Season's Greetings


Yes! I'm still at it--still making Christmas cards!! Here's another round easel card, but it's not quite a mini one. I found a round die cut that's bigger than my largest Nesties. It's from Marianne Design and it measures about 5 1/4 inches in diameter--love this size! It's also a cutting and embossing die.

This sweet angel from Magnolia is called Tilda With Hanging Heart from the A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010. You can purchase the stamp for this image (and anything Magnolia and much more) from Diana's store Magnolia-licious.

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

Paper Sundaes Challenge 48 - Anything but a square or rectangle.

Creative Inspirations Challenge 49 - Anything goes Christmas.

Stamp With Fun Challenge 89 - Christmas.

Passion for Promarkers Week 80 - Anything goes.

A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge 133 - Christmas card.

Creative Card Crew - Anything goes.

Flutter By Wednesday Challenge 135 - Open challenge.

Crafty Catz Challenge 63 - Your choice.

Allsorts Challenge Week 83 - Free and Easy - Anything goes.

Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas Inspired Challenge

The inside of my card looks like this. The sentiment on the bottom section was heat embossed in gold embossing powder. I've added a little blank space on the top section to write my personal notes on.

Thanks for your visit. I appreciate you dropping by during this very busy time of year. Have a wonderful and produtive weekend!

Stamps: Tilda with Hanging Heart from Magnolia's A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010, sentiment from Inkadinkadoo clear stamp set Winter Shapes.

Really beautiful Norma. I am intrigued by the nice big round die cut. That would be a nice addition to my craft room. Nice that it has the embossing on it. Love the branches that she is leaning on. Nice touch. Your coloring is lovely.

Sorry for the late visit Norma. I am getting down to 70+ emails. (Better than going through over 300 emails like last weeks, lol)
I agree that is a great shape easel size. Very cute and love that frame and the pick of this Tilda. You reminded me to use her as I have a project that I am not sure which image to use, I definitely know what to use now!! Thanks so much :o)
If I don't make it to your blog before Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
