Christmas Tilda

Hiya! Hope you're all feeling better than I am - I'm up to my eyes in nasty cold and feel rotten. Managed to cheer myself up with a couple of hours in my craft corner this morning and I'm really pleased with the results. I've had a few new arrivals that I couldn't wait to test out - my circle nesties and some pearls from ebay. Very happy :-) This gorgeous Tilda was sent to me by Debs in a candy win and I've coloured her with promarkers and just a little glitter gel pen. The papers are from Papermania, as are the embossing folder and the holly leaves. There's a bit of glitter on her wings but it hasn't shown up very well on the piccies. I've also used a bit of sparkley ribbon I've taken from a gift box I got a couple of years ago :-)
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Totally Tilda - Traditional red and green Tilda Christmas
Sarah Hurley - Colouring
I'm just going to top up the paracetamol in my system before I go on the school run! Have a fab day.
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
