Winter Wishes ...

Been a while since my last post, I did say as one of my new year resolutions I would make
one Christmas card a week so there wouldn't be a mad rush, needless to say that didn't happen.  I decided to make one a day in the month of October, well I have made some but I am still behind.  One down many many more to come.  I did purchase several of the new Stamp & Cutz from Magnolia but the others weren't Christmas so I inked this one up first!

I have made a bauble shaped card today using one of the new Stamp & Cutz from Magnolia, this one is called Cocoa Tilda & Snow Flurries, so that is the stamp and snowflake dies as a duo.

I have also used the Magnolia log stamp from way back when.  Flowers, buttons, ribbons, pine cone charms, star die, tree die, berries.  The branches, twigs & holly are from various Doohickey Club kits. Hand stitched & coloured with Promarkers.  The bauble card blank itself was cut on my Silhouette.

The pretty papers are from NITWIT COLLECTIONS

A DL sized card inside a pocket today to share using Burger Tilda which I have had for an age and it has never seen ink and the worst thing is there are plenty more that I need to use.

This is definately fully loaded so here goes - flowers, doily, love charm, spoon/fork charms, ribbons, sequins & pearls.
The bunting, honeycomb, cloud, bee, hexagons, foliage and sun are from various Doohickey Club kits.  The sentiment 'Hope you're feeling special today' is from Stampin Up Garden in Bloom stamp kit heat embossed in silver.  Lace green border.  Shabby chic created using Gesso.
