something old something new

Hi guys, the lovely Chantal over at Time for Magnolia challenge asked me if I wanted to GDT for challenge #35, of course I said yes!! anyway the challenge is to use a Magnolia stamp that is at least 12 months old and a new one too,
As you can see I used a few more lol, the house is a birdhouse that I have painted with white acrylic paint first,

I then used a Magnolia Doo Hickey lace die for the roof edges at the front, the circle window at the top I filled round with a McGill pine branch punch and I layered them and added a mini Holding Tilda from an older collection,
All my images where coloured with my distress re-inkers,
at the front of the house below the following images were used,
The day before Christmas Edwin - Winter Wonderland collection (new)
In the snow ski Tilda - Winter Wonderland collection (new)
Show the way Rudolf - Winter Wonderland collection ( new)
Older collections
Joyful Tilda
I also used some of the Doobadoo paper art trees 472.948.012and the Joy crafts grass die 6002/0137 to finish the scene off,
The snowballs are made using liquid applique again!!!! lol
the poinsettia is a Magnolia  Doo Hickey die,
At one side of the house I used Pixie Tilda from an older collection too, I cut out A Doo Hickey spruce tree three times and layered them onto each other to give the tree depth,
The roof I made using another Doo Hickey die and paper from the MME vintage Christmas paper pad, you can just see the last strip in the picture,
This is the other side where I used a die cut sleigh, added some twine threaded with a couple of jingle bells and two more Doo Hickey trees leaving these flat to look more like they are in the background!
Front view again lol,
I wish to thanks Chantal and the girls for asking me to be a GDT, pop on over and see the other girls awesome creations too,
