If you are tagged, you must firstly post the rules:
* Write 7 strange characteristics about yourself. They interest us all!
* Tag 6 other people at the end of your Post.
* Visit everyone that you have tagged and leave a comment on their blog to let them know that they have been tagged.
So here are my seven strange characteristics:
1. I like coffee of a morning and tea of an afternoon.
2. I would much prefer a starter and a pudding when out then the main course.
3. Everytime I have won a bottle of sloegin at a friends fundraiser I have been pregnant before it has been ready to be drunk.
4. Both my sons were born premature, and both named after Kings of England.
5. I like showers of a morning, but baths at night.
6. I used to be a drummer in a seventeenth century army as a hobby before the children.
7. I was school champion at swimming, but hate it now.
My 6 people to tag are -
Lynsey, Nessy, Ria, Gisele, Jenny, and Heidi

I have been blog hopping recently, I don't often get chance with the two boys and I like seeing what other people class as their inspirational blogs, so if you get a comment of me about a card and you don't know how I found you this is how. I do like to comment on all cards on a challenge but I don't always get the time, this is why I now publish the link to mine as a clicklink as it is easier than cut and pasting etc.
Nice to see Cathy and Heidi back on line, will be leaving you messages in a bit.
Have tried to do the Tilda blue challenge, but my first card failed as the new card I have for stamping is not as purous as my previous and the colour bleed - grr so having to start again. I have brought some ClutterbeeBugs to use for faux stitching and I can't seem to get that to look very good either, may do a post of all my mistakes for the challenges this week on there!
I have also treated myself to two new tilda's, tilda in pigtails and tilda in a patchwork dress. They have changed the eyes on her as they are now bigger and darker and will get some getting used to and they also seem bigger than the old stamps.
I also have the penny black teed up on order and the the holly critters, nearly time to do all the Xmas cards, can't believe I made them last year at 7 month pregnant and Henry will be one next month!
To finalise my purchases I have 3 sugar nellies on order to which I had hoped would be here today but think they will arrive tomorrow now. So I can see me being busy colouring and stamping for a while.
So will go back to blog hopping, hope everyone is well and not too wet!

Luckily for me the challenge was extended by a week, so I am able to enter this lovely card. Tilda is sitting on her summer bench in a lovely summery dress watching the dragonflies play in the sunshine.
Papers are papermania, ribbon is stash, dragonflies are from hobbycraft. Tilda is watercoloured. Hope you like x
