Sweet roses from Tilda

If you are looking for my Paper Sundaes Birthday celebration and blog hop post, click here!  (If you're not looking for it, you should be!  We've got 11 amazing prizes!

This week while I've been hibernating at home avoiding our treacherous roads, I managed to get a bit of crafting time in and coloured up this Tilda from my stash.  I've been trying to figure out what her name is, but I notice that she has two different names, depending on where you look!  At All That Scraps and Simon Says Stamp, she is called Tilda with Bunch of Roses.  At Magnolia US, it's called Tilda Holding Bunch of Roses.  Whatever you call her, I call her cute!  :)

I've used the current sketch from Simon Says Stamp Challenge that ends right away!  They must be in my time zone, most of the continent is in tomorrow already.

I've used some yummy papers from Bo Bunny and my brand new Magnolia Doohickey Die that arrived today in one of four packages in my mailbox.  It was like Christmas in January!!  LOL

Copic colours:
Skin:  E000, 00, 02, Chalk for blush
Shirt, Roses:  R000, 01, 02
Pants:  BG000, 72, 75, 78
Hair, Shoes:  E30, 31, 34, 35, 37
Tag, twine:  E41, 43  
Greenery:  YG13, 17, 93
Butterfly:  R81, 83, 85
Shadow:  W0, 1, 3, blender

And now to share with you a photo taken off our back deck:

Talk about a pristine back yard!  Normally we would have rabbit, cat and squirrel paths, but not this year!  That table is a normal height, no way are the small animals going to take that much snow on!  LOL

Now for my challenges:
Just Magnolia:  My Favourite Things (my copics and Tildas!)
Pile It On:  Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge:  Love is in the Air
Tuesday Throwdown:  Valentine
Stamp Something:  Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And if you're braving terrible roads and weather like we've been, stay warm and drive safe!

I've made a note to myself to haul that same stamp out for some inking as your card has inspired me. With all these blog hops happening there's not much time left these days for simple stamping lol.

Love the snow pic, don't get it where I live - Queensland Aussie.

Beautiful card Christine. The coloring is great and I LOVE, LOVE the layout your have chosen. Btw, your patio frightens me! LOL omg...I can't believe you have that much snow. I showed my son your other pictures, he is so antsy to see some snow! We loved what appeared to be a tunnel, but I think was your driveway! LOL
