Tilda with her Koala

Hello everyone this is my first post for 2012. I have been really enjoying the holidays here in Australia and we don't go back to school until February so I still have a couple of weeks left. The weather here has been beautiful and we have spent many balmy nights down at the beach. We are very lucky to live 5 minutes away by car so we still feel refreshed when we get home. Anyway I have been doing a variety of crafts my block of the month quilt is nearly done, I have started a new quilt for friends who are expecting their first baby and have been making a couple of cards. Anyway when I saw this challenge over at Totally Tilda which was to use Tilda with a non domesticated animal I knew I had to enter. I had coloured up Tilda with a koala (which I purchased from Bron at ShopBron) while my friend Alethea from Lilo Designs was over for a craft session. Yes I know koalas aren't brown but it went with the colour scheme so please forgive me. I am really pleased with how this card has turned out. The papers are from my stash and I used my Cricut to cut out the leaves. Anyway here she is

Until next time Happy Crafting
