NOEL

Hello.

It's 25th of the month, so it's time for a Christmas card for the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop (thank you to Julie for organizing it). Our group is part of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. Our air is to produce a Christmas card on every 25th of each month so that by the time Christmas comes around, we have at least eleven less card to make. I have already missed one month...sigh. I think I have to make up another card to make up...LOL.

A list of the participants and the start of the blog hop can be found at the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog. If you're taking part in the blog hop and have come here from Nadyne's blog, then you're in the right place. The next blog to visit after me is Peggie's.

This is what I have made for my Christmas creation. I have combined a full-size Tilda with 3 mini ones.


The panels were made with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Twenty. The letters were made with Fiskars template.



This is Mini Starlight Tilda from the Merry Christmas Collection 2010.




This is Tilda With Wreath from the Winter & Christmas Supplement 2007.




This is Mini Tilda in Winter Light from the Merry Christmas Collection 2010.




This is Mini Sitting Angel Tilda from the Merry Christmas Collection 2010.

All these Magnolia images/stamps can be purchased from Magnolia-licious on-line store.



The panels can be folded up (for easy mailing...LOL) and I have decorated the front of the card like this.




I've used my markers to colour these images. Although the minis take less time to colour than the regular-sized one, I'm finding it a tad difficult because the spaces are so small. I think I will try to colour them with my coloured pencils next time.

I'm using this card a my entry into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Challenge 66 - Recipe: sparkle, pearls, die cuts and the colour yellow.
ABC Challenge - S is Sparkle


That's all. Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate your visit very much. Now if you would like to continue with the blog hop, your next blog to visit is Peggie's.

Norma, what a cute card. Love the mini's you used. Love the extra sparkle you added to the images. I also find them a tad difficult to color until I picked up my full spectrum light with a magnifying glass....

Fabulous creation. Love all the Tilda's. I know what you mean about coloring the mini's with copics. It is harder.
