Jolly Tilda

Another Christmas post! Yikes, I swear I am not wishing for Christmas already! Don't get me wrong I , LOVE Christmas, but I also stress during the holidays between shopping, cooking and family just as much as I want it to be here I want it over with!!

This little Jolly Tilda w/presents was my first Tilda that I bought. I think she is adorable and my card isn't too bad either hehe




I colored Tilda with Copic markers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon is CTMH. The paper is one of my favorites from My Minds Eye, Be Merry. I have been hoarding the papers for awhile now. Does anybody else do this? I buy supplies because I think they are super FAB and then hate to use them because I will use them up....uh...I think that is the point!! Well those were one of "those" papers, but I broke down and used them!!  So back to the card - the snowflake was made on my cricut...I forget which cartridge! ;-)  The brads were white and I colored them with my copic markers to get a color to match my paper.

Challenges:

Thanks for looking,

She is absolutely darling and I love the colour scheme. I especially love how you coloured the present she is carrying, it just pops and draws your eye in to the image. Excellent!!
