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.

Oh isn't she darling! I love how you colored her and your design is so festive. My hubby always wants to put a mouth on them too. He put a mouth on his father's birthday card, men! LOL
Your card is beautiful.

Tilda looks darling with all those snowflakes, Peggie. I love all the pretty Christmas colors and your cheerful design.
I love Magnolias because even though they don't have a mouth you can use elements on a card to make it happy, sad, celebration, or sympathy. That alone is the beauty of Tidla and Edwin.
