Joyful Snow Wishes!

Well a happy middle of the week to you all AND Happy December 1st!! Just two more days till the weekend--yay--the first weekend of December!  Only a few more weekends to get all your shopping, visiting, decorating, and baking done--is it stressing you?  LOL--it sure is me!  I'm finishing up some projects today and some more decorating and then I have to run out and do errands.  Then Alexa has a basketball game she feels she needs to be at tonite too, lol!  All in a day's work huh--ever feel like you are chasing your own tail every day (yeppers that's me)!  But I always tell myself its better to be busy than dead, right?  Oh MY, lol!!  Okay--this is a LONG POST so make sure to make it all the way thru, lol!

So I have a MINI BLOG CANDY to give away today cuz I want to---you'll have to WAIT FOR THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT POST on Friday for the BIG 'UN though, hee hee!  I have a pack of the Sizzix Basic Grey holiday embossing folders in Powdered Sugar/Snowglobe (see here--they work just like the Cuttlebug ones), a bag of ribbon, and the super sweet "Secret Tilda" from Magnolia-licious! What do you have to do by Saturday--answer the below question for me on this post!

Just tell me what your fave Christmas/Holiday movie is when you comment (and if you liked my projects today of course, LOL)?

Wanna know mine?  LOL--let's see the Christmas Carol with George C. Scott, Christmas Vacation, The Christmas Story, Home Alone 1 & 2, Elf, Mrs. Miracle, The Santa Clause movies, Rudolph & Frosty and just about all the rest of them too.  We watch all of them the whole month of December--we already watched Home Alone 1 and The Santa Clause!

**Don't forget the Holiday Special I have going on thru Jan. 4th at the Color Me Creative Classroom--on all the Copic Classes!  They make great gifts too!  See the main site for details HERE!

Magnolia-licious December Sketch Projects

Today is December 1st so that means it's a new Magnolia-licious December Sketch and this month is hosted by the fabulous & lovely Diana Crick!  She challenged us all to create LETTER/WORD Projects using Magnolia stamps of course---there are so many different ways to interpret this challenge and I've made two for you today!!  You can find out all the details and how to win on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE!

If you are a member of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group then this project above may look a bit familiar, lol!  I made this for Diana as the banner of the NEW Magnolia-licious Challenge Group (see banner here).  I loved it so much that I knew I had to make it into a project that could be displayed every year.  So I added some fun background papers (Bo Bunny) and mounted it in a frame that can be hung up or stood up to display!!  I added the word "SNOW" to it though which wasn't in the original project--each letter has snow glitter on it to make it frosty and a snowflake mounted behind it!

First we have the letter "S" with cute "Tilda Skating"--she's one of my fave stamps and I taught how to color her in my Copic Classes this fall.  All the colors on the images coordinate for a blended & matchy look (BG23,BG11,BG10/V17,V15,V12,V00/C9,C7,C5,C3,C1,C00).  She's actually skating on the "Sea Background Pond" stamp that I transformed into a winter wonderland -- another way to stretch your stamp collection.  I added some winter trees (they are an older Magnolia stamp, but Winter Forest would work just as well).  I put diamond glaze on the pond with stickles on top for a glittery, icy look!

Then next up we have "Chilly Tilda" (Diana is out of her currently but Tilda on Kicksled is similar) and I have her sitting the Magnolia "large sled".  Doesn't she look like she's shivering--awww!  She has Sparkly Fluff on all her fur trim and diamond glaze on her snow boots!  The snow in the background is made with my fave MS Snow Glitter!  The background snowflakes are a Magnolia stamp as well

Last but certainly not least we have "Edwin on Sled" (he's not in stock, but ask Diana if she might be getting more) or there is always the MINI Edwin on Sled here :)  He has Doodlebug white flock (25% off right now) on his fur trim (no sparkles for this boy)!! Sorry for the glare on the glass here!

For my second "Letter" project I created a joyful ornament for the Christmas Tree!  Boy, I had a heck of a time getting a good picture of this project for you!  I wish you could see how shiny & sparkly it is in real life--so pretty!  Most of you know I go Christmas-CRAZY and put up 11 trees in and outside of my home so I'm always in need of more decorations!  And I could not WAIT to use those cute NEW Mini Magnolia stamps--you can see the whole collection at Magnolia-licious HERE!

