Tilda for a dear Friend

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all having a good day,  my day has been wonderful!!!  some of you know that I've been struggling with my crafting now for the last 6 months, I had a very dense cataract in my left eye which left me with no vision what so ever but it got worse because the right eye started to form a cataract as well!!!  talk about lucky white heather!!!! lol 

I also took possession of my new Quashkai car in Sept and hadn't even sat behind the wheel because of my condition.  Well last Sunday I went into hospital to have a new lens put into my left eye and this morning I drove my car for the very first time.  It was FANTASTIC.  I can now see clearly enough to colour my images in a quarter of the time.  What a wonderful Christmas gift this has been for me.

Anyhoo!!!  I just wanted to let you all know that I'm a very happy girl indeed.

My card has been made for three of my favourite challenge blogs using this sweet Tilda Wrapped stamp. Coloured with Pro Markers and Flex Markers.  The full recipe for my card is below this post with links.

The challenges I am entering are:

TOMIC Challenge:  Would like to see snowflakes with a Symphony of Purple

Wild Orchid Craft Challenge:  Would like to see a Christmas Friendship project.

Simon Says Stamps Challenge:  Are having a game of BINGO I've chosen the top line of Ribbon/twine  Gems Sparkle/glitter.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I send you all a huge hug and hope you have a wonderful day
