I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful and filled with love! I had a quiet day! I started a card, visited w/ a friend, chatted on the phone with my DFIL and DS, and laughed a lot. All is good!
It is so windy here today. As I sit at my scrap table, I watch the hummingbird feeder blowing in the wind! Some gusts have been over 50 mph! My hummers are back. Yesterday, though, we had two interlopers at the feeder drinking the nectar. They were about the size of a parakeet but much slimmer. They were a gorgeous green with red heads. They scared the hummingbirds away. Today, though, the hummers have had the nectar all to themselves. They are just soooo cute when they stop dead in the air and stay positioned before swooping in or out. Bless their little hearts.
I finished a card yesterday. I thought I'd share it with you. I made a "grown up" card, LOL. Tilda is dressed to the nines, and I'm sure she's wearing Christian Louboutin pumps even though you cannot see his signature red soles on Tilda's shoes. I know they are there because I did the coloring, LOL! I hope you like her (and the card). Here it is:
The base of the card is a pale blue. I coupled that with the palest pink and burgundy. The patterned paper has foil inserts which make it just so pretty. I paper pieced Tilda's chair, added a spray of flowers. The greeting has been elevated on pop dots. The insert behind Tilda has been dry embossed. Note the pearls going around the shape. Here she is:
The first interior panel is just companion paper with machine stitching. I did repeat the pearls around the die cut. (My stitching lines are straight and that's a good thing, right? LOL)
The second interior panel features that gorgeous paper with the foil inlays (also on front of card). Because the paper is so stunning, I wanted to keep this simple. Maybe I should have added more flowers. What do you think? I could place them in the lower left corner.
This is what the interior looks like:
I just love the colors on this paper! They are so rich.
I have three brand new Tilda stamps for sale, if you are interested. I bought duplicates - again... If you are interested in them let me know. I have Tilda holding the little lamb, Tilda w/ an eyepatch and the barrell w/ the anchor resting against it. Both are from Pirate theme grouping. I haven't even opened their packaging. I think I have a duplicate of the flying angel Tilda, too.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I love that you took the time to visit. I so appreciate your visits.
Love to you,
