Tilda with Bird, Matching Tote, and WINNERS!!


Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope your life is going much better than mine these days!!! It is well in the low teens here in these temperate mountains and of all things, my heating system stopped working and they cannot replace it until next Saturday...can you imagine??? So I am keeping the gas fireplace at full steam ahead and have several small heaters so I am not freezing to death YET!!!!! But this will be a quick posting since my computer room is CHILLY!!!!!!!

I had long ago promised Suzan that I would make her a tote using her favorite Maggie, Tilda With Bird in Hand and made this card to go with her tote!! I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all matting and the DP is all from the Creamotion Victorian Romance "Mixed" collection...I just love those papers, too!! All panels are machine stitched and are double matted with the red and navy CS. Added a bit of trim which is the same on the tote and colored Tilda with Copics, a touch of Spica, and a bit of Diamond Stickles on her wings.

This is the matching set:

And a better picture of the tote which is painted in thinned acrylics:


Hope you like it, Suzan!!!

The WINNERS of the 3 spa gift bags are:

Your stitching is perfect! I am so impressed, I gave up sewing on cards LOL! Anyway it is so pretty and I just love the tote! Did you seal the image of Tilda besides using the acrylic paint? Just curious :) How can she not love it!!

What an adorable project. I'm sure Suzan will love it.

We've lived in rentals where every Winter the furnace would quit. So I understand. Right now it's -29 degrees here so it's cold even with a working furnace. Stay warm.

Jessica G. said...

Wow -- Suzan's tote bag is amazing; she's one lucky gal!

Gorgeous DPs on your card, too. I haven't heard of that line before but you can be sure I'll be looking for it now! The pom pom fringe is just too fun and really pulls out the colors in Tilda's adorable outfit!!

JoAnn said...

I love the tote!!! Is it possible to get a tutorial on this tote? I would love to find out how you did this, it is beautiful.

Anki said...

It's just amazing my friend! You're super-duper! Kramis - Anki

Eulanda said...

Wow Jacque!! Amazing stuff!! However do you send your cards? Or soes that even cross your mind when making a card. I made one once that I had to escort over to my friends house because if I put it in an envelope, I would have squished the embellishments. LOL!!

Martha said...

Jacque, I've been away from my computer awhile and just saw this wonderful Tilda with the little bird. Fantastic card and tote! Snch a sweet gift. Is the Tilda an older one or a new one...I'd like to have it or at least would you share some of the images of it, please? My little grand daughters would love the bird and the skirt. LOL They are really into skirts at 3 and 4. Please keep warm and take care. It isn't fun having heaters go out. I know. we live in MN and that happened to us twice and in the winter too. God bless you, Martha
