Thank You Tilda

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 92 now & we don't know where the heck she is.

I've always loved to walk -- I used to walk a LOT before I was working, when the kids were in school. Now it seems like there isn't enough time. I'm not big on New Year's resolutions, but I decided I *have* to start walking again. I did really well over the holiday -- I figured the more I walked, the more I could eat. I just need to keep at it. I do not have good genes -- lots of heart problems in the family -- so I really need to get moving. Yeah yeah, I should eat healthier too. One thing at a time.

Hmmmm .... wonder if I should moon walk instead of power walk ......

So I have a surprise today - a card that HASN'T been previously posted! Yep, hot off the presses. I had this stamp that I won in some blog candy & decided she was perfect for a thank you card.

This is Tilda with 3 Flowers from the Hoppy Easter 2010 collection. I colored her with Copics -- the papers are DCWV Old World Stack -- added lots of Crackle Paint on the edges -- the sentiment is from an old SU set called Seeing Spots. Don't think I ever even used that set -- the stamps look awfully clean! Lots of flowers (spritzed with Glimmer Mist), pearls & other doo-dads.

Not my best coloring but hey -- I'm out of practice!

Can you see the shimmer on those flowers?

I will be adding this to my Etsy shop as soon as I finish the inside -- my paint is drying :)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

7 Kids College Fund -- Try Something New (new stamp -- well, new to me!)

Magnolia-licious Highlites -- Anything Goes (my favorite challenge!)

Totally Tilda -- Thank You

Simon Says Stamp -- New Something (New stamp again)

Papertake Weekly -- Anything Goes with New option

Thanks so much for visiting & enjoy the rest of your week!
