Flowery Tilda

I started this card earlier in the week but couldn't get the enthusiasm to get it finished.  Had a really tough week in work - I said bye to 2 friends who I've worked with for over 24 years and then heard that some other colleagues are facing compulsory redundancy.  So it's been a very emotional few days :(

My card uses one of my unloved Tilda images ... I'm still tempted to draw in a smile LOL!  I coloured her to match my pretty DP and then pulled the usual trick of covering up most of it with other papers!

Image coloured with pencils.  Martha Stewart grass border punch.  Dienamics Mini tab.  Sentiment is an oldie from Elzybells.

  5. This is just a sweetie. Your image is darling even without a mouth. :-) I'm sorry you had a hard week. You should just get a new crafty or two to get you over the hump. Enabling again......... Ha
    Seriously, I know it has been a very hard time.

  6. Oh no, it's so very hard when friends leave work, especially through redundancy. Been there, done that, and it's so sad.

    I love how you've put your Tilda image on a tag shape! Your papers and colours are lovely, too!

    I hope you have a good week, my lovely!

    love Mags B x

    P.S If I have already left a comment Lynne please ignore this one! My laptop started going haywire so after several restarts I've got the flipping thing going again but couldn't work out if my comment managed to go for moderation or not xx
