Winter Wishes and Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop


Hi and thanks for joining our 1st Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Julie from our Yahoo group came up with this great idea to do a Christmas card on the 25th of each month, hey that sounded great to me, when Christmas comes I will have a great head start on cards ! If you arrived from the very talented Tracey's blog then you are on the right track, if not you may want to start at the the very talented Julies and visit all the talented ladies participating in this hop.
This little cutie is Silent Night Tilda and you can get her from Diana at Magnolia-licious I see that she is out of stock at the moment but I am sure if you contact Diana she will gladly get her for you.
This card will also fit in the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites where the theme of a "Frame Card" for this challenge is from the very talented Sharon thank you so much for stretching me here a little :)
This card was originally created by the very talented Claudia if you would like the instructions you can find them here. My image is colored with copics. I used Baby Blue color box chalks to shade in the background and I have added Polar White flower soft to her jacket. I also used Diamond stickles on her headband, socks and the little swirls, snowflakes and the shadowing at her feet. The little branches are the MS Christmas branch punch, the sentiment is from the Snag'em Stamps Snowy Jo collection. I used my distress tool on the sentiment and walnut distress ink.
DP is Imaginisce "Polar Expressions".
Well I hope you have enjoyed your hop with us from here you go to Julies
Have a great week !
Hugs,
