Tilda with lolipop and love muffin

Well learning my way takes a bit of getting used to...... I just want to say a huge thank you to Mandy for helping me upload her blog candy picture and adding the link, I'll get there in the end.....

A couple of cards made recently. The first is Tilda with lolipop sitting in the window, isn't she cute.......

Below I have posted a birthday card I made for my friend. This is Tilda sitting on the love muffin but I have applied liquid applique and heated to make it look like icing.
