Hot or Cold challenge

Well this week certainly got away from me!! I had every intention of having this card done a few days ago ---but I have been working more hours at work & with the whole car situation, I haven't had much free time.

As it happens, this week's challenge on the 7 Kids Challenge Blog is Hot or Cold.....& since I had already started this card I thought I'd enter it!



This was one of MANY images I received in a goodie package from my friend Tammi. She is so darn generous! But you know what -----now I MUST have this stamp! So --my good friend is making me spend money! LOL....yeah, like I need help spending money! And if I buy this one, I may as well buy more. Kind of like "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"! "If you give a stamper one stamp, you'll have to give her more. Then you'll have to give her some ink. Then she'll want some paper, & some Copic markers to color the image"

The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses....I did the sentiment on my computer....I used Nestabilities Blossom 2 for the layer behind Tilda...& Labels 9 for the sentiment. How much do you love the punch?? That's the Infinite Loops punch from Martha Stewart....perfect for when you just don't have the right ribbon! Lots & lots of Stickles everywhere....the sentiment edge....Tilda's coat & lantern....& on the flower.



I hate taking pictures at night! I just can't capture the sparkle. Darn winter & getting dark so early!



I sponged Worn Lipstick Distress Ink on the edges of the flower (my very first purchase from Wild Orchid Crafts! Amazing service!!) before adding the glitter. Hmmm...think I'll have to actually make a BOX for this card .....love these roses but I don't think an envelope is going to quite cut it!!

I hope you all have a great weekend! Ours will be spent car shopping. We got our check from the insurance company so that makes shopping a *little* easier, but it's still a pain! Thank goodness for the cyber world --remember the **old days** when you had to drive from car lot to car lot & actually walk around & look at all the cars?? Of course you still have to check out the potential purchases, but it sure makes it a lot easier to pick out what you want to look at online!!!

I love the added oomph to the flower and the pearls add so much. I totally agree about wanting more after coloring up a stamped image that you don't own. I usual hoard my stamped images sent from others cause I don't want to mess them up, lol. :) Thanks for sharing your adorable Tilda!
