When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Dreaming of Sunnier Days

I know we're desperate for the rain, and I truly am grateful for the water table filling storms we've been experiencing for the past few weeks, but, darn it, I'm really longing for a little bright sunshine for a change! Just a little, enough so I can get some nice, natural light to take pics of my cards instead of struggling with my scanner.  It's hard enough trying to find card making time in between doctor visits and those lovely unexpected medication side effects that have me drowsing off at the most inconvenient times. Ya'd think Mother Nature might take pity and cooperate just for a while!  Oh well, as they say, "If wishes were horses .....".
I'm determined to get the last laugh, though, so I made a cheery, summer-y Tilda all drenched in sunshine just because I wanted to. So there!



I used BG Citrus glitter cardstock, Prima flowers, and a cute little glitter-covered button from Dress It Up. Copic markers, a pearl stickpin and gingham ribbon from RRR added dimension and the the sentiment is from Stampendous.

SPECIAL NOTE
Please come visit on Monday January 10. Our Squigglefly Design Team is holding our first challenge of the new year and we invite everyone to join in on the fun. I hope my silly card will please all of "ewe." I had fun making it.

  7. Oh sweet, I could use a bit of sunshine right now. Your card is so cheerful. Love the warm colours. And this Tilda holds a special place in my heart as it's the very first Tilda I ever saw and she led me to dicover the Magnolia world. Love your Big Citrus cardstock--it's gorgeous. Terrific job on the card.

    Hugs,
