My Lovely Friends,

We wish you A Merry Christmas

Hi guys, It's time for our new challenge over at 
the theme is Christmas,
Here's my project, but you may want to grab a cuppa first as there's a few piccies!!

I've made my village scene using some of the MDF houses by DD, covered with Maja Design papers then my fabby hubby made me a base for them to fix onto,

I added some of the new softboard bricks here and there and some of the gorgeous Sweet Lilac lace in the windows, this I got from their shop in St Helens - Crafts4U2do,
I also used a few of the beautiful flowers and leaves from their online shop too, these i lightly added a little gesso too for a frosted look,

I used Modelling paste on the base of my village and layered it to look like snow, the tree is made using a La La Land crafts die which I cut out 4 times on double sided paper , i used my ScorPal to crease a line down the centre of each die cut then stuck them together on the crease line, this gives a 3D effect tree, to finish this off I added some pearl string and lights,

I die cut quite a few twig die cuts for a wreath effect for round the round window and added a Dusty Attic chipboard bird, this I coloured with my silks, I added more of the DD bricks and coloured them with chalk inks, the charm has a little gesso on too,

The last house is a little smaller so is a little hidden in this picture behind my choir girls, at the end of the house I fixed a die cut lamp which I die cut 5 times in cardstock, glued them together for strenth, added Perfect Pearls aged Patina to give an aged metal effect, then added some flowers on the base and the top of the lamp,
I used a couple of white flowers onto the building to look like a mock star,

All the images are of course by Magnolia and are all coloured with my copics then fussy cut out,

As you can see I have three choir girls singing their carols,

I also used:
Tilda with two little gifts,
 In the snow Ski Tilda, 
Tilda in cozy coat,
 Magnolia with butterfly (dog and I cut of the butterfly)

First of all I'd like to apologize for being MIA for more than a week, but we were in Germany (partly work, partly fun) and now in the midst of rebuilding the upper floors. Hence my absence. But I will try to visit you whenever I can Liz! Even though I won't be able to every time you put up a new post. But when I do, I am able to enjoy your lovely work again and you most certainly have made such wonderful creations! Always a pleasure to see them! Thanks for sharing, hugs, Ira xox
