My Lovely Friends,

Oh Christmas Tree!

Well as you already know I've got Lumbago, so seeing as I can't do much except wait till it gets better I thought I'd do another Christmas card for my stash lol,
I was getting distinct withdrawal symptoms from lack of Tildas, as the person who ordered my commissioned cards didn't really do Tilda, 

I've followed the sketch over at Magnolia Down Under and would have loved to sew my papers but there is no way I could lift my machine at the moment so they are just distressed instead,
I stamped the scene, cut it out, coloured it with my Copics, the snow effect is a mixture of Glamour Dust and on the trees, roofs, and mounds at the side of the path I've used Liquid Applique, the tree on the left has been stamped coloured then I've stamped some more branches one for each layer, coloured them , cut them out, shaped them added Liquid Applique then layered them onto the stamped tree with Pin Flair glue, these I've then attached to the edge of the circle when the glue dried,
Tilda is also coloured with Copics, given the Glamour dust treatment, cut out and layered on to the card again with Pinflair glue,

The finishing touches are,
Nestie scalloped circle die,
LOTV Sentiment stamp,
Quickcutz corner die,
Pearls, ribbon, heart pins from stash,
Papermania cardstock,
I'm entering this into Magnolia Down Under, there may be more challenges out there that this would go into but my backs had enough, so after I've up loaded this I'm  off to rest it,
Edited to add,
A spoon full of Sugar challenge ~ Anything goes,
Papertake weekly ~ Cut it out,
Everybody Art ~ Use shapes
Magnolia stamp lovers ~ punch it up

Hope your all ok,

Another beautiful crafty creation - love the scene you created, your sky is quite lifelike. Take it easy with your back - you have my sympathy with the pain (I had a back op 11 years ago and still have slipping discs) the weather doesn't help does it?
Take care, hugs Sarah x
