Late Summer Fun at Tilda's Town

Hi there Everyone!!!

Well what a week I've had, a few toooo many drama's happening at the new house but we have managed to sort most of them out - thank goodness talk about massive headaches!!!  Not long to go now before we move in - just a couple of weeks !!!! OMGOSH so exicited!!

This week at Tilda's Town the Theme is Late Summer Fun.... I love summer and I can;t wait for it to arrive, lucky winter is almost over for us here in Tassie - the past couple of weeks has been freezing with lots of snow in the high country!!

I've used Hooked Tilda and the Rescue Tower for my card.... my image had a little bit of a disaster strike by the hands of darling Ruby... omg so crapped off.... you can scroll down below to see the hole she put in the back ground... but after a few suggestions from my friends on Facebook - I took Lovely Jane's advise and this is the outcome.... hope you love it as much as me LOL 

So this is what she did.... I had it all ready to stick onto my card when she has run off with - while I was on the phone and stabbed it with the scissors.... I guess she was forcing me to be a little more creative today!!! I had a few cool suggestions on Facebook on how to fix it, one was to stick a fish on over the top of the hole.... that was a good one and one I had thought of myself!!! ButJane suggested that I cut her out, stamp Tilda again on another peice of paper and then place my cutout on over the top so that I would still have the fishing line and without a hole... so that's what I did.... I guess it's like a 1 layer Paper Tole hahahahahahah Thanks Jane for saving the day!! And the fish charm does look pretty cool too!!! Thanks girls:-)

So there is my card for this week.... Hope you will come along and play with us - we love seeing all your gorgeous creations which inspire us all so much!!!
