May Your Christmas Be Filled With Warmth and Love

Hello Everyone!! I can't believe how long it has been since my last posting!! I'm so sorry that I have been away for so long!! I hope this finds you all doing well! I've been busy trying to get everything ready for Christmas! I'm so behind this year!!  I was able to make a few cards for some sweet  friends though!

I decided to make a Pocket Card using Lifestyle Crafts Treat Bag Die. For the background and the striped border,  I used Echo Park All I Want For Christmas Digi Design Papers. I stamped Santa's Helper Tilda on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored her using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Hero Arts Ultrafine Prisma Glitter to Tilda's Santa Hat and Wink of Stella to the sleeves of Tilda's dress. I fussy cut Tilda and mounted her to a Christmas Sweets Frame Die Cut that I downloaded for free from Paper Wishes. The little gingerbread man and lady are also from the same download. I added some little peppermint candies that I made from some Perler Beads. I found a tutorial on Youtube that shows how to make them from Craftyirina. I cut the Candy Cane Heart - #52908 using the Silhouette.  The doily was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Tiny Doily Die - DL234. The mini pompom trim and candy striped baker's twine are from my stash. The little red felt heart is from a Christmas Card Making Kit that I found at the 99 cent Store. There were all sorts of little embellishments in the kit.


The saying that I used is from Uptown Rubber Stamps - Holly Pond Hill. Unfortunately the company has gone out of business. The glittered heart is also from the embellishment kit.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I have entered my card into the following challenges:

Tilda's Town Challenges #134 - Happy Holidays

Midweek Magnolias #104 - Anything Goes

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Big Hugs,
