My Lovely Friends,

Christmas is coming,

I want to scream very loudly!!!
On Sunday we called BT yet again and was told by an Indian man in India that he would send out an engineer today, well he came and because my fault is intermittent and it's working fine this morning he's gone away again with out doing anything! 

Anyway deep breaths, onto my creation lol,
I'm entering this into
 Magnolia Down Under ~ Make your own Embellishments,
Just Magnolia ~ Anything goes,
Sir Stampalot ~ Christmas Traditions,
I made this as a decoration for the table or some where and I know Tilda shouldn't really be looking and Santas not exactly in red,  but hey it is for Christmas and you should be able to get away with any thing then lol, only guess who didn't tell the kids that he he,
The window is made from one of  the winter scenes and the lamp post stamps, coloured and put behind acetate after being cut out of the main paper (Wallpaper) using a nestie to make a window effect then I've used A Doo Hickey die for a pelmet,
The bed is made from an old perscription box, covered in Magnolia paper the using a Martha Stewart Lattice punch I created two Headboards, then using a different paper and using some lace made a throw over for the bed and a pillow,
Behind Santa is a doily with a stool on to create a rug effect, the flowers are created with Marianne Dies using Magnolia paper too,
The images are coloured with Copics and I've added tags on the back of them so they stand up right,

For the window sill I've stamped the fir branch cut it out, raised it on 3d stickers added the hearts again on 3D foam to create a garland, well in theory anyway lol,
Finally it's tweaked her and there with some glitter, a pearl brad and L-EM puched leaves,
The tag can be removed as an extra too,

Phew I hope you like it because it took me ages, and I certainly made my own embellishments lol,
I've to monitor my computer yet again now for today and the lovely man from India will call again to see what's happening, I think my throat will be very sore lol,
