Sweet Tilda stirs things up with Sir Stampalot, Crafty Creations and Papertake Weekly for Tuesday Throw Down with my ol' mates at Stamptacular

Don't you just love Tilda!!!!    
I made a birthday card for a lovely friend of ours who is in her late 70s.   I wanted to use pink which fit nicely with the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  I coloured Tilda with Copics and Promarkers.  My papers are Annalee by Prima - there are only three in accordance with the challenge at Crafty Creations - the floral paper is gutted from the one at the back around the border and there are three shapes in keeping with the challenge at Papertake Weekly.   Sir Stampalot have a food theme which is why I chose this image.  Tilda is obviously about to mix a batch of cake mix with that big spoon but just in case the subtlety is insufficient for the challenge,  I added some food to the inside.   I always make an insert for my cards but I almost NEVER decorate the insides.  Frankly it takes me way too long to do the outsides but I did add a little pocket for a gift card and some "Cuppycakes" from Prairie Fairy and a coffee cup. 
I stupidly did not write down the make of the coffeecup stamp when I filed it.  
Finally, my old friends at Stamptacular have an anything goes theme.   Hi there!  Sorry I wasn't more creative ladies!   The sentiment on the front of my card is LOTV and the one on the inside is Penny Black.
I am entering the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot - "food, glorious food"
Papertake Weekly - "get in shape (use 3 different shapes and the card base counts as one)
Crafty Creations - "3 dps, 2 embellishments, 1 image"
Tuesday Throw Down - "think pink"
Stamptacular Sunday - "you choose"

Hi Lesley, Since we both left the DT team at SSC, I missed your beautiful cards. So I went over tonight and what I saw is so you. Gorgeous creations and very stylish cards.
Love your baby card for Mo's and the Charlie Chaplin card is so stunning. You did a great job coloring there.
I will come and see your blog more often, because I think it's about time that I become a follower. Better late than never.
Big Hugs Marianne
