Bubbling Tilda - Enjoy

My new blog design!

Hi everybody!

How is everyone doing today? The weather is sunny and warm here in Brittany. The whole week should be like this! What a perfect beginning of summer!

It’s been quite a few days since my last post. I’ve spent last few days trying to create my blog background and header using a digital scrapbooking kit and some of my Maggies. Hope you like it!

This is not the final version as there are just a few more things to adjust but most of the work is done. To be honest, it was very difficult as I’m not an expert in blog design :-). Luckily, I live with the most incredible man who helped me create something original! So before I show you my new card, I’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Aurélien! Thank you for you patience, advice and help! You rock!

Now to my card....I tried to create a card for a friend whose fav colors are turquoise blue & lilac. To be honest, I do not like very much how the card turned out……Hope my friend likes it…..and I hope you like it too :-)

Love your new blog layout and Bubbling Tilda is great. The bubble gems on the bubble background is very cute and I just might swipe that idea for my Swimming Tilda card. Very clever! TFS

Bonjour Silvie, j'aime beaucoup ta nouvelle bannière, tes petites Magnolias sont fort jolies! C'est accueillant. Quant à ta carte, elle est magnifique. Ce n'est pas une combinaison de couleurs banale, et je crois que tu as su très bien les mixer. J'adore le coin avec la dentelle ainsi que le tag sous la petite Tilda. Mais tout est vraiment parfait. Et oui, j'aimerais bien un après-midi de scrap avec toi, même si cet espace que je réserve à ma passion est la demie de mon salon!!!

What a pretty card. I too, love turquoise, blue and lavender. They remind me of the sea, and my favorite place is by the ocean. You do beautiful work and I thank you for sharing it with us.
