without a mouth. So funny about the clerk in the store. I hope you have some folks like that back in the U.K. so that you can keep us entertained! Good luck with the packing. Pam

BugJunkie said...

Just Adorable and I agree, she needs a nose. ;)Love your card!!

mahuntington said...

Love the fence and your addition to Tilda. I don't like them without mouths and noses. I can't believe it's been 3 months already. Happy travels, be safe.

Kelly said...

What a great card Enfys! I love that fence and that paper matches the flowers perfectly. Love the nose you put on Tilda...so CUTE!

Sandy Bayles said...

I love Tilda and the nose is so cute. Thanks for another great card and cute story.

Marisa said...

Love the card, great fence, perfect for Tilda. I agree with you about their faces - I always draw a smile on their face after I finish colouring them in!

Kayla said...

i love the card and the background u did an amaizing job!!!!

kisatrtle said...

your card is awesome and she looks much better with a nose. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for all the stupid comments you have recieved while visiting the states.

freetimegone said...

I love Tilda and adding the nose is too cute. I do like the thought that they don't speak with their mouths, only their hearts. Imagine some of the words that might not have been spoken. I love that fence too and am thinking I need that cart just for the fence. Oh no!

My Creative Time said...

OMG!! This card is just TOO PRECIOUS! I LOVE everything about it! You are making me WANT that new cartridge!! lol...
Big Hugs,
