I wanted to hurry up and get this post up before five o'clock because, a) there is a challenge that I want to enter ending at that time and, b) I have to hurry and finish cleaning because my mom is coming in from Milwaukee this evening. I have been running around like a crazy woman this entire week with putting up Christmas decorations, making decorations, bringing the Christmas china in from storage, trying to get this card made... PHEW! I need a long winters nap!
It has been cloudy and raining all day long and so my pictures didn't come out all that well, but I will try again tomorrow and post some more. (It's still raining and these are the best I could do. Still much better than yesterday's though),
This beautiful little lady is Jingle Jangle Tilda and she is from last year's A Christmas Story collection. She is going to finish off that tree by hanging her red bells on the empty side. I have colored her up in my Copics, inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used Frantage for snow.
I used some word paper (from stash) for the background of my card and then printed out a red snowflake patterned paper from Raspberry Road to add over that. I made a frame from corrugated paper and the tree is from a Sizzix/Tim Holtz die. I went crazy with the Frantage on everything. The snowflakes on the right are buttons from Joann's that came in a decent sized bag and it only cost me $3 with a coupon. Oh, the possibilities with these just get the creative juices flowing! Hee Hee! There is a tag tucked in the top of the card that reads "May all your Christmases be white".
Thank you for putting up with my craziness! Have a great day and better tomorrows!
