Pirate Tilda three years later

Good morning LLC friends and followers! 

Welcome, today I'm (Louise)  your proud host. Boy have we had loads of fun this week! As you all know by now Sandy challenged us to show you all some of our first works and then bring them to life again as we would do them now. Let me tell you, when she first wrote about it I was a wee bit scared. Since I started out in 2009 I've exchanged computers a couple of times and I'm so not the best at saving my photos. Well, obviously I save the ones with the kids ;) but otherwise not so much. I was very relieved when I saw this one with pirate Tilda. I created it in 2010 for my best friends daughter Ebba as she turned three. It my very first make using di´s as a medium and even I can see the difference between the two ;) This is the only photo Ive saved since then so lucky me! ;) 

I have been eagerly stalking my postie this week because I knew my Vintage Spring Maja Design paper pad was on its way from the Live and Love Crafts store. And I was ecstatic to receive them prior to the Easter holidays - that way I can enjoy them extra much! ;) lol! So no surprise I used dp´s from the pad. And let me tell you I utterly LOVE them! - ALL! I'm so going to use every last one :) 

Of course I used the same Magnolia image and can you see the LOVELY splashes and bits around her?? I ordered myself some Frantage embossing powder in shabby white to see what all the fuss was about and let me tell you! I'm sooooo using that again! I know Sandy has ordered some more colors too and I'm going to buy them all. Don't miss out, I have a feeling the will sell pretty fast! 

For those of you that I'm lucky enough to have as followers you all know that I always add the Picket fence di crackle paint. As I browsed the LLC shop the other day I noticed Sandy stocks it in Tattered rose too so of course I had to try it...and no surprise there either - I LOVE IT! ;) For more info about what I've added to this card check the end of my posting where I have a gallery via Inlinkz. That way its very easy for you to simply click the picture and it will take you right to the very product in the LLC store. 

Now, before I head off I want to remind you to look at the amazing creations made by my teamies throughout the week. They all create the most stunning things and I have had loads of fun looking at how their own personal styles has evolved throughout the years. Speaking of fun; tomorrow, it's April's Fool's Day, but I'm not fooling you; a brand new challenge is coming up. See you then!

Thanks for checking in with me today! 
Lots of love 


  1. Your early work is pretty, Louise. But I do love your current style, it's easy to spot your beautiful cards from the gorgeous soft and shabby look. You have got kind unique style, one can always tell it's "a Louise creation". And I love it. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  2. Gorgeous in the past and spectacular in the present, I love this Pirate Tilda and I love your colouring of her Louise. x

  3. Gorgeous remake of an already sweet card! Thanks so much for sharing part of your journey with us!
