Summer flower Tilda

It's a very wet cold day here on the Sunshine Coast. Great weather for crafting.
I have been busy making 80 wedding invitations and have finally finished them. Just have to make hundreds of table name tags now. Good fun.

My DH Doug will soon be having his operation on his lung so I have been busy taking him to the hospital to see the specialist and today he has an extensive breathing test. It should only be about a couple of weeks now before he goes to Brisbane Prince Charles hospital. He is on the urgent list so the sooner the better.

Today I have made a card using Summer flower Tilda  from the Summer memories collection.
I also used the wild strawberry and flower DooHickey and the Swirl Butterfly Doohickey with a little sparkle on it.
The papers are from Marjolaine paper pad Basic Grey.
 I colored Tilda with my Promarkers and Shinhan twin brush markers.

Gorgeous card! I love the soft shades of yellow you used and your design is great. I will keep you both in my prayers. Take care!

She is beautiful! Love the distress inks. I have not tried them yet. Do you use reinkers or the ink pads themselves?

I hope your dh is able to get his surgery soon. By the way, I am a survivor as well!
