All that scraps - Marvellous May moments

Hi Ladies, crafters, followers. As you can see I haven't posted in a short while and I do apologise. I haven't been too well, and the tablets that I am prescribed for the pain in my legs and back just make me want to sleep. So this past week, I have done a lot of sleeping and a lot of resting of my legs.

Last week I had a real scare I woke with cramp in my legs but not just in one place, every time i tried to stretch my leg I would get cramp somewhere else. I tried to get out of bed and landed on the floor I was screaming in agony. I couldn't reach my mobile which was on the other side of the bed I really thought I was going to have to phone an ambulance. This pain seemed to last for ages. All I know is that it shook me up for the rest of the day.

My problem being I can't sit to craft as it sets of the trapped nerve I have in my back and so I stand to craft. Resulting in my legs, feet and ankles swelling. (There are photo's although a year old on my facebook - but nothing has changed in five yrs- hence waiting for an operation- not a pretty site)

 Anyway that was last week and today is another day in which there is no swelling or pain, so with a bit of luck I will be able to post a few cards and some extra's to the candy that I have on offer.

So the first challenge set by All that scraps is Marvelous Magnolia "May" Moments

http://atsblog.typepad.com/ats/magnolia-ats-challenge/

The marvellous May moment for me is this is the first card that I have been able to post this month. So I would like to share that with you first and then secondly I will announce the winner of the candy.








Materials used:
Stamps _ Tilda - Hawaiin flower and Tulips -Walkway
From Butterfly Dreams New range of Stamps.

Papers: From my stash. The circle was punched out from wrapping paper  with butterflies in the design.

Tilda is mounted  onto a Prepunched Butterfly card
.
Sentiment: From the glitter girls web site.

I have embossed the back of Tilda's dress and the flower on her head. This makes it look likes she is popping off the page. Unfortunately It does show this clearly in the photograph, no does it show the colours of her dress. But it is ready to share.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

Happy crafting everyone. I wish you all a happy, memorable weekend.

Hugs Julie

Hi, Julie! Your card is lovely! One of my favorite characters too... cute little Tilda! Thanks so much for popping by my blog and leaving me such a sweet comment about the mini album I made for my grandson. I will email you about your comment.

Hugs,
