Midweek Magnolia's Challenge DT Card - Come & get cozy with us

Hello there my lovelies how are you all? I'm sorry I haven't been around or been anything, my hubster & eldest son fitted me a new oven & hob the other day.  This stupid little voice after said to me 'Clean all the cupboards out & have a good sort out'............damn I hate those voices in my head..........so yep guess what I've been doing ;0(

Anyhoo's what you are really here for is to find out the next challenge at Midweek Magnolia's which starts today (ssshhh yes I know I'm late)............
WARM & COZY
.......we want to see either furry cuddly animals or you can use Tilda's if she has a coat on.
I have gone with furry & snuggly............I loved this stamp as soon as he was released.........
...............then it took me til now to ink him up........yep I'm hanging my head real low!! Isn't he soooooooo darn cute & I love him cus he's suitable for all year round.........shame it took me nearly a year to use him then!!!

The papers are the yummi-licious MME 'Vintage Christmas' which I've inked with walnut & stitched the edges with my machine.

The flower I made using a Marianne die & the paper for the flower & stockings are MME 'Mistletoe Magic'. The pearl & lace are from my stash, I machine stitched the lace in place.

The stamp is Magnolia's 'Coco With Present' sorry I cant link him I can no longer find him in the shop I got him from :0(
I coloured him with my distress markers but I wanted a vintagey look to him so added bits of black prisma pencil & blended using sansador.

I decorated the inside as always but made a pocket for tags to go into, one to write on & the other will be for a sentiment. The red check ribbon is East Of India, its so lush ;0)

The sentiment is LOTV 'Handwritten Phrases'. The doily & pearls are from my stash. The stockings are MB 'Precious Stockings' die. I've also added a gorgeous stocking charm to the bow on the ribbon.

Well I'm off to set some bread away in my brad machine, I found it yesterday tucked away at the back of the cupboard so its now permanently on the bench. I miss the smell of fresh bread. I'm ashamed I had it hidden it the cupboard :0(

Anyhoo's my lovelies thats it for me, hope you will play along with us this fortnight in our 'Warm & Cozy' challenge, we certainly are needing warmer clothes now, although we are still having the ceiling fan on at night in our bedroom & the heating hasn't gone back on yet...........strange!!

Tatty bye & thank you for stopping by, huge hugs to all mmwah
