Snow Much Fun with Tilda

It's Winter but most of the time here in Texas we just have to dream of snow.
This was what prompted me to ink up Rowdy Tilda and make a fun Winter card with her!

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes

Crafts And Me - Paper Tearing
ABC Design Challenge - Baby It's Cold Outside

Flutterby Wednesday - Open Week (must have butterfly, fairy or angel)
Phindy's Place - Distressing
Winter Wonderland - Let's Go Dotty

Card Recipe:
Image - Rowdy Tilda
Paper - Basic Grey Max and Whiskers and Basic Grey Olivia
Medium - Copic Markers
Flowers - Prima Mini Roses
Sentiment - The Pixie Cottage
Chalk Ink - Colorbox Cats Eye in Blue Lagoon



What is so ironic is that we traveled to England at Christmas and hoped to get some snow and hardly a flake was seen where we were but yesterday, here in Texas, we got a blizzard and here are some of the photos to prove it!



Yes that's me with my Covent Garden knitted hat and scarf on, who knew I'd actually need them this winter?


So just like Tilda we enjoyed a little of the white stuff!

Hi Katie, beautiful card, I love the Magnolia image. Fits in nicely with your gorgeous snowy photo's. Where I live in the UK we didn't see a lot of snow either, but at least you got to wear your new woolly hat and scarf. Came in handy wouldn't you say.. lol
Thanks for joining in at Belli challenge.

We got a bunch of snow dumped on us too. Love your snowy Tilda, shes just adorable. Thank you for the prompt about the getting rid of the spam message. It was my first one, and I was very confused by it lol. I read it and I was like what in the world are they talking about, then I saw your message and I was like oh okay and now its gone lol. Thank you again!

The card is delightful, Katie! Love the plaid and the grunged look for the inside of the card. Fabulous paper. You got snow??? We didn't get a thing here in Central Texas, and Brownwood was downright balmy!

Such a beautiful card! Love that Tilda that you've shaded so perfectly. Which part of Texas are you from? We recently moved from California to Georgetown Texas and today we have clear blue skies at 29 degrees, but no snow! My kids would love all that snow!

Stay warm,
Leslie

What a stunning card Katie, I love the image and colours. I also love your snow pics. I live sort of in the middle of England and we had lots of snow and ice over the Christmas break, I am hoping we don't get any more as this country grinds to a halt when the white stuff shows it's face! Thank you for sharing with us at Craft Your Days Away for our first challenge of 2011, good luck xxx
