Waiting for Winter?!

Not me, but I think Tilda is! I didn't mean to neglect my blog for so many days. My craft materials are in a shambles due to an attemt to organize my supplies. The big question is, "Why, oh, why do I buy so much paper!!?"
Anyway, I decided to make a card for the Friday Sketchers sketch and this is it. It's pretty simple really and I wish I could figure out where I could put a cream colored bow-maybe in the upper left for balance?

This is one of my favorite winter Tildas and I have used her often. Diana has her in the store now and you can also see some other cards made with her at Magnolia-licious. There is a huge inventory of Magnolia stamps at great prices!
My Mag is colored with copic markers. The paper is one of the Cosmo Crickets Christmas designs that came from my stash. The 5.5" square card base is soft suede. Then there is a layer of Ocean Tides (PTI). The Spellbinders Fleue de Lis Pendant is cut from Confetti Cream. Most layers are sponged with Tea Dye distress ink. In the corner is one of the Glitter Glass snowflakes created by Anna Wight. I made up a stash of them this morning so you will be seeing more of them. I have the directions and will get them linked up in my next post (Promise!)
Okay guess that's it except for the colors. they are as follows:
E000, E01, E93
E33, Y21, E08, E27, E77, E99
BG0000, Goooo, BG10, BG72, YG63, YG99, E42 ( I used a lot of colors to get a match for the paper (sort of). I use E42 to "dirty it up"
Thanks to all the servicemen and women who have fought for our freedom, past and present!
In our home, we are so grateful to you!

And it's Anna Wight amazing? She lives just up the road from me (well quite a few miles)and I follow her blog all the time. Her snowflakes are gorgeous and you've done a wonderful job with yours.