To make this ornament I took 3 chipboard letters and did a fun foil treatment on them using TonerTex glue and foils in silver and gold.  I wanted a burnished look so I mixed up where I added each of the colors and once that was done I added a thin layer of stardust stickles to the entire word.  To join the letters together I made cs brackets and attached them with Scor-Tape so they stay together tight and then added the gold cording for a hanger.  The Lil' Angel was colored with Copics and then I added Stickles to her wings, socks and wand for more fun sparkle!  Isn't she a cutie?  And these mini's are PERFECT for ornaments and holiday tags!

I've still got a few more Christmas trees to put up (11 in total) but thought I'd share our formal living room tree with you since it's the tree that has the new ornament above on it :)  **And yes that's my cairn pup Baylee peeking at you on the couch, hee hee, she loves to sit there and look out the window!!** I call this my white and gold tree and it has all my Precious Moments ornaments and all of our "vacation & trip" ornaments.  Whenever we go anywhere I always pick up an ornament with the date and location so when I put this tree up it gives me sweet memories of all the places our family has visited together!  I even have ornaments for local places like the annual White House ornament and the zoo--makes it extra special to us!  I'll share the rest of the decorations with you all next week once everything is done!

Enjoy your day and make sure to stop by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Here to see the rest of the DT's projects and to join in as well!

    So my favourite Christmas movie is probably It's a Wonderful Life, I watch it every year. I guess it sums up a lot of what Christmas should be about. Home Alone 1 is also a fav! I watched it last year with my Brother, who is 16 yrs younger than me. He couldn't understand that Macaulay Culkin is actually the same age as me! he he!

    Well Take Care Hun! Lyns xx

  6. Love the Joy ornament! Thanks for a chance at your (not so mini) blog candy! My favorite holiday movie is an italian movie "the golden rose cavern", well at least I watched it when I was a child, don't have TV now in my home...

  7. OMG, I love, love, love your ornament!!! My favorite movie to watch at Christmas is Home Alone and a special favorite of mine are the Asterix (they're french cartoons I would watch everyday for about 2 weeks before Christmas).

  9. First, great chat last night. Second, your projects are fabulous, but they always are. Third, I was watching my copy of a Christmas Story when decorating our Christmas tree. It isn't Christmas at our house unless I've watched it - dozens of times. I even watch 24 hours of A Christmas Story on TNT every year, we have A Christmas Story ornaments and The Leg. It drives my husband crazy.

  10. These cards are absolutely stunning. I am a new comer to your site. What a find.

  12. I LOVE all the projects and the beautiful Christmas tree. That Baylee is adorable too...and here I thought my bichon, Mimi, was the only dog who laid on the sofa back like a cat. My all time fav. Christmas movie is "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, etc. Thanks for the fun contest!

  13. Your projects are just beautiful! I love them and have to really learn to color with the copics.

    My favorite christmas movie is gosh I don't know but my husband and I love watching Christmas Story all day on Christmas. I just love all Christmas movies and have been watching them since Thanksgiving

  23. Oh, Tilda and Edwin look like they are having so much fun! Very cute and I love the JOY ornament!

    Let's see -- White Christmas for the wonderful colors and retro clothes; Elf for the feel good movie and the kids love his running around in the revolving door; Love Actually because I just love it! Plus, we watch Rudolph about a hundred times between now and Christmas. LOL!

  24. Hi Suzanne,this card is so fantastic, Love the colours combo and the Ornament is so pretty in gold :)
    Well if I must choose one film it must be "It's a wonderful Life" from 1946 it's such a precious film
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  25. I'm new to your blog and have to say it makes great reading - I love all the help you give. Todays projects are both nice but for me it's the Christmas ornament that just has the edge.
    As for Christmas movies my favourite is always the current one I am watching lol but heading the list must be Elf and It's a Wonderful Life.

    Have a good week and hope you make some inroads with your 'to do' list!

  26. Hi Suzanne!
    I love all of your work. I get alot of my inspiration from you. Your copic skills are the best. I love the Matilda. I love the colors you chose and how well they blend. It's a treat every time I look at your blog!
    My favorite Christmas movie and really new. I think it came out in 2008. It's called, This Christmas. I love all of the music. I especially love the soultrain dance line that is done at the end of the movie! To me, thats what it's about, the time (not money) spent with family, friends and people you care about!

