Midwinter Tilda

Hi Peeps,

Hope you've had a great weekend, didn't it go quick, yet again! Well I guess mine was better than the last one but Ollie has suffered a different sort of attack this week....... the scissors.  I took him to the groomers as he had at least 2 inches of hair all around him, so he looked like a little ball of white fluff.  But when I picked him up he looked like a different dog as he had been scalped, literally, bless him.  I don't think the Groomer knew how to cut a Bichon.  He's body has been scalped and then she left his legs and feet long?  I know it will grow back.  Fortunately I got a number from the Discover Dogs show at Earl's Court so hopefully next time the we will get it right!

Today's card is my DT card for BunnyZoe and the challenge this month is an easy one...... Christmas with pearls.  I used Midwinter Tilda, isn't she adorable and oodles of stuff from the Bunny Zoe store, definitely yummy goodies in that store.

The tree's are the Magnolia Doohickey Spruce die, links in the ingredients below.  I used my copics to create some sprucing and added some glittery snowtex and I really like how they turned out.

The wooden ornment leaves, love these, again link below, have been covered with Gold detail embossing powder and heated.

I have coloured Tilda with copics, of course and added lots of glittered snow tex for texture for this wintery scene.
