Inventory Challenge #80

Good morning to all my lovely friends! Danielle and I, along with our talented team, welcome you once again to our Inventory Challenge. This week, the theme is to "use a Tilda or other image that best exemplifies you and why". Well, of course, Stamping Tilda came to mind immediately, but I decided that Tilda Walking Wiola from the new Summer Memories Collection was the best choice for me. The reason this image most exemplifies me is because I love walking my wonderful German Shepherd. He is a rescue dog and the light of our life. A friend of mine heads a German Shepherd rescue and thanks to her, we have the most wonderful companion on the face of the earth. This image, however, presented a problem......what does Tilda have in her right hand????????????? I asked several of my crafting friends and no one seemed to know! Sooooooooooooooo, I decided it's a POOP BAG.....that's my story and I'm sticking to it.....***smile***!!!! At first glance, I thought it was a glove, but she does not appear to be wearing a glove on her left hand! Anyway.... Tilda is definitely all dressed up and ready for a party. She has the flowers, an envelope which probably contains a gift of $$ and, of course, her furry companion in tow. I showcased her on papers from MME's Life of the Party Collection. All embellishments are from my stash. See that adorable bauble on the tag....that's from Prima. Love it!!!!!!!! I included a picture of Buddy and I going for our morning walk....poop bag in hand...hahahahaha! In all honesty,living in rural America, I don't need a poop bag. Buddy is well mannered...he goes in the field! Now, I would love to invite you to visit my wonderful friends and teammates and see their creations: DANIELLE, CATHY-LYNN, RENE, SYLVIA, NADINE, KATHY and ELLE. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate all of you so much. Big Hugs, Christina

Every detail on your card is so special and your dog is also very special. That's a great picture of you too! This was a great treat!

  11. Girly, girly girly! I am laughing out loud looking at that picture and reading your story! You are so funny! You're right of course, what ELSE could it be in Tilda's hand!!! Maybe Pauline will read your story and tell us what she had in mind when she drew Tilda.....in any case your card is completely delightful! Your coloring, dp choices and embellies are so perfect! Great job and give Buddy a rub behind the ears for me...hugs...Barb <><

  17. Hi ya Sweet Christina! Oh my goodness .. yes yes yes .. you sure resemble Tilda walking her cutie pooch! Buddy is such a handsome dog! Love the poop bag .. hahahahah!!!!! :) You know, I never really thought about it until now. All this time, I thought she was wearing a glove too .. and then you pointed out she has no glove on her left hand! And before, I thought, "sheesh, that glove sure does look WAY too big for her hand!" But yea .. I think you're right about the poop bag thing! LMAO!

    Absolutely GORGEOUS creation once again! Love he lace and the Prima bauble .. as well as your FABULOUS colourings!!!!! This is a STUNNING design my dear!

    Much Love,
    Elise
