Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Can you believe it - Christmas is in one month. Fortunately I have many Christmas cards done in part because of the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. This is the last Christmas Blog Hop of the year. If you have arrived by accident go here to start from the beginning. If you have come from the uber talented Norma Lee here then you are on the right track.
Here is my card.


I used this this Angel Tilda. You can get her from Magnolia-licious here. I see she is out of stock but should be back in stock in a couple of weeks. I had a bit of trouble with this. At first I started to color her face but realized I was using colors I didn't like so I stamped her again. Then I cut her out in a circle but she was off center so I cut her out and layered her on the blue cardstock. That let to the problem of what dp to use with her. Nothing seemed right as most papers had green with the red and it just didn't seem to go. So off to the store to look for paper. I usually don't do that. I use what I have on hand. I buy lots but don't go out to buy to match a card already started. I found DCWV Christmas Combo Stack that seemed to work. As I was putting it together I found some lace on my desk but it was ecru so I went looking and found this white ribbon my mother used for the bunnies she used to make. I wove the red ribbon into the lace. My mother would have liked this card as red was her favorite color. This angel reminds me of a stuffed angel my dd had. She was dressed in red with blond hair. Tilda is colored with copics. The blue rhinestones are from Queen & Co. The poinsettia is from the hero arts. The love ticket is from the dp pack. Hope you enjoyed this card and this blog hop. Hope to be back next year. Next you are off to Robin's blog here.
