Can Spring be far away?

Here Tilda sits in a ray of sunshine, thinking that Spring is only a couple of days away.  Yesterday was blustery and cold, today, sunny and warm, what is it going to be?P1120124

I love this image of Tilda with Big Bow.  I used copics to color her with thoughts of spring.  Pink and Green came to mind.

I used the Beaded Oval Spellbinders and cut the center out with a basic oval die, mounted it over a larger white oval and made a little ledge for Tilda to sit on. The Doohicky Swirl is coated with Stickles, as are the flowers

I’m always reluctant to send flowers in the mail, but I have learned that if I coat them with Glossy Accents, it hardens the fibers and they don’t arrive looking like they have been beaten with a club.  This card is for a very dear friend, who has been going through a tough time lately.  The inside says -- “To Cheer You”.

I’m entering this card into the

Magnolia-licious home card challenge

Little Claire’s  pink & green

Hi Madge! So excited to find a fellow BC'er! I live in Merritt! I hear you guys are getting a new scrapbook store or maybe just recently one opened? Lucky you! I moved from Williams Lake where we had the best store and now in Merritt we have NOTHING! And Kamloops sucks too and Kelowna too far. I hear Kamloops will be opening one in August or so. YAY for me!!
Anyway, fabulous card and isn't she the cutest image? Like your choice of color combo too! Hugs!
