Its a Christmas card blog hop...

Yes its that time of the month again...boy the 25th rolls around quickly doesnt it!!

yes its time for the March Magnolialicious Christmas All Year Round christmas Card blog hop...phew that was a mouthful!!!

So if you have stumbled across my blog by accident you need to go start here so you dont miss any of the fabulous christmas card eye candy!

But if you are here from Lauren's blog then you are on the right track.

ok on with my card.
Now my card is very much a non-traditional card. The colours are so not what you would probably think off for Christmas but it orignally started life as a birthday card. But I was running late with a card for this hop so I slapped on a Christmas sentiment and tada!!! a Christmas card. Luckily this new stamp that I got from Magnolia-licious is so versatile. She is part of the Fairytale/wedding/pirate range which isnt officially out yet but Diana is amazing and got us a heap before they were released. She does have them up for pre-order now though so if you go over for a gander you might just be able to pre-order her.



And here is a close up of Miss Tilda. I have paper pieced all her clothing...even her wee little socks. The paper is all a Making Memories range from a few years ago. think it was called Olivia but dont quote me on that cause i'm probably wrong lol. i just know I loved it and brought heaps of it way back when.
Ok from here you now need to go to Leslys blog to continue on with the hop.

The nitty gritty....
i have used labels 4 nestie for the part that Tilda is on and petite scalled large ovals for the sentiment. large purple and large white flower are Green Tara brand ...the leaves and roses are Prima. The pearl spray is from Wild Orchid crafts. The embossing folder is Caramello by Cuttlebug. i have also used Silver Kindyglitz for that touch of bling.

Tilda is colour with copics for the skin E000, E00, E11 and R20. FC pencils and OMs for hair, shoes and presents.

TFL and I hope you enjoy the hop!!!
