Pretty Princess Tilda

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all doing great :)

If you have been following my blog & you are a regular visitor you would know that for the last few months I have been selling some of my designs on Ebay.  I have found that Ebay is charging too much & opened my own shop at Etsy.  Also, that way I will have more control over how much the designs are sold for.
Anyway, more of that later as I have a question for you all :)

I have a new design to share with you.
This one is using Princess Tilda & also my carriage design :)
I hope you like it.

I used the following sketch from Midnight Madness
(challenge details below).

As mentioned before, I have opened my new Etsy store.
I still need to do alot of final touches.
 With each new design that I decide to put up for sale, I will show you the design here first & then ask you what price you would recommend I put on the price tag :)  It doesn't mean that you want to purchase it...I would just like an estimated price that you think would be reasonable to ask my customers for :)

So, what price tag would you recommend I put on Pretty Princess Tilda?
The design measures 6.2" (H) x 8.5" (L)  (16cm x 22cm)

Princess Carriage

Good afternoon everyone,
What a beautiful day it has been.  The last week has been extremely windy here at Port Stephens, but today has been sunny all day.  We are still at the apartment & I must admit, it is very relaxing.  Its nice to be away from everyone else & to just focus on myself.

Actually this week has been wonderful for a very different reason :)  I don't know if I have mentioned it before, but I originally come from England.  I came to Australia back in 1986 with my Mother & Brother when I was just a little younger ;)  I attended all of my schooling life in England & needless to say left all my other family members & heaps of friends behind.  I was very nicely suprised when just the other day a very old friend (my first love actually lol) tracked me down & found me on Facebook :)  Wow...talk about step back in time lol.  It has been great catching up with him & learning alot about what he has been doing in the last 24 years!  Its a great feeling knowing that some of my closest friends in England still remember me after all this time :)

I have completed another design.  This one took a little longer to create than usual but I did actually make 2 copies of the design.  Each a little different from the other.  One standing by itself & the other as a card topper.  I will be taking photos of the card topper on Monday & will publish it here soon after that.  However, here is the free-standing design with Princess Tilda.  I have added a few more pictures than I would do normally but I wanted you to be able to see it from different angles.
Hope you like it.

I used Copics to colour, chalk, ribbons, beads, Wild Orchid flowers, lace, buttons, Stickles to give it some sparkle & pop dots for a 3D look. 

Of course, I have entered this one into the following challenges:

Totally Tilda #2 - No squares, rectangles or Easel cards
Creative Inspirations #40 - Recycle Element = Buttons from clothing
Cupcake Craft #103 - Lace
Wild Orchid #3 - One for the girls
City Crafter #17 - Hearts
Creative Card Crew - Cute & Girly
Stamp Something - Fairy Tale Somethings
Secret Crafters #96 - What little girls are made of

Thats it for now but don't forget to become a follower or subscribe for email updates as I'm sure you won't want to miss the next post with the new carraige card topper.  Just to mention that both of these designs will be added to Ebay for bidding during the week.  Many thanks to all of you who are winning my designs on Ebay.

Have a great week everyone.
