Santa coming to town......

Hello,

I hope you are all well and life is good for you.

Well I have now decided that I better get into the Christmas spirit and make a start on my Christmas cards. So here is my first 2011 Christmas card using one of the new Magnolia Sweet Dreams images. I love her.


I have coloured Winter Tilda with distress inks and for the sprinkly spronkly I have used Star Dust and Gold stickle glue.

I have decorated the inside.


The snowflakes and border are Magnolia Doohickeys dies and I have distressed this and everything on my card with walnut stain.

Here is the inside left.


The sentiment is a Magnolia script.

Here is the inside right.


So love the Magnolia fence Doohickey die.


Well thank you so very much for your visit.

I wish you a fabulous rest of the week, and whatever you are doing take care.

love

kim x
