Not a big sport fan, but I love Tilda



Hello Everyone....Sunday evening here, and must admit to not being the biggest sport fan in the world, but really enjoying the olympics....swimming on at the moment, left me breathless [I can't swim]...but yell SHARK!! and I show you how to run on water..watched the mens gymnastics..fantastic, and womens weight lifting this morning...amazing, and I thought hoovers were heavy..

Anyhoo..had time to whip up a card...and here it is for 2 challenges...

Tildas town  [paper piecing ]

Just Magnolia  [Country theme]



Looks a bit wishy washy...but there is my Tilda holding Tulips...

Paper pieced her dress and boots....coloured with Faber Castell pencils....

Memory box tree die, and there's that fence again from Mariannes creatables, a border sticker of grass, flowers, and the wee birds were actually on there but I picked them off and put them in the tree...



A close up of image......with a bit of glitter on her apron....and just remembered that was coloured with a copic G21.
Paper from my stash and added black gingham ribbon, as the corner up there looked sad..





So disappointed with the pale look, it looks so vibrant and bright in 'my pictures'..and my watermark has all but vanished...think I will stick to the old way....mmmm...

Never mind, there she is, off to watch some more Olympics, if my mother knew I was watching sport, she would be smiling from ear to ear..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy. This is an adorable card! I love your paper piecing and your coloring as always. I cut off our cable, so we just have internet at the moment. ( I was tryng to be thrifty and safe a little money) Jerry didn't mention that the Olympics were starting or I would have waited. lol... I do know how to swim and I LOVE to watch, but I guess this time around I won't worry about it. Don't really have a lot of time to watch anyway. lol... Hope your week is off to a great start. Hugs, Lisa
