Tilda with balloon

Hello fellow crafters!

It's been a little while since I posted but at long last I have made another card.
I love how the gals put doilies on their cards. I didn't have a doily so have used a spellbinders frame instead. My Tilda is colored with distress inks. The little flower I made.
 The first time I have tried doing this background technique. Taught by Angie Hunt on her distress ink classes.
 This is the inside of the card. I made this one for my DH Doug. He loves Tilda and doesn't mind saying so. I am so blessed with the husband I have.

Shaz in Oz. said...

Thanks so much Maz for message on my blog and for becoming a follower , it is appreciated! :)

I really was taken by the name of your blog as know exactly what you mean buy it.. and praise Him for His grace.. "surely He giveth more grace" is one of my favourite verses... grace for the moment of the day.. love it..sand praise Him for it.. thanks too for lovely words on my calligraphy - to be honest I love making cards more cos they are far less draining but I know the LORD wants me to use this gift so kind of enforce the use of it..it is much more demanding than creating a card. Am thankful though I can still do it in spite of my arthritic hands as one day I guess I wont be able to do so..
Gods blessings on your day,
Shaz also in oz.x
