Wishing you a very Merry Christmas....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and ready for Christmas. I managed to get out at last with the snow thawed a bit and got my Christmas food shop. So happy I was beginning to panic lol! I can't believe Santa will be arriving tonight my Grandson Luca is so excited he could burst!



I have made another Christmas card today. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads and have distressed the background with old paper. I have edged this and everything else with walnut stain. The stickles I have added are stardust and platinum. I heat embossed the moon and the baubles with clear embossing powder.

The tag is a Magnolia Doohickey die and the flowers Wild Orchid. 



Well I will say goodbye now and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the joy and magic of Christmas and thank you so much for your visit. My family will be visiting Christmas and Boxing day I can't wait to be spending this special time with them.

 A Very Happy Christmas! 



love

Leslie Avila said...

Kim,
Once again you've made a stunning Christmas card! I got some water coloring paper and I'm going to give it a whirl.(wish me luck...lol).
January first is coming up and after viewing some of your photos, you should give Project 365 a shot. It's a photo a day for a year. It's a great way to capture memories from the year and to always be having your camera ready to shoot. Anyways, something to think about...well Christmas is tomorrow, and I hope you have an awesome day.
Blessings to you, my scrap guru! : )
