Tilda with Bundle

First, thanks everyone for your well wishes on my back. Today is the third day after having my epidural and things continue to feel good. I get up and walk around a lot, not usually sitting for more than 30 minutes to try and keep things limber. Sleeping is the hardest part because when I sleep I don’t move making mornings a little stiff. I still do not have the feeling in my index and middle finger on my right hand but if everything stays the way it is I can live with that. Gonna talk to the Doc on Tuesday to see if I can go back to work and also if I can follow up with a Chiropractor I used to see. If he says yes to both accounts then I might be able to get the feeling back in my fingers.

OK, so the reason you came here was to see Tilda with Bundle. I made this card for a co-worker that is moving away and I wanted her to know that she would be missed, she is an important part of our company (as well as every other employee there).

Here she is, finally, right? I used my LAST sheet of Kraft paper …. boy do I love this stuff!! The list of supplies used is as follows:

002 copy (Small)

Here is a close up of Tilda. I have found that when I want a more vintage type look it works much better using Cryogen.  I like the way that E13 works on the Cryogen. I tried it on the Copic X-press but it didn’t seem to blend well but Copic X-press works great on none vintage ….. hmmm, maybe I just needed to clean the tips of my pens.

003 copy (Small)

A close up of the flowers above and a close up of the sentiment below.

004 copy (Small)

And the back shot of the card. I love this saying and use it on the back of my cards. It is available in SSD Beaded Circles stamp set.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Hi Stephanie, I am so happy to find you. You left a comment on my blog awhile back for Dangling Sea Tilda, so I had been wanting to find your blog. Your profile doesn't show your personal blog address(at least I didn't see it) so I found you through one of the DT blogs. Your Tilda card is so cute. Hugs

Brigitte said...