  27. Wonderful Suzanne,I love the images and the colours.

    Hugs Riet.x

  28. BEAUTIFUL! The first one is so fun and playful and the JOY is just GORGEOUS! I'm not playing along with your candy because I don't have one of those machines, but I wanted to leave a note anyway! Gorgeous and always so inspiring :D

  29. Wow! What great projects - I can see why you couldn't decide which one to use. They're both fantastic!

    Hmmm...Favorite holiday movie? I must confess this time, my TV is on around the clock and it is typically tuned in to ABCFamily (25 Days of Christmas), Lifetime (FalalalaLifetime) and the Hallmark Channel because they are showing such great holiday films! But, I do love Elf and the Santa Clause Movies!

  30. The two projects are awesome! So Inspiring, I have a mood wall which I will put them on to!

    My Favourite Christmas movies are 'A White Christmas', Miracle on 34th street new version, this has the best Santa suit I have ever seen, and Home Alone. Regards
    Wendy Maslen

  31. Your projects are beautiful. My favorite Christmas movies are the 3 The Santa Clause movies. I love them and watch them over and over again during the month of Dec.

  32. Suzanne...You are just so talented at any project that you do. Love this combination of colors, I've learned from you how to use the copics as best I can on the internet here in Arizona, thanks so much. Your trees are always gorgeous, can't wait to see them all again this year...Movie favorites, well probably all of them, lol.

  33. Love your projects, as usual. The Magnolia scene to hang each year is especially nice.
    I love all Christmas movies and have been watching them on the Hallmark channel alot. If I had to choose I think I would choose The Santa Clasu movies, Christmas Vacation and a new one this year Santa Paws. Thanks for a chance to win.

  34. Love both projects but particularly love the Joy ornament. My favorite holiday movie is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I am not sure why but I have loved it since I was a child.

  35. Hi Suzanne!
    When I first saw your heading for the new Magnolia challenge blog I thought how beautiful it is. I love the three children. Tilda in the middle looks like she is saying "Just leave me here to watch. I don't want to go and play" The colors are gorgeous.
    Your second project Joy with the beautiful little angel is so sweet.
    Adore your Christmas tree. I was amazed last year looking at all your trees. Baylee is such a cute dog and wants to be in on the action hehe.
    My favourite Christmas movie is Miracle on 34th Street.
    Hugs maz

  36. I love the ornament. It looks so pretty with the light behind it.

    My favorite Christmas movie is one that not many hear of it's call A house without a Christmas tree. It is from the 70's. Nothing fancy or special effects about the movie. I guess that is what makes it something different.

  37. Suzanne, Just love how you've managed to fit all three kiddies into a picture. Absolutely gorgeous, as usual. Thanks for all your inspiration!
    Rubber hugz, inky wishes,

  38. my fave, fave, fave movie "season" is Christmas - there are so many good movies, but, to top the list is a move called "A Christmas Story" - it is such a nostalgic look at families and Christmas, but it is not sugary sweet treakle either - if you're never seen it, watch it this Christmas!

  39. Great projects! Fave movie is Miracle on 34th Street.

  40. I love both of your projects today. I am so excited about the new Mini Magnolia stamps as well!! I have a few of them on order with Diana.

    My favorite Christmas movie is "It's a Wonderful Life." However I prefer the remade version with Marlo Thomas the actress that played on "That Girl." I remember watching reruns of that show when I was little. In any case, have a great day!!


  41. Your card is wonderful. I love your color choices. They make it look like they are having so much fun.
    My favorite holiday movies include "The Bishop's Wife" starring Cary Grant, "It's a Wonderful Life", "Christmas Vacation", "Home Alone" and all the regular specials about Rudolph and Santa. That is probably the most fun thing about the pre-holiday season.

  42. Miracle on 34th Street is my favorite Christmas movie and your card is so greaI am just a beginner.

  43. gorgeous creations! My favorite show is always Charlie Brown Christmas ;-), tfs!

  44. Suzanne, Your tree is awesome. Can't wait to see the rest of them. Your purple and turquoise trio is also amazing. I just love how you have used all three images in such a creative way. The colors are so pretty. I love all of the old Christmas movies, but one of my favs is Miracle on 34th Street.....because "I Believe"
    Diane V

  45. Your cards are gorgeous....and I love the "JOY" ornament....I think I can make one of those....and looking at your....ready does make me want too.....and I absolutely love your is so pretty......
    My favorite Christmas movie is "Miracle on 34th"'s not Christmas until I see this reminds me of my childhood....well that's when it came out too.....tfs

  46. Suzanne, you know I am an ardent admirer! I drool over your flawless work! I try to do more and challenge myself because you've set the goal so high. The posts of today are just two more examples of why each of us love your work!

