Tilda with many Hearts...

Firstly, a very warm welcome to my new Creative Friends, always nice to meet you.  I am so pleased you found something of interest to make you want to join my little corner in cyberspace.

Happy Sunday everyone... may you experience a most blessed day. This is the day I usually set aside to listen to my collection of Christian CD's.  I have quite a few favourite songs, viz. Who Am I, What If His People Prayed, If We Are The Body by Casting Crowns.  I also enjoy listening to Avalon's Testify to Love, Give It Up, Everything To Me, Adonai and... many more.  If my Christian friends know of any artists who sing wonderful Praise and Worship songs, please let me know, so that I can go look for their CD's in our Christian bookshops... thanks.  It would be nice to listen to something new for a change.

I managed to make another Maggie card for you this morning... I am showcasing our gorgeous little Tilda with many Hearts for the first time today.  Before I went to bed last night, which was way past midnight, I had coloured her in, put all the papers together so all I needed to do was put it all together this morning... I already had a picture in my head how I wanted this card to turn out, strange but true...doesn't happen THAT often...LOL

The papers I've used are from bits and pieces of scraps left over from making other cards, so I have no idea who the designers are.  Used my flowers again... added that lovely organza heart ribbon for effect and some pearls in the each corner.

The base of my card is white, I layered some soft lemon coloured cardstock onto that to give a nice border and then found a lovely soft pink and lemon coloured paper to place on top of that.  I also managed to find a nice piece of love script paper to use, to fit in with the theme.

Tilda was coloured using Copics. You can just see a peek of the inside of the card, which I've managed to decorate as well. Nice to finish the insides too.

Thank you for your visits and comments, thank you for providing loads of inspiration and I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Next weekend is a long weekend for us South Africans, being Monday, 21 March... yippeeeee   You know what that means... lying in a little bit longer and just chilling and relaxing and of course CRAFTING!!!

Take care, hugs Sharon x

Sharon, your card is way adorable! Love the dictionary papers! So cool!

Funny you mention Avalon, I saw them in concert at a Mall several years ago. They are amazing! If you like Praise and Worship music have you tried Lakewood Church CDs? They are so good! I promise you wouldn't be disappointed.
Hugs, Dena
