You can hear the wind whistling

My blog has been so quiet!  First we were out of town, and now illness has set in at my household!  First my hubby came down with a cold, now my daughter with a flu or something, and then tonight I realized that I think I'm catching it too... no fun!  I apologize for not being around to visit, hopefully by next week  things will get settled and everyone will feel better!


I've used 'Will You Be My Valentine' Tilda from the 'You are So Special' Magnolia release.  The sentiment is popped up, and I have used some lace trim behind the scalloped circle.


Copic colours:
Skin- E000, 00, 93
Dress, socks- YG000, 01, 03, E40
Flowers- E41, 42, W0, Y21, G17
Hair, Shoes- E30, 31, 33, 35
Shadows- feet (C0, BG93) body (BG0000, 000)

The papers are from the 'Little Girl' line by Echo Park, and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Oh Christine so sorry you are all feeling so bad.. wish I were close I would bring a big pot of home made chicken noodle soup and leave it outside your door(Grandma always said it cured everything). Hope you will get better fast as this card is so adorable.. love your coloring and your simplicity of it.. gives it a beauty all its own... I love the new Tilda line and you did justice to her in your coloring... A BEAUTY!!
Hugs, Jean