    I know that my movie isn't all that old, but it has to be a movie that just always pulls emotion out of me. I'm a tender heart, so it may not affect others the same way. The title of the movie is "Prancer." It's about a little girl that believes...I've never watched it with dry eyes.

    Chris Christensen

  47. Eleven trees! OMG! I don't think I could get that many trees in our house. Beautiful tree! I love the Joy ornament and the card. The colors are lovely on the snow project! You never disappoint with your projects! My favorite movie for Christmas is The Santa Clause. Tim Allen is so funny! Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

  48. I always love your projects! Your tree is beautiful. My favorite Christmas movie is It's a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart.

  76. I love your is beautiful! The colors on your card are awesome, as usual!
    Favorite Christmas movie...I like when they premiere a movie around Christmas. I am looking forward to the third "Narnia" movie which is supposed to be released this month. It gives us a family activity to aim for and enjoy together!!!!

  77. I love your project! You did a great job creating a scene with little vignette. I love the color scheme, too! (I just finished posting to my own blog about my love of non-traditional Christmas card colors!)

    Favorite movie? Like you, I like them all. :) Favorites have to include Elf and just about every Rankin & Bass production ever made (Year Without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph, etc.). Recently saw Disney's A Christmas Carol and loved that, too, although I'll always have a place in my heart for the Mr. Magoo version. :) I scouted the internet for years before I found it on VHS. (Yes, I am crazy about Christmas movies! lol!)

  78. Hi Suzanne - Hmm-my favorite movie has to be "Miracle on 34th Street". Love that movie, in fact, all the oldies. But anything with Jimmy Stewart. Your projects are stunning, as usual. Love the color combo on the wall hanging and the ornament is a terrific idea. Your tree is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Thanks for the chance at yummy candy!!! Hugs, Sharon :o)

  79. Hi Suzanne,
    What sweet projects! The SNOW card made me shiver just looking at it!
    The mini stamp you used to make your ornament is a must have!
    I used to love watching all of the kiddie Christmas cartoons as a kid, and I still do as a "big kid"!
    My fave movie would have to be "The Christmas Story" - it's just so darn funny!
    LOVE your tree!
    Thanks for the opprotunity to win the candy!

    Donna G

  80. Your projects are amazing! I love the Santa Clause series. It is just a fun set of movies. Your projects are such inspiration.

  81. Both of your 'letter' projects are fabulous, Suzanne! I particularly love the lilac and aqua colour combo!
    My fave Christmas movie has to be Polar Express - just wonderful and even more spectacular in 3D!
    Diane x

  82. Hi Suzanne!
    You know how I love the Maggies and you made them look wonderful as usual! I would love to be in that winter scene with Tilda and Edwin, yummy snow! Your tree is awesome and Baylee is a doll. When you get all the trees up remember we are trading houses for a month! LOL!
    I am like you I love all the Christmas movies but my absolute favorite has to be Emmett the Otter. I used to watch that all the time with my kids and it took me forever to find it on dvd. Love it!
    Big Hugs!

  83. Hi Suzanne,
    Love both your projects :o)
    Love the colours of the first one of course!
    Your ornament is so sweet!
    My favourite movie has always been:
    'It's a Wonderful Life' with Jimmy Stewart :o)
    Hugs, Candy

  84. Love all your projects today. I think that "Tilda Skating" is really cute, but I really loved the sparkling Joy ornament. My favorite recent movie is Elf, but I have fond memories of my older son (now 38) watching Rudolph when he was about six and crying because he didn't want the movie to be over.

  85. Love your work as always! The ornament is inspired! Just love it.
    As for the movies...has to be a toss up between Holiday Inn and Miracle on 34th Street. Both are just inspiring...remind me how really good people are when you come down to it.
    Thanks so much!

    The snow & joy projects are beautiful. I just love that aqua & purple color combo.

