Christmas Card #4

This week's Christmas card is for 2 challenges.  The first is for Bah Humbug and this week it is oldie but goldie.  I have had this stamped image 'Waiting Tilda' for ages.  It was an image donated by a good friend and its another I have been saving.   Why do I do this?  Does anybody else?  I have an envelope full of images I am saving, maybe that should be my challenge this year to actually use them ha ha.

The second challenge I am entering is Winter Wonderland which is to use a sentiment as a focal point on your card.   This sentiment is another I have had in my drawers for ages.  It is part of a foiling and flocking kit.  I have used the flocking  on this one.  It was really easy too, don't know why I haven't used it before.

Gorgeous hun! Love the big sentiment, you can almost feel the texture just from looking at it, if you get what I mean, and Tilda looks such a doll sitting there patiently waiting for Christmas. Brilliant. Sxx

Great image. Love her, and the big sentiment. Gorgeous colouring too.
I dont store coloured images but I do store ready to colour images, then I forget they are there and stamp some more.We are very scary people.

Love that circular sentiment panel with the image sitting at the side & your colouring of her boots is gorgeous. those Christmas trees are fun. I too have some stamped images I've not got round to using - saving them for when my colouring is better! I like the green cardigan & isn't it funny but I can almost feel the texture in it.

Think we all save things and we shouldn't really as they tend to get forgotten. So glad you got these out and created this fab card. Love all the elements. It's a winner.

Hi Debs ... Your card is lovely with cute patient Tilda waiting next to the large circle sentiment. Bet the flocking feels wonderful.
I'm another one who has a folder full of images waiting to be coloured - maybe I should dig them out and get some of them ready for action while I'm recuperating =) Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
