London, here I come at Totally Tilda

Hello,
Can you believe it's already the 1st of December?  WOW, Christmas is coming so fast and I'm not sure I'm ready!  This fortnight at Totally Tilda, we have a wonderful challenge.  Lately, I love making different kinds of projects and our theme fits perfectly:
Tilda on anything but a card!
Bonjour,
Pouvez vous croire qu'on est déjà le premier décembre?  Noël arrive à grand pas et je ne sais pas si je suis prête!  Pour les deux prochaines semaines, nous avons un défi fantastique chez Totally Tilda.  C'est parfait pour les projets que je fais dernièrement:
Tilda sur tout sauf une carte
I made this perpetual calendar for my dear friend Sandra at The Creative Express Stops Here.  It was her birthday and I wanted something special for her that she could cherish for  a long time.  She visited England not too long ago and she had such a good vacation, I hope it will remind her of this.
I used flowers from WOC and various dies to made the wheel with the clouds.
J'ai fait ce calendrier perpétuel pour mon amie Sandra de The Creative Express Stops Here.  C'était sa fête et je voulais quelque chose de spécial dont elle pourrait profiter pour un bon bout de temps.  Elle est allée en Angleterre dernièrement et s'est bien amusée.  J'espère que ça lui rappellera ce bon moment.
J'ai pris des fleurs de WOC et plusieurs découpes pour la roue avec les nuages.

Tilda and Wiola
I think she looks like the Queen waving at her subjets!
Je trouve qu'elle ressemble à la reine qui salue ces sujets!
Vintage Phone Booth
I made the dice with clay.  I embossed the ground to make it look like cobblestone.  I've never been to England, but that's what I imagine the roads look like, lol!!!!
J'ai fait les dés avec de l'argile.  J'ai embossé le sol pour qu'il ressemble à un chemin de pierre.  Je ne suis jamais allé en Angleterre, mais dans mon imagination, c'est comme ça que les routes sont, *rire*!!!

I coloured all the images with Copics.
J'ai colorié toutes les images avec mes Copics.

You are indeed an exceptionally creative girl Brigitte, and I am so very fortunate to have been the recipient of this heartfelt gift. I do cherish it and am reminded each and every day of you.

Your colouring skills are perfection and your creative talent is to be admired.

I must have done something right in my life to have found a friend like you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xoxo Sandra :)

You are not alone Brigitte! I haven't even thought about buying Christmas gifts yet and I know I will be running around like a headless chicken soon.

This is just amazing!!!
I love your colouring and all the detail on it, it must have taken you forever to get it completed. It's a gift to be treasured.

You need to visit England so you can see if the streets do look like this...then we can all come and meet you! How fab would that be!!!

Big hugs
