Grape Tilda

I have been missing in action as I am going through my house trying to get it ready to sell and to move or move and then sell or something like that. It is so much work as I have been here for 20 years. Besides my four kids, a husband, my mother and mother-in-law have lived with us so there is much to clean out and there is only me. Someone want to help? Help! LOL My kids have helped some but they aren't here all the time. (thought I had better give create where it is due.)
Anyways I took time to create this evening.
I made Tilda with grapes. I think she is supposed to be holding a basket of cherries or maybe blueberries but I had that bunch of grapes sitting on my table and the stamp and thought why not grapes. The grapes were part of a set of pins to wear on clothes but I haven't used it so I took it for a card. Recycle - Upcycle - Reuse. Tilda is colored with copics. My youngest has hair just about this color. The die behind Tilda is from Sizzix. I took one of the smaller ones and cut two turning them on their sides and tried to make it look like one. :) Did a little bit of stitching around the edges. Added some flowers and the bunch of grapes. I tried to use scraps as I have so many and I don't want to move or pack anymore than I have to. Hope you enjoy. Maybe in a month or so I can get back to regular crafting. I know I have one card I have to do for September 4th. A birthday blog hop so hope you can come back then.
