Tilda and Friend

At long last I have put a new card on. I must say it has taken me a long time.
Since my DH Doug had his operation (a roaring success) I have had some sort of infection in my body that just doesn't seem to want to go no matter what. I certainly have improved but find my energy levels are very low. I enjoyed making this card of Tilda with lamb. Little lamb looks not quite right in color but I wll practice some more. I actually used my Prismacolor pencils and white spirits for this one.

Oh! What a beautiful card!!! Your coloring is just stunning, and your little images have such life!!! I love how you did the shadow around Tilda and the Lamb and under their feet! This is just gorgeous!

So glad to hear that Doug is doing so well post operatively! Way to go Doug! However, I'm sorry to hear that some bug has decided to set up residence in you and that it's leaving you with little energy. Hope you'll feel better very soon!
