Wish List sorted, HO HO HO!

Hi guys I'm back again with a just for fun project lol,

again it's a fairly long post so get a brew and sit comfortably lol,

any one would think Christmas was coming wouldn't they lol,
I have used Magnolia stamps for this project again and all are coloured with copics, the out of the snow text has been layered onto a large spellbinders snowflake die,
the die and card stock edges have been distressed with white acrylic paint and the magnolia tree has liquid applique added on the edges too,
The sides both have mock windows, done with a spellbinders die and acetate, the trees are again done the same way as the front and the fence has white acrylic paint on it too,

The roof is made using a Magnolia Doo Hickey die which I have cut a few strips of then I've layered them to finish it off,the gorgeous lace looks like hanging snow icicles, well to me anyway lol,
Santa Edwin is again coloured with copics and cut out then fixed to the chimney,

Close up of all the roof,

Did you guess it was another exploding box? see previous post, this time it's on a larger scale to fit in more elements lol,
again I didn't want my sides falling so I have added string to keep them semi upright,
again I've got my 3D tree, tutorial on my sidebar, chimney with real battery candle behind, unwrapped Tilda, Tilda's cat and  parcels, all in there ha ha,
close up of the tree with fairy tale Tilda on top, I have again threaded a small string with beads onto the tree for added detail,
can you spot mini Tilda with hearts in the picture frame on the wall behind,

Ha ha you can see it better on this picture lol,
the hook holding the picture up is a Tim Holtz idea-ology hitch fastener,

This is a better view of the flame and the bunting on the side walls, done with a Doo Hickey flag die and small hero arts letters,
I wanted this to be for at night too, so here a picture of it in the semi dark
and here when it's dark and she is sitting all cosy warming her bum! lol
I also cut out a square on the lid so that the light shone through when made back into a box lol,
hope you likey!!!!
