Another Tilda Comin' at Ya!!

Well, can I just say that I struggled with this one? I was going for the look of a room, but it seems like it needs more. BUT, I didn't want to gunk it up too much and lose the effect. Did that make sense? I used the paper, quote, and chipboard frame from the Cosmo Cricket deal at Tuesday Morning...yes, I was able to snag one. Who wouldn't want over 9000 pieces of stuff for $14.99???

Anyway, I loved the two images (rocking chair and the Tilda), so I wanted to do them justice by pairing them with something. My grosgrain ribbon serves as a chair rail for the room and separation of the wallpaper. And, as luck would have it, this is one of my favorite Thoreau quotes, so it was kismet!
I hope you all had a spectacular day. I was able to see my mom today. My parents live 12 hours away, but for two months in the winter, they stay in Myrtle Beach, SC, which is only about 3 1/2 hours away. Well, my mom is a quilter and she has made some quilting friends down South. They take a bus trip to Mary Jos in Gastonia, NC (an incredible fabric store like no other) every year, and we go and meet up with her for lunch and shopping (it's a half hour drive for us!). Meredith was so excited to see her Mimi! Today was fun, and I picked up some awesome ribbon and lace for future cards!

You did a great job on this card Nancy! It looks just like a little room with wainscotting and a chair rail. I love the little Tilda you put on the rocking chair. How wonderful for you to be able to see your mom today! It's so important to stay connected to those we love and cherish in our lives. Blessings...

I still want to catch up and stamp. I konw you are busy but I have lots of free time right now. So if you ever have time give me a call! :)
