Christmas All Year Long--March

Welcome! The year is going fast in the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop! It's March already, and with spring in the air and crocuses in bloom, it's hard to concentrate on snow and winter.

You should have arrived here after visiting Cheryl Rowley's blog. If you just happened upon my blog, you might want to start at the beginning, which would be the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog. Then you can follow us along, blog after blog, one beautiful card after another!

My card was a challenge to myself--to use some paper that was left from last year's cards. It was a beautiful paper from TPC Studio called Winter Blues Winter Wonderland, and I had quite a few pieces left. Adding the silver Mirror Card behind a cut-out oval gave me a perfect spot to place Tilda.

I'm not sure it shows in the picture, but I added sparkle to the fur on her hood and coat with a clear Spica glitter pen that I just got last weekend--love it!The paper itself had "Let it Snow" printed on one of the stripes, so I framed that on the lower part of the easel card with snowflakes. I don't know how many snowflakes I used--but can one have too many on a winter card? LOL! And any of them that the center was on top got a little gem in the middle.

While it looks like this card took a long time, it really didn't, and I'll probably make a few more like it before Christmas rolls around.

Many thanks go to Diana at Magnolia-licious Store, Deb of the Yahoo Magnolia-licious Group, and to our blog hop organizer, Julie!

Your next stop on the blog hop is with the talented Jessica Hammond. Enjoy the rest of your hop! And if you feel so inclined--leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my card! I love hearing from you!

Supplies: Cardstock--GeorgiaPacific (white), Mirror Card (silver), and TPC Studios (patterned paper); Nestabilities (oval die); Martha Stewart snowflake punch; The Paper Studio (gems); Magnolia stamp--Tilda #300 with Hood; Copic markers as shown.
