Winter Town!

Hi everybody & Happy Thursday! Oh its a cold & dreary day here in VA--perfect for working on projects all day, hee hee! We had some major computer issues with our family computer last nite, seems that one of those trojan horse viruses ate our hard drive-aaacckk! I'm hoping it doesn't get my laptop cuz' my life is on here, lol--I'm faithfully backing it up though! Hopefully we will be able to save the other computer, we'll aggravating ya know.

So here is my one and only creation for your eyes today! And wowsers it did take me awhile to do this, lol! I got my Holiday Magnolia's from Diana yesterday and couldn't wait to ink all these cuties up. This is "Dalecarlia Coat Tilda" from Magnolia-licious--this is the first image I saw that I knew I HAD to have, love her detailed coat & tilted head (btw Dalecarlia is a province in Sweden).

And I had to pair her up with another background stamp by The Stampin' Place--this one is "Winter Town". Ya know how I adore my bg stamps and this one was super fun to color too although it did take awhile. There are lotsa details on this card so click it to make it larger if ya need to. The snow on the house roofs is from my DecoArt SnowWriter, snow on land & trees is liquid applique w/ diamond stickles on top. The windows and skating pond has a smooth layer of diamond glaze on top for a nice glassy shine. There's also some extra Glitz Stickles on the icicles.

Everything was colored w/ Copics and Tilda was cut out and popped up w/ dimensionals. The dp is from SU's holiday line "Alpine". The inside sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farm's "Mona Lisa-Christmas Expressions". So whatcha' think--I lovee it & want to frame it for the holidays!

Some quick newsies for ya & then I'm done, lol! I got all my new Nestabilities from 7 Kids College Fund & can't wait to use them--check 'em out if you haven't already! And don't forget that Paper Trey Ink is having their release party tomorrow night at 10 pm (EST)--their new stamps & paper are a must have (at least for a fan like me, lol)! See ya tomorrow w/ some Red, White & Blue projects.
