My Lovely Friends,

It's coming that time of the year!

Can you believe it's  so close, frightening lol,

I am in the mood for doing Christmas cards as these new Magnolia stamps are so yummy, this one is my favourite, I can't stop using her,
I've found out I like tearing my paper edges, so much fun to do then I ink them with my distress inks, also saves having to use lots of cardstock so the cards not so bulky,
my papers are a mix of Magnolia and Tim Holtz and my image is coloured with copics,
I've used some liquid applique for the snow, can't belive it still works as I've had it years!! and I do mean years lol,
The trees are from a large Magnolia stamp which has three trees on, I just stamped off two of the single small tree, coloured them cut them out and layered them on with pin flair glue,
A closer look of Tilda, isn't she so cute!!
my snow flakes! are done with my ice white Viva pearl pen I have deliberately squashed them to look more like snow falling, well hopefully they do anyway lol,
the large snowflake is a quickcutz die, again I've had for years, the centres are for flower centres really but they went with my colour scheme and thought they went ok as the centre for my snowflake!
my cardstock edges have been distressed with my distress tool too,

Magnolia Down Under ~ Eulanda's fab sketch
Creatalicious ~ Distress your edges
The Pretty little ribbon ~ Anything goes

I will look for more later,

 Other items used,
Spellbinders ~ petite  ovals nestie 
Sewing machine
Ribbon ~ gift
Vintage photo ~ Distress ink
Magnolia Doo Hickey ~ Fence die

hope you likey,
got the hairdresser tonight so will catch up with you as soon as possible,
have fun!
