Walkin in a Winter Wonderland !


Hi there can you believe it is the 25th of Aug. already.....where has this year went? I tell you the years seem to go by quicker every year! Welcome to another Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog hop. If you arrived here from Carole then you are on the right path, if you just happened to stop by and see me you may want to start at the beginning so you don't miss out on any of the great creations. I really enjoyed making this card I have used the image "Sideways Tilda with Lantern" and "Three Christmas Pines" they are both colored with copics. I don't see the trees but you can get Tilda from Diana here. The trees are a really big stamp so I cut one of them off. I have added stickles and scribbles 3D paint to the trees. DP is Cosmo Cricket, "Be good: Believe" Lace up pieces are cut with the wishblade. Ribbons, brads, snowflakes and gems all from my stash ! I have used flower soft for the snow below the trees. I used chalk for the sky. Tilda has fun flock on her hat, glossy accents on her lantern and Stickles on her wings, she is popped up for dimension.

Thanks for joining us on our Christmas Blog hop and now you are going to go visit the very talented Kathy .

I will be entering this into the following challenges
Midnight Madness MMSC68.

Papertake Weekly - recipe of 3, 2, 1 + 3 ribbons, 2 stamps, 1 lace up

Thats it for me, have a great day !

Your card puts me in the Christmas mood! Of course it helps that it is actually chilly this morning. Like your color choices and your lacing down the side is cool.
