Tilda with Heart Arrows


Good morning to all my fabulous friends....hope your week is going well! This is my final card for Valentine. I am featuring the adorable Tilda with heart arrows from the Love Collection. As you can see, I wanted to get a little creative with this card. I'm getting brave and experimenting with more mediums....attempting to expand my horizons. I love living in the country, but, unfortunately, it does not afford me the possibilities of attending workshops on mixed media. This is definitely something I will pursue when I'm retired, even if I have to travel to do it!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate it very much. Big Hugs, Christina

  17. LOL...I'm a country girl too, Christina. So I know exactly what you're talking about. You should check out Marti Wills Mixed Media classes on Suzanne Dean's CMC classroom site. Might be worth a look as it is all on video.
    I just love your Tilda card. She looks fabulous. A truly special card for a lucky Valentine.

  42. Your card is beautifully done Christina! Why am I always the last one on the block to see it!!!! You will love mixed media - I live back in the country too and get all my stuff on line. Lots of videos and even ones you can purchase that are moderately prices. When you get into it more, you will have a blast!
