Magnolia Korean Tilda Any Occasion Card

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Sunday to each of you! We had snow over the weekend and it was so wonderful - don't start!!! Yes, many of you are being buried in snow and absolutely HATE IT, LOL, but here in the desert, it isn't an every year occurrence, and we need the water! I got up very early the morning after it had snowed. The cars were driving down the road and it sounded like they were driving on rocks due to the ice.

Christmas was horrible. I won't go into it, but suffice it to say that it was the worst Christmas of my adult life. Hubby and I were upset all day. I hope your holiday was better - it HAD TO BE since ours couldn't have gotten much worse!

Now, this week is filled with meeting repairmen. My stovetop isn't working, so I can only cook on high using only the large burner size on all five burners. Someone dented one of our three garage doors. How? Who knows. There's a dent and a buckle we didn't have before. Our garages are in the back of the house, so whomever did it had to be in our driveway! I discovered that there are mice wintering in the garage, and before I have them "neutralized" I need to replace the weather stripping on the three garage doors so that they don't return. My laptop isn't working. I dripped tangerine juice into an edge of the touchpad so now the touchpad sticks and won't go up and down. I'm holding my breath as I write this. I've stayed off the computer as much as possible so that it lasts until I can get it repaired. When did being an adult become such a pain in the arse? LOL

I took some time for myself this weekend and made a card. I used Korean Tilda as she was my favorite from the Stamp and Cutz Collection. I used Basic Gray papers, tons of various dies, lots of pearls, and glitter, of course! LOL Tilda's dress was colored using Bundled Sage DI.The green doesn't really show well. The card shape is from a retired Grand Spellbinders set. The doily was made using a Cheery Lynn die. Inside I used a La La Land die for the bridge, Memory Box plant dies, another Spellbinders die on the front just behind the image mat, and DooHickey dies. Here is the front:

I finished the inside panels as well. I always do my interiors because since I have the stuff already all over my craft table, I might as well finish the card then! LOL.

Hi Chris, I'm so sorry your Christmas wasn't a very good one this year. Sounds like you could use a big hug & couple good repairmen to get things working like they are supposed to. I've come close a few times but luckily haven't spilled anything on my devices YET !!!
On a better note, your sweet Tilda card is just wonderful... You have such a knack for coloring & decorating them & I love all those beautiful layers ... Hope you have a MUCH better rest of the year.
Sending a cyber hug, Janie
