Be Merry.......

Hellooooooo friends!

I've made this Magnolia card topper with the Colour Create Challenge in mind..... the theme is pink, green and cream with the added option of frosting. Here is one of last year's Tilda images combined with a wonderful Pixie Cottage stamp showing a Christmas Door..... this one was designed by the uber talented Sandra Hammer.

The sweet little snowmen were cut from a sheet of MME design paper and the sentiment is a little cling stamp which I have a feeling is Autumn Leaves.

I decided it would look nice if Tilda was holding a Christmas wreath (maybe she's doing a bit of door-to-door selling, lol)...... so I punched out some tiny Martha Stewart leaves and layered them in a circle, then just added some flat backed red pearls.

And I couldn't resist frosting the snow drifts on the door and adding the sweetest little gingham ribbon to the door front...... very festive don't you think, lol!

I'm really sorry I haven't been around to everyone's blogs in a while..... I'm just getting over a nasty cold virus and have been pooped! Trying to put that right over the next day or two, promise!

Take care and enjoy the rest of your day ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
