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.

Peggie, you are so creative. What a brilliant idea replacing the heart with a poinsettia. I love this adorable Tilda. I have her too, but haven't had a chance to play with her. Lovely background DP. Terrific job on the card.

As usual Peggy, your card is beautiful - Cute Tilda with the Poinsettia and the way you have her framed really makes her pop. What a clever idea to use this image this way. Love it!

Barb Hardeman said...

Adorable, adorable, adorable! So original to replace the heart with the Poinsettia and the sentiment is perfect. Three down and only 10 more to go!
