Christmas Tilda

Hi Blogger Friends!

Today I decided to color with Prismacolor pencils and odourless white spirits (Gamsol).
I find them so easy to use. I have used some of the new Stampin up papers.
Made the rose and leaves myself. Distressed the edges and did some faux stitching.
These days my machine stitching is rather crooked. I am pleased with my coloring on this card but not so the layout.
Oh! it is so good to be back crafting and feeling well. I go again to the hospital on Monday.
This time I will be having an ultrasound on my stomach and liver. Praying all will be well.

Great the colors. There is not a thing wrong with the layout. Really like the turned down corner with the button.

Hope all goes well with your tests. LindaC

Marion, you card is gorgeous. I always like how you colour with them--so beautiful. Yes I find them easier to work with too, but I'm still a novice at it. Practice, practice, practice...LOL. Love your rose and leaves. I tend to forget about the leaves you know. Yours look so life-like. Nice touch with the turned down corner.
I'm hoping for the very best for you for Monday. Will be thinking of you.

Many hugs,
