Skiing in the morning Tilda

Did you enter into my Blog Candy yet? If not, hurry!! I will draw the winning name tonight when I get home from work, at around 9 pm PST. For details on the Blog Candy, please see this post.

This is the second card for my upcoming "Winter Tilda" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. To see the first card, please click here.

Oh, how I was straggling with this card... Two days ago I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning trying to make it work.. and still didn't like what I made. I was ready to give up on making a card with this Tilda on skis when my friend Deirdre told me that I just "had to" make a card with her because she is so CUTE ("to me"). So today, after teaching a class I decided to give it another try. I changed the layout and the colors, and it worked!! I tried to achieve the feel of the crisp winter morning.. what do you think?

This card started as a very simple one, but it wouldn't let me go until I added all the details it was asking for..

The card measures 6" x 6".

This is what inside of the card looks like.

All images were colored with Copic Markers. Piercing around the edges was done with the Tim Holtz ruler. Printed paper by Bo Bunny, greeting is from the Hero Arts stamp set. Christmas trees and Tilda from Magnolia. All supplies used to create this card are available at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you do not live in the area, you can call the store at 408-736-9151 to place your order.

This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, December 18th, 11 am to 2:30 pm
Thursday, December 18th, 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm

To sigh up for the class, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151.

See what a cutie (she is to me). Not the ski slope we talked about, but I think this one works even better, and with the softer colors she really stands out, way to go Ms Irnia. Deirdre
