Tilda's Christmas Scene

 


This card is one I have been wanting to make for a while now, the background pond stamp I purchased (actually I think I got it when I won free stamps from Diana at Magnolia-licious, thank you! click here for it) specifically for this skating Tilda and Edwin. I made the card 5" square but I think in order to get the perspective a little better a 6" card would work better. I colored the card with Stampin' Up markers this time - they don't blend easily but I wanted to give them a try so this would be brighter than with the water color crayons. Anyway it's just a nice Winter scene and a fun one to make. Hope you are taking some time to enjoy the season- stop for a minute and think what it is all about and what is really important. I have this year and am going to make some changes next year accordingly! Merry Christmas!

Gosh,a lot of people have commented on this one. Of course I love this card, and it reminds me of when we went ice skating on the lake behind Aunt Gert's house. That was fun!

Adorable! This is one of my favorite Tilda images! (And the first one I purchased several months ago!) This scene is so cute - I love the Alota pond behind it!
