Wishing you a very Merry Christmas....


I hope you are all well and ready for Christmas. I managed to get out at last with the snow thawed a bit and got my Christmas food shop. So happy I was beginning to panic lol! I can't believe Santa will be arriving tonight my Grandson Luca is so excited he could burst!

I have made another Christmas card today. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads and have distressed the background with old paper. I have edged this and everything else with walnut stain. The stickles I have added are stardust and platinum. I heat embossed the moon and the baubles with clear embossing powder.

The tag is a Magnolia Doohickey die and the flowers Wild Orchid. 

Well I will say goodbye now and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the joy and magic of Christmas and thank you so much for your visit. My family will be visiting Christmas and Boxing day I can't wait to be spending this special time with them.

 A Very Happy Christmas!

I loe all the layers on this, Kim and the colours you've used. You always put so much detail into your cards and projects and it makes them so special!

I love how "soft" this project is and the distress ink coloring (which is one I am still perfecting).. This is just like a soft winter snow - lovely!
