Tilda Sitting Pretty for Just Magnolia & SOS

Wow, it's been a while since I entered a challenge for fun. The small matter of something called Xmas kind of got in the way! But hey, thought I'd enter a couple of my faves. The layout follows this weeks sketch at Just Magnolia, & A Spoonfull of Sugar wants to see cards with hearts on. The hearts aren't immediately obvious, but the charm is heart-shaped as are some of the flat backed pearls I used amongst the leaves.

I have several people to thank who have contributed most kindly & generously to the making of this card. My dear friend Michele sent me the cute image of Tilda from the Yummy Tummy collection. I've also used gorgeous glittered MME Laundry Line DPs that my wonderful Buddy Dena sent me. She also sent me the little heart charm. The lovely larger, coffee coloured flowers are from Bec & are available at her fab Bizzy Becs store. Have you checked out the beautiful images & papers she has available at her online digi store?

Before I go, I thought I'd show you what me & the boys have been up to today. We've had about 6 inches of snow here & Jack's school was closed. What else is there to do under the circumstances but build a snowman. Jack wouldn't come back out & pose with him, but here is Ben, looking a little dwarfed by him, but very proud!

Here's another, just because Ben looks so cute, LOL! (Don't worry, when we were building him, Ben did have a scarf & gloves on!)

Apologies for the length of the post. Thanks for sticking with me! Hope everyone is safe & warm, whatever they are doing.
Big Hugs to you All
Andie xx

I instantly loved your card with the beautiful hearts and flowers and cute Tilda but after I finished reading about your snowman and boys, I forgot what your card looked like!!
Your son is so handsome and what a great job you all did on the snowman.
