Hope your New Year is just "Peachy!!"

Hi friends, I sure hope everyone is enjoying the holiday break and looking forward to ringing in a New Year! At our house, tonight will be a quiet one, we just returned from our place in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, a mountain resort. All I wanted to do this evening was stamp, and then in the middle of assembling my card, our daughter called and asked to take my camera for the evening!! What, my prized possession that I use to take pictures of my cards for challenges?? I got a lot of glue on my fingers hurrying this card forgive me if the glue isn't dry. But I had a 1/2 hour warning and was scurrying to get this done! I wonder if our kids know the sacrifices we make for them!!
Anyway, this card was made for Magnolia's challenge for the is on my sidebar if you would like to participate. The challenge was a sketch, and there were 5 circles on the side. Well, I had this new PTI sentiment set,. and was thrilled to find a "Peach" in fits so well, and sentiments rarely do that for me!! I used some new prima flowers I had.
The most challenging part of this was trying to color the peaches with my copics as I had no peach colored copics, but found with a little experimentation, the orange, yellow orange, and yellow worked, who'd a thought? That is one advantage to having a limited number of copics, I am forced to experiment a lot with layering different colors and usually I find success! I also used prisma pencils on Tilda's apron and highlighted with my signo white gel pen!!
Tilda and I thank you for coming by...have a safe and Happy New Year!!


  1. so glad you got home safely from Steambost....those are some twisty/high roads....must be challenging in the winter/snow.....enjoy your evening of quiet....that's what I shall be as well...quiet and staying out of the stamp cave as it is really frizzin today...hopefully will warm up is way too early to be this cold....

    I like the snowflake scene on your blog, too!
    Hubby and I are all snug in our homes tonight. We are waiting for Jess and his girlfriend to arrive, and we'll watch a movie, stuff our faces, and have a little bit of bubbly at midnight. Then, I'll probably crash.
    Traci, thank you for the gift of your friendship. I wish you many blessings in 2010 and a very Happy New Year!!

  5. Traci you always make the sweetest Tilda cards. This is sooo cute! Perfect embellishment for the peachy Tilda. And I'm glad you got the photo in before loaning out your camera.

You are a treasure.
