Tilda in wellies

I made this card for my friend who has moved to the UK for 4 or 5 months with her husband for his job. I used a ready made card base from a box from Michaels - I know, it's cheating but it was so cute!! I coloured her using prismas & gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) That is a technique I'm always working on - trying to improve my colouring!!! I added a bunch of flowers from K&Company that I got from Michael's. The other paper I used is So Saffron and Cameo Coral. The white I used is Wausau Bright White cardstock from Wal-Mart. I still prefer my Cougar white that my friend picked up for us - it is THE brightest and whitest I have seen yet!

ETA - "Wellies" are the British term for RUBBER BOOTS!!!!

Accordion Card

I made this card using the tutorial from SCS here. It was fun & really cute!! We are going to make this on Friday night at my workshop! I hope the ladies will stop talking long enough so I can give directions!!! LOL It has so much potential - it could be used as a card, or an album, or a journal - the options are endless!! Of course I had to use my Tilda's again! This is an image sent to me, but I MUST have this stamp too one day!!!! LOL She is so cute and springy - I love her!!! The Tilda on the inside is one I own, so I was able to crop her with my scallop heart punch.
