A Nice Spring card - More Tilda!! (and a bit of ebay help needed) EDITED POST

 Hello everyone, cant believe another week has gone. Time really does get the better of me sometimes. But I here again with yet another Tilda card. Think I've got a bit of a thing for her right now as all I've done in my spare time is colour her up.
So spring is looming and I love looking at the daff s sprouting up in the field. So I have gone with spring colours and made a Birthday Card. I can honestly say I have never used these colours before so colouring the stamp was alotta fun!
Another make it up as I go along. Best way for me. Cheesecloth (as ever), pretty Spring Border Die, Cloud Die, Punches, Jute Ribbon, Stickles and Gems to make this pretty Spring Card.

Now I've taken 2 piccies. One with a dark background and one more in the light. Couldn't decide what looked best so posted both.
And below is a close up of whats on the card. Dont usually do photo heavy posts but this is so pretty IRL.

 Heres some challenges;

Little Darlings - Colours of Spring
Deep Ocean - Butterflies
2 Sisters - Spring Colours
Papertake Weekly - One for the Girls or Mum
Crafty Sentiments - Things with Wings
Whoopsie Daisy - Punch it Out
Paper Sundaes - Feminine Flair
Pan Pastel - Girly/Mothers Day
CupCake Craftroom - Spring Bouquet

Aud Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Fashionable Stamping - BIngo (words,distressing,flowers)

Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes
Crafty Bloggers Network - Floral

Sold lots of stash on ebay. Adding everyday. I've got more than I will ever use and at least another 30/40 stamps to go on. Usually update in the evenings if your interested.

Thats it from me today, chores have been neglected so will have a made rush about 1hr before hubby gets home. Done the basics but I want to browse and see what you've all been up to.


I have recieved this award from 4 lovely bloggers. How lucky am I to think so many of my blogging buddies think I'm so worthy
Thanks to the lovely Frea, Kate, Clare & Judy.

I promise to follow the rules and post this on my blog soon.

Need some help with ebay. I see lots of peeps add piccies to there description.
Been faffing around of an hr now and still cant fathom it out. Got my photobucket up and running again, can see I need the html code under picture but lost from there. can anyone help me.
Email if you prefer  - clairebsd(at)aol.com
Thanks alot
