And again tis grey..but this time with love ;)

Hola !!
Its pleasant again..we are back on track.. :P
What exactly happened to shift me off track ?? 
In extremely simple manner ...sans the melodrama *My cherished Macbook Pro broke its LCD on its all its 9 months of life* 
I guess it fell in love with me and when you fall in love you tend to do everything the other does.. :)
My Mac decided to mimic my self-destruction mode..
 The morning it happened I was in tears...after visiting the service station ..I was found with my face hidden under the quilt in the absence of sand ( Somehow an Ostrich is way too feeble to be compared with my structure :D ) by a friend.. :P
Yes its back !! *touchwood* 
All because of my Dad's genius... :)
But ..what made it a curious case of my life the range of similar verdicts given by friends and family members when I broke the news to them .. ( Don't include my parents because they are the descendents of a certain planet where everything has a scientific basis...everything can be explained)
* I was taken by an evil eye..I was its target for the past one year or so.. *
Behold still happens in our very Indian ...very educated society !! 
We have a way of keeping our faith, supernatural powers and science together :P
 Its just bad news and tragedies all around..and It has to be put on someone who lurks in some distant corner of my life, gratifying itself and feeding on my pain and sadness ..
Hence started rounds of holy smoke and chilli vapors in my hostel room, infecting me with fits of laughter and sneezes...the fake 'seers' did not spare the MAC either citing its ill health, a case of green eyed peers !!
Its back and it will be adorned with a black kohl dot if I don't save it from the well-wishers :D
Enough of my daily blather ..lets hear it from you as well ..
No Red, No Pink and No <3 *hearts* on your valentine themed creations ..that is our dare !
I found it way too challenging :P check the pic below
The card is hand cut..I drew the scallops and then cut around the pattern ( thats how we all do :P , where was the need to tell you that ?)

( uhh..yes ..I am now the proud owner of 11 Tilda stamps ..Thanks to Lightbox Creative Store :D and thanks to Pooja Parate ..thanks buddy !!)
 The paper behind Tilda's hair is not red or pink ( damn the contrast) its brown..the pic below may be closer to the reality .. ! :S

 She looks like a conniving cupid to me :) ..
Please spare me for the pathetic job at coloring the Tilda.. Tilda experts world over, would be suicidal after seeing the shabby shading but consider me for my amateur attempts..and  for the fact that the paper on which I stamped her and colored her ..had texture..thereby making it difficult for me to blend !! :(    
I used stickles and Itsy Bitsy glitter flowers to embellish the card ..and also some SIMBALION white marker faux stitching ..
I hope you like my first Tilda and the card is hopefully inspiring enough for all you BGC aspirants :D
