Finally took time to stamp again. This exercising really takes time but its worth it. I have lost 38 pounds since January and 70 since my high 6 years ago. I still have at least 28 pounds to go but would love to lose even more.

I used the Ever so Thankful stamp from It is colored with copic markers. The yellow paper is edged with gingerbread chalk ink. The edge is cut out with a fiskars border punch and then the swirls were left over from the punch so I colored those with the chalk ink and glued them to the top and bottom. The dp is from bo bunny. The yellow buttons have so glittery twine tied on them. I put stickles on the leaves and diamond glaze on the letters and acorns. Hope you enjoy.

Snowflake Tilda

I love Christmas and I love snow and I love Tilda so here is a card to go with all those loves.

Tilda is colored with pencils. Seems to be my favorite coloring medium again. Really I am just practicing to improve my coloring skills and for a class I am teaching on a yahoo group that I own. The large shapes are from nestabilities and the snowflakes are from memory box. Added  some stickles and the red nailheads in the one corner.
I would ask how you could not like Tilda but my youngest and oldest daughters don't care for her because she doesn't have a mouth but I think that just adds to her charm. There is no accounting for the tastes or your children, even the grown ones.

Tilda and Lamb

I colored her with prisma color pencils. The poinsettias have gold flower soft in the middles with a bit of gold stickles. Two of the papers are outlined with gold stickles. The lamb had liquid applique on her. Tilda is sitting in shaved ice by Stampendous (I think). The pine branches that are stamped on the edge of the green paper is done with a stamp from Red Rubber Designs. They are adding lots more stamps so check them out. Thank you for your comments. They mean so much.

Hurrying Christmas Tilda

The other day on facebook I commented that I wanted to run away from home as I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with working 7 days a week. So to go along with my feeling I chose this Tilda but hopefully she isn't running away from Christmas. 

I colored Tilda with prisma colored pencils. Haven't done that in a while. I saw a youtube video on coloring with pencils so I decided to try some of the suggestions. Needs a bit more work around the face. Practice makes perfect and I need a bit more practice. Added a few red stickles on the dress and flower. Some star dust stickles are on the shoes. The poinsettias are from hero arts. Put some lace behind the layers. Pearls and nail head stickers are in the corners. I punched some tags out and wrote Merry Christmas on them.

 The patterned paper is from Penny Black.  On the inside I think I will write something like "Couldn't wait to wish you a Merry Christmas" of "Hurrying to wish you a Merry Christmas. 
Hope you enjoyed my Christmas card. I need to make lots more.
