Happy Birthday Tilda!

I'm BACK!  This was the longest I have went without blogging in months!! I had good reason though!  My hubby decided last Weds. at noon to take a few days off and drive up to North Carolina to see some snow. So Thurs morning we loaded up and headed North to the mountains. We went to Sugar Mtn in Banner Elk, NC. It's very nice and we got to go tubing and skiing and just hang out. It was my daughters first time seeing snow, she was loving it! My son skied for the first time, we have taken him before but he didn't want anything to do with skiing at the time.  So now he is all ready to go to Colorado or somewhere else out west next year. I must say, so am I!! I LOVE it out west and especially love quaint little ski towns.

So on the way back from the mountains, we took a little detour and stopped in Charleston, South Carolina, one of my favorite places. I have been trying to get my husband to go for years, he has never been, so when we were driving back we were only 45 mins away from we figured..what the heck!  We didn't spend too long but we did get to walk around the historic district and took lots of pictures. Now he wants to go back just the two of us!

While I was gone my order from Magnolia-licous came. I knew it was going to and I was hating not being here to get it!! LOL  I have been so crazy busy since getting back that I finally got to sit down last night and ink and color one up.

Sorry about the pictures...they didn't come out all that great. I took them in the evening and the colors are a bit off. Most look ok, but the flowers have a strange tone to them. They actually matched almost pefect, but do not appear to in the photo! 

I masked Birthday Tilda with the Balloon background. You can buy this in Diana's shop. She has the entire So Special Collection and they are just the cutest!!!  I colored her with copic markers. and added tons of stickles to just about everything!! lol I went stickle crazy!  The seal is from Cats Life Press.  The papers are from Echo Park. Love them! My LSS carries this line and I will be using another awesome line from Echo on Sunday!! ;-)))
