Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

It is the 25th of the month which means it is time for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Hooray - a Christmas card done. If you have come from the very talented Norma Lee's blog you are on the right track. If you have just stumbled on to my blog you might want to start at the beginning by going to to see all the gorgeous cards. All the Magnolia stamps can be purchased at Diana's store here.
I just purchased Tilda with a Heart and just had to use her for this card.

Of course I wanted to make her more Christmasy so I cut out the heart and added the poisettia, also a Magnolia stamp and put Tilda's hand on the flower. The pot and the words are from the angel compamy. I drew in the stem of the poinsettia. I am getting to be quite the artist. lol. Everything is colored with copics. The shoes and the pot have diamond glaze applied. Lots of crystal stickles are added. Here is a close-up of Tilda.

And here is the inside.

I'm going to add some stickles to the poinsettias here but the front wasn't dry yet.
The dp is from bo bunny.
Copics used:
skin: E000, E00, E11
dress: G000, G00, G02, G14
poinsettia: R59, R29, R27, R24, Y17, Y11
pot: W7, W5, W3, G000
shadows: Y17, Y13, Y11, W5

Hope you enjoyed my creation. It is the first card I have done all year. I was so busy making my calendar pages I just haven't done any. Felt good.
Now you are off to see Robin's blog.

More Calendar Pages

I can't believe it is almost the end of February and I still don't have all these calendars done. I have one completed and the other four are getting there. Then I look at it like I am almost making 60 cards so it is really amazing I am this far. 

July - I drew my own tree. I am such an artist. lol

August - I had made an explosion box a while ago and took it apart to make this page.

September - I was so upset when I found out they discontinued making this card stock. I just love it. Oh well off to find a new favorite card stock.



December - this dp is from nitwit - you print it yourself. Pretty cool. That way you don't have so much paper sitting around - you just print what you want when you want.

Hope you enjoyed this calendar. Off to eat some lunch and then go to work. We had 9 inches of snow and the parking lot wasn't plowed so I couldn't get in. My son is going to drop me off because it still isn't plowed.

Calendar Pages

I can't believe I'm still not done with my calendars and January is already over. I had company, I was sick, I had to clean and my creativity is just running slowly. Well I am half done. Maybe I will complete the calendar by the time February is over. I'll just make those months 2012. lol Without much comment here are the next pages.

Note that I colored the wrong part for the hands. Oh well I am not turning back. I drew my own bench for the March calendar.

Off to try and make some more pages.
