Totally Tilda DT #77 Christmas Bingo Grid

 Totally Tilda are having a Christmas Bingo Grid Challenge this week and I loved it to bits. !!!!

A very good morning everyone.   Wow!! I can't believe that I was creating this card in 30 degree sunshine!!!!! last week.   Mind you I don't care when/where/how or why!!!   I love love love making Christmas cards/gifts/tags/alterable's etc etc.  Christmas/Winter is my favourite season ever!!!.   I know call me nuts!! but hey ho!  I just love it.  

Anyway, below you will see the Christmas Bingo Grid and all you need to do is choose either a line across/down or diagonally or be like me and just go for the Full House.  This sweet image is Tilda from the Mountain and she was released as part of the Christmas Story Collection 2012.  I've coloured her with Derwent pencils soft pencils and sansodor oil, for her skin tones I used one layer of Copic No. 41 as a base.  There are so many details on my card but you will find most of them with links at the bottom of my post.
