Tilda in Black and White

Hi all first may I thank you with all my heart for your concern for Polo, I am one very happy lady as I think the new tablets the Vet gave me for Po are beginning to work, thank the Lord.
I actually managed to make a card last night for some challenges, I am so behind with making Christmas cards that I have been very naughty and bought some, that is the first time in several years that I have done such a thing. 
Here is the card that I made which I would like to enter into the following challenges:

For my card I have used an 8x8 white pearlescent card base, the papers are Bearlymine Extreme Vol 3, I have used one of my beloved Tilda images from last Christmas and coloured her with Copics. all papers and image have been mounted onto black card. 
I added some silver sparkly snowflakes, black and white gems, lace, pink metallic elastic twine and bow. 
The above picture shows a sideways view of the card. 
The letters of 'Joy' I stamped with black momento ink, I then stamped a snowflake onto the letters cut them out and glazed them with Glossy Accents.

Below is a picture of my handsome boy Polo, I took this yesterday and he is able to stand now which is such a huge relief and my prayers have been answered. 
I have started to do my commenting but it will take a few days to catch up but I am so enjoying seeing your beautiful creations, they are giving me some much needed inspiration, I have missed you all and I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends, thank you all so much.
Hugs to all see you a little later.

Hi all today is not only the 1st December but also the start of our new weekly challenge at
the theme this week is to use 
for my DT card I have used the Santa image available from
I certainly piled on the sparkle with this one, the papers are from Bearlymine, I have highlighted the centres of the snowflakes and swirls with silver glitter, I also used the glitter for Santa's fur bits, I have mounted the papers onto black card, the image I coloured with Copics then cut out and used silicone to 3'd him, I then added some black ribbon and a sentiment which I distressed with TH ink.
This card is actually winging it's way across the miles as we speak.
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I do hope that you like my card and that you will come join our challenge this week at
I want to thank each and every one of you with all my heart, that left me messages about my little dog Polo, I took him to the Vets who suggested that I put him on some new tablets to see if they would help.
This was a reprieve for me and I feel that I am a bit of a coward but I desperately wanted to keep my Po with me.  I have until a week today to see if there is any improvement. 
You have all been so kind and understanding, you will never know just how much you mean to me, the support you have shown is truly wonderful and I thank you so very, very much.
I have been doing some of my DT commenting but I will be visiting you all it just might take a day or two to catch up so please be patient with me, lol.
Love & Hugs to all.

Hi all today the challenge at 
is to make a 
Christmas Card for Man or Boy
the sponsor is
Here is my GDT card
I decided to try for a monochromatic card, the image is actually a stamped one from Polka Doodles, I have coloured him with Copics and distressed the edges of the oval.  The papers are a mixture, I added a sentiment, self adhesive corners, snowflakes with gold gems as their centres, gold and silver ribbon and finally a huge snowflake that I found in my stash, I distressed it with TH Vintage Photo then sprayed the whole snowflake with Crafters Companion Iridescent glitter spray, I added a vintage style central sticker, copper tinsel like thread and gold gems.
I hope that you will join the challenge at
Tuesday Throwdown
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the DT, especially DAVI, at Tuesday Throwdown for inviting me to be their GDT for November, their support and friendship shown was exceptional, thank you girls so much, I really enjoyed myself.

Thank you for your visit, hugs to all.

Painful Times

Hi all I wanted to let you know why I have not been posting anything other than my DT work.  
My little dog Polo is not good, he has been suffering for quite a while with his back legs but now his front ones are also affected, which means that he is practically unable to walk.
His mind and looks are just the same, he looks no older, his eyes are bright and alert, so is his mind but his body is being taken over by the age process. 
He is now 16 1/2 yrs of age and I may have to let him go very soon.  It is breaking my heart, I have no will to create any cards or do crafting of any sorts. To be truthful nothing else matters to me at the moment than my Polo, I have battled in my mind and heart, I don't want to let him go, I expect a miracle to happen and that he will be ok but somehow deep down I know that there will be no miracle.
I know that some of my friends in blog land have recently lost their own beloved animals and I know that some of you will understand how I am feeling at this time.
I will be scheduling my DT work and hopefully comment as and when I can.
I will say bye for now, hugs to all.,
