Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Once again it is time for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. What fun this is. If you came here from the talented Norma's blog here you are on the right track. If you didn't and want to start at the beginning click http://magnolia-liciouschristmasallyearlong.blogspot.com/
I had so many ideas swirling around in my head and in the end I didn't do any of them.  Ah well that is the way it goes - maybe next time.


 I used Silent Night Tilda and poinsettias for this card. Tilda is colored in copics. I'll try to list all of them at the end, but there are almost 30 - no wonder I usually don't list them. There are so many out and then when I try to make my card there is just too much stuff laying about and I am not even a neat nick. The trim on the coat was done by first putting stickles down and then putting polar flower soft over top. The ribbon and boots have diamond glaze on them. The center of the small poinsettias have gold stickles in the center while the big ones have some gold beadz on them. The snow Tilda is standing on is done with liquid applique and glitter. The snowflakes and wind and pointsettias have crystal stickles on them. The dp is from bobunny. the little squares have flourishes from the angel company stamped on them. Added a few gold dew drops from Robin's nest on the corners. 
It is time to move on to Robin's blog here.
 Copics used:
reds - R59. R29, R27, R24, R22
greens for coat - G94, G85, BG96, G24, G21, G28
face - E21, E00, E000, R20
leaves - G07, G14, YG06
hair - E35, E55, Y21
staff - E57, E31
background - B23, BG000,B00, 00
boot soles - BV29, BV04
flower centers - Y13
bottom lace of dress - R00
I still have a couple of colors leftover that I don't remember where I put. lol
Hope you enjoy the blog hop. I know there will be many wonderful cards shared.
This card is also done for the challenge over on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge to use layers and flowers here.

Peggie, beautiful card. This is one of my favorite Tilda from that collection. I’ve used her a number of times because she is so fun to colour. You’ve done a beautiful job in colouring her. And I love all the little details that you’ve added. Terrific job you’ve done.

I’m like you when making a card. I’ve got too many things laying all around me on my HUGE table that I end up working on a one-foot square of clear space…LOL.

Hugs.
Norma
