Christmas All Year Long--January

Welcome! If you're following along on the Christmas All Year Long blog hop, you've landed in the right place. If not--why not follow along for a bit? You might just find yourself falling in love with the Magnolia kids--just as we all did!

First, though--many thanks to Julie for organizing the whole blog hop, and to Diana and Deb for all they do for us! Now--on to my card . . .






I hadn't had a chance to use this lovely little Tilda (#300, Tilda with Hood), but she seemed like she was out and about on her Christmas errands, and I had this lovely church scene that I'd never quite been able to color to my satisfaction. Thank goodness I've found Copic markers--because I'm very happy with this try! And once it was colored, I had to wait a little bit before Tilda told me what color her coat was. I said blue--she said no--so I continued making my card and added the background paper. That's when she said she wanted a pretty purple coat with FUR. So, between the glitter pen for her coat and the stars, real glitter for the trees, and the FlowerSoft for her hood and more of the snow--I had made a pretty good mess of my craft room! LOL!

The sentiment is popped up on a couple of thin (1/8") dimensionals, to provide the stopper for my easel card. So easy, and such a nice size (my panels are 5-1/2" square) to work with! I tried to take a picture to best show the glitter and FlowerSoft, so I hope you can see it well.

I'd love to hear what you think of her--so please leave a comment!


Enjoy the rest of the blog hop! Next up is Jenn Koss at http://scrappinforlife.blogspot.com/ .
