Tilda - As cute as can Bee ... and some sad news

Hi there!

Yippee ... I got some more time in the craft room today!  And I decided to ink up a 'new to me' Tilda stamp that I had purchased back in the Fall.  I have to admit to being a little scared to pick up my copics again after not colouring with them for so long, but after a few minutes I was in my 'zone' and happily off in copic land!  The papers are from an SU! pad.

It took me forever and an age to embellish this card - I just couldn't find the right stuff until I found this felt and beaded flower.  I adhered the two together and I think it's the ideal finishing touch I was looking for!  I've also made a commitment to myself this year that any cards I make I will finish off the inside before I walk away from my desk.  So, this card is complete and ready to be sold!

I'm sure there are plenty of challenges out there right now but I don't have the energy to sit and wander through them all.  Maybe next time ...!!

Some sad news which I need to share is that PaperWorksCo is closing it's online store.  I have been a part of Peggy's fabulous DT team for 2 years and I am going to miss her and the team terribly.  She had a fabulous 4 years with her online store but commitments and priorities have changed and she and Mike have decided to move on to pastures new.  I wish them all the best in their new ventures and can't thank them enough for the generosity they've shared with me and the beautiful friendships that I've made through PWCO.  Goodbye PaperWorksCo ... you will be sorely missed.

Thanks for stopping in today - great to see you here!  And thanks for any comments that you should leave - I love reading them and they are very much appreciated!  Until next time ....

Hugs, Danielle

I know, it is so sad to hear that PWCO has closed. But I, too, wish Peggy and Mike all the best in their new adventures. Love seeing that you are back in your crafty zone. Loving the new Tilda! Your colouring skills definitely did not get rusty over the break! I'm promising myself to use my Tilda's a bit more than I have been lately. Maybe even pick up a new one or two.

Your colouring on the adorable Tilda is amazing Danielle. Love the chocolate brown and the pinks. The glitter on her wings is soooo pretty! Love how you fed the ribbon thru the image at the side.....great idea! Thank-you for your kind comment on my card today, I so appreciate it!
