Tilda Nightingale

Evening Peeps,

Tomorrow's Friday and I usually look forward to the weekend but I'm not so sure this week.  I am going to my Daughter's presentation of her A Level certificates at the school tomorrow evening, and yes this is a good thing, but my 15 year old son asked if he could have a couple of mates around.  He must of caught me when I was in a good mood, obviously crafting, and I agreed.  Well what's a few friends hey, 3 or 4.  Well that's what I thought.  There are 15 of them coming round!!!!!!!  That's a party in my book!  Now he know's I'm a little OCD.  I like the housework to be all done and the house tidy at all times, can't leave the dishes, they have to be washed up, dried and all out of sight before we can sit down.  My hubby has already told me not to get freaked out when we get in, there will be mess but it will clean up.  I know they will be noisy, those that are staying, so little sleep and I don't do little sleep very well.  It will give the right hump on Saturday and being tired no crafting will be performed.  I guess as I'm expecting the worse I could end up being surprised.  Let's hope it's a good one.

Anyway, onto my card this evening.  I have coloured one of my Maggies, gorgeous isn't she and used my favourite blue.

I have coloured her using copics and shaded with my prisma pencil.

The backing paper are from the soon to be released Bearly Mine Christmas Dreams Digi Papers and the music one is from the Christmas Sparkle collection.   Here's a reminder of the Christmas Dreams papers to be released tomorrow, Friday 12th November.

OMG Tracy this is absolutely stunning,the colours, design and Tilda, wow, she looks totally amazing. I know how you feel about the boys being in the house I don't think I could cope with that many, I also like everything in it's place which is difficult with boys well at least it is with my son, he never ever cleans up after himself I have to do it all, lol, still I suppose that is what being a mum is all about, lol.

Hi Tracy - well you're brave - I did a lad's sleepover when he was 11 with about 12 kids, they all slept downstairs and I remember finding boxer shorts, socks and other things afterwards LOL. Never did it again after that and certainly not at 15 - so good luck with that one. Fantastic card, love those colours. Hope you get some sleep. Hugs, Claire x
