I Just Love This Card!

This is my first ever Magnolia Stamp! I won it the other week in a Challenge at Dotties World,I just love her! she may be my first Tilda but she definitely won't be my last as she was so lovely to colour,I'm more than a little pleased with this card,unusual for me,normally all I can see are the bits that I think I should have done better!

I wish I'd discovered her before I'd made all my cards,guess who will be staring on my cards next year?..... lol! I stamped her using Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her using Copics. The papers are by Dovecraft,the heart shaped sentiment is "Jingle Bells"by Anitas,I stamped it and distressed it using assorted distress inks.I used stickles to add sparkle to the "Fur and the Fir",what a coincidence lol!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Stampin with Dragon 16,Make it sparkle,
Totally Tilda Challenge 11,For the one I love,(use the word love,use hearts)
A Spoonful Of Sugar,Christmas card,
Allsorts Challenge 83,Anything goes,
Alphabet Challenge,H is for Hats,
Crafty Anns 30,Anything goes,
SISC39,Holidays,
StampsRUs 11,Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

She is lovely as are all the details. I can't spend time in my bubble right now - cards will have to wait - taking care of my sister while she recovers from a 'new knee'. But that won't keep me from keeping up with my fav blogs!
Don't you love it when you finish a card, look at it, and this little bell chimes in your head: 'Ding, ding, ding, ding - she shoots, she SCORES!'
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
