shattered...

Good morning everyone are you all having a wonderful weekend?...I'm back, we got back late last night and I am totally shattered...we all had a fantastic night out, although I wasn't feeling too well so wasn't as able to dance and sing as much as I would have loved too, but everyone else made up for me lol...when we arrived at my little Sisters house she was so excited to see us and then when her Husband told her we were all going out she got even more excited...a bus arrived all decked out in 40th Birthday banners and we set of for the venue, it was a cabaret club with dinner, dancing, a show and one of the funniest drag acts I have ever seen...fantastic night and we didn't get to bed until after 2am then up at 7.30...so you can imagine how tired everyone was, we all just lazed about watching our amazing performance at the Olympics and sitting in the garden, the weather was beautiful, sunny and really warm...Phil arrived in the afternoon and we then all headed out later to dinner at a beautiful old house converted into a restaurant...so a super fantastic time but I so miss my Sisters when I'm not with them I wish I lived closer to them and we could see each other every day...right now onto my card for today which is using a beautiful Tilda from the Summer Memories collection, don't you think this Magnolia Summer Memories - Waterlily Tilda is the perfect image for summer...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these amazing papers from the Graphic 45 8x8 Paper Pad - Little Darlings pad, this one is out of stock atm but there's some new Graphic 45 paper pads I have my eye on for my next purchase...I finished with some coffee coloured ribbon and I stamped a sentiment on some of it too and added a Prima Flowers Charlotte - Snow flower...everything I used except the ribbon and pearls is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts... the fab sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge, Totally Tilda challenge and the Ribbon Girl August Challenge, I had a couple of other challenges in mind for it to but my poor tired brain wont work hard enough to remember them lol...its going to have to be a lazy Sunday today, maybe a little trip for food but that's about it as I need some serious rest and relaxation for the next week of packing I think...whatever your up to today have a fantastically sunny one

I can see why these papers are out of stock. They are too sweet. Perfect for your sweet little Tilda and her gorgeous satin ribbon.

So glad you had a great time with your sisters I can just see you guys on that bus all decked out with banners and crazy giggling women.

how cute is that. I've never been able to color a magnolia image. I've never been able to buy one. (yet) But I think she is so cute. I love all the different syles and occasions they have for her. maybe i will get to color her someday. I'll use your coloring for some inspiration. You color great. This magnolia card is adorable thanks for sharing this with us all.
