Thank You Cards x 2

Good Morning!! I thought blogging was like riding a bike you never forget how to do it, but I have just found out thats not true. I thought I had scheduled the Peachy Keen Card below to post last evening but I obviously I did something wrong, so instead of 2 posts I have combined these two cards.

I know this is a Christmas Tilda but she is so pretty I just cannot consign her to the Christmas Box and have decided to use her all year through, especially as I am so disappointed with the Winter Tilda Club Kit, I don't know why but I just cannot get used to Tilda in HIGH HEELS!!!!!

This card has been made to thank my dear DIL for all the hard work and love she put into making Christmas so special for all the family this year.

Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks, btw have you seen the new Distress Ink Colours Tim Holtzs is going to release at the CHA Wow I just cannot wait and am saving my pennys as I must have them all. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and has been cut out with one of the Nesties Fancy Tags, the edges have been distressed with DI (an idea I stole from dear Rach). Papers are Magnolia and flowers as usual are from Wild Orchid Craft.

Now for the card that should have been posted yesterday. This is my DT creation for this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge, which is a fabulous sketch for you to follow. Please pop over to the challenge site to see the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT members, Kathy is always so kind and generous and has lived up to that with this weeks prize so I do hope you can come and join us.

Don't you just love these cute froggies I love the faces on both of them, they have been coloured with Copics, the Papers are Bo Bunny and I have used another of my new Martha Stewart Border Punches gain and also lots of lovely flat back pearls, the Punch and Pearls are all available from The Hobby House.

Well thats it for today.
Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

PS - and you are so right about being glad to see the back of 2009! although in reflection the bad times have actually pushed us forward into new and exciting ventures! take care dear and do keep in touch from time to time. xx

Both cards are very cute and I know how you feel about Tilda wearing HIGH HEELS! Oh, my! Whatever were they thinking? LOL! I think we want Tilda to stay a child forever. Try thinking of her as playing "dress up" in those High Heel images. Hehehe! That's the only thing that gets me through using those images without wincing and having that 'sinking" feeling, LOL!

Hi Jacqui,
It really is nice to see you feeling better and posting again. Both cards are terrific. You have such a knack for coloring/painting. You make it look so effortless. I only wish that it was.
Hugs, Janice

Jacqui it is so good to see that you are feeling better to make your gorgeous cards again! This Christmas season wasn't the same without them!!!
I agree with you on two things ~ love this Tilda to use year round as well as a couple more of them since I didn't get to use them and I don't like Tilda in heels either!! I like that she is a cute little girl!!
Anyways both cards are so pretty and I love the colors that you have paired together!!
Take care and have a Happy New Year!!

Cheryl said...

Helen Laurence said...

awww Tilda looks so adorable & those froggies are fabby!!

kuka said...

Hi Jacqui
I agree too, this image can't possibly be put away in the Xmas box - it is so versatile.
I also agree with the Tilda club set - I am disappointed with this lot of images. Not so cute at all although some of the accessory stamps are OK - we want cute Tilda back!!

Elizabeth S. said...

Both cards are just absolutely gorgeous!

Jacqueline (Sjakkie) said...

Wonderful, both cards! The green colours are super!
Hugs Jacqueline

These are just fabulous and i love the way you have distressed the first Tilda card can you give me a link, Pretty pleeese! i've checked out Rach's blog and cannot find it. I would love to be able to do this!
I also agree not sure about Tilda in High heels!!

Hugs Di xxxx

Danni said...

Your Tilda card is just gorgeous!! The other one is so nice too but that Tilda is just stunning!

Christine said...

What a great Tilda card! Love your coloring. I just made my first card with distress inks a couple days ago, it was lots of fun, but I definitely need to practice more! I used the winter kit for it. I was very disappointed in the Winter kit too; it was my first, and maybe last, kit.

Risa said...

debby4000 said...

Oh they're both fabulous but I do think the Tilda one is my fave.

Nannieflash said...

Hi Jacqui, I so agree its difficult to image Tilda wearing high heels but she certainly does in two of the new stamps, and its hard to create around them. I love your image its stunning, the papers are beautiful. Well done my love with love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Lorie said...

I DO love those froggies, and you've showcased them beautifully! Your cards and blog are amazing, and it's always a treat to visit! I'm glad you are feeling better! Take care!


Unknown said...

Two totally adorable cards Jacqui!
I can understand why you want to use this Tilda all year. She's so sweet and VERY suitable for all year round work.
LOVE your PK froggie card. But then, I love ALL your cards.
Happy New Year Sweetie!
Hugs Viv xxx