  92. I love all your creations, just beautiful !!
    I know it's not a tradional Christmas movie, but my favorite movie to watch during the holidays since I was a kid, it "The Sound of Music" I guess because it relates to family and that's what the holidays are all about. My other fav to watch with my kids is "Elf" just to funny, gotta love Will Ferrell.

  93. I love all of your projects! I've signed up for your classes in CT in April and I have to tell you that I can't wait :)
    My favorite Christmas movies are the original Miracle on 34th Street and Love Actually (which I'm not sure if it's technically a christmas movie, but it happens at christmas time) Thanks so much for the chance to win! :)


  94. Love your creations! You are so talented. My all time favorite move is "It's a Wonderful Life" followed by "Miracle on 34th Street." Guess you can say I am an "oldie but goodie"!

  95. Your Tilda card is just adorable! Love tht wintery scene! The JOY ornament is fabulous also!
    Gosh - I'm like you, Suzanne, I love to watch the holiday movies-- all of them! My favorites are Rudolph, the Grinch, Polar Express, Frosty and It's a Wonderful Life. Just makes the holiday season for me to watch them!

  96. You just blow me away again and again. I'm loving these colors together. And the those mini stamps...can we just say cute! I don't know were you get the energy to put so many trees. I do good to get up just one...haha. Now for my fav Christmas movie...hmmm..I would have to say The Polar Express.

  97. This is sad and funny at the same time for me. Over the last couple of years I had to have all my teeth pulled except 2. Now my insurance company is questioning that I have any teeth left. So by Saturday I have to go back to the dentist to have an xray taken to prove I still have 2 teeth. It borders on the ridiculous side if you ask me. I am just glad I can laugh about it now:)

  98. oooh your tree looks fabulous!
    As for your projects they are adorable, especially love the first one, just my sort of colours My favourite Christmas film is Miracle on 34th Street or Home Alone x

  99. Both projects are gorgeous, Suzanne!! I love, love, love that ornament!!!! And your frame is stunning too! Fabulous work as always! My favorite all time Christmas movie is A Christmas Carol, and it HAS to be the George C Scott version. I don't like any of the others. I could almost quote the entire movie for you! LOL! I'm set if Hollywood should ever call me in to play the part! heehee! Thanks for the fun!
    hugs, Sharon

  103. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Carol with George C Scott, I don't know why, I have loved it since I was a kid. It's a Wonderful Life is a close second. And of course I LOVE your projects, your work is amazing!

  104. What beautiful coloring on these images. It just makes me want to be right there in the snow with them! Grin.

    My favorite movie is Hugh Grant's Love Actually. I watch it every Christmas. The second would be White Christmas with Rosemary Clooney and Bing Crosby. Just love the old Hollywood musicals.

  105. Hi Suzanne!
    I love your blog! It is the only one I check out regularly. I must say, I love everything you create, so I only have "Love it" and "Love it more". Todays "Joy ornament" is a love it more!!!
    Favorite Christmas movie? ...probably "The Polar Express". It is visually stunning!

  106. Hi Suzanne, love your cards. The hot choc cup really pops with the red & green. Love the glitz on the Magnolia and Edwin cards. I always love ALL of your work!
    As for movies - I've always loved The Christmas Box w/Maureen O'Hara & Richard Thomas (John Boy Waltons). Love to watch Christmas Vacation and the Home Alone ones for laughter. Then it really feels like Christmas after seeing all of those.

  107. Fab projects, the little Magnolias are sooo cute!
    Can't believe you put up 11 Christmas trees, I'm happy enough just to be doing 1!
    I love all the Christmassy movies, but Elf and Home Alone 1 always make me laugh.

  108. Your work is what I aspire to be able to produce after hours and hours of practice with my Copics! I love the ornament and absolutely am in love with with the blues and purples you used on the snow scene. I'm going to try to snowflake trick you shared!

    My favorite Christmas Movie is "An Affair to Remember" with Debra Kerr and Carey Grant. It's a beautiful love story which resolves itself on Christmas Eve! Love, love, love happy endings!

    Trying to stay "On the Dark Side", Suzanne! It really takes practice, but I am LOVING my Copics.

  109. Suzanne, I recognize that, looks perfect with the word snow. I have used your banner for our Christmas Gift Certificates. Love the chipboard letters, they are absolutely precious with the the foil technique and glad to hear you used Scor-Tape....giggle!!! How big are the letters and did you buy them or cut them on a Cricut or something?
    hugs, Diana

  116. Hi, Suzanne. Trying to catch up on all your posts this week. I've been a little under the weather. BTW, are you kidding? I love everyone of your projects. You are such an inspiration to me and I visit everyday if possible. There's not one card or project you've posted that I don't admire.

