At long last I have dusted off a Tilda stamp.. well not literally wouldn't dream of
letting my Tilda stash get dusty..the thought of it makes me cringe..lol

case of Chickenpox..spots everywhere & I mean everywhere..poor wee girlie 
is in so much pain with an ear infection too..am sure all you mums/nanas 
are the same you just want to take the pain away for them..
I thought this sweet Tilda sat on the moon with a stars back drop may chear her up.
Mia loves twinkle twinkle so plenty of sparkle with the Stampendous Frantage  .
Image is coloured with Prisma pencils framed with circle dies.
Creative Expressions Twinkle die, ribbon & Roses from stash, sentiment
