Now it's time for my
Pick Of The Week
(Perfect card after last night's experience...
Woke up and thought there was a poltergeist in my bedroom.  Bed was shaking when my daughter came in and said the house was shaking.  Been through many a tornado, but never an earthquake. Wishing and hoping that all in Oklahoma who experienced the actual epicenter are well and didn't experience too much damage.  The second in two days for them. :(  
So, this card is perfect for well wishes...
This beautiful card is brought to you by

Friends Bring Umbrellas
I designed this sentiment to match the Tildas'.  
I attempted to watercolor this copic Tilda,
Ummmm, jury is still out on this one, but since it's my first time trying, I'm pretty pleased with it.  Will keep practicing though.

Colored this Tilda with Copics as well, but wanted her bright and shiny with hints of glossy accents on her boots, coat pocket and umbrella.
The image in the window is a picture from the internet when I googled 'storms.'
Well, that's all for me on this post.
Thanks for stopping in and don't forget,
Make It Monday is always Anything Goes,
so hop over and see the INCREDIBLE creations from the DT's and awe us with your AMAZING talent and creativity!

Happy Stamping and Have a Fabulous Day

Sorry I am late in commenting Lisa, My computer is running a little slow......The Govt has been upgrading the broadband wires, supposedly to make it quicker, but I am having some problems; there is irony in there somewhere!
This looks a very interesting shaped card, is it an easel card by chance? I am loving your scene and your storm out the window is priceless, the dimension you have obtained is ingenious.
I have a daughter who is a graduate in Fine Arts Lisa and her preferred medium is watercolours, and what I see here having some insight through her, is worthy in any-ones eyes, so do not judge yourself too harshly my friend.
I have a problem with Tilda, I don't like that there is no mouth and that is why I do not have any of the stamps, but, it does not mean I do not like your card, this piece is wonderful, and I can see any little girl will absolutely love it.
Glad to hear you are okay re the shake!

Dawn said...

Wow - your card is amazing! Your colouring is gorgeous, don't give up on the watercolouring - it looks wonderful. Beautiful scene with all the details and your sentiment is perfect.

Hugs, Dawn

Wow stunning creation. Seen it on MIM. Carolxx

Margaret said...

This is so awesome! Leave it to you to do an internet search to put an actual storm in your card!! Your watercoloring looks fabulous! Glad you made it ok through your first earthquake. We've had a few really small ones before, but can't imagine what it's like for those who are literally picking up the pieces.

Unknown said...

Cool card and I think you did a great job coloring the Tilda's! It is a neat card with lots of goodies to enjoy and love the internet picture.
Glad you guys are okay and hopefully there's no damage to your home.

Ann English said...

This is a work of art-not merely a card. How do ever decide to part with something like this!!! Gorgeous!

Shirley said...

A really beautiful card! About the quake....I lived in Reno, NV, all my life until 8 years ago and we had quakes as a regular thing thoughout my life. Not much damage, even when we had a 6.0. However, when I moved here, to Kannapolis, NC, and they talk about tornadoes, yikes, I'm a chicken. LOLOL I do hope no one in your area was harmed.
