Farewell Totally Tilda

No, not the title of our new challenge at Totally Tilda but an actual farewell from me to the Totally Tilda Design Team!
Yesterday I made the decision to step down from the DT which I had thought was quite a momentous decision for me.  As it turns out, it was made so much easier in so many ways.
There comes a time in our lives when we stand back and evaluate what we do, and how that fits in (or not) with the way our lives are going at that time.
Yesterday was one of those times for me!
Suffice to say - times change and it is time for me to do the new things I want to do.
I have had a ball on the Totally Tilda DT and have had the good fortune to work alongside some of THE most talented designers I have ever come across.
Girls, I wish you well in your future on the Totally Tilda DT.  I will still be around to stalk  follow you in blogland and I hope that you will stick with me too.
Well the new challenge is:
(There are some rules with this challenge so please stop by the Totally Tilda challenge blog and have a good read - after all it would be a shame for you to put in lots of hard work on your gorgeous creations and then find out that it doesn't fit the challenge rules)
We are sponsored for this challenge by Sir Stampalot

The Fantastic Prize is these 2 Magnolia stamps. 
Tilda Sparkles
Shiny Tilda with candles

So here is the card I made for the new challenge:
I have used Cherry Tilda which you can get at Sir Stampalot .  She is coloured with my copics and I have sat her on a log which is again a Magnolia stamp which you can get at Sir Stampalot.
The backing paper is from Stamping All Day where you will find a fabulous array of gorgeous goodies.
The red ribbon across the top, the sentiment ribbon and that gorgeous cherry ribbon is of course from Crafty Ribbons.
The tree and the fence die cuts were from my fabulous friend Liz (thanks sweetie)
The little cherry charm was from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
I am entering this into the challenge at MDUC where the challenge is "Inspired by a Song" and my song inspiration was "Cherry Cherry" by Neil Diamond
