Tilda's Got a Present!!



Yay, it's hump-day!! Just have to work 1-8:30pm and the week will be more than half over. And it's a long one for me too!! We will be short one person at work today as one of my coworker's had a little accident in her family. Her little guy broke his leg on the bunny hill when he went skiing!! He has a cast from his ankle up and over his knee!! He is only 6 and has a hard time hobbling around on those crutches, so they've got him a wheelchair. He is doing fine and he thinks this is cool.....for now anyway!! So it may be a busy day!

Do you wanna see a card?? Okay! I decided to make Tilda have dark hair today. I normally colour her hair using my Sand or Brick Beige Copic marker or even Buttercup Yellow, but today I went for DARK hair, like me!! The card base is a Chocolate Chip square and the patterned papers are by Scrapbook Walls. I like the contrast of the chocolate colours against the soft peachy colours. She is carrying her little present to give to someone! I used a Copic that matches Soft Sky and it is called Cool Shadow for her wings and then used the Soft Sky stitched grosgrain ribbon across the middle. I added some fancy brads that I picked up ages ago at the dollar store and then some Prima Hydrangeas and attached them with glittery brads......love those things! As usual, I finished her off with Stardust Stickles for her pretty wings!!!

So I see some of you are as excited as I am to check out the upcoming High Hopes releases!!! I will be back later today with another High Hopes Peekaboo for you!!! I also received the go-ahead today to post any samples made with them even before they are officially released!!! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeee!! So you may get to see some Peekaboos with a little more substance ..... and very soon....what do you think about that?! Guess I'd better get going so I can get something done before I head in to the library!!

Toodle-oo and have a stampin' great day!!!!



P.S. Don't forget to enter my challenge to win a Magnolia!! See the post from yesterday!!

I love the chocolate and peach colour combo. The card is brilliant and Tilda with the darker hair looks good too.

Looking forward to seeing some of your creations with the new High Hopes stamps.

I love this one, too! All these Tilda's are just so yummy.

I hope you remember that I emailed you long ago about the Stamping Idol features I am doing on my blog. I have been waiting for the top twelve to start and that results show is TODAY....so YOU are my first feature of the series. I borrowed photos of a few of your cards to encourage the few people who haven't been to your blog to hop on over! Hope that is ok?! Thanks so much for all of your inspiration.
