Snowy Tilda & A Pic Of Me & Payton

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? I'm sorry I wasnt along with a card yesterday I had my grand-daughter at the weekend so there was housework etc to catch up with :0(
Anyway I do have a card to share with you today using one of the new stamps just released from Magnolia. Now I told myself I wasnt buying any of these as I have so many uninked christams stamps...............yea I know I'm weak!!!!!!!!!
This is 'Snowy Tilda' from the Magnolia Christmas Story collection, she does have a snowflake in her hand but I replaced it with a metal snowflake charm but cut off the loop. I paper pieced her dress with scrap paper & added prisma pencil for a bit of shading.

I've used Magnolia 'Christmas Toys' paper & inked the edges with Walnut DI.

I cut out 2 trees using a Marianne die. The ribbon is from my stash as is the tag punch I used for the sentiments. Added 'Icicles' from a Marianne die. Added Stardust Stickles & a pearl using my Pearl pen in the centre.

The pom-pom trimming I got from here.

I havnt decorated inside because TBH I'm not very happy with the colouring on her gloves & boots so I wouldn't be able to send it to anyone. Instead I will just turn her into a Christmas picture or she will stay in my hobbit on my card shelf lol.

Ingredients used..............
Magnolia 'Snowy Tilda' stamp - Sir Stamp A Lot
Marianne Christmas Tree die - Sir Stamp A Lot
Stardust Stickles - MCH
Magnolia paper - Sir Stamp A Lot
Poinsettia's - WOC
Viva Pear Pen - MCH
Bobble Trimming - Ebay

Here is a piccy of me playing with Payton saturday night, we have got Natalie's sensory foil blanket & fibre optics & giving payton a go with them lol. Natalie's lurves these. She is looking at her grandad here pulling faces.........
So glad I wasnt looking up when this was took as it was a no make-up day lol. We took her out the next day to buy her a new Adidas tracksuit & I had got her some Adidas trainers off the net & they arrived few days before so it was only right get her a tracksuit to match lol.

Anyways my lovelies Payton is coming over in a bit but I will be round at some point during today & tonight to catch up with you all. Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & a HUGE MAHOOSIVE welcome to my new followers so honoured to have you here mmwah.

Vicky this is beautiful. Fantastic use of layout and embellishments, shame the beautifully coloured image is a 'Mumpy' (my name for tilda girls who all look as if they have mumps and cant speak or smell.... but everyone to their own choices)Payton looks adorable it's amazing how quickly they grow.
Hope you're having a good week
