Hello and Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderfull weekend! I had a great one visiting with my mom and sister and just hanging out. Yesterday after they left I got to spend some quality time in my craft room finishing up some projects for ya this week. And guess what else....we had a gigantic vulture in our front yard yesterday eating a dead, 3 ft long black snake---ewwwwww! My hubby took care of it this time, while I stood inside, lol! What is it with the wildlife liking my yard? Go away snakes, I'm sick of ya!!
The card I'm sharing with you today is another Christmas card (hey, gotta start 'em early ya know)!! I used another Magnolia stamp from their fall kit (if you missed out on this kit, the individual stamps will be for sale soon and the winter kit can now be pre-ordered here). I love this lil' Tilda in her nightgown giggling like she has a secret and can't wait for Santa!! The background stamp is from The Stampin Place again (told ya I have lots of them in store for ya)--they work beautifully with the Magnolias. Diana Crick's store will be opening this week--I'll post everything as soon as her site is up and running so you can order lots of Magnolias :) !!!
Pretty simple card layout, but this card has lots goin' on! I used diamond glaze on the glass of milk, candles and clock face for shine. I used my Atyou Spica pens for subtle glitter in lots of spots and stickles on the flames in the fireplace. The stockings have liquid applique on them for a textural puffed look. I also added some Gel-tins scented powder in pine to the garland--smells wonderful, like fresh cut xmas trees. The dp and cs is from SU. The sentiment is again from PTI's "Holiday Wishes" (lovee that set) and I added red glitterdots to the corners.
So whatcha' think! This card only took me about 1.5 hours, so not too bad and it was really fun to put together and color. I'll be making about 5 more of these to send out for the holidays too. Hope ya have a great day and I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
