Good morning everyone and happy 'hump' day! Doesn't it come around quickly!!
Well I'm really enjoying making my Christmas cards this year and I have to say I've made a much earlier start than normal! I usually make quite a few Autumn and Halloween cards at this time but have been drawn to Christmas for some reason..... actually I'm sure it's because of the amazing Webster's Pages papers I have. They are just scrumptious and I find myself able to create lovely scenes with them, as I have done on this card.
I must admit when I first saw this Tilda from the latest Magnolia collection I didn't think she seemed that festive..... that is until I realised she was carrying beautiful Winter amaryllis stems! And I suppose she can be used at any time of year really because you could easily make the flowers look like cut tulips too! Anyway, whatever the season she certainly is delish, what a cutie!!
I pimped my Melissa Frances sentiment a bit you know..... oh I do like to pimp things, lol! I picked one rub-on from the Spring set which said 'The Beauty Of Spring' and chopped off the Spring bit..... then I took a rub-on from the Winter set and just used the word 'Winter'..... and voila!
Other than the papers, sentiment and image, the only other thing on my card is some Sizzix branches which I cut out in white and then coloured..... and some Martha Stewart punched mini hydrangea flowers which I thought could pass for Winter blooms too!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
