Tiger Lily!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are fine and well, keeping warm if your weather has turned chilly, ours has, and had a good day.

All day I've thought it was Monday... loosing the plot I think. The days are going so fast I can't keep up.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my CCC cards, hope you got to see what my teammates created too.

I'm keeping this a short post tonight as I want to go and get a pan of soup on the go for tomorrow, I lead an exciting life!! So my card tonight ;
I was lucky enough to win a fabulous candy prize from Linda Simpson and it contained two Tonic dies, this is one of them Tiger lily Die.
I had no idea how to use it as there was so many pieces to it, and had to search for a You Tube tutorial to help, thankfully I found one.  This has another cutout which is very open which I will used at some point and I had coloured it all with Pixie Powders from CE, I used the flowers to ad to the solid shape and added dazzlers to them,  edged with DI, sequins and a dragonfly gem. 

Hope to get some time later to visit your blogs, but for now that's me, take care of yourselves,

This is beautiful Kate, such an elegant die cut and pretty colours.
Homemade soup sounds lovely, just the thing now that the weather has turned cold again.

Hi Kate
Not got any Tonic dies but this does look pretty. Love your Pixie background too.
Is it a bit of lentil you have brewing for tomorrow?
Best wishes.

I have lost the plot with you then. When I read the part about you thinking it was minding I had an odd feeling - because I have been exactly the same today! Anyway, whatever day it is your card is lovely. Love the colour. Hugs Christine xx

Your pixie powder flowers look so very pretty, and the inking around the edges really sets is off lovely.
