Framed!!!

I've had a pretty good week, crafting wise! I spent an entire day getting the children's Valentines ready for next Tuesday. I even got quite creative this year and made little treat boxes and book marks. Nothing too fabulous, but better than those generic punch out Valentines cards.

While I got busy coloring a different image, which in the end didn't fit with my dp's I decided I needed to go in a completely different direction.

At Christmas I received this beautiful frame as a gift in a card from a wonderful online friend overseas! I thought it was so lovely that I wasn't sure I wanted to use it on a card at all. But I finally broke open the package and the frame was just perfect for this darling Tilda from the Sweet Crazy Love collection at Magnolia-licious. Ahhhh! What a pity! She is no longer available, but I'm sure Diana will have her back in stock soon. This particular collection has been wildly popular and there are very few images left. She is called "Love Letter Tilda".

So without further ado, here is my card...



Here is a close up of this red haired beauty...


Some artistic views...


Here is a very side view to show the depth of the frame...


Another side view...



The inside upper panel...



The salutation panel...



I did keep track of the Copics I used by it must have found it's way into the trash and out for pick up today! Bummer! Ah well, I'll try not to be so tidy next time. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and get lots of crafting done...

Blessings and hugs,
Barb

  18. Hi Barb!
    Your card is adorable. I love those papers and the coloring of Tilda is super duper. Hmmmmmm....I wonder if the same nice person that gave that frame to you was the one who gave me a frame similar. I was saving mine too but may use it for a friend who is turning 70.
