Christmas Tilda

Well it's another miserable day here in Manchester but warm and muggy!!.

No doubt you will have heard the news all over blogland that there is a cheeky mare on Ebay selling a CD with cards made with Sugar Nellie images. So I popped over to have a nosey and got the shock of my life.  One of my cards was included on the CD.  She is saying she has got permission to use them and has even paid for the use of them, well she hasn't paid me or any of the others anything.  This CD has now been taken off Ebay but she has loads of others including Tildas, Stamping UP, etc.  Bev and Maddy have set up a new forum Stop Thieves so please pop over and take a look.  Suffice to say I am not a happy bunny and will be watermarking all my cards from now on.  I have also joined My Free Copyright.com.

Anyway onto this week's Christmas Card.  Again it fits into a few challenges.


I have used this gorgeous Tilda with Heart Ornament and coloured her with Promarkers.  I've added a bit of 3D gloss to the heart and sprinkled on a tiny bit of glamour dust.  The papers are from my scraps drawer and matted onto a piece of red card that came as packing in the deeds to my house which I received last week (yyyyyyaaaaaaaaayyy finally paid off the mortgage!!)  Ribbon and gems from stash and white gel pen faux stitching to finish.

Challenges entered:

Bah Humbug - Recycling or Shades of Green
Winter Wonderland - The Colours of Christmas
Sparkle's Forum - Holly or Ivy
Sketch Saturday - The Sketch
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with option of stitching

I was only thinking yesterday that I ought to be starting my Xmas cards soon .... and now I've seen your fabulous Tilda I can feel a sense of urgency creeping up. Superb card hunny, love the image and the traditional colours, so gorgeous. Not seen these CDs on ebay but have heard the word, it's appalling what some people will try to get away with! Sxx

I didnt know about this CD Debs, but I saw one the other week with Tildas and I thought, 'I wonder if some of mine are on there'... but how would you find out without giving them money? :(

Thanks for the link to MFC, Im gonna register I think :)

Love your xmas Tilda :) This is a lovely image (I like the vintage ones) and the traditional colours are perfect.

Have a great week, and keep up the good work! ;)

hugs
