My 1st Christmas card for 2012..

Yes I know I feel like groaning too..lol I am trying to make at least 2 or more crimbo cards a month
I got way behind last year, so this way its not too much of a marathon.. well thats what I tell meself..
especially when the sun is shinning, its a gorgeous sunny bright but nippy day on the north east coast UK..
This gorgeous Tilda was a gift so sorry dont know where its from only to say she is a special edition..
Tilda is coloured with prismas & markers & glamour dust sparkle.. I used this gorg nestie shape,
in fact I’ve used it a number of times lately.. I followed the sketch & colours for  TOMIC chall. 
you can just see the sliver mesh strip across the centre..plenty of white/blue.. for the background
card I put a piece of card thro a CB E/bossing folder (called snow flakes) yes dont look anything
like the S/flakes.. lots of matting & layering, blue DP is magnolia… for the magnolia trees stamp
I used a versamark pad & embossed with white EB powder..& cut them out..Magnolia Doo Hickey
fence die..thats about it for this likkle Tilda ..

Challs for me card
TOMIC chall  Sketch colour combo Sliver/white/blue & glitter
Simon Says Stamp chall   something NEW ( I have used new Tilda Stamp)
Just magnolia chall.  Simon Says special monthly chall (anything goes & or something new)
Thanks for stopping by see you soon

What a great idea - I may have to start making Christmas cards as I too ended up not making anywhere near enough.
