My Friends Christmas card

Hi blogger friends!

I had a terrific Christmas day with my sister and her family. Here is a photo of Doug and myself. We have had such a hard three years battling cancer but 2011 is going to be a stress free year.
This is the card I made for my dear friend Patti Jo. She sent me this stamped image so the least I could do was make her a Christmas card with it. Just had a butterflies fly around when it is snowing?

Snuck another Christmas card in

Yes! I know I said I had finished my Christmas cards but I found I needed one more.
This one is very glittery. The cardstock I have used is a thick glitter one. It looks real nice in real life.
I used Spellbinder nestabilities to put Tilda on. She is colored with distress inks and I then put  Star Dust Stickles on her dress which was colored with Victorian Velvet distress re inkers. The tag is also a Spellbinders tag and the sentiment is computer generated. Hope you like it.

This is a close up showing the glitter

And this is showing the little angel charm. Rather cute I thought.

Christmas Hugs

Hi Friends!
This Magnolia stamp of Tilda is called 'Tilda wants a hug' and she can brought from Diana here. She is from the 2010 Christmas collection. My dear friend gave this stamp to me for Christmas. Wasn't I blessed?
The card is quite a simple one for posting. I have found out the hard way how much it costs to post cards with all the trimmings.
I have colored Tilda once again with Distress inks.
Her dress is colored with Dusty Concord
Hair: Walnut stain
Face: Antique Linen
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Holly in her hair: Bundled sage and berries.. Barn door.
