Yoga Tilda

I know i been kinda scarce, but you know what besides for blogging and crafting, i do have a real life and kids and home to run.  Then of course sometimes we all do things that are not good for us and they set us back.  I am one of those people that suffer from being an emotional cripple, when i go to pieces, my life somehow falls apart, and i kinda had the wind knocked out my sails, i wanted give up crafting and was not gonna be posting for a while till i could pick up the pieces of my heart and move on, but i decided that if i dont do it now, i am never gonna get back on the horse after being thrown, so here i am, looking to get brought down to size all over again.  Sucker for punishment!
I made this card for the challenge on WOC following their sketch, Papertake weekly where its a bingo selection of Gems, ribbon and blooms.  My delightful little Tilda was colored with copics and given a minimal ammount of stickles around the trim of her top.
I googled yoga and found that the "Om" symbol and blue stones, and the lotus flower are relative to their belief system so added those elements to my sentiment bit of my card.  The fabby new paper is from Kaisercraft, Miss Nelly collection and this one is her "laugh"

hope everyone is having a great week
hope to be back soon with more to share

  4. My dear heart...this is so beautifully colored! I'm sorry now that I didn't order this image because your card is so pretty it's making me envious! Love how you've done the flowers, and the OM symbol is fantastic to continue the theme of the card. Of course, you know that I love blue, so your papers and that delightful ribbon are right up my alley!

  15. Hi Paola
    Sorry to hear you're having a tough time - may I suggest picking up all those pieces of your heart and making a pretty mosaic to remind yourself how strong you are? Sending positive South African vibes to you all the way from the UK.
    You are so talented - simply love this card, probably more so because the Om sign means a great deal in my beliefs.
    Take care.
