Beachy Card

Oh my, I have been gone a while huh? Well, I have been doing a few other things around here and have needed a little break from blogging.  I decided I had better get to work on this cute Tilda before Summer is over.  We are already feeling the signs of Fall here which is really early for us! 


I will admit to you that I almost threw this away.  I am not happy at all with my coloring, but like I said, I was taking a break and not really in the mood at the time. I do think this is a cutie little Tilda though and I paired her with the amazing Maja Designs papers! These nautical paper are totally gorgeous!!!! 

I raided hubby's garage stash for the rope and an old button.  There are a few shells mixed with the flowers.  I left off the sentiment in case I need it for a specific occasion.

I am going on a little trip to Colorado with hubby next week.  We are hiking while we are still young haha!  I hope to be refreshed when I get back so I can start crafting again!

Hugs to you all!!

Hunny how could you ever not be happy with your colourwork? Really? She is gorgeous, although I wouldn't want to swim today, far too chillsome. I love all the dimension, and would love to have seen you raiding the garage!! Hugs Sxx

Hi Dena,

This is lovely and your colouring is great, I think you are your own worst critic. Enjoy Colorado, some beautiful scenery will help get the creative juices flowing again.

I think this is gorgeous! I'd be over the moon if I would colour half as well as you! lol.

Adore all the embellishments too, and the striped paper is brilliant!

Total süß die Karte, das Mädel schaut toll aus und ist genial coloriert.

Schau doch mal bei mir im CreativAtelier rein, da ist heute "Freudichtag am Freitag", wäre doch toll wenn du da mit machst.

LG Gisela
