Playing With My New Toys

Well, I just had to do it. I invested in some very special new dies and have been having a blast creating cards with them. This Cheery Lynn die is one I couldn't resist so I decided to make a simple scene  just for fun. Tilda in Lacy Jeans seemed perfect for this so I combined her with the Screen Door (and cat) die, yes, that's real screen in the door, and you can see the pretty Squigglefly digi tree in the background. I hung a Jolee birdcage from the ceiling  because I think they're pretty cute and it seemed the right thing to do. I have a hunch the cat is eyeing that cage hungrily but with Tilda keeping watch I don't think he stands a chance. I finished it off with a sentiment meant to pay homage to my Welsh heritage - thanks to Tom Jones - and one of his hit songs from the 60's. Welshmen really love their music, that's for sure! With the weekend coming up I'm now looking forward to lots of play time with the rest of my new dies so you can be sure I'll be posting more in the near future.


I've entered this in two challenges this week.
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Inspired by a Song
MidWeek Magnolia - Their very first challenge, appropriately themed "Hello", use a greeting
