Best Wishes

Finally i can show you my second Hula Tilda... This card was made already on Saturday.. i just had the hardest time to take a picture of this card. I dont know.. iam quite unhappy with the light recently.
This is also a card for Rhasberry Ribbons. I did NOT use two ribbons because i just wanted to show off this gorgeous pattern of this ribbon string. You will recieve the oval button in the kit. The one i used to attach my sentiment - take a look at the second pic. The leaf of the DP (left side) is kind off glossy and has some glitter to it. This inspired me to layer over my entire green paper this big plastic leaf and add stickles to the edges to make it stand out a bit more against the green background. This leaf is cut out with a die, i can use for fee at my local Scrapbook store. You just buy the plastic sheets and you can use all the dies they have there. It looks kind of like a hudge Wizzard machine.
Stampin up: Cocolate Chip CS, DCWV Designer Paper, Stampin up: Whisper White CS, Tempting Turquoise
Ribbon and Button: Rasberry Ribbons July Kit, Bads: Making Memories, Prima Marketing Flowers and hemp string, Stickles Glue on wings, leaf and scallops, “Acucut” plastic leaf die, Stampin up: Pretties Kit “Pearls”
Tools: Sewing machine, Nestabilities oval large, Nestabilities ribbon slider die
Coloring: Copics,
Stamp: Magnolia “Hawaii Tilda”, SS 08, Sentiment: Stampin up Short and Sweet 109369
I also would like to show you something what my husband made for me while i was sick. I really thought i have kidney stones :-( he used the base of an broken spice rack as base so i can turn the ribbon holder. I love it :-) See that empty space in the middle ... i guess i can not buy more ribbon spools :-(
