Snowplaying Tilda


My girls loved to ice skate when they were young. A dear friend of ours used to work at a local college in their ice arena and every now and then, the girls would be able to sneak in and skate. Can you imagine the dreams those girls had as they were gliding along that cold arena? Tiff was the big skater and Nichole has always loved ballet. So this Tilda is perfect for me and my girls!

My dear friend Summer from Roses on Paper sent me some of these to play with. Summer, you so rock! I colored her with copics and used my spica glitter pen and stickles on her dress and her bow I cut her out with my nestabilities and popped her up on the snowflakes that I found at our local Dollar Store. The ribbon is from American Craft and the background paper is Joyful Twinkling from K & I Memories, I think, and after running my paper through the cuttlebug with the snowflake folder, I ran some pink dew drop ink over the embossed snowflakes. I loved working on her.

While I despise the snow, I love how children are in the snow. Enjoy!
