Hi all, I am afraid I have not been around for a few days due to ill health, I had to visit the doctor yesterday for some more antibiotics and was sent to the hospital for a chest X Ray. I have caught up with most of my blogging friends who left me comments also with my DT commenting, unfortunately I was more than half way through when the robot thingy came to life again, which was ok to start off with but then the pictures appeared and that was it, I could not leave any more comments so please accept my apologises, I hope that Blogger/Google sort themselves out pretty soon.
Anyway I have a card to share with you today featuring one of my beloved Tilda stamps she is called 'Silent Night Tilda', I have coloured her with a mixture of both Graph It Markers and Copics, I used an 8" x 8" circular scalloped card then mounted some Christmas card circles that were cut from my Spellbinders Grand Dies, the image was die cut with a Tattered Lace Fancy Edge die, other dies used were the Poinsettia, branch, white sprays, bells, snowflake and tree.  I added lots of sparkle and some blue glass beads in a bottle finally a sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Oooooh so love this one Lorraine, the colour, the image, your colouring, all fabulous, a real smasher!!
So sorry to hear that you are still having health problems, I do hope this batch of antibiotics do the trick.
I'm having problems with blogger too, it's ok when i first start to comment but then it starts with the pictures to choose from popping up, grrr it drives me mad, do you think it's a glitch that they'll put right or this is how blogging is going to be from now on? wish I knew what was happening.
Take care of yourself my friend and get well soon.

Donna Ellis said...

Beautiful round card, Lorraine! She is adorable in your trademark GORGEOUS coloring and shading. So sorry to hear that blogger is being unkind to you STILL. So frustrating! Many of us seem to be experiencing problems. It may be because of the https changes Google is implementing.

Lorraine, I am even sorrier to hear how tenacious this upper respiratory infection is being. Hopefully the chest x-ray is negative, and you are on the road to good health. Sending good thoughts and healthy vibes your way. Hugs, de
