Sweet Christmas

Good evening everyone.

I am so sorry I have been such a terrible blogger that I haven't been anywhere near a blog in well over a week. My intentions are always good but there doesn't seems to be enough hours in the day. My family always seem to need me for something just as I am about to sit down and craft so I am afraid I just gave up!!!.

The card I want to share has taken me over a week to complete I am ashamed to say. I really must get my act together.....

I think with this card I just opened the craft draw and threw every thing at it and then sat back to see what had happened. i think I may have to call this a clutter card.

The papers for this one are Lost and found Christmas by My Minds eye. I have to say this is definitely one of my new  favorites. 
you cant quite see from this photo but it is an easel card cut from white card stock. 
(not that you can much of the base card anymore)

I don't have the Magnolia tree doohickey so I trawled through my Cricut cartridges and came out with the joys of the season for the trees which I cut out of grunge paper and painted with picket fence crackle.
The cute little ginger bread people are quick kutzs as is the poinsettia flower. I used the doohickey tag and lace dies as well. I did say that I threw the craft draw at this one!.

I've used some of the Sweet Christmas Magnolia stamps on this coloured with of course Copic pens.
I stamped Tilda with snow heart onto a piece of white card and then created a mask with a post it note. Once Tilda had been masked I used the welcome to a sweet Christmas background stamp over Tilda so it looks like she is standing at her front door.

I finished off with a bit of stickles round the door, a metal candy cane, a bling brad for the poinsettia and a huge pearl.

I hope you like it
