Under the Weather

Last Friday was the Twisted Sister Challenge and yes, you guessed it - I am late!  Our lovely Twisted Sister Phyllis (aka Tater) has challenged us to make a card and have rain on it somewhere - not so easy Tater!! 

I remembered I had this image from my friend Melinda (aka Melinda 80) who is affectionately known as the 'Queen of Magnolia's' by those who know her!!  Thanks Mel for these images, it has been ages since I coloured one but I have had so much fun doing it!

Now, I have to say that Tater is known for her dislike of PINK - so just for you my friend I have not used pink at all, a touch of red, but no pink - I am hoping this helps me with the being late factor!!

Tilda is coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, cut out and popped up on foam dots on some DP which has been distressed and layered onto navy CS.  The main DP is part of a RAK from another Twister Sister - Darla Ryan has been distressed and attached to white CS.  I have added some gorgeous green ribbon (also from Melinda) and some double stitched ribbon.

This photo shows you the dimension more clearly and also the paper piercing of the light argyle, which happened as I needed something to balance the image!  The cloud is also a Magnolia image and has had Kindy Glitz added as has the raindrops.  The sentiment is also popped up on a foam dot with light chalking.

So girls - I am sorry I am late - is this when I QUIETLY mention that I am behind with the last two weeks challenges - oops - hopefully I will catch up!!

Thank for visiting with me today, I hope you are enjoying time with friends and family while remembering what Easter is all about.   Thank you for your lovely comments - you know I love to see that you have been!!  God bless you!


  1. Wow this was beautiful!!! Love your colouring and the lovely colours :-)
    Great image, and cozy rain.
    Love the feel of the card, makes me feel the smell of rain in the woods on a lovely rainy day.
    My daughter actually calls herself a "raingirl", because she loves being out in the rain.
    Have a great week!


  2. Linda, another beautiful creation. Gorgeous coloring and I just adore that Tilda image complete with her red wellies! You always do such an outstanding job no matter what you make! Love it!

  4. What a fanastic card - I love your colouring!!!!! I wish we would get some rain here so it would clean things up from winter.

  5. Hi Linda!

    This might come as a shock to you, but I am not a Magnoliagirl. *LOL*

    But I do like that you have managed to avoid beeing overly cute - even with a Magnolia stamp. The coloring is perfect as always, and I love the rough DP and the ribbon at the bottom.

    I hope the Twisted Sisters forgive you for beeing late ;o) (How can anyone not forgive you? you are so sweet I am sure you can get away with just about anything *LOL*


  6. Oh how precious Linda...I just love your Tilda. Psst, don't tell anyone, but I think I am becoming a Tilda fan!!! I love that you colored this with chalk, most color them with copics, but this is gorgeous. Sweet as can be!!

    Bear Hugs,
    Carol :o}
