I so enjoyed making the first two advent calendar cards that I decided to make that my theme for this year. I usually don't have a common theme--I just make whatever I feel like making...LOL. My plan was to make as many as I can for the people on my Christmas card list in whatever time allowed. So, I have been busy making a whole bunch of them and then mailing them all out. I won't show them to you all at once, but bit by bit. If you get tired of seeing them, let me know...and I'll stop...LOL.
So here's one of them. Keep in mind that I was rushing so the embellishments on all the cards have been kept to the minimum.
The images being featured here are all from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012 from Magnolia. This is Tilda on the Roof and of course she is sitting on the Snowy Roof. I've actually extended the original roof image to cover the width of the card by hand-drawing more shingles.
Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. You can find both full size and mini stamps there. Diana also has a selection of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.
This is Edwin With Sack. I don't see this Edwin in the store's inventory, so he must be out of stock. If you would like to get him, just ask Diana if she can bring the stamps in for you.
