As you know Donna has combined two of the Challenge Blogs into one, and the 1st challenge set in this new Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge blog is a lovely sketch set by Jayjay! This is one lovely sketch that tempts you right away to try it out, at least it had that effect on me! :) But it took me 3 days to finish this card.. bit by bit. 1st I drew an image of Tilda with the balloons, but after I finished it and embellished the image with doodles etc.. I figured out that it was too tall to fit the sketch!
Anyway i put it away to use it another time. then I had this Tilda on a framed rectangle, and as I was sponging the outer sides I managed to do quite some blotches, which I didn't like at all!! So I cut around it! I think it worked well after all!! Now, before I uploaded the post I took the photos and edited them. When all was set to be uploaded, I noticed that I had forgotten to colour the wings!!! Oh my dear!! Off to remedy!!
... Now that's better!! Here you go!! I think Tilda is shaking her head... is she??! lol I must be off to bed I think! :) Anyway.. I hope you like it!

I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
