Let It Snow!

Hello.  Happy Tuesday!

We're midway in our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog where the theme is...WEATHER WAYS.  Show some kind of weather in your card/project--sunny, wintry, snowy, rainy, icy, cold, hot, foggy, etc.  You have one more week to join the challenge.  It's Magnolia-licious Team B's turn to show our cards/projects for you inspirations.

So I went with the wintry snowy weather...

I've done some masking work in the stamping of the two Magnolia images I used here.  The colouring was done with my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers. 

The two images being featured are:
- Silent Night Tilda from the So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009
- Winter Fence from the Santa Collection 2008

Although this Tilda is an older Tilda, she is still one of my favorite Christmas images. 

Check out Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini stamps. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Also available now at Magnolia-licious are those adorable Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and exquisite cutting dies from MagnoliaMemory Box, PoppyStamps.
Diana offers discounted prices, excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!
Don't forget to check out the "Deal of the Day", a new feature at Magnolia-licious store. The 'deal' item changes daily and is hugely discounted!

This is another easel card from me, but this time it is a twisted easel card.  I've taken pictures of the card on display from a couple of different angles...

Challenges for this card:
It's a Magnolia Challenge - Christmas Sketch #56
As You Like It Challenge #2 - Favorite 2-Colour Combo (and why) (Blue and Brown--blue is my favorite colour and brown complements it beautifully)

How fun, Norma! The snowflakes added to the Frostyville Die is brilliant! I love your Tilda. I don't have that stamp and wish I did! It is so cute all colored up! It is a wonderful card and makes me wish it were winter (especially when it's 100 outside already)! I love your work!
