Merry Christmas

Happy Sunday!

We got a break in the weather and it's sunny outside this morning. But brrr.....baby, it's cold outside! It was 3 degrees Celcius!!!

A new challenge at Magnolia Down Under--this is Challenge #28. Our theme is Bedazzled - "As they say Tis the Season and glitter, Bling, dazzling Diamonds, Stickles, charms, Rhinestones etc the list is endless go hand in hand. "

This weeks sponsor is Magnolia Down Under *STORE* and the prize this fortnight is the stamp for this adorable image of Christmas Eve Tilda.

I hope you will check out the creations of the other DT members at MDUC. And the details of their project can be found on their individual blogs.

I've chosen these non-traditional Christmas colours for my Christmas card because this card is part of a gift set. The colours here are to match the other items in the set.

I'm using this card as my entry into the following challenges:

The card-and-gift set is for my Mom, so it fits the theme for the Monthly Special Challenge at Just Magnolia Week 34 -- make a card for Someone Special.


I used this sketch provide for Lili of the Valley's Challenge 42. I've flipped the sketch over to its side.

The theme for Stamp With Fun Challenge 35 is Xmas.

The theme for Cute Card Thursday Challenge 89 - Swirly Girly!
The theme for Creative Card Crew Challenge 39 is Christmas.

The theme for Stamp Something is Glitzy Somethings
Here's a closeup to show off the glitz and glitters, etc.

I've applied glitters to the scallop edges of the circle, to Tilda's fur trim and to the falling snowflakes and swirls in the background. Added rhinestones to the orange swirls and the huge punched snowflake.

That's it! Lots to do, lots to do!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the lovely comments. I really, really do appreciate each and every one of them. They make my day.



This is the entire card and gift set for my Mom.



Stamps: Magnolia Silent Night Tilda.
DP's from Making Memories Autumn Splendor collection.
Tool: Martha Stewart Large Snowflake punch, EK Success Swirl punch.
Misc. : me&my BIG ideas Icon rhinestones, Mark Richards pearls.

Your card is beautiful Norma. I love to click on the pictures to bring them up close and see all the detail. I love how you have done her coat with the glitter on the fur. Real classy.
I'll have a bit of your weather. It's very hot here and hard to get things done.
