Tilda, La tête dans les étoiles... Tilda, sitting on a star!

Bon après-midi à vous toutes,
Good afternoon to all, ( scroll down for english version)

Quelle journée! Je voulais à tout prix terminer cette carte pour le défi de Just Magnolia Challenge Blog, j'adore le sketch de Bev, et j'avais une idée bien précise de cette carte. En quelques mots: tout est allé de travers, je vous épargne les détails, sauf un seul: il y a des mises-à-jour qui se sont installées à l'ouverture de mon ordinateur hier, et qui ont fait planté le tout!  Une chance que mon Pierre sait quoi faire dans ces cas, sauf qu'il lui a fallu la journée pour trouver le bobo, et l'utilisation des 2 ordinateurs. Il ne me restait  que quelques minutes pour placer ma carte sur le site, et je suis arrivée trop tard.
En ce qui concerne Tilda, bien comme vous le voyez sur la carte, elle est bien assise dans les étoiles. Je la comprends très bien de vouloir rester là, lorsque je stresse pour rencontrer un délai et que tout va de travers, je fonctionne sur un pilote automatique, et ma patience a ses limites. Ce qui nuit grandement à notre "communication": j'avais beau avoir une idée de ma carte, j'ai gâché mes coupes et j'ai dû tout recommencer, puis j'ai mis de l'encre sur mon ruban blanc... Et enfin, lorsque j'ai pris des photos, aucune n'étaient satisfaisantes, les brillants et le flash, c'est pas extra. Malgré la lumière, il déclenche quand même. Et pour finir le tout, j'ai perdu le logiciel qui lit mes photos et photoshop! C'est à suivre.

Je voudrais, en quelques mots, exprimer ma gratitude à vous toutes qui me lisiez, et qui prenez le temps de commenter. J'ai, effectivement, une relation tout à fait spéciale avec Tilda, qui a fait épanouir ma créativité. Cependant, toute seule à ma table, sans personne pour partager mes créations, je serais bien triste et je ne pourrais apprendre de vous, que je rencontre et visite aussi.
 Voilà sans plus tarder, ma petite carte, dont je suis très fière, dans les circonstances, elle est réussie.

What a day it has been! I wanted to finish this card for Just Magnolia Challenge blog, which closes in an hour ( I thought so)... because when I finished posting, it was too late! I love Bev's sketch and had a definite idea of what I wanted to do with it. The whole proceeding went wrong from A to Z.  Yesterday, when I opened my computer, an automatic up-grade installed itself, the computer wouldn't restart! In these moments, Pierre answers my emergencies, he spent the whole day trying to figure out what went wrong.  This morning, I had a chance to sit down and make my card, but every thing went wrong. I took wrong measures and had to start all over, put ink on my white ribbon etc. Then, after I could not take a proper photography, I realized that Photoshop did not answer to my call, neither was I able to access to my camera!
 My stress  had reasons of Tilda! She definetly wanted to stay away! She sat on her star and sending good vibes at me, my radars did not catch any of it, and I messed up! Anyways, I still have time for Magnolia Down under,  under the circumstances, I am very happy with the results.

I would like to add how grateful I am to all of you who take time to read my stories and share comments. I do spend exquisite moments with Tilda, who brought my creativity to bloom unexpectedly, but alone at my craft table with no one to share these creations, I would be pretty sad, and would not learn from all of you that I get to know and visit...

Unfortunately, the link closed just a few minutes ago: it is now 15:20 in Montreal, but 20:20 in UK. I shall put my-self a little clock adjusted to UK time.!!!

Danielle!
Your card is magnificent! Tilda is beautifully coloured and I love the bling of the large star behind her :o) Your ribbon is wonderful and so is the way you have used your paper to do the layout.
I am sad you missed one deadline - you had a terrible day :o( Hope you do well on the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - good luck!
Hugs, Candy

Danielle, I love your card! I can certainly relate...nothing has been going right for me either. My days off have not been productive.
I started two Christmas cards and didn't get either of them finished. Maybe tomorrow.......
Love your star with the blue glitter and your beautifully colored Tilda!

Beautiful! I love the star and all it's glitter. The same thing happened to me my first time I wanted to post to Just Magnolia too. I always forget blogging is World wide! LOL!!

It is really to bad you couldn't enter your Tilda she is awesome! Love the blue on her and on the star. I feel your pain with computers. I up-graded my iPhoto to only have it disappear and of course I loose anything I've done to pictures. Had to make a quick trip to the Apple store and spent today up-grading for 7 hours to find it didn't fix the problem!!!! Another 2 hour trip to the Apple store this weekend. Grrrrrr

Such a pretty card Danielle, The blue star is beautiful and Tilda looks gorgeous. Have you thought about adding some clocks to your blog with the time zones of the challenges you enter the most? Maybe that would help.
