Tilda's Caught more than just a fish....

She's totally captured my heart again :) and how sweet is the new kit! I'll be back later (I hope) with something inked from the kit. School holidays have been pretty busy around here.. we travelled 9 hours to stay with my sister and her family for the wkd... and have visited and been visited by other family. I like to make the holidays busy so the kids don't get too bored. And truthfully, I have never played the Wii so much in my life!
Our weather had been less than desirable and the Wii has been my saviour over the last 2 weeks. Nearly back to school time.

I have two cards to share today...
The first is for my niece. She loves fishing and has a little pink rod just like Tilda :)

I used my Copics again, and am once again happy with the result. It sure does take a bit of ink to blend though... am really needing to get some more colours!
I used my DIY rub on method to do the sentiment... it really is very easy. When I have time I may re-do the tutorial and share it once again, I have a new printer so it took me a while to figure out how to do it again!!
I'm entering this card into these challenges:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Hawaiian/Vacation (I've got my little Tilda going camping and fishing)

The 2nd card is a 'thankyou' for a friend who loaned us some baby goods when we had Miley. I'm entering this card into Basic Grey's - Fun in the Sun challenge.  I like that I can make brighter coloured cards than what I could with my chalks when using the markers.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog

Loz, two wonderful cards. Your colouring is terrific. I especially love the brightness of the second card and the little ants going down the side.
