Hello, everyone! And a Merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you're all having or going to have a fabulous time with family and friends.
Okay, I promise this is the last advent calendar card that you are going to see on my blog...that is the last card this year! LOL. I had planned for this card to be posted on Christmas day, so I've set the advent calendar date to Dec. 25 when I took the pictures, before giving the card to my sister and her family.
This image of Tilda in Winter Light, is I think still my all time favorite Christmas Tilda...or one of...LOL She is from the Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 from Magnolia. The bench is a CC Designs Sugarplums Park Bench image.
Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, is an excellent source for your Magnolia images. You can find both full-size and mini stamps. However if you can't find the one you want there--like this Tilda one because it's out of stock as it's from a 2010 collection--ask the lovely Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Oh, and check out also the adorable images from the upcoming With Love Collection 2013. They are ready for pre-orders!
Don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but I added glitter to the snowflakes and the snow on the ground. Oops, forgot to sprinkle some yellow/gold glitter around the lantern so that it looks like the light is haloed around it...agghhh!!!
