Magnolia-licious contest ...

Hi everyone, please don't forget about the absolutely fabulous Magnolia-licious contest that Diana is running right now. You can find all the details on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. I hope you'll be able to carve a little time to create a project - something other than a card using both Mini Wrapped Tilda and Mini Unwrapped Tilda. The prizes are awesome! Just AWESOME!!! Would you like to win a Kindle? That's what the first prize winner will get! Now tell me that isn't just the most fabulous and generous prize ever!! You have until Sunday December 18th to enter. So, put aside the gift wrapping, shopping, baking and decorating and take a little time for your passion and craft something beautiful.

Now I have a card front to share with you. I just had to put my Sweet Christmas Dreams Minis to some use this season. I designed this card front to send to Diana to use at CHA! Sheesh! CHA is in January, long past Christmas, so here I am with a card front and no time to make it into a card! GASP! I just have to make something with it....I'm thinking...I'm thinking...well, while I'm thinking, here it is...

Did a little masking with this one - oh such fun!!! I don't have a list of Copics, but the dp is from Magnolia and the sentiment is from AmyR - Handy Christmas Greetings.

Here is a closer look at Tilda and the open doorway. I tried to make the glow of the light reflect on her clothing...



Thank you for taking the time from your hectic schedule to come and play! I love the visits....

Merry Christmas hugs and blessings...

Barb

  22. Just love your card, Barb! You certainly did get the warm glow on Tilda's clothes. Your coloring is fantastic on those minis. I think your marker points must be much smaller than mine! Fabulous card.
