Autumn toned Tilda... why?

Yes Why? indeed!! It's Summer down here in the island land of Australia - so why on earth was I feeling the Autumn gloom???
It's been unseasonably cold this week, typical really. As my poor little cherubs have began their annual 2 week intensive swimming lessons, it's always cold for at least a few days each year, hopefully it'll just continue to get warmer and warmer...

Anyways, I hope you've all recovered from the crazy that can come with Christmas and the New Year. We're back to 'normal' around here, DH is back at work, as mentioned the kids now have 2 weeks of swimming, which is awesome as it gives them something to look forward to during the 6 weeks holidays that we have over here, and the visiting family have all left us. Back to normal....

So, on that normal note, lets get back into card-making!!

Image: Magnolia
Sentiment: Amy R
Papers: Studio HG Meadow Paper Pack
Misc Pearls
1cm Sheer Ribbon {Available Bizzy Becs}
Colouring {Copic & Touch Twin}
C - E02, E21, E51, E37, R20, BG10, BG01, G00
TT - WG .05,2,4,6, 91, 92

If any of you are wondering.. I purposely put the strips of paper at either end at opposites.. make sense? :) I really enjoyed colouring these colours... though poor Tilda's looking a little too tanned and almost matching with her jumper!! hehe... lighter skin tones next time! Really must buy new light E Copics!! Actually.. I was considering getting the Promarkers skin set.. any thought on that idea??
Take care fellow bloggers x

Lovely card Loz…I like how the background paper adds to the windswept look. It has been very warm up here and if your kids were here they would be keen to go swimming. :-) Although there is rain on the horizon our daughter who her 18th party organised for Saturday is hoping it doesn't arrive until Sunday.

Fab card Loz, love the colours :-) It's been beautiful here, but we're forecast 44C tomorrow... TOO hot! Our "Grandtwinnies" are starting swimming lessons next week, they're nine months old already! Have a great 2014, Donna xx
