White Christmas

Hello! 

It's getting close to Christmas, everyone!  Yikes, only 3 more sleeps!  Are you all ready for it?
I've been too busy to make any new card in the past few days--I don't know busy with what exactly though...LOL, there just seem to be too many things to take care of.  But here's another card I get to show you anyway.  And yes, it's another one of my advent calendar cards...hmmm.  I haven't done a white on white card for quite a while now.   It's one of my fave types, so I do want to make more of them.


Featured on this card is the adorable Tilda with Little Rudolph. Rudolph maybe little, but it looks like he's still a wee bit too heavy for Tilda to be lugging around...LOL. This image is from A Christmas Story Collection 2012 from Magnolia.


I've coloured the image with my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers. 

Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  This image is one of the more popular ones and it is out of stock already, but if you would like to have it, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Have a look there at the other equally adorable images, both full size and mini stamps. Check out also the large selection of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.

Challenges for this card:
Card Makin' Mamas Challenge - Happy Holidays

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by.  You must all be extremely busy at this time of year, so I appreciate your visit.  Have a fabulous weekend!
