Christmas is Coming!

Hi there and happy Friday to you all!  Christmas is right around the corner I tell you time flies these days.  Special day for me today as I got to go have a Thanksgiving feast with my youngest grand-daughter Megan at her school, the smile on her face is priceless!  Did some Christmas shopping so I feel pretty accomplished today and I had some coloring time this morning!

I have been busy making Christmas cards and this is a little scene I put together

I love Tilda she won my heart years ago and still makes me smile when I color her!  This little image is an older one it is "Tilda with Star"  I used the 3 trees stamp from Magnolia-licious and just cut the free standing one off.   Images are colored with copics and then I added  "scribbles white mist puff paint" to the tress for the snow effect and dimension, then added the red glass jewels. This is a center panel stair step card cut with the wishblade using the Silhouette Studio Program.  The swirl is a Magnolia DooHickey Die.  The papers are Basic Grey "Nordic Holiday"

A little side view for you!
