Flowers 'n pearls




Hi everyone...it's been 2 weeks since I posted anything. That, in itself, is crazy...but, what's even more outrageous is that I haven't made a card in that period of time either!! I started my new job the day after Mother's day and am still trying to get accustomed to missing my afternoon "nappy nap"! hehehe

So...here's a little card I put together...it's pretty basic, but I think it's kinda cute. The card features Tilda from the 2010 Easter Collection...she's holding some tulips and is propped on a watering can (which probably is a bit uncomfortable...but you know Tilda, she's a good sport about such things!)

I apologize...I colored the images 2 weeks ago and didn't keep a record of the copics I used. Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek...and, as always, I adore feedback!! Have a great Sunday evening...and a great week!! Pat

Pat OMG this is so stunning, so filled with beauty.. so much to take in one can hardly fill it all in with just a few moments... must take a lot longer.. so many details, so many embellishments, the coloring is supurb, the layout is astonishing. This card on the outside is amazing, then you open it up and WOW you have opened another miracle.. the most beautiful sight to behold.. the breathtaking corners will forever be remembered by the receiver of this card.

Pat,
Your card is beautiful. I love what you have done with the inside as well.
Sorry to hear you have had to go back to work - so hard on one's body to get used to all 'that' again.
Use your free time to make cards - don't worry so much about blog hopping. You will need to enjoy your time off.
Hugs, Candy
