Tilda with Peach

Happy Monday everyone... at least here it still is for a little longer. I hope this finds everyone happy and well. We are FINALLY starting to get some normal spring weather and have been taking advantage of it. We had been so cooped up for so long, I enjoy to get more fresh air and be outside.

I apologize for not sending a post sooner, been busy doing other things. I have completed a card that I want  to share with you. I colored up this Tilda image and liked how the colors blended together but struggled at finding the right papers to compliment her. I punched out some leaves and put them together to create the look of tree branches, a perfect combination for Tilda who is picking some peaches. I colored a white little flower to better accent the card.



Supplies
Image - Tilda picking peaches from Magnolia
Sentiment - Dream Impressions
Card Stock & Designer Paper - from Stampin Up
Flowers - from Prima
Punches - Leaves (Martha Stewart), Corners (EK Success), Circle Dies (Spellbinder)
Ribbon and Pearl to finish it off.

I hope you like her and would love to read your comments.

I will try to get a new card posted at least once a week unless something requires my attention. As I had mentioned in an earlier posting, my husband has epilepsy and it can be challenging for they (doctors) have not been able to find anything to control them. He struggles with multiple seizures every 1-2 weeks and I need to keep an eye on him and help as needed. It can be stressful for his congnitive abilities are continueing to decline. I am not complaining, just stating a fact that affects my daily life.

Hugs,
Karen

  9. What a beautiful card. I love the colors you chose. It reminds me of summer days and snacking on peaches fresh from my dad's peach trees. Those were some of the best peaches ever!
