Tilda's Valentine Collage

Hello everyone....Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and I've been busy making cards for the occasion.  Tilda's Valentine Collage is not my first card, but it's the first one I'm posting.  I have always been fascinated with collages and decided to make one showing Tilda.  I always think of collages as an eclectic mix of images and ephemera brought together showing wonderful memories.  In this case, who can argue with love?

Some of the images are from Digital Collage Sheets - a wonderful site, by the way - and I added bits and pieces of ephemera until I was satisfied with the way it looked. Tilda was colored with Copic markers and she was the last piece I added to the collage.  I hope you like this card, and I'll be posting more Valentine cards in the weeks ahead.  I welcome your feedback and appreciate comments from you!

Winter Hugs

Happy New Year and welcome to 2013!  It always takes me some time after the holidays to get used to another new year.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  I spent mine in Puerto Rico, and I always have a nice rest when I visit my family for Christmas.  My sister and I made several cards, and I even made a few featuring Tilda.  This one is actually a belated Christmas card for a dear friend in Barcelona, but I guess it can also be sent anytime during the winter season.  The inside of the card reads: in the winter we can build a snowman.

I colored Tilda and Snowy with Copic markers, and used Spellbinders, Martha Stewart punches and doily, and beautiful shimmer cardstock, in addition to several rhinestone snowflakes and a touch of Diamond Stickles.
