Tilda says it with flowers ....

Hiya!! :-)...missed me ?!..probably have been MEGA busy all week..mostly with card orders - im booked up know for the month...but i did manage to steal a little time to colour this little lady in :-)..i promise the card looks better IRL...with all the stickles on the distressed edges...wasnt sure i'd have time to post her..but Dan has taken Casey to A&E as it looks like he may have broken his finger at school - not that we knew about it til he got home - if it is broken there will be big trouble i can tell you!!!! - so here i point dragging both kids there..but i digress :-)'s my entry for two challenges... Passion For Promarkers where this week the theme is "gratitude" and also Crafty Card Makers - Distressing..ive coloured with promarkers and the papers are K& are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment was a free digi :-)..thanks for stopping by..Debs

so..Hubby's band..well i say band it's him and Scott and sometimes Alan...were invited to play the aftershow party for Wath folk we winged free tickets to watch the show..and the headline act was "the bad shepherds" - Ade's band...and they were we moved on to the aftershow gig..we saw them sat in a corner quietly eating pizza and Scott went over to ask them to sign his thing they had asked them to fetch their gear round and give them a performance..i seized my opportunity and plonked myself next to Ade..shamefull i know ..but then he kept asking me stuff..and i was so shy...i went all "i carried a watermelon" on him and just babbled..but as you can see thats me in the white top :-)...watching the lads play...i should give a shameless plug here too and mention they are called "the Barsteward Son's Of Val Doonican"..they have a web page and several song on you tube if you want to check them out!!..i highly recomend "falsh"..but steer clear of the gerbil song if you are easily offended!!! have been WARNED!!!
