Hi all, today is the start of the new fortnightly challenge at
Our Badge / Notre badge
the theme is
Here is my DT card using Tilda with Surf Board, I coloured Tilda with markers then cut her out.  I decided to make a Shadow Box but with an additional inner acetate layer, this enabled me to create a tropical vacation scene for surfer Tilda, the Palm trees is a stamp that I received some years ago from a blogging buddy, I stamped two trees then cut them out, the papers are from the Miss Daisy Stamps WR3 paper range, I used a shaped die to cut out the aperture, the flowers are stamps and dies from Heartfelt Tropical Hibiscus range, I also used the shells stamps and die cuts, I added lace, beads in a bottle and topped the lace with some WOC roses.  I have taken many pics from different angles so you could see more of the inside.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my followers, friends and visitors for your support, kindness and encouragement that I receive on a regular basis, but due to my continued personal and health issues I have decided to step down from all my DT commitments with the exception of Magnolia Forever.
I have talked it over with my son and have agreed not to totally end my days in blogland but to see how things progress.

I seem to have lost so much of the love and joy that I have found for so many years in my craft, it has always been a big help to me over the years which is why I am not making this a final farewell.
