Simon Says ...."Thinking of You"

Hi everybody and thank you for coming to visit my wee spot in blogland. I am so glad you popped by. I hope you find something to make your visit worthwhile. I haven't had a very good day today healthwise and haven't managed my usual round of visits to the blogs I follow, I promise to catch up tomorrow.
Fortunately a few days ago I made this card for Simon Says where the theme was "Thinking of You". I tend to post my entries for challenges a couple of days before the deadline although I make them when the challenge is published. Well last Wednesday/Thursday through the night I just could not sleep. I had made a couple of attempts at colouring this new Tilda (bought by my DIL Sarah at the NEC for me) during the day and both had ended up in the bin so I decided at 02:15am that I was as well trying again rather than tossing and turning. Hubby sleeps the sleep of the dead anyway so it wasn't going to disturb him. Well by 04:15am the whole card was done and dusted and I felt great. That's the great thing about this hobby - you can do it any time, day or night. I really enjoyed doing it and felt so much better for not having wasted time trying to sleep.
The stamp is Magnolia's "Tilda with Mistletoe" coloured using my trusty Copic Ciaos. I think she looks as though she is wishing that Edwin was there to get the benefit of the mistletoe and she is no doubt thinking about him. The paper is Winter Wonderland (Frosty) from Crafts House and the flowers are homemade. The ribbon and other bits and pieces are from my stash.
I hope you like this card enough to take the time and trouble to leave a comment for me. I really enjoy reading them. Do have a creative day and go carefully.
Hugs,
Fiona x
