You warm my heart...

This month I was going to skip doing winter cards and go right into Valentine's Day cards!
But it appears that I just can't seem to put away those winter images. Could it be that it is so cold here...I heard on the radio this morning that on Tuesday half of England was home because of snow. Wow...a couple more months of this and we should see signs of spring!
I bought this MS pine punch in the fall and wanted to use finally I found a great use for it on this card. Tilda is making the most out of the snow!
I wanted Tilda to sit on a snowball but did not have any images that would work. So I drew my best snowball I could and cut it out, then coloured it up with copics.

Thank-you so much for taking the time out of your day to visit and leaving such wonderful comments. I appreciate them all so much!

This is so cute! Your snowball is perfect!! I love how you used Tilda both inside and outside your card. That pine punch is really neat. Very pretty!

Danielle said...

Christine, you are out-doing yourself with these cards! Gorgeous just doesn't even come close!! Your detail, colouring and layout is perfect! I don't blame you for carrying on with winter cards when it's this cold outside - just think of all the cards you'll have stashed for next Christmas!!
Hugs, Danielle

Oh my this is simply gorgeous. Gotta love that Bo Bunny DP. I bought some more yesterday. The punch looks fabulous on the inside of the card and I love that image and snowball on the inside too.

Wow you are all in the grips of being snowed in and we are well and truly in summer. Today it is going to be 36 degrees Celcius which works out to be 96.6 degrees farenheit. Phew. Hot indeed. tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter. I love summer but not when so hot.

Christine, your colour sense never cease to amaze me. You're always spot on. This is so pleasing to the eyes. Awesome colouring. Love how you've set up the scene on the front and terrific job you did on the inside too. Love the card.

Hi Christine, yes we are expecting more of the white stuff over the weekend, Im really fed up with it, the roads around here are completely snowed up. I love your card though I image poor Tilda is getting a cold bum sitting on that snowball. Take care with love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
