67 days til Christmas!!!

That's right, there are only 67 day left until Christmas! Ack! Guess I'll have to buckle down and get to work on my holiday cards, eh? Here's one I made a while ago, but didn't get around to sharing yet.

After seeing all of the adorable holiday cards featuring Tilda on various blogs that I read, I was itching to make a Tilda holiday card. Unfortunately, the Magnolia winter/christmas 2008 stamp club hasn't shipped yet, and I don't own any winter Tilda's. I went digging through my stash of pif images, and found Tilda with flowered jeans. Doesn't she look cute in holiday colors? I used copics to color her, and then added stickles to her wings.

Tilda needed something to sit on, so I masked off the cat on Whiskers & Fur by Penny Black so I only stamped the present. This was also colored in with copics, and then the gold ribbon had Beeswax Shimmerz painted on it to make it sparkle. It didn't photograph very well, but trust me, Shimmerz are so pretty in real life! I'm hoping Santa will bring me a few more colors for Christmas...

I debated about what to use for embellishments on this card, and decided on little pieces of tissue paper. After all, what says Christmas morning better than bits of tissue / wrapping paper on the floor? LOL!

Once again, you are so creative! This is one of the best cards yet for Christmas and I just love that crumpled up tissue around her. Super job!