    My fav movies during the Holidays are: "Christmas Vacation" always watched after Thanksgiving dinner since it was out on Video/DVD back in the 90's which has become a family tradition. And I gotta love Ron Howard's "The Grinch" with Jim Carrey. My hubby & I laugh our buns off the whole time. I especially love Max the dog. He's so expressive and having 2 Great Danes remind me of their expressions because they are so smart.

    Hugz to you always,
    Cathy Lee

  117. I alway love your work. These magnolia images are adorable. My favorite holiday movie is Rudolf. I always watched it as a child and still enjoy watching it.

    Merry Christmas,

  118. Absolutely love your adorable card. Beautifully balanced and gives a complete winter scene. You are my inspiration! My all time fave movie is Miracle on 34th street. Always fills my heart with joy and makes me cry.
    Best wishes ... Katheleen

  119. Just love your colour combinations! And your tree is beautiful. I think my fave Christmas movies are Rudolph and Polar Express!

  120. Totally gorgeous and stunning projects Suzanne!!!

  121. H Suzanne,

    I am new to all of this technology for scrapbooking. I came across your site a few months ago while doing some reseach on Copic Markers and the cute Magnolia stamps. And now I am addicted to your site, I look foward to receiving your eamils displaying all of your creativity. I can only dream of being as good as your word is one day.
    Its hard to pick just one item from this post as my favorite- but if I had to then I would say the snowman card is my favorite for today.
    Holiday Movies? Well sure thanks to the world we live in, we have several to chose from,however, my favorite since I was little is "It's a Wonderful Life". Traditional I watch this movie as I bake holiday cookies for my co-workers and thorughout the holiday season. And then on Christmas morning! That is a requirement in our home to watch this movie while we have breakfast.
    Thank you again for being so willing to share your ideas and the time to post all the things you do.
    Havea great holiday season.

  122. Absolutely gorgeous creations!! I LOVE the joy ornament!! And your tree is beautiful!!
    My favorite Christmas movie is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, there's just something about it that sends me straight back to childhood and all the warm fuzzy feelings that Christmas brings!!!
    Have a wonderful holiday season!!!

  123. My favoriate Holiday movie is the christmas story. The toungue on the flagpole does work my second oldest and his best friend "double dog dared" and (his friend) Josh got stuck on the flag pole. The neet thing about it Josh looked just like the kid who did it. I work with the teacher that found this sight, she thought they were smarter than that. As always I love your work. ENjoyed taking your class in greensboro and learned alot. You have a eye for color.

  124. So cute, as always! The Santa Clause movies are my favorites. Although Rudolph with Burl Ives will always have a spot in my heart. Watched it again just the other night.

  125. Each year before my mom died I used to watch Christmas on the 34th avenue or something like that... and Sissi... during Xmas time...

  126. Well... of course love your projects! I think I especially like your little Tilda Joy ornament. Adorable! And... my favorite Christmas movie is without a doubt, 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I just have to watch it every year. Thanks for a chance at such great candy.

  127. I love the Chilly Tilda, the colors you used are fab, your tree is gorgeous. My fav xmas movie, A Christmas Story. Thanks

  128. Hi Suzanne! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Love the Joy ornament, the Fun Snow scene framed with the 3 beautifully colored (of course!) Christmas magnolias. They are all having a blast in the snow! Such a truly "Fun" framed snow-scape to put out each year. Love it! Totally in love with the mini magnolias too. Wish I could get the whole set. Maybe by next Christmas. You are always so generous with your blog candy give aways. Thanks for that!
    I love to watch the old black and white of "Miracle on 34th Street",with Maureen O"Hara (such a outstanding and beautiful actress!) and Natalie Wood, as the little girl. Is she not just the cutest thing in that movie? So precious!
    I also watch the Jimmy Stewart movie 'Wonderful Life" with my husband at least 4 or 5 times, as thats his favorite!

  129. Suzanne, both your projects are absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the "Joy" on using the mini Starlight Tilda! Where do you find the time for all that you do and 11 trees to decorate!
    Blessings and hugs,



I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
