With all my love........

                                                      Hello everyone!

                I have had a challenge given to me by Diana to make a card using a
                                               sketch she sent to me.                
                                              Here is the picture of it :

I really quite like it.
I have used the sketch to make my card for 
Colour Challenge #6

       This month at the Challenge Blog, it is PAT FRANK'S  turn to choose the            
                                             Challenges for us all. 
                  Pat's work is awesome - you should all take a look at her blog.
                                       You will love all of her cards :o)

          The COLOUR CHALLENGE for this month is : PINK and GREEN.
                            Here is the beautiful picture Pat has given us:

                                                  What a great photo!!!!

            I chose to use ' WAITING TILDA' from "YOU ARE SO SPECIAL'
                                           Collection - January 2011.
                                 She is number 315 at DIANA'S STORE.
                           I have also used the sentiment ' with all my love'
                                it is number 710 from the same collection
                                               at DIANA's STORE.
( Blogger has been updated and won't let me put the link in for these two images :o(
    if you go to the YOU ARE SO SPECIAL PAGE at DIANA'S STORE  and click
on page two you will find WAITING TILDA partway down the page. The sentiment 
                       is found on page 3 - second from the bottom. )

                                    Here is my card for today's Challenge: * my pictures are clickable for larger view again *

This little Tilda has had my heart since I first saw her. She reminds me of myself. Shy
              and quiet and FULL of LOVE - not quiet knowing how to say
                                                I LOVE YOU........
  Today she has finally gotten brave enough to tell that special person how she feels!

                                      Here is a picture of her close up:

                                Isn't she just the sweetest wee thing ever???

                     I also have a picture of my flower close up so that you
                            can see the Stickles I added to the centre and the
                                      Crystal Lacquer I added as drops of
                                            water to some of the petals.

                                        Here is the inside left of my card:

                                            Here is the inside right:

                    My style of card making is Clean and Simple. I hope it
  helps you all realize that you don't need to have a lot of 'stuff' on a card to make it
                  attractive and a joy to receive for those special in your life.

                        Remember that Diana gives a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the winner :o)

Hey my sweet chocolate-lovin' friend!! What a beautiful card!! I love the way you colored this adorable little Tilda! (Didja notice, this Tilda has a chin!!! hehehe!) I love the pinks and greens you used to color her outfit...I tell ya, I'd give my eye teeth for some yummy green shoes like Tilda's wearing!! Perfect!! And I so love this clean 'n simple design style ... and have been working on a little clean 'n simple myself! It's harder than it looks! :-) Have a fab day sweetie! Hugs. Pat

Sandy said...

Hey Sweet lady! Candy your card is gorgeous. I have said this before, but I will repeat what I often been told by professional artists. KISS - which is translated as keep it simple sugar or keep it simple stupid. I have heard it stated both ways many times. I love the message you sent out to the group encouraging people that the card does not have to be all dressed up like a circus horse. LOL! That's what Mama used to say about getting all gussied up. Your card is wonderful Candy with touch of brilliance - that dew drop! Your coloring is so good Candy. Your papers are scrumptious. Wonderful card my friend!!

Judy K. said...

Such a pretty, pretty card Candy! LOVE that green with the pink and the crystal lacquer you used for drops of water are awesome! Gotta get me some!

Betsy said...

I LOVE your clean and simple cards!!! I think they really spotlight your coloring, rather than it getting lost in all the "stuff". Beautiful card!

WOW I just love that sketch and how you made it work. You're don't have to have a lot on a card to make it look nice. Especially when you color as well as my friend Candy. LOL! And great idea to add water to the flower. I've done it before but forgot all about it!! This is just usual!! Hugs! Hope all is well with you!
